Hello,

I am trying to make a live USB stick following along the lines of this
Kiwi Cookbook instruction:
https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:KIWI_Coo...Live_USB-Stick

I figured out how to point the kiwi commands to the newer versions that
are supported in the example files of the kiwi distribution that I
installed. I figured out the 32-bit versus 64-bit commands. I am under
the impression that the "usb" type isn't supported any longer since it
isn't an option in the config.xml file (only the oem-type is).

So following along the oem instructions I keep running into this
failure:

Failed to loop mount /tmp/myusb/image/suse-12.2-live.i686-2.5.2 to:
/tmp/kiwiboot.sOXScy: mount: unknown filesystem type '(null)'

I have also tried using other kiwi commands described for the usb-type
(i.e. --installstick) but get the same failure. As a result of this
failure, I don't seem to be able to create the required ".raw" file in
order to dd- over the image to the usb stick.

Here is the log file from the initial failure....
