YUMI

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

YUMI

#1 Post by Midas » Tue Nov 20, 2012 3:32 am

An excelent flash drive boot tool, that has been mentioned a couple of times here at TPFC (see http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/ ... 361#p37361 and http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/ ... 088#p49088), but hasn't been the subject of a proper submission. Here it is, then... :mrgreen:
http://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/ author wrote:YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer) [...] can be used to create a Multiboot USB Flash Drive containing multiple operating systems, antivirus utilities, disc cloning, diagnostic tools, and more. Contrary to MultiBootISO's which used Grub to boot ISO files directly from USB, YUMI uses syslinux to boot extracted distributions stored on the USB device, and reverts to using grub to Boot Multiple ISO files from USB, if necessary. Aside from a few distributions, all files are stored within the Multiboot folder, making for a nicely organized Multiboot Drive that can still be used for other storage purposes.

I think this should be submitted to the database. This is just the multiboot version of Universal USB Installer and they usually both get updated with the same features. I find multibooting with multiple linux distro's, windows installers, Hiren's and other system utilities in a single USB stick more useful.

If it meets the requirements of TPFC, then you can submit it yourself.

But.. but.. I'm new and I'm lazy lol. Just kidding. I have a 6 year old account here that I forgot the password for. I only planned to just suggest stuff when I made this new account. Let you guys do all the dirty work hehe. But I'll see what I can do when I get the privilege.

Why didn't you select 'Forgot my password.'

I wonder why multiple accounts aren't frowned upon here? They are on other Forums I know of.

If you can take the first few steps for us, that might help get the entry together. So a 32x32 icon, screenshot, file size, Unicode, extract instructions, Windows versions supported, etc.

Certainly in the context of abuse, I definitely frown upon it. The issue hasn't really come up yet, although it certainly could if a user made an idea or issue is more popular or of greater concern.

I suppose you're right, we have been lucky in that instance.

Well its exactly the same as Universal USB Installer - http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1834&ts=1354122835
Except it has the added ability to boot multiple OS's, system utilities, iso's, Linux etc. So pretty much use the same information and icons with just a different description.
But I was thinking maybe it's not necessary to submit. Universal USB Installer already has a comment mentioning YUMI and the website advertises both programs anyway.

The email I used that was associated was a throwaway gmail account. I have don't remember what password or security info I used anymore. Since it was 6 years since I last used it.

I can see how multiple accounts can be abused. Like how reddit or digg used fake accounts vote up articles to the frontpage.

Added here http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2368

I just copy pasta'd the description from the website and added a link to Universal USB Installer since they're almost identical. Not sure if it's against the rules to refer to similar apps.

This is definitely worthwhile.

Its complicated enough to justify keeping UUSB (Its not over duplication, so don't replace UUSB.)

For the record, I found cases in which YUMI didn't work but UUSB did -- the previous Linux Mint Debian Edition was one of them...

EDIT: confirmed by the "Known problems in LMDE" page (see below).
