I have noticed that when I do NOT have persistence installed on a bootable USB drive (or
when I have a bootable CD), the path to the boot media is available as /mnt/live.
However, when I include persistence on a bootable USB, there is no path to the boot media,
and the path /mnt/live exists but is empty. (The USB was created using
livecd-iso-to-disk from a Live CD that was created with livecd-creator.)
As I am counting on pulling several files in from the boot media (but outside the squashfs
file system) into my local file system on bootup, it is important that there be
consistency in where I might find these files, whether or not persistence is installed on
the boot media.
Can the /mnt/live path be enabled on a bootable USB with persistence installed?
Also, another possibility might be to include the external files I need in the actual
persistence overlay. Can I move files into this area? If so I will not need to do
surgery on the squashfs file system.
Thanks much for any help that can be offered.
