Live + installer + Usb key
I just started to learn live-helper and I love it ! ;) And when I asked
questions in #debian-live, I got friendly answers !
I have a 2Gib USB key that I would like to use as following :
* Live system bootable as rescue system _and_ full persistant storage
* Demo'ing Debian and KDE4
* Rescue'ing servers with b0rken RAID/LVM/mdadm/whatever
* Reboot'ing Windows machines under a friendly and Universal OS
- up-to-date system [persistance]
- view and edit stuff [ditto]
* Graphical installer
* After demo'ing and convincing
* After failed rescue'ing :(
* Hijack Windows machines
* Multi-OS storage
* Windows XP/Vista, MacOS and obviously GNU/Linux
For now, I succeeded in having a binary.img with KDE4, splashy, insserv, but
I failed to get the persistance...
Ultimately, I would like to have an installer (sic) that would detect the
size of the USB and partition it accordingly.
Has this already been tried/succeeded ? Any hints to reach the multiple
goals ? Would this be of any other interest than mine ?
I think that such a USB key could be sort of an ultimate tool to demonstrate
the fantastic capabilities of Debian (as an OS and as a project). Maybe
s/KDE4/<insert your favorite desktop>/g ;)
