Talk:SoaS Blueberry Instructions
With the soas-2-blueberry.iso, leave out the options for a separate persistent home:
- download the script:
- Use this script in Terminal for soas-v2-Blueberry.iso: (/dev/sd(x)1 is your USB device) use partition manager to determine what it is.
sudo ./livecd-iso-to-disk.sh --overlay-size-mb 400 soas-2-blueberry.iso /dev/sd(x)1
# ./livecd-iso-to-disk.sh --overlay-size-mb 400 --delete-home ./soas-2-blueberry.iso /dev/sd(x)1 Verifying image... ./livecd-iso-to-disk.sh: line 385: checkisomd5: command not found Are you SURE you want to continue? Press Enter to continue or ctrl-c to abort Copying live image to USB stick Updating boot config file Initializing persistent overlay file 400+0 records in 400+0 records out 419430400 bytes (419 MB) copied, 48.6429 s, 8.6 MB/s Installing boot loader USB stick set up as live image! #
- The older version of the script, shown below, will complete successfully, but the new installation startup process will have trouble finding the home folder and fail to complete.
Older versions of SOAS:
\Normally,the livecd-iso-to-disk installation has the advantage over the liveusb-creator installation method by allowing a persistent /home/liveuser folder with the --home-size-mb NNN option. This feature would allow you to update the OS image while keeping the user files (by running the script against your existing installation but leaving out the --home-size-mb NNN option).
- Run it as root, making sure to pass the correct USB device and to set overlay and home size appropriately, depending on the stick size.
sudo ./livecd-iso-to-disk.sh --overlay-size-mb 300 --home-size-mb 160 --delete-home --unencrypted-home soas-strawberry.iso /dev/sd(x)1
- The --delete-home option is used to avoid an error message while requesting both a new home (with --home-size-mb) and a persistent home (indirectly with --unencrypted-home). You wouldn't use the --delete-home option on an upgrade of the operation system only.
Depending on the size of your USB stick, you may have to decrease --overlay-size-mb and --home-size-mb values (for example, for a 1-GB stick, use 200 for each).
- Watch out for errors in the output of the script, the script seems to ignore them! (and say all is fine on the last line).
