I am currently working to get compiz working on my usb drive. When i select the default compiz option in the boot menu it does not work. There are lines all over the screen. I am currently working with the guys over at the compiz forum to find out what the issue is.

The problem that i am having is with saving the changes that i am making to the xorg.conf file. I have a usb drive with persistent changes but when i add/ change things and save, when i reboot they are gone. the guys at compiz said they have no idea as to why changes do not save after i reboot and suggested i ask that question here.

If anyone can shed some light on what i am doing wrong i would appreciate it.
