Portable linux on USB HD
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 1, 2013
Hi again, iam still struggling! I gave up the USB flash idea and yesterday bought USB HD 500 GB Seagate.
Idea: Portable linux version on the usb hd so i can use it everywhere on every computer regardles of computers hardware. So i probably need a linux wich can update drivers while it boots or something like that.
So far i tried Ubuntu 12.10, 12.04 LST wich failed, i get to login screen, after i login i just get purple screen. On another computer i just get black screen.
Is ubuntu good choice for usb hd? or should i chose some other version? Something faster?
Seems everything fails that i try to do. I followed a guide from malware hunters net the howto pdf and still it all fails.
/EDIT: I found a solution!!! At login screen when i chose my login password there is an icon i clicked and there i chosed UBUNTU 2D. Now it boots into ubuntu.
But the other questions still remain, is ubuntu a good choice as a portable linux version? Ubuntu feels kind of sluggish the 12.10 version. And
8.04 LTS Black screen after Linux boot process; Xen errors
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 24, 2008
Just upgraded to from 7.10 to 8.04 using the GUI package updater, and I'm having trouble booting the system. Basically, it's a black screen after the Linux boot process.
I had installed the Xen kernel and switched to it in 7.10, but I switched back, and besides the 8.04 installer over-wrote my GRUB config to default to the Xen 3.2 kernel bundled with 8.04. So I'm using the stock 8.04 kernel (Xen 3.2 / Ubuntu 8.08, kernel 2.6.24-16-xen).
Going back to Xen 3.1 / Ubuntu 8.04, kernel 2.6.24-16-xen doesn't make any difference - the machine doesn't boot. Switching to the non-Xen kernel (Ubuntu 8.04, kernel 2.6.24-16-generic) makes the system refuse to boot (it doesn't get any further than GRUB).
The rescue mode kernels don't boot either.
When the machine boots with the Xen kernel, it gets all the way through the POST, then the GRUB loading screen (all normal), but after the Linux start-up sequence the screen goes black and the machine doesn't seem to be doing anything - I never g
Breeding linux boot entries in Grub 2 [Ubuntu 9.10]
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 9, 2010
Recently I installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my system (beside Windows 7) to provide a better environment to enhance my programming skills. I am a relative novice at unix/linux.
At the time of install, there was one boot entry for Ubuntu Linux and one for memtest. These 2 (in order AB) have now multiplied 4 and then 6 (in order ABABAB). I believe this duplication occurs after automatics software updates.

Clone Linux Bootable USB Flash Drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 16, 2008
I have just created a SLES 10 SP2 bootable USB flash drive. However, I still need to clone it to another flash drive of the same size. I have tried using both:
dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb bs=32768 count=262144
dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb bs=32768
Although the clone does seem to have at least some of the original files, I am unable to ascertain if everything is being copied. The clone definitely does not function as a bootable live linux device. It only makes it half way through the boot process before giving the following error:
Attached scsi generic sg0 type0 not found -- exiting to /bin/sh
How do I make other USB flash drives bootable using the exact same image of the first? Thank you in advance.
Linux boot up process Vs. Windows boot up process
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 2, 2002
I bought a "SONY VAIO digital studio computer". This computer starts boot up with some loud sound(somewhat like loud fan sound)and stops as soon as Windows XP finish boot up or completely shut down the computer.
The problem occured when I installed Hancom and Slackware linux on my computer. Both linux run fine; however, the loud system sound does not stops when linux finish boots up. The sound keep going on until I shutdown the computer or boot up to windows. From my opinion Linux don't know how to shut this sound down. (The sound is really annoying)
I have 2 drives(C and D). I have 40Gb on D drive and 20 on C drive. I gave 10Gb to each linux on D drive. (There was noting on D drive before I install linux).
If anyone know a solution, please e-mail me. Thank you.
