I want to test wine with a current Ubuntu live image.
I managed to install
ubuntu-11.10-desktop-i386.iso on a USB stick. The resulting USB stick boots alright.
Unfortunately, the live image does not include wine.
I noticed that the root file system is an overlay one - the overlay is stored in RAM.
The problem is that the test system does not have that much RAM - i.e. modifying
apt-get install wine works on the live system - but a few packages eat all the available RAM and the system halts.
Plus - I also need some space for installing the windows application (to test it).
Is it possible to use a spare partition on the USB stick for the root-overlay?
Then I would have enough space for the wine packages and the windows application - or am I missing something?
