    LinuxICE2 Beta1 is out!

    Beta1 is out! This release fixes many of the bugs found in the alpha and should be a lot more manageable.

    Release announcement:
    http://forums.openice.org/viewtopic....8&p=3621#p3621

    Remember, this is not considered stable or error free. DON'T INSTALL THIS ON A PRODUCTION MACHINE... at least with any expectation that you won't have to tweak something/fix something to get it to work. LinuxICE2 final will be released sometime in September.

    Download it, fire it up on your machine, play around, and report any bugs to http://bugs.openice.org .

    The best resurrected frontend I've ever used, period.

    If you are guys are digging LinuxICE, you guys are gonna love Drivn. Drivn will be based on the OpenICE technologies that we are devving right now.

    How capable is linuxIce off a usb stick? My vision for the future carpc would be all on a usb stick. Bring it inside and modify configuration on another computer then bring it out and have it run off my carpc. This way, its easy to reconfigure, better environment tolerant, and cheap too!

    n2o_2k used this kind of setup at the meet in Baltimore a week or so ago. It's called a live-persistant USB. Ubuntu has a utility that you can use to install a compatible ISO image onto a usb stick. You can use that usb stick and boot LinuxICE on any machine from a usb stick.

    The only downside is that it has to do full hardware detection and driver loading every time you boot. This adds a little bit of time to the boot process.

    Here are a few links on how to do it:

    I have done usb persistence install of ubuntu many times, successfully.
    I can see the same done with linuxice. Is it possible to hack the OS to trigger the full hardware detection only on user command (similar to pressing f8 to go to safemode)?

    I'm not sure what trouble you've run into creating it with LinuxICE. I've specifically added the hooks to the builds to allow it to take place. Also, I know n2o_2k has done it so I know it's possible. Maybe we can get him to share his secrets...

    You might be able to accomplish that by passing the appropriate kernel/installer parameters at boot or even your own if you have a script that can understand it.

    Creating a persistent usb isn't really difficult. You will need 2 partition, one for the live cd data and the other is where your changes will resides. The key thing in creating the second partition is that you need to make sure you label that partition.

    I will try to post the step I took when created mine using the script isotousb.sh and gparted on a 1gb usb stick.
