First : thank you for providing this new aptosid 2010-03 xfce.

Have done a poor mans's install, using the grub config files of 2010-02. I have copied the new aptosid.iso and initrd0.686 / vmlinuz0.686 to the appropiate places. This is my grub.cfg entry :
      Code:
menuentry "aptosid from iso (686)" {
  loopback loop /aptosid.iso
  linux (loop)/boot/vmlinuz0.686 boot=fll fromhd=UUID=C519-AA67 fromiso=/aptosid.iso nointro quiet persist=/aptosid/aptosid-rw lang=us tz=Europe/Brussels
  initrd (loop)/boot/initrd0.686
}

Made also a new '/aptosid/aptosid-rw' as per your instructions.
Get following errormessage :
      Code:
Using /aptosid/aptosid-rw filesystem-in-a-file... Failed to mount /aptosid/aptosid-rw persistent filesystem-in-a-file.


Usb stick is vfat formatted.

Any hint?

Yes,
Maybe I am just too lazy and this is the fastest way.
But also one serious reason. I didn't want to reformat the stick since it contains a lot of important data. Know I could have copied it to another place and then back.
Also : would like to know if there are big differences between 2010-03 and 2010-02 especially as to what concerns poor man's installation.

No there are no differences concerning fromiso and persist.
u can let fsck check the persist file.

Thank you for your hint.

Here are my findings :
      Code:
aptosid@aptosid:~$ sudo fsck.ext2  /fll/C519-AA67/aptosid/aptosid-rw
e2fsck 1.41.12 (17-May-2010)
fsck.ext2: Read-only file system while trying to open /fll/C519-AA67/aptosid/aptosid-rw
Disk write-protected; use the -n option to do a read-only
check of the device.

aptosid@aptosid:~$ sudo ls -al  /fll/C519-AA67/aptosid/aptosid-rw
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 1610612736 Dec 27 15:24 /fll/C519-AA67/aptosid/aptosid-rw

aptosid@aptosid:~$ sudo fsck.ext2 -n /fll/C519-AA67/aptosid/aptosid-rw
e2fsck 1.41.12 (17-May-2010)
/fll/C519-AA67/aptosid/aptosid-rw: clean, 11/98304 files, 6756/393216 blocks

/aptosid/aptosid-rw is read-only according to 'fsck.ext2' but 'ls -al' shows it is not.

More ideas?

looks like the persist with vfat is borked on the release.
Persist using an underlying ext2/3/4 file system works ok.

Maybe, you can try creating a new aptosid-rw by executing the following command as root
      Code:
dd if=/dev/zero of="[path to your rw-folder]/aptosid-rw" bs=1k count="2048000" && mkfs.ext2 [path to your rw-folder]/aptosid-rw && tune2fs -c 0 [path to your rw-folder]/aptosid-rw


On FAT32 it is possible to increase count to 4096000 (4GB)
