FusionInventory USB stick
#1
Hello.


We've worked on an interface with configuration dialogs to run the agent on a live-usb.

To run the interface, you need to install the live-usb and then to boot from it. The boot will ask you to select a keyboard and answer other questions to configure the agent. Then, you will have the choice between running a shell and rebooting the computer.

To use this live-usb, first, unzip the image on http://debian.fusioninventory.org/mirror/val/
After for a linux, run the command `cat fusioninventory-live-usb.img > /dev/sdX` where /dev/sdX is the name of your usb key.
And, for windows, you have to use a software like Image Writer to install it on your key drive.



Regards,
Valentin.

Hello, currently, the USB drive does not allow to save files. ocs on itself. But we are looking at how to solve this problem as soon as possible.

Valentin,
Ok thank you

i have this problem because the kernel don't see my 7 ethernet ports on my Dell R710..... lol (maybe too many ....) and can't connect to ocs server directly

An alternative for the ocs file is :
Have another usb key
load the modules supporting the usb key such

modprobe vfat
modprobe usb-storage

et mount the new uSB stick in RW

after that we can write the ocs file directly on it

Hello,

I improved the image of the live-usb. Now, it allows persistence of data after a restart.

To do this persistence, once the USB key is created, create a new ext2 partition with a tool like "Gparted".
The volume must have the name "live-rw" for a size of about 400 Mo.
