I installed Ubuntu 11.04 on a 8G USB key on my rig. This is working great. Looks like there is a limitation to the size of the partition to 4G.  I desinstalled libre office, java and other stuff I don't need on the machine but I have only about 200M of space left on the device. I also created another 3G partition to install the AMD SDK and mining stuff but I'm still running out of space on this 4G partition.

How do you cope with the 4G limitation ? Did you install the regular Ubuntu distribution ?


thanks

The following tutorial utilizes a separate ext casper-rw partition instead of a loop file. The process enables the user to have a partition that is larger than the 4GB fat32 file size limit for saving and restoring changes.

There is no 4GB limit in Ubuntu. Maybe you are using a FAT file system which has a 4GB limit but you don't need to use FAT on a flash stick. I've used ext4 for ages on my boot flash on my router. No problems at all.
