  • MEMORY: 12Gb

I have used Unetbootin to make a Linux Lite USB
and designated 4GB for persistence.
However, when I make changes after booting
the live USB, it doesn't save the changes even
though I check the box on exit to do so.

Should I be using another live USB maker or
am I skipping some step ?

The Release Announcement contains the correct information for what you should use.

Sorry, I must be overlooking something; I read the 4.2 release announcement, but
I didn't see anything about creating an iso file from your installed system.
Is the information in an earlier release announcement ?

It looks like your confusing your other thread with this one. In this thread, you're not asking to create an ISO file in your first post.

Sorry, confused is not the half of it. :)
I guess at 73, I must be getting old-timers syndrome or something. :)

I somehow was looking at my other post and responded to this one.
I guess the main thing I was wanting to know is what I'm doing wrong
about making a live USB that has persistence.
Should I be using another tool besides Unetbootin ?

The reason I said it was in the 4.2 release announcement is to encourage people to look at information that is already provided.
In this case to get to the point, Unetbootin does not do persistence for Linux Lite. What software does? I am not sure. Someone else may know. For simply making a non-persistent USB of LL, we recommend Etcher, and nothing else.

@arky217 and @Jerry ,


This does not answer the persistent question either, but in terms of making a Live USB without having to install Etcher, on Linux Lite you can use the program called Disks.  You just "Restore" the ISO image file to your USB, and that makes it bootable.

It will need someone to test on LL 4 Series -

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/mkusb

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/mkusb/persistent

Running Linux Lite 4.2 and I can confirm that mkusb
does indeed work to create a persistent live usb.

I installed mkusb and it worked just fine
and the usb is persistent.

Thank You @arky217  for installing and testing mkusb on Linux Lite 4.2  :)
