I have to create a live USB media I can boot a machine with that has no network devices. At the same time, it has to be capable of writing to/reading from exFAT formatted devices. I had to find out that in most Linux distributions (newest Ubuntu, openSUSE,...), this is not a supported feature by default. Is there any Linux distribution that supports exFAT by default or any way to install fuse-exfat on the live USB media in a way that it remains installed across reboots?

Any answers are appreciated Thanks in advance.

  • Being not support by default, and not compiled directly in the kernel and present as a module are quite different things. – Rui F Ribeiro Nov 18 '16 at 19:45
  • @RuiFRibeiro What are you trying to tell me in relation to the question? – v8_bigblock Nov 18 '16 at 19:51

Knoppix (>= 7.0.4) has exFAT-fuse support.
