Linux support

As always I'm adding a big number of new Linux distributions to the support list. The current compatibility list (2.7.3) contains 233 Linux distributions in 11 categories and 122 are persistence-enabled.

This is a list of new ones :

  • Debian 6.0.0 Gnome/KDE/Xfce/LXDE/Standard (with persistence)
  • CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Xfce/OpenBox (with persistence)
  • XBMC Live 10.0 "Dharma" (with persistence)
  • Linux Mint Debian 2011-01 Gnome DVD (with persistence)
  • DouDou Linux 2010-11 (with persistence)
  • Linux Mint 10 "Julia" (KDE) DVD
  • ArchBang 2011.02
  • PartedMagic 5.10
  • SystemRescueCD 2.0.1
  • Puppeee 4.4 Celeron/Atom
  • Peppermint OS One 01-04-2011
  • Sabayon 5.5 Gnome & KDE
  • BackBox 1
  • VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi)
  • SMS (Superb Mini Server) Live 1.5.6
  • IPFire 2.9 - Core 44
  • ArchBang 2011.01 "Symbiosis"
  • Chakra 0.3.2 RC
  • Jolicloud 1.1.1
  • Finnix 101
  • SMS (Superb Mini Server) Live 1.5.6
  • Gnome 3 Beta
  • Grml 2010.12

I'm proud to say that LinuxLive USB Creator is the only Windows software supporting OpenSuse 11.3, XBMC LiveVMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi) and Gnome 3 Beta.

You should also be aware of the fact that I'm still working hard to have a very versatile tool. Even if your favourite Linux Distribution is not in the list they have great chances of working well right out of the box. I'm calling this feature the "default mode". Default mode is designed to work with as many linux as possible, and trust me when I say that it's not an easy task.


First big new feature is full support for VirtualBox 4.X. LiLi currently uses the latest version of VirtualBox which is 4.0.4.

To upgrade your existing Portable-VirtualBox you only have to recreate your key with LiLi 2.7.

The portable launcher still features the Auto-Switch (automatically running the 32 Bits or 64 Bits version) and the Hybrid-mode (running regular VirtualBox when available because it is faster).


I also improved the whole update process, LiLi is now using Secure HTTP and use less web queries than before.

Portable-VirtualBox is checked for integrity and cached uncompressed on disk to enable faster installation on key.

Portable-VirtualBox pack updates are now pushed in a very similar way as LiLi's updates and it's fully automatic !


LiLi is now translated in 16 languages so spread the word ! New languages available in 2.7 are :

  • Dutch
  • Russian
  • Hindi
  • Indonesian (Bahasa)

These languages are also availables : Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, korean, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish !

Thank you guys for your help !

Please note that I'm still missing a few translation in German, Indonesian and Hungarian. Contact me if you would like to help.


A splash screen with status informations is displayed at start. It should help with overall stability and fix a few crashes.

Persistence size is no more limited to 3950 MB (new limit is 4090MB). OpenSUSE support has been improved and should work better.

A lot of bugs have also been fixed. Please read the complete changelog for the full list.


Enjoy this new release and feel free to make some constructive feedbacks !

Oh, and one last thing : LiLi downloads counter is reaching ONE MILLION DOWNLOADS so THANK YOU !
