    [solved] Knoppix Image in ext4 dual partitioned Flash Drive

    Partitioned a new Flash-drive into two ext4 partitions. Kept some extra space of 2 MB, as directed by grub2 manual and from grub-help forum, between the MBR and the first partition. Copied the boot and the KNOPPIX folder from Knoppix image.

    From a running Debian system I installed grub and tools and wrote the MBR with the code
    Code:
    Code:
    # grub-install --root-directory=/media/sdcX /dev/sdc
    (replace x with appropriate values)

    This could also have been accomplished by installing grub2 for PC in Knoppix.

    Used Knoppix's syslinux folder and grub.cfg file to Boot the Knoppix image .

    With knoppix-data.inf file in the KNOPPIX directory to use the ext4 2nd partition as persistent drive.

    Installed nvidia driver and I am now using the system from the pen-drive. Cool and smooth!

    Thanks for the support. I will use the recombine script some time in future to see the effect of a customised system.

    Since raiserFS is not fully supported in Linux may be the script flash-knoppix2 could be changed to install Knoppix in ext4 partition in pen drive, complete with a persistent ext4 partition?

    This is an excellent option, I figured of late!

    stage1 of Knoppix v8.2 has a problem ...

    I have used the direction in this thread for Knoppix v8.2, but ran into some problems. There seems to be an issue with the ISO. I used the terminal, with a two-partitioned PenDrive, at the command prompt as follows:
    Code:
    sudo grub-install --root-directory=/media/sdb1 /dev/sdb
    Output:
    The file /media/sdb1/boot/grub/stage1 not read correctly.
    The file stage1 appears to have some problems. Is installation stalling because of this problem?
    I am attaching the binary coding of stage1 file:
    Code:
