Re: Live MX-18 image on USB fails to boot on iMac

I have a pre-2010 iMac that I'm constantly booting to a MX18 live-usb.
I wish I could help you, but I've had no problems.

edit
I see dolphin_oracle has jumped in.

2 questions about live-usb: suspend & hd life

1) If I suspend using a live-usb, will the computer's hard drive also suspend? 2) Also, will exclusively using a live-usb extend the life of an old hard drive? I have MX installed on an old computer, and it works great as is. But I'm so impressed using the live-usb on it, that I'm curious about thes...

Re: Home size on persistent live usb

So much thanks to BitJam for his hard work on my problem. A script he wrote for me created the live-usb-storage that I was missing.
And as Dolphin_Oracle said, it truly is a bonus. Very nice.
Thanks again for the incredible support. :number1:

Re: Home size on persistent live usb

Redacted, please try again. I just booted from live-usb created from a snapshot of mine, (was MX-17 fully updated to MX-18) and it works as described. I'm quite sure I've done something wrong somewhere, because it definitely isn't there. I will redo the whole process tomorrow or Monday. Thanks, fig...

Re: Home size on persistent live usb

Did you make the live-usb with one of our live-usb-maker programs? IIRC, MX starts you out in the ~/Desktop/ directory (which I find confusing). An "ls ~" should show you a Live-usb-storage/ directory in your home directory. I made a snapshot of my installed system with mx snapshot and made the liv...

Re: Home size on persistent live usb

Well I did something wrong. I'm in the live usb now, and there's no Live-USB-Storage folder. Or at least, I can't find it.
