    Default autosave changes usb

    hi!

    i am a newbie in bt. i have downloaded the bt3usb.iso and i have installed it on a 4 GB usb key like it is desribed in the bt3usb-podcast @ blip.tv

    i have 4 partitions on my usb pen:
    sda1....1.5GB....bt3
    sda2....1GB.......swap partition
    sda3....1GB.......partition for changes
    sda4....0.5GB....partition for data

    bt3 is booting normally with this changes in syslinux.cfg but changes in bt3 will not saved automatically:
    Code:
    LABEL pchanges
    MENU LABEL BT3 Graphics mode with Persistent Changes
    KERNEL /boot/vmlinuz
    APPEND vga=0x317 initrd=/boot/initrd.gz ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw changes=/dev/sdb3 autoexec=xconf;kdm
    bt3 halts on booting with this changes in syslinux.cfg
    Code:
    LABEL pchanges
    MENU LABEL BT3 Graphics mode with Persistent Changes
    KERNEL /boot/vmlinuz
    APPEND vga=0x317 initrd=/boot/initrd.gz ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw changes=/dev/sda3 autoexec=xconf;kdm
    i get the following error message:
    Code:
    setting up directory for changes
    /dev/sda3
    testing the filesystem for posix compatibility
    setup union directory (using aufs, with udba=none)
    mount: mounting aufs on union failed
    Fatal error occured - canīt setup union (aufs)
    Something went wrong an we canīt continue. This should never happen.
    Please reboot your computer with Ctrl+Alt+Delete...
    i am trying to boot bt3 on a machine which normally runs with openSUSE11.0.
    when i start qtparted on open suse, it shows me 3 system partitions sda1, sda2, sda3 from suse and the 4 partitions from the usb key sdb1, sdb2, sdb3, sdb4. due tue i have changed the syslinux.cfg to the first example.

    i am very sorry about my bad english and i hope that you can understood my problem!

    many thanks for your adivse.

    best regards,
