Package: live-image
Version: 1.0~a14-1
Severity: wishlist


It seems that, when using an image stored on an USB key, one has to dd
the image to the key, and then one can create a partition with the
remaining available space.

But if you want to update you USB key to a newer version of your image,
that sucks, because you lose what's on your partition.

It seems that Damn Small Linux allows to write the bootloader, and then
make it load the image from a fat partition.

Would this be possible to do with debian-live ?

after having re-read that bug again, i think this is not an issue anymore.

When you build a usb-hdd live-system, you get a binary.img that contains
the stuff from the binary directory, the bootlader and the partition table.

If consider you want to do everything yourself, such as updating a
previously created live-system, you can just copy
binary/live/filesyste.squashfs to your usb-stick and be done with it
(assumed you have the same kernel version, otherwise you also need to
copy binary/live/{vmlinuz,initrd.img}).

If this is not what you wanted, feel free to reopen again, I'm happy to
implement what you would like to have.
