Subject: live-boot: fail to boot with persistent option and fat32 live-rw
Date: Sat, 12 Feb 2011 00:04:36 +0100
Package: live-boot
Severity: normal


I copied the debian usb-hdd image
debian-live-6.0.0-i386-kde-desktop.img to a flash pendrive with dd,
and then added another partition to the pendrive labelled live-rw.

If I format the new partition with fat32 the boot with option
'persistent' fail with this error:
mount aufs on /root failed with option noatime,noxino,dirs=/cow=rw://filesystem.squashfs=rr 

and the file /live.log reports:
mount: mounting aufs on /root failed: Numerical argument out of domain

The same partition scheme works fine with ext3.
Regards

Marco

fat32 is not a unix like filesystem and is thus not suitable for
persistency.
