I'm trying to set up an 8GB USB drive a persistent live boot.
The tutorial I am using told me to use
fdisk and create two partitions. The first partition is supposed to be just large enough to hold the ISO image I'm using, which in this case is 2.9GB.
fdisk I can make a partition, but no matter how large I make it (even filling the entire drive with the one partition),
nautilus says I only have 2.6GB of free space, which is not enough for the ISO.
I think the first time I tried this earlier today, I used
fdisk and made the partition too small (2.5GB). I have formatted the USB drive multiple times since (and restarted my computer), but I cannot get the drive size to change.
