I built a livecd based on the live-systems rescue image with a few tweaks of my own.
I added persistence to the livecd, and have verified that that works fine.
I copied the binary.hybrid.iso file to my 32gb usb key, nad allocated the remainder of the key to an ext4 linux partition with the label of persistence.
I created a persistence.conf file in the second partition with the following contents:
The first tiem I boot thte live key it works fine. It takes a while to boot, but that is to be expected.
I ran a few commands that updated the system including a git clone operation, and updated the /etc/rc.local file.
$ shutdown now –h
When I try to boot off of the live key again, it fails. I have no one available to read the screen to see what is being printed so can’t give any details on messages.
This only started happening when I included the /lib union and /etc lines in my persistence.conf file. Can these directories not be persisted?
