I tried to make a bootable LiveUSB from the files found on:
When I use the create_live_sdr_fs.sh script, with fat.zip and
casper-rw.tar.bz2 and then the resulting usb stick is not bootable.
When I in stead use the 3.0-smaller.img.bz2 or 3.0.img.bz2 then the
resulting usb stick is bootable and works.
I am not a filesystem expert, but with a binary diff (dhex) is see many
differences in the resulting binary data on the first 10 MB of the disk.
Is suspect that the create_live_sdr_fs.sh script on the ettus website is
not the same (latest) version as the one that was used to create
3.0-smaller.img.bz2 and 3.0.img.bz2
Is the latest version of create_live_sdr_fs.sh also available somewhere ?
I would prefer not to use an image to create the stick, since writing a
solid state usbstick with an image from start to end will leave no room
for the wearleveling algorithm on the drive. This will ruin write
Using a substantially smaller image, leaving a gigabyte or more
unwritten at the end would help a bit. But not writing unused sectors
would be much better.
So I hope that someone knows how to get a working create_live_sdr_fs.sh
Thanks in advance,
