yes I got this to work on a 1GB USB with a lot of effort. I find it
generally slow to create the USBs. In general the fastest way to create a
new one is to copy it from one USB to another while booted into Linux.
However, I don't know if you can do that in Sugar and this particular setup
doesn't let you escape out of Sugar back down into Ubuntu as far as I could
Herea are my notes on how I did it.
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.
