resizing usb boot stick's /home

Asked by mue.de on 2011-08-27

(1) Under Natty Narwhal i build up an usb-boot-Stick by the startup-disk-creator: i've choosen a /home-Partition size of 2GB, which is not enough for the first updates (wanted to try some backport-packages).
Is there an easy way to resize the /home Partition? The root-partition has some GBs left.
(2) After booting the stick, is there a way to make changes to the system persistant (like knoppix did)
(3) The first notify after the rekonq-start is, that one should load the 'flash'-plugin which fails all the time (i think i have to add an nonfree-repo to the sources list?)

updates aren't stored in your /home directory. data that you save are stored there. so it doesn't matter how big your /home directory is. updates aren't saving because you didn't set persistent when you installed on your usb.

i think it's casper that enables persistence. you might try running that to see if it works.

What do you call "/home-Partition" ? At USB stick creation, you define a persistent area, without specifying folder.

Can you help with this problem?
