Should the live image simply be copied to /LiveOS? I've never done this before, so I don't know what correct looks like. [[User:Rmyers7|Rmyers7]]

Self installation failure

I recently purchase a Sandisk SD card to try to do the Fedora 10 installation on my XO. I could not follow the installation instructions as I have an older SD card reader that will not recognize the 4Gb SDHC card.

So, I tried to do a self installation procedure on the XO. I copied the F10 live image to a USB stick, and inserted it and the SD card in thee XO. I downloaded the live iso script and attempted to run it. This failed with lots of 'no such file or directory' errors. The 'already set up' error is because this log was a second attempt, so that I could capture the log. Log follows:

bash-3.2# bash livecd-iso-to-disk.sh --xo --overlay-size-mb 320 --swap-size-mb 256 /media/PNY4/Fedora-10-Snap3-i686-Live/F10-Snap3-i686-Live.iso /dev/mmcblk0p1

Any work arounds, or do I have to go out and get a SDHC reader? Rmyers7 17:29, 5 November 2008 (UTC) rmyers7 at mindspring dot com

a little follow-up

The following is now on the SD card:

  • the volume name I set with mkfs.msdos
  • /.olpc.store directory and contents (not relevant to this, but shows card is ok)
  • empty /LiveOS directory
  • /syslinux directory with ldlinux.sys in it

Should the live image simply be copied to /LiveOS? I've never done this before, so I don't know what correct looks like. Rmyers7
