Dear Red Hat,
I am coming from the community: Scientific Linux 6.6 x64. I am trying to create a Live USB with persistence. Would one of our intrepid heroes please fix this for me?
The Stick is 16 GB. It is formatted as ext3.
# rpm -qa livecd-tools
According to this:
livecd-iso-to-disk --overlay-size-mb 512 /path/to/live.iso /dev/sdb1
"Replace /dev/sdb1 with the partition where you want to put the image.
Replace 512 with the desired size in megabytes of the persistent data, or overlay. The livecd-iso-to-disk shell script is stored in the LiveOS directory at the top level of the CD image. The USB media must have sufficient free space for the Fedora Live image, plus the overlay, plus any other data to be stored on the media."
This is my command line:
livecd-iso-to-disk --overlay-size-mb 13287 Fedora-Live-Xfce-x86_64-21-5.iso /dev/sdc1
After booting off the Live USB, I get the following:
df -kPT /
Filesystem Type 1024-blocks Used Available Capacity Mounted on
/dev/mapper/live-rw ext4 3030800 2431496 551468 82% /
Means the persistence is set at the default of 3GB.
Just noticed that Fedora Code 21 is at "livecd-tools-21.5-1.fc21.src.rpm" and EL 6 is on 13.4.5-1.
You may be able to fix this bug by just recompiling 21.5.1
I tried it, but got a bunch of weird error I can't figure out so I really do need you guys.
livecd-tools for rhel are from epel.
