We are working on a product that we want to release on a lenny USB stick
with persistence enabled. Will these problems be fixed for the Lenny
release? If not, is help appreciated implementing/fixing these features?
We can hire a developer for this.
maybe it is a good idea to update the wiki about how the persistence
stuff should work (using a 'live-rw' partition for example), and that
this feature is not enabled by now. I was searching a lot before I found
some note about it in the live-initramfs man page.
I can do this if you want.
