That’s right! You read the title properly… I’m using one Linux distribution to create a bootable USB stick of another distribution of Linux. It’s Linux-on-linux debauchery. In this instance I’m using Fedora 16, a 4GB USB stick, and an Ubuntu 11.10 ISO file.
Here’s roughly what you’ll be doing:
- download Ubuntu .iso
- install unetbootin-linux
- install additional packages (if prompted)
- run UNetbootin
Some of us have experienced a problem getting the Fedora 14 Live to work correctly on a USB drive. Well; today I finally found that solution and I’d like to share that knowledge and help heal the wounds. There are a couple routes to take in order to prepare your USB drive to boot Fedora. The more popular method is LiveUSB Creator. It was brought to my attention that Fedora 14 Live uses syslinux version 4.02. I’m guessing the website is dishing out their package with syslinux version 3.9.2. What to do!?
