View Full Version : no live usb support?
5th January 2010, 01:18 PM
I tried UNetbootin for creating a live usb version of the latest Fedora 12 but it didn't work. It couldn't find media. There were other error messages.
I went to this section and am alarmed at the number of posts about live usb versions not working.
Is Fedora not supporting live usb or just having trouble having a workable version?

I've used Fedoras liveusb-creator in Fedora 12 and also from a Windows box without issue and just recently
created a F12x86_64 live-usb and installed it to a desktop. Maybe unetbootin is having an issue or you can
plug in the usb device and open a terminal and enter:$ df -h and it should list the device so you can possibly enter it manually. :)

Fedora is certainly supporting live-usb and even created a tool for that: liveusb-creator. This tool not only creates working live-usb media from regular iso, it is also available for Windows and Fedora. I created several boot media with liveusb-creator and never had a problem.

I'll have to investigate liveusb-creator then. :)
I want to check out the latest Fedora 12 on my laptop so I was using the Live CD but wanted something faster.
I want to eventually install Mepis 8.5 (like Debian) and Fedora 12 as my main distros on my Thinkpad T41 laptop. I figured the latest KDE (and Gnome) should be okay for it. It seems responsibe enough on the live media which is, albeit, slow when it's via CD.

If you already downloaded the iso, just install the Windows version of liveusb-creator and point it to the place where the iso is stored.

I just tried it. They must still be working on it?
It's WAY too Mickey Mouse. No wonder there's so many posts about it of problems.
Honestly, I can't believe it's being recommended.
It couldn't use my Live CD. Then it wouldn't download.
So, there is no support which is what I asked. :(
