    So give me three +1s and I'll do it for mac4man and for the the group

    I subscribed both devs who commited to SDC 0.3.0 back in early Dec. to the bug report, they can respond or not, up to them.

    @sudodus -
    So is the current SDC incapable of setting a volume label to disks it creates?
    Able or unable? I think the SDC clones, that is, copies each byte from the iso file to the pendrive. It does not edit anything. It would be possible to do that, but I don't think it does now. Just like the other cloning tools, it 'only' clones. I think this is good, it makes the SDC robust.

    Your welcome.
    Obviously some of the mailing lists have become redundant or seconded to the point where the devs just don't read them any more. Also, some of the launchpad slices have to be brought directly to the developer. It's not like they are deliberately ignoring anyone. It's good to see some action taken on mac4mans bug report. He has helped me a lot over the years.

    regards..

    Re: Startup disc creator

    Just doing a back-step experiment.

    I downloaded ubuntu (unity) current on a ubuntu 10.10 box and installed a persistive drive to 4GB USB and although it took a little time, it completed successfully and I am using that persistive install now.

    And look how it formatted the USB.

    It would seem that if SDC could set a specific volume label, (not a user option), then only those drives would eligible to be formated (from a gtk button that's only active under that circumstance.

    Have you checked if the SDC version of 10.10 works

    - with 32-bit and 64-bit versions of all current Ubuntu versions?

    - in UEFI as well as in BIOS mode? (With a 64-bit version the target should boot also in UEFI mode.)

    It must also work between versions, architectures and boot modes (running in one of them, installing another one).

    I think this mixture (and changes in the internal structure of the iso files between versions) made it hard to keep the old SDC working.

    Yes it would, but then we start introducing complication, and potential causes to failure with future versions of Ubuntu.
