XBMC LiveUSB (formerly "LiveXBMC") V1: an USB disk image
#36
What will be the difference between that and installing Ubuntu with minimum features checked on a 4 gig stick along with XBMC? I tried this 1st before installing linux, but didn't work because of my Geforce card. So i installed ubuntu on my USB 300gig i had extra sitting around, but also messed around and bought and installed ubuntu on my 4 gig USB stick, and also XBMC, and works fine. I only have about 870megs left, and can remove a bunch of unneeded stuff, but i don't know enough yet about ubuntu to know what NOT to remove. Knowing me i would remove the wrong thing and have no GUI left. But for now, 870megs free is plenty for me for my USB Ubuntu install w/xbmc.
Looking forward to the 3-4 level of linux xbmc that would be selt contained and ran as a kernel. That will be perfect and small for USB sticks (I know, it's the direction the team is wanting to head for that purposde.)
But for all the people out there just messing around with ubuntu for the 1st time, give it a try, it's not anything scary, and makes linux SO easy for a newbie. I've tried linux 3-4 times over the past 10 years, and i'm using Ubuntu about 35% of time now, and L-O-V-E it!!!! After playing and using it for a few weeks now a lot, i'm already pretty comfortable using anything i need to do with it. And using most of the 3d desktop stuff, knowing a lot of the shortcuts already even. Very nice OS!!!
