This is frustrating. Just recently, someone explained to a user on the forum how to find the work file from an attempt at making a livecd and use it to create a liveusb after mylivecd bailed out due to the final ISO exceeding the size limit built in to account for the size of the DVD disk.
I can't find that post. I thought it was by just17 but he is so prolific in his posts that even though I looked through all of his recent posts, I can't find it.
Anyway, I was left with the impression that the limit to a remaster of 4BG is entirely in the part of the script that deals with creating the final ISO file and that there is a work around if you want to go to a USB drive.
If that is true, is it possible to remaster an install that has a 50GB home partition using this method?
I nearly lost this install last week due to the inability to create a full remaster due to having multiple VirtualBox installs as well as the 2 GB file that Google Earth creates.
Yes, I know that I can delete that file from Google earth and it will recreate it the first time I run after installing from the remaster.
I was able to restore this machine because I had created a remaster that excluded my normal home partition and used that to reinstall the root partition while keeping the home partition.
Even so, I would really like to have a full remaster that will run from a large flash drive.
I know that I am not the only one here who keeps a number of systems as virtual machines and would like to be able to access them from a liveUSB remaster on another machine that is fast with multi-GB of memory.
