The dd method works well, but going the fat32/syslinux way has advantages. You end up with a simple, single storage volume where you can stash additional files and carry with you. There is less danger of borking your system.

If you dig a little deeper into syslinux, you can put several distros on one thumb drive and create a startup menu with several options, and still have space left over for other data.

I'm kinda liking rc3 for vlocity 7.1

but I installed other programs and they work just fine!

still fiddling with guake to get it going

but mail works and I like the animation, I've wanted an animated bootscreen for like everrr... and I'm gonna edittheheck out of it when I'm good enough to find it:)

Quoting yourself: "Speak English or die!" Cheesy

Hey, welcome back. I answered most of your concerns in the bug tracker.
That'd be: "quoting yourself, quoting Bruce Dickinson"
And yes: The default US-map is insufficient for covering the whole of English as well as the other European tongues... ;-)

-Localisation is CRAP! Still stuck with the retarded default US-keymap. Not even the [intl], let alone the ones with deadkeys(with or without the choice for the Alt-Gr option...)

Or you could simply jump to the directory where you DL-ed the iso to and then issue (on the prompt):
Code:
dd if=<your iso> of=<mountpoint of your USB-drive>
Can't get simpler/easier than this.
Works always.

Note: the usb-drive will be wiped completely before writing the install-bootdisk to it, so back up any stuff on it you want to keep first.
AND MAKE SURE YOU USE THE PROPER MOUNTPOINT FOR THE USB-DRIVE!
Some people actually wiped a harddrive, doing this due to using the wrong mountpoint(address).

OK, I admit that I've been out of the loop for a while, but here's my take on the RC3.1 of vl7.1 64-bit:

IT IS NOT GOOD!

-First off: ANIMATION during startup?!?... A system should be RELIABLE, not the show-off-case of childish games.
 I assume showing a nice graph is ok, but wasting resources on something as useless as an animation is NOT looking professional.

-The install-interface looks nice&clean, but I got no option to create a user; had to do that post-install.
 And the "advanced" option didn't offer any advanced options; I take it, this Work In Progress.

So far: nothing really serious.Annoying but no biggie.

However:
-Localisation is CRAP! Still stuck with the retarded default US-keymap. Not even the [intl], let alone the ones with deadkeys(with or without the choice for the Alt-Gr option...)

-Permissions of some of the programs, installed through GSLAPT are not set right; Chrome had to be adjusted manually and the installed binary was not in the path.
 gparted is missing dependencies.

-The default vesa-driver doesn't work well with my Geforce 8400GS(Screen blacks out for some seconds at irregular interfalls...) and that brings me to:

-THE TUI DOESN'T WORK!!!
Starting up in TUI won't let me in; It refuses to accept ANY login, be it root-account or regular user.
Issuing <init 2> or <init 3> gives me the (nice, admitted) Vlocity-graph, but no prompt whatsoever
And what happened to good 'ole "killx"?...
Did I mention, the NVIDIA-driver doesn't install when in an X-environment?...

- The system is actually slower than my 7.0 32 bit install....
 Trust me: The AMD AThlon quad-core really is a 64-bit processor...

This after a mere 2 hours of joshing around with it.
This is NOT a release-candidate.
Calling it "beta" would be a stretch...

Based on the brevity of the question and the (unintentional?) poll, I believe you're a first time user?

if so:

1 partition only.  ext4 filesystem.  use default mount options, if asked.


If you're looking deeper please give us more information to work with.

I'm flattered and interested.

I'm writing a more comprehensive document.  I just ask a bit of time because I don't have much to spare Sad

Watch the the doc above.  I'm adding a changelog to document tweaks.  When It's acceptable as a reference I'll post the whole thread into the "How To" section.

You are most welcome to use any or all of it as you see fit.  I'm glad to contribute.

Give me a bit of time to finish the tutorial to an acceptable standard and I'll push you rst and latex versions.

Nice.  I'd like to see this officially documented.  If you'd be kind enough to write it in rst syntax, we could include it in the vlcore documentation.
