Ok! I got this to work. thank you Ubuntu developers but talk about screwing
in your own seat!
Is there an easier way to help people create USBs? On SLAX we created a zip
file then there was a boot file (2 versions actually one for linux and one
for windows) that is run to make the stick bootable:
Is there a way I can I copy my USB and make the new one bootable so I don't
have to go through the whole process again?
The USB boots up to Sugar, which is what I want. Is there a way for me to
also access the underlying Ubuntu?
Here is my feedback on making the existing directions more friendly.
1. Download the stock
Yup, I can do this.
1. Boot from this CD and from there, use
LiveUSB<http://klik.atekon.de/liveusb>to copy the system to USB stick
(use a stick with 1-2 GB capacity as
problems have been reported with larger ones)
Ok so when you follow this link you eventually end up at this page.
Please provide instructions on exactly what to download. I picked
Then also provide instructions on exactly what the user should do to install
it. I fumbled around and eventually it opened, but I couldn't actually tell
someone else how to do it.
Then provide instruction on exactly which options to set. I picked both
persistence and flash and the flash ended up giving me an error.
1. If you use the persistence option, you need to replace
casper/initrd.gz on the stick with the bugfixed
The Casper direction is write protected. Please provide instructions on how
to deal with that.
What is this? Why am I doing it?
1. Add the file
the directory casper/ on the USB stick
Again the write protection on Casper made this more of a challenge then
might be expected.
