Which ways have you tried?
The way that works for you is the "correct" way
i tried the 3d entry..
i was a bit skeptical about the other ones because of difference i versions and such..
sorry for the strange naming of option 5... i did not try it jet.. i named it this way because the tilte says "for Non-Techies"
lol when i look back at that post now it seams stupid
anyway i will give number 5 a try and thx for the quick response
Crash and burn on that one at the step to chown the persistence partition. I'm also still not sure if the file needs to be persistence.conf or live-persistence.conf. I might come back to that, but on to the last link for now.
sudo /sbin/install-mbr /dev/sdX

Yup that all seems good! I'm going to run through it again one more time to triple-check, but it seems solid.
I look forward to some feedback on this (especially from a wheezy user).
Great work! If it seems good, then it should be a Sticky HowTo!
Thanks! As usual with everything Debian Live, it was a PITA to figure out. Let's wait for some feedback.
Just an aside, to echo something to a root-owned file, there's this alternative to changing to root with su:
echo / union | sudo tee persistence.conf
(That space between / and union should be there, right?)
/ space union, yes. Nice tip!

Same on two machines.
When I plugin the usb on a running system it gets mounted as
/media/Debian wheezy-DI-b1 i386 1
so it looks as if the parent Wheezy system has interfered somewhere. The stuff inside mostly looks like Jessie though.
Also, I wondered if you might have omitted a couple of 'umount' commands, after mounting and doing stuff with the partitions? Especially, before
mount /dev/sdX2 /mnt
shouldn't there be a
Even saying that - I did it twice, the second time with the umounts and it made no difference.
I'll try it one more time on a Jessie box.
@johnraff, I was afraid that it wouldn't work on wheezy. You did have the boot flag set on your first USB partition?
The unmount command was left out intentionally. When I tried unmounting at that point, I got a "drive currently in use, more info may be found in..." message (sorry, I didn't copy it, I will when I do more testing). I tried pulling the drive and reinserting it at that point, the drive was then identified as /dev/sdc on my system. Weirdness.
I added your tweak to the tutorial.
Gah! The drive was busy because I hadn't cd'd out of it. Post updated.

Great that you got it working! Too bad it took 4 tries, but better late than never.
I consider four times a smal issue compared to my big issue (different thread)
Hopfully someone else can make it in the first go instead with the help of my tries.
