Hi there, im a complete noob at ubuntu and just wanted to try the live usb version as it boots up faster than my windows 7 (Y) and is much faster to use aswell. (I have a slow laptop).

I've tried googling this but can't find a suitable answer anywhere.

I used a live USB flash that i made using the standard ubuntu 10.10 iso. Everything booted up fine. When i tried loading firefox and installing the flash using the adobe website and the .deb for ubuntu option, as soon as i clicked on download now..it crashed/froze.

Samething everytime i try to install flash.

Is this because im not supposed to be installing anything on the live version ? Or would this carry on if i actually installed it on my HDD (something which i dont really wanna do yet)

Go easy on me :P

Thanks !

I have installed Flash to Ubuntu running as both persistent and Full install to flash drive.
How much "extra space" have you allowed on the flash drive for the casper-rw file?
