That's exactly what it was. And he's been given so much hand holding with this, its not even funny. For more than a year now, seriously; and four years, if you go to other forums and see the same stuff there.
He's known about different utilities and other methods of getting things to work, and has been fed how to guides dozens of times, but he doesn't listen. And he conveniently forgot to mention that he's
using a USB 2.0 stick, that's only 8GB in size. And putting swap on it. And FULLY EXPECTS it to work with zero lag.
I get it, but before others waste their time with the OP, I think its important they have the whole story. I cannot figure out how to run a full 'desktop' OS (like Mint, or whatever..Ubuntu, Fedora, etc. doesn't matter) from a USB 2.0 stick (with /home /swap and EVERYTHING on it), with ZERO LAG. And I also can't figure out how to do it on an OLD USB 2.0 stick, that probably has a load of dead cells. If someone else can believe me, I'd love to know because I truly don't, and would love to learn. And add to that the fact they've been at this (that is, running Mint from USB) for 5 YEARS now, and I can't help but feel the OPs posts are an exercise in futility.
I can believe a 3.0 stick would work far better, but still, your limitation is the USB bus.

I have been trying to install a recent distro, with a minimum X such as jwm, but unfortunately my cdrom is broken and I can only boot the USB port, with a pendrive.
AMD K6 3D is today too old for being for linux.
Is there an image of slackware than runs that processor and that can... (5 Replies)
Can anybody help me with how I can connect a usb pendrive or external disk to a Sun Server which runs on Solaris 9? I am able to connect the usb drive to a windows server easily and copy files but am wondering if it is possible to do that with Solaris.
Any help will be appreciated. thanks. (3 Replies)
