Re: remount boot media with RW flag



This may help, Daniel dropped a hint about using ext formatted files
as persistent storage in the 2.0 documentation and for me it has
worked like a charm. I can create an image file to use with
persistence on anything but NTFS so the 4G limitation applies but then
still browse to live image where on the USB device root still has RW.
I hope this is helpful. It has allowed me to continue to use the USB
storage in Windows and still access and use the same storage when
booted into Debian Live from the same device. A feature I hope
continues with the 3.0 evolution...
