sugar on flash drive or stick (soas)

Asked by captain_sensible

I have been asked by an American friend out in Ghana, who is vigorously doing what he can to introduce the sugar operating system, to help with sugar on a stick .

 I have previously installed sugar on the Simply Mepis (Debian based linux), but have been asked to support the OS on a stick idea.

Putting it succinctly the Unetbootin system of putting an OS onto a flash stick is a breeze; whereas
anything to do with sugar tends to be a grievous experience. What i was hoping was to be able to select from the drop down install list "sugar" and away i go. Unfortunately you don't have sugar on the UNetbootin list.

I would like to help with the initiative in Ghana, is there anything you can do to get sugar included on your
install distribution list ? I know you can just go to the sugar labs site , but i am avoiding it at the moment unless i have to, for sanity reasons.

Obviously some of the software is generic; what would I have to get from the sugar people to use your system(the iso ?) , and
then what other elements?

. On my stick having Ubuntu i can see wubi.exe, an isolinux folder & so on. In other words if i was Gordon Ramsey , would I be able to manually put together all ingredients for a recipe that would boot sugar from a previously fat32 formated stick ?

don't worry solved it . Once i realised that the "Fedora installer" was in fact the sugar on a stick installer and wasn't going to install fedora over my lovely Simply Mepis (Debian) system.

I just ran the installer from windows, with the soas-2-blueberry.iso file on the desktop (once i realised this was not intended for some sort of flashy phone !) chose the iso from the menu, and my flash stick as target .

I've told sugar labs to look at unetbotin page , as i think they could cut out a lot of "flannel" on their site !
