LiveCD doesn’t find persistent file
I made a persistent file as described in the manual:
dd if=/dev/null of=live-rw bs=10M seek=1
/sbin/mkfs.ext2 -F live-rw
I put this file into the root directory of an USB stick (/dev/sdb1 with vfat).
Then I started my LiveCD with the boot option: “live persistent” and – as a second try – with the boot option: “live persistent persistent-path=/dev/sdb1”. But in all cases the persistent file wasn’t recognized. Then I put the file to my internal harddrive but I had no success too. For your information, I use Debian Lenny.
Please can you help me?
Thank you very much,
