Boot Linux From USB
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 12, 2005
I'm looking from some kind of *nix distro that is made to be booted off of a USB device, are there any?
I found a 256MB usb memorex stick in the parking lot and was thinking about putting it to some good use.
I was thinking of using a distro like damn small, but I wanted to make sure there wasn't a distro specificly designed for this purpose. If there isn't a distro made for this, some information on configuring damn small for this purpose would be helpful.
Ubuntu 14.04 does not boot on Mac Mini when usb drive is plugged in
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 2, 2015
OS X 10.7.5 on 2011 Mac Mini.
Ubuntu 14.04 installed on partition of hard drive.
External USB backup drive.
I can not boot ubuntu when the USB drive is attached.
If I disconnect the USB drive the ubuntu partition and bootable thumb drive (if attached) will be recognized by both Boot Manager and rEFInd.
If the USB drive *is* connected the ubuntu partition and bootable thumb drive (if attached) will *not* be recognized by Boot Manager and rEFInd.
It _seems_ as if when the USB drive is attached, that the machine recognizes only that drive, thinks it bootable and attempts to boot it, not seeing the real bootable devices at all.
This problem has seemed to "come and go" in the past. Any and all advice is welcomed.

Color display Linux/Ubuntu Vs MAC OS SL Vs Win7 ?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 10, 2011
I have been researching about this topic for quiet a while now and I still haven't found an answer anywhere.
I have been using all possible platforms and computers within the past 10 years.
And I am a big linux fan, especially ubuntu.
I use it mainly as my real os, here and there I do try out stuff on win7 and Mac OS snow leopard.
However I like tweaking the ubuntu and adjusting it to make it most convenient then any other os.
What I have noticed, that all these oses somewhat use a different color profile I guess.
Since using the exact same computer, with a different os, if i open a picture, the colors, contrast and brightness look a lot different.
I find that the Mac OS snow leopard, has the best quality when it comes to contrast and brightness and color hue.
I would like to know why that is and how I could make my ubuntu look the same.
At first I wasn't sure of it when I did notice it on occasion. However I have tried loading the different os on
Live usb wont boot (usb 3.0)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 17, 2013
I have a Ubuntu live usb .. and have set usb as the first device
When I try to boot . all I see is a black screen with a cursor blinking forever. When remove the USB drive . I get a Operating system load error on the black screen and then windows loads.
I tried installing Suse Linux . after I was unable to install Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit. Suse Linux had exactly the same fate. Black screen with blinking cursor.
1)Right now my bios is in legacy mode. Also my windows sysinfo32 shows secure boot as unsupported.
2)I am using windows 8 ( though my computer has bios in legacy mode)
3)the usb drive I am using is a usb 3.0 drive formatted as fat32 . I used universal boot installer and then unetbootin to write the iso to usb.
Where can I be going wrong . Both Ubuntu and suse Linux do no boot ??

access linux with connected mac using terminal through ssh
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 17, 2007
I have a Linux (openSuse 10.2) that is connected directly to a Mac with an Ethernet cable. The mac is sharing internet access with the Linux through the Ethernet.
Using the Mac's terminal window, how do I log into my linux via SSH? Do I need to do anything on my Linux terminal? Just this last weekend, a cowerker was able to do this using his Mac and my Linux, connected the same way. I don't remember how he did it. Any clues? Thanks much in advance.
Embeded linux newb USB interface Question?
- date: December 20, 2012
I'm a linux Newb. Engineering dropped of a prototype pcb that has embedded linux. I have access to terminal commands and need to manually test the USB ports on the board. I run the lsusb command and get the following:
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:7500
I need to read/write a character to each port. How can I manually perform this task using terminal commands. I plan on connecting the usb tx/rx lines so I can loopback the character i am sending. Any suggestions on how to perform this task?
[SOLVED] How to install Rogue Class Linux to USB flash
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 4, 2013
Someone asked how to install Rogue Class Linux on a USB flash drive. This is somewhat technical and I hope to make it easier in the future. In the meanwhile, here are some notes on the subject.
The first step is to detach your hard disks except for the USB flash drive. The installer depends on LILO, which cannot always tell the difference between the USB flash disk and the first SATA disk .
The next step is to install from CD, selecting the USB flash drive as the install target. This is the normal install process described in the user guide.
Once the install process is finished, it is normal to reboot the computer. VirtualBox and computers with old BIOS cannot boot from USB flash drives . To work around this limitation, boot the install CD and immediately hold down the Esc key. This will interrupt syslinux and show a boot: prompt. At this prompt, type:
hugesmp.s rootdelay=10 root=/dev/sda1 rdinit= ro
This will boot the kernel from CD and the system from the USB fla
