After only few days from the release of Ubuntu 7.10, the pendrivelinux.com has released the new manual to install this new version of the famous Linux distro on a USB key and we have posted a short but effective review about this new manual on our Linux Page (in Spanish). As usual the instruction contained on the site are very clear and simple to follow. We have been able to create our Ubuntu 7.10 Key in less than 40 minutes and without any particular problem. Unfortunately, we were not able to save the changes we had made to personalize our USB key but we really enjoy the possibilities offered by a so powerful OS as Ubuntu (if someone knows how to save the changes, please, post a comment – Thanks). Strongly recommended!
There is a hidden feature in the syslinux.cfg:
the label to maintain the changes is modified to declare the “persistent” option in this mode:
DEFAULT vmlinuzGFXBOOT bootlogo
APPEND file=preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper initrd=initrd.gz quiet splash —
menu label ^Start Ubuntu in persistente mode
append file=preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper persistent initrd=initrd.gz quiet splash – –
TIP: The vmlinux and initrd.gz are copied in the root directory
