Bonjour a tous.
Suite a un don effectué auprès de la FSF, on m'a adressé une clé usb trisquel, mais impossible de booter dessus, est-ce bien une live usb ?
Si oui, qu'est-ce qui cloche ?
Si non, comment faire une live usb a partir de cette clé là ?

Merci d'avance.
Hi everyone,
After a donation that i made to the FSF, they sent me a trisquel usb key. But it is impossible to boot on it.
Question is: Is this a live USB ?
If not, how can i make one ?
If it is, what's wrong (usb is setted as the 1st device to boot from in the bios).

It is, but maybe there was an error while loading the data on it.
Replicating the exact procedure they follow is a bit complicated, (they
build it on an ext4 filesystem), but you can load it with the same
results using the more simple usb-creator tool included with Trisquel.
While running Trisquel -either installed or with the live CD-, open the
"Startup Disk Creator" ("Créateur de disque de démarrage") tool at
System>Administration, and follow the instructions.

Ok, i'll do that.
(By now i'm on ubuntu 10.10 so already on ext4 ;-) )

Thanks !
