Somewhat perplexed by current fad to run entire os/distro off usb. Security : imagine walking into an Internet-café, rebooting a computer with your USB-stick and from there you're able to run whatever programs you like without anyone using any keyloggers, trojans, or even any network-surveilance-pr...

Re: USB-stick keeps stalling my whole system!

Since I've definitely found out what the problem was, I thought I'll better write about it here in order to "close" this "issue" for good. First of all, even if USB-sticks are capable of storing several megabytes per second, this is NOT a number one should have in mind when looking at IRL-performanc...

Re: USB-stick keeps stalling my whole system!

But holy mother of god! I DO NOT WANT EXFAT! In Porteus I want Ext4 , nothing else! Again, for those who are way to lazy to actually read what I wrote above: - I only formatted the stick with exFAT in order to be able to test the stick with the h2test-util, under windows ! And since that test went t...

Re: USB-stick keeps stalling my whole system!

My god, we are really loosing focus here aren't we? I do NOT want exFAT on my usb-stick! :bad: What on earth did you get that from? I only formatted it with it to be able to use the h2test-tool under WINDOWS. Anyway, trying to low-level-format the stick under windows took ages (after about an hour t...

Re: USB-stick keeps stalling my whole system!

Result from h2testw: Test finished without errors. You can now delete the test files *.h2w or verify them again. Writing speed: 20.8 MByte/s Reading speed: 30.5 MByte/s H2testw v1.4 Unfortunately I formatted the stick with exFAT to get Windows to communicate with it in an meaningful way. That was mo...

Re: USB-stick keeps stalling my whole system!

Update: disabling the lazy-Ext4-feature didn't help at all. It might just be me, but " changes-ro " makes the system stall a bit less , but it doesn't eliminate the problem. Copy2ram doesn't do much more than make the startup-sequence a lot slower, thereafter I'm neither experiencing less "stalls" n...

Re: USB-stick keeps stalling my whole system!

Alrighty, I might have a solution for this... (remains to be seen, but I'm hopeful) First of all, changes-ro makes the system load with lightspeed, but it does NOT make the stalls go away. I'm right now experiencing stalls while the changes-ro -switch is active. But while googling for "linux usb pro...

USB-stick keeps stalling my whole system!

Hi boys, girls and others, imagine this: I have a new 64GB USB-stick with Porteus installed on it. But when I use it, Porteus more or less randomly just stalls while the read/write-LED on the stick is flashing - for somewhat 30-60 seconds. I've tried different filesystems, different desktops (KDE/LX...
