Bug Status: Unconfirmed


I created a Sugar-on-a-Stick SoaS today on a 4Gb Optima Attache stick, with 3.2Gb persistent storage.

Sugar, however, reports that I have only around 400Mb free in the Journal. Please help.

Log files are attached.

  • Keywords overlay added

Correction: Log files will be added later. I cannot navigate to the log files from within the Sugar browser, which is perhaps a subject for another ticket.

I can't find the log files on the stick to upload. Please let me know what files are needed.

Also, the wiki page for submitting bugs should be updated to add instructions regarding attaching logs.

  • Distribution/OS changed from SoaS to Unspecified

Bulk change distribution=SoaS -> component=SoaS

if you used a fat16 USB (normal stock format for USB) This MAY be the cause:
liveusb creator only allows up to 2GB max overlay size
Try formatting of USB stick first:

fat32, labeled FEDORA, with boot flag set.

then run liveusb-creator again.
