    Linux Full Install to USB stick

    Jarret B: Appreciate your responding. Well....no...it does not "answer" my problem(s). I've followed everything you've mentioned about "installing" to a USB drive(flashdive/pendrive/thumbdrive...etc) what I can't get figured out is how to "install" without having the lagging/freezing issues...

    Linux Full Install to USB stick

    Jarret; I would like to have an involved conversation with you(and your colleagues). That would be only if you choose so. It's quite possible(probable) it would be lengthy. That conversation would concern an "install" not live,(in this case-LM 19.1) on a pendrive and the many problems I'm...

    Linux Full Install to USB stick

    Re; atanere(Stan?) Yes, your probably right about the vfat. I had to look it up and it's just one of many "file systems" MSWin ignores. Yes, when I originally start an "install" the stick is formatted FAT32. The 'installation program" takes over the partition and changes it to ext4. So, I...

    Linux Full Install to USB stick

    RE: atanere Once again, I must THANK YOU for your assistance. I do understand how often I've been here and how, through no fault of anyone, I can't seem to "get-it-going". I will read Jarret's "newer thread" in hopes of finding my ever-elusive "remedy". " leave about 10-15% of the pendrive...

    Tell me what you want to learn

    Admin. Rob: You may regret asking this question.(?) OK, for a few years now, I've been having one failure after another trying to get a LinuxMint O.S. (a "full" install) to perform properly via a 2.0/3.0 pendrive. I experience severe lag and freezes and, sometimes, complete "crashes". I'd...

    Linux Full Install to USB stick

    REPLY: Jarret B "If you used the method of the Full Install then there is no 'persistence'. " Agreed. "If you are having lag issues then my first response is to make sure you have a USB stick that is USB 2.0" I've "Installed" on both 2.0-3.0 with same outcomes. Do wish to acknowledge your...

    Difficulties w/ LM 19.1 "live" persistence

    EVERYONE: Well, wish I could say this was going to be a "turned out well" chat. Alas, that's not to be. At the third session of the "install" the O.S. crashed completely. Once again I reinstalled. That "install" was fraught with lags and freezes. Tried to "work them out", but it just got...

    Difficulties w/ LM 19.1 "live" persistence

    RE: atanere Thank you for responding. Quite a bit of useful information. I will heed your advice and give those distro's a look/see. I'm still running/learning puppy, which is unique and quite a bit different than LM. But, it has been an ongoing "learning" experience and there's nothing...

    Difficulties w/ LM 19.1 "live" persistence

    RE: Technojunky & atanere; Wish to THANK both of you for your your contributions. I believe I'll go the "install" route. I (nor many others) can explain why I've encountered so many different issues since the use of LinuxMint 17.3. (if you look up my threads, you'll see what I'm talking...

    Difficulties w/ LM 19.1 "live" persistence

    RE: Technojunkie; Appreciate your response. I see that you've not read some of my other posts, but you are in a minority...by that I mean your stating it's OK to "install" to a stick. I for one, agree and that the "possible" degradation of the drive due to the many read/write cycles isn't...

    Difficulties w/ LM 19.1 "live" persistence

    Afternoon: Well, haven't quite got the "persistence" issue resolved. Thought I had, but later discovered the "fix" was not suited for my particular operation. (running 'live" in dd). Now, I've been investigating making a partition and labeling it 'casper-rw". But, as yet, have not attempted...

    Difficulties w/ LM 19.1 "live" persistence

    RE: wizardfromoz Thanx for your reply. Oh...I'm not so sure our age(?) is of consequence. I will look at the link you provided. Just a personal insight....why are so many opposed to running a Linux distro from a pendrive?. Therefore, if it's not your preference, OK...so what! There are some...

    Difficulties w/ LM 19.1 "live" persistence

    RE: Socket of Davis Thank you for your reply and your suggestion. Yes, it would be appropriate to amend the thread title Actually, I wonder if I should just go ahead and start another thread??? At this time, I'm going to implement the 'commands" I found. I "believe" those should...

    Difficulties w/ LM 19.1 "live" persistence

    RE: rado84; My apologies for misspelling your "nik". And, I was not referring to you when I was lambasting "the self-proclaimed expert". And I do appreciate, and stated so, your sharing what you've experienced. OK, what I wanted to do last evening and didn't have the time. I recently ran...
