Well, I am downloading nightly builds but now that I think about
If I merely use dd to 'burn' the iso image to USB key, I don't expect
I could save the games played on the USB key.
Or could I?
I guess I might want to use a 8 Gb key, with 4 Gb for the image
itself, and the rest for the /home partition.
Not sure how, if, this is easily doable.
Note that various editions of the game spin are over 4 GB (but under 4 GiB).
and hence may not work on a 4 GB USB stick. (I think the currently nightly
will just barely fit.)
You can use livecd-iso-to-disk to do this using overlays. There are some
limitations of doing things this way, but it works. Also if you have 8GB
to work with, you can throw on a few more favorite games. (There are a
number of games with really big data sets in Fedora and only a few of those
fit on the games spin.)
