persistence and custom kernel
I add to this,
In some machines searching the floppy devices for a live filesystem gives an
We can solve that editing the live-initramfs package and excluding floppies
from the devices
that lines contains text like that (not exactly, that is my own version):
echo /sys/block/* | tr ' ' '\n' | grep -ve '/ram' -ve '/loop'
and we should exclude /fd devices also
grep -ve '/ram' -ve '/loop' -ve '/fd'
