    Install to flash drive.


    Okay so I am trying to install linux on a flash drive. I need to be able to install more packages after and make changes that stick.

    I have tried installing the normal way and just selecting the flash drive instead of hard drive. grub-install failed when I did that.

    Everything I could find online said to do a live usb with persistant storage. I did this with fedora and liveusb-creator. I set it to ~7GB of persistant storage, but then I could not even do yum update once without it running out of storage.

    Any ideas? I am not set on fedora, really any distro is okay.

    Okay so I followed that guide to install lubuntu to the flash drive. (it only allowed 4gb of persistant storage which suck but is okay).

    Every time I boot, I am greeted with the screen asking if I want to: try lubuntu, install lubuntu, check disk,...

    I uninstalled ubitquity but I still get the screen. How can I get rid of it?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Edit the grub configuration file(s) to remove the unwanted boot options.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
