Comments on: How to Make openSUSE 11.0 GM Live USB Blogs and Ramblings of the openSUSE Members Fri, 06 Mar 2020 17:50:09 +0000 hourly 1 By: swordcatchr Thu, 19 Feb 2009 16:34:09 +0000 Update: thanks google i found a solution (but unfortunately i don’t understand the reason why this works).

I had to erase the file named: “config.isoclient”
and i renamed the file “config.kde.isoclient” to “config.isoclient”.

Anyone who can explain me, why the original file was empty and what the entries in the other file are for?
Thanks in advance.

As a little unexperienced SUSE beginner, i’m glad that i’ve found this tutorial.
But i got stuck now.

I used the Live-CD-Image from this source:
and modified the initrdud as described above.

The only exception is the linuxrc-file, there was no line like “/bin/sh” where i could start to display the executed commands. The other shell called in the first line is taken out with a comment-sign “#”, so i didn’t know how to display the called commands in the terminal window.

The Stick will boot but i get this lines (copied by hand):

—-begin of copy—–

—–> Probing module: ata_piix
—–> Probing module: uhci-hcd
—–> Probing module: ehci-hcd
cddevs /dev/sda /dev/sdb
i /dev/sda1
cddev /dev/sda1
i /dev/sdb1
cddev /dev/sda1:/dev/sdb1
—–> Mounting live boot drive…
—–> Failed to mount RW root filesystem
—–> shellException: providing shell…
(none):/ #

—-end of copy—–

Booting from a real Live-CD works fine.
Has anybody a hint for me, why the filesystem will not be mounted?
Thanks in advance.

Is there is a solution for this error “Failed to detect CD drive !” ?
I tried to make my initrdud but it’s always the same. I always have this error .

Thanks in advance


By: Scott Fri, 05 Sep 2008 22:56:10 +0000 I made a change to the include function as I was using a different partition. Just the for loop is changed:

for i in $cddevs;do
for j in 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 # fixme; looks only in first 10 partitions
echo j $j
echo devi $devi
if [ -b $devi ]; then
test -z $cddev && cddev=$devi || cddev=$cddev:$devi
echo cddev $cddev

I’ve just read your tutorial on your local blog about running a live iso through usb flash drive, and i’ve tried but failed due to this exact error. 😀 Glad that i’m not the only one having this error. Will try replace the file now. Thanks for the tutorial. 8)

By: Vavai Thu, 26 Jun 2008 03:55:53 +0000 Hi Johnny,

I’ll be update with the requested initrdud.Thanks for your info.

By: Rohan Dhruva Mon, 23 Jun 2008 07:23:52 +0000 Hi,

Nice guide, but I found 2 mistakes-

1) The mount command formatting is not correct. Maybe it is caused by wiki-markup issues.
2) You mkdir /mnt/squash but then mount it to /media/squash 🙂
