im tryin to create a persistent usb...i have read the wiki,..but since i dont have a HDD instalation of sabayon im not able to follow some of the steps...but i think i managed the steps coreectly usin windows and live dvd of sabayon!..
but..im running into some trouble when using xsistence..heres the steps i did
- Code: Select all
the wiki basically tell abt creating two partitions and installing live usb in one and enabling xsistence in the other..
so i created two fat32 primary partion in my 4gb pendrive from LIve dvd and installed the live system and modified the isolinux (added xsistence to boot line ) as specified...from windows..and then added the xsistence-mode file to other one from yeah live dvd..
the live dvd booted but..wen i look up the booting steps in "verbose" mode..[in the first boot it creates a file called..sabayon.xsistence.ext3 and wen i restart and boot again...]it says image found or something..and then unable to mount img file in /dev/sdb2..this is wat i find in the log file too..
i tried again changin the partition to wich xsistence was saved, to ext3..still no change..
then i tried as per the wiki instruction..i mean jsut added the xsistence to boot line and inserted another usb...with xsistence-mode file..still it doesnt work!...
im using sabayon4.1 kde version, and all the while..im booting the live dvd from usb as said above..
so..wer did i go wrong...can somebody guide me in the right direction..or tell me which step was wrong !
EDIT "i did everything almost as per the wiki,xept the first part i formatted the pen drive intially inot a ext3 and ext2 partiton and then installed the live dvd in ext2 and xsistene-mode in ext3...all from sabayon live dvd...,the first boot i get this error..something like this...cannot create xsisitence no loop back device found in /dev/sdb2 "
installing sabayon is not an option for me at the moment..
MY Question is does XSIstence work in sabayon 4.1??..at least plz somebody confirm this
Thanx in advance...sabayon as far as i have checked is really kewllll
