    Re: MultiBootUSB - Install and boot multiple Linux from Pendrive / Flash drive / USB

    Thank you for your positive feedback.

    it successfully added boot entries for all of the above iso's, except Peppermint & Lubuntu.
    Yes it wont boot pepper mint and lubuntu because this support is not added in the script. you can find the list of supported distros in the first post of this thread.

    I manually added Peppermint to the iso folder and added an entry to the /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
    if you boot these distros (pepper mint and lubuntu) successfully please share us so that i will include these two distros in the script. you can share us the grub.cfg entry of these two distros.

    I'm in the process of attempting to boot each of the iso's and so far Wolvix and Backtrack have booted OK
    I haven't tried yet for those distros. I would like to know the grub.cfg entry for these two(if you wish).

    I noticed that for several of the live cd iso's, the contents were extracted
    Because these distros does not provide direst iso boot yet.

    Thank you.

    I was able to boot Knoppix using the first menuentry and had no problems booting lubuntu and Peppermint, which are both Ubuntu based. I used Herman's example on his site:
    http://members.iinet.net/~herman546/...ack_Boot_Entry

    I'll try to update this post with results on booting the other distro iso's. I'm quite impressed with the results so far.

    Re: MultiBootUSB - Install and boot multiple Linux from Pendrive / Flash drive / USB

    Gparted works well from iso with grub2.
    You can probably make the following menuentry look a bit more elegant:

    Code:
    menuentry "Gparted live" {
      insmod loopback
      insmod iso9660
      set gfxpayload=800x600x16, 800x600
      set isofile="/boot/ISOs/gparted-live-0.5.2-1.iso"
      loopback loop $isofile
      linux (loop)/live/vmlinuz boot=live union=aufs noswap noprompt ip=frommedia toram=filesystem.squashfs findiso=$isofile
      initrd (loop)/live/initrd.img
    }

    Oops...

    Forgot to mention about the bug fix (nimblex) on beta 2 release.

    Thank you C.S.Cameron for your feedback and suggestion ( on GParted).
    Thank you confused57 for your suggestion on pepperment and lubuntu

    We are ready to release the new version with few more additional distros and some bug fixes

    I get this error in Kubuntu 10.04

    # ./MultiBootUSB.sh
    USB Disk [./MultiBootUSB.sh:] is not available


    However, my USB disk is available. It is called "PATRIOT" and here it is:

    ls /media/PATRIOT/
    autorun.inf casper ldlinux.sys md5sum.txt mint4win.exe preseed syslinux

    (Those files are all OK to delete, so I just plan on overwriting this disk.)

    Why won't the script run?

    Are you giving the full path to ./MultiBootUSB.sh

    No. Why would I need to do more than this:
    sudo -s
    cd ~/Downloads/MultiBootUSB
    ~/Downloads/MultiBootUSB# ./MultiBootUSB.sh

    sudo -s
    cd ~/Downloads/MultiBootUSB
    ~/Downloads/MultiBootUSB# ./MultiBootUSB.sh
    Just askin'
    Because I am installing from a laptop with grub legacy I am booting from the Live CD.
    My MultiBootUSB.sh is on a flash drive so I give the path and it works.
    I start with a freshly formatted FAT32 flash drive
