If you're trying to make a live-USB, similar to a live-CD, the system will always boot into read-only. There are ways around that using a second partition for persistence. If that's what you want, you should take a look at the debian-live documentation. You could build your own live system using live-build, and create either an iso image or a usb-hdd image.
http://live.debian.net/

Another option is to use Refracta Snapshot. You could install the deb files in your virtualbox installation and create a bootable iso that's a copy of your system, with all your customizations and settings. And you could use refracta2usb to put that iso onto a bootable usb thumb drive. You'll probably need to install some dependencies, like squashfs-tools, live-boot, live-config, live-config-sysvinit, and live-boot-initramfs-tools. See comments in the config file (/etc/refractasnapshot.conf) for using a custom iso directory. (You probably want the boot menu to say "Debian" instead of "Refracta".)

If you don't want a live-media system, you could just install debian to the usb stick the way you'd install to a hard drive. Then it will boot read/write. Since the system isn't compressed into a squashfs, it'll take up more space on the stick.

That's a 5 year old post.

I'm not sure why you posted it here?

Obviously, Saintless and Fred have come up with several different (much better??) ways than the ways suggested in that 5 year old post than using a persistence partition or Refracta (whatever that is).

Who are you replying to and what are you trying to say??????

also, delete (square brackets deleted by me) from your message

Code:

It is messing up the spacing.

Some post just anything hereabouts in Puppy Projects ... and leave it for John Murga to decide whether it should be pulled or not (personally I suspect he has far better things to be doing). Some of us find non "Puppy Projects" posts to be annoying - most boards disallow such off topic posts, but as that's widely abused here might as well jump in and .... this might be of interest to some ...

Oh, so you are intentionally being a jerk. Got it. Carry on.

Can you at least delete the link to the image file that is messing up the margins?

Hi All, some news and updates:

- New kernel package version available from Debian repo: 4.9.88-1+deb9u1 (linux-image-4.9.0-6), upgrading can be done on a frugal install by running "upgrade-kernel"
The mklive-stretch script doesn't need to be updated for that because the kernel version number is still 4.9.0-6.

- New peasywifi package (v4.6-1), rcrsn51 changed the button "Connect" (at the dialog that appears after "Scan") to "OTC".
This means "One time connect" (wpa2 only) to be able to connect without having to make a Profile first.
(it will probably avoid some confusion there was earlier)

- New package I made for display of detailed system information: "inxi-gui", taken from antiX, original by Misko_2083, modified a little for StretchDog, Stretch-live. (see screenshot)
Install inxi-gui with synapic or apt-get (first update the packages lists; apt-get update)
After install, run from Menu > System > System Info (inxi-gui).
The "inxi" commandline script is included in /usr/local/bin, which is a perl script, so the package has perl as dependency.

EDIT: Also updated in repos the "hplip-print-scan" packages (32 and 64 bit) to version 3.18.3, thanks again rcrsn51 !

Fred
