Re: Persistence file on the same partition of the live filesystem
The partition containing the live-media gets mounted read-only. The
persistence department needs to be writable!
There are probably good reasons for mounting it read-only by default but
I don't know why there is no means to override that without manually
editing the script 9990-misc-helpers.sh
This subject has been raised before but didn't get much interest.
I have used such a configuration with persistent file in the live-media
partition, usually a single FAT32 USB, since Lenny without problems, I
still do in Sid.
I have a patch for current sid but am not sure if I am free to post it
here as it is "unofficial" and maybe not so clean. The "black_list" is
not the problem, at least if booting "findiso"
