I have an old laptop with a broken hard drive controller and am running the previous ubuntu from a usb. I installed this as per standard instructions by running some program that copied the live cd to the usb.
This has had a few problems, it seems like it was just made for trying and not for everyday use. Ideally I would like to do a proper install to the usb disk instead of just running off the installer disk. Is there a way to do this?
The main problems I have are:
- When adding mounts to fstab it gets overwritten on each reboot
- When installing updates the kernel cannot be updated
