Writing to the boot USB if it is formated as NTFS (solution)

Hi, I am having trouble creating a snap file. I recently bought a 64gb flash drive that I wanted to use for my experiments with foxyroxy, I get error Read-only file system. I suspect it has to do with the flash stick, as it is formatted NTFS. any suggestions?

Hi, Atv,
When you boot FoxyRoxy from NTFS drive/partition you have read only access.
Format the partition with ext file system and you will have no problems. You can format it with FAT also if you have enough RAM to use for the creation of save squash file. 2Gb RAM will be enough with sure. If you have less use ext file system.

hi, saintless, I was able to use a work-around by editing syslinux.cfg by adding the toram as follows

label live-bigmem
menu label Live 686-BigMem
kernel /live/vmlinuz3
append initrd=/live/initrd3.img boot=live config persistent max_loop=128 quickreboot noprompt toram autologin username=root password=foxy


Now in NTFS, I can read and write just fine.
regards, Andres

Welldone, Atv :)
I almost forgot the toram boot option. This is perfect solution when you have enough RAM to load FoxyRoxy.
