A Ginger Sheep
anyone know what pro gramme i can use to put kubuntu 10.10 beta on a usb stick? nothing i can find is compatible with the betas yet. would burn a cd but ive ran out :(
couldnt get it to work either mate
gets to the logo and goes blank after that
the one of the ubuntu site will do it but you have to pick it yourself from the browse button
Its not really that simple, there isnt a specific program for that purpose out yet. I havnt looked at 10.10 yet, but as a guess have a go with the hp USB format tool and GRUB4DOS, see if you can make a working bootloader.
OK, did you look at the instructions installing to a usb drive on the Ubuntu download page (http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download)? I was able to get this to work for Ubuntu 10.4. It should work for 10.10 (still in beta) and also for kbuntu. You download the universal installer and point it to the iso file you downloaded. It will work even for a newer version of the software, I selected either Ubuntu 9.10 or "Another live Linux".

got the ubuntu iso to boot using daemon tools earlier so doesn't matter anymore but thanks anyway. almost convinced me to use it as it appears to be fully compatible with my wireless adaptor and picks up my bt homehub fine but for some reason will not accept the wireless key and keeps asking for it. annoying as hell as i finally thought i could start to give it a go properly. ah well :(
I've done it.
there's a thread on the ubuntu forums, but basically you have to use the latest version of the USB Creator from within ubuntu. so on any install you have (or live that you can boot) then update the usb creator.
then use it with the 10.10 iso
