Hello friends and developers, I'm a beginner in Linux and I got my first suggestion to use Fedora and it is honestly one of the best distros ever. I want a fully functional(and presistant) install on USB drive, I tried the Fedora Docs solutions and non worked, then I reached an app called LiLi(Linux live USB creator) which succeeded to a point, I have now presistant boot option upon boot, but I get the error "presistant space not found" when choosing the option.

I'm a total newbie at the Terminal so by just copy pasting the commands in fedora docs, it did not work.

Can you link the docs page please?

The way this usually works is that you have one USB with a live system and a second USB onto which you perform a regular install.

I've seen people installing it with persistent on a 8 GB USB drive but a regular install needs a lot more than that.

Also you can just install Fedora on a flash drive. You'd need at least 16Gb drive, 32Gb will give you more space to install additional software and save your docs. Just install it as usual, choosing your flash drive as a destination. Faster flash drive will give you smoother experience. It also should be quite portable, maybe less so than true live image, but still not tied to just one computer.

I won't recommend it as you primary working environment, but to test / play with / have with you just in case it should be ok.
