As mentioned in my blog (you are reading Fedora Planet and thus my blog,
Of course I am *cough* now
the current version of livecd-iso-to-disk is defaulting to
doing an overlay reset on every boot. This is to help reduce the
likelihood of problems due to running out of space on the overlay since
we now keep /home on the nand and settings have pretty much entirely
moved to the homedir.
That said, I'll probably switch the default back so that we don't reset
the overlay on every boot for manual livecd-iso-to-disk runs, but I'm at
the same time leaning towards having the shipped SD cards with Fedora
preloaded set up as such.
Seems an interesting trade off. If I want to install another program, I
have to jump through a view more hoops. Which is easier to debug... out
of space or overlay resetting?
