Description Jeremy Katz 2007-04-02 15:26:08 EDT
Some USB sticks as shipped don't have the first partition marked as active.  We
should check to see if there's an active partition and if not, mark the one
we're using.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2007-04-04 16:29:27 EDT
Checking implemented and we tell the user how to fix it.  Automated fixing would
still be nice to have
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2008-03-25 04:58:02 EDT
Is this already fixed?
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2008-03-25 04:58:56 EDT
Should this be moved to livecd-tools?
Comment 4 Jesse Keating 2008-03-25 07:09:53 EDT
It's been fixed yes.  The script now alerts you that you have to mark a
partition as bootable if it isn't already.
