I created and updated a live F9 USB drive on a 2G stick.

Then did a "yum upgrade" in small stages on it.
What I would like to know is how to get the new kernel loaded.
I made the initrd fine.
There is no grub.conf in /boot/grub.
If you hit tab at the boot screen the kernel line looks something like this:
vmlinuz0 initrd0.img root=UUID=XYXYXrw quiet liveimg overlay=UUID=XYXYXY rhgb check
I don't think this is possible. I believe persistence was added to
allow simple system changes and for user data to survive rebooting.
Kernel upgrades don't work - at least not for me when I tried it.
On the other hand you might try mounting your usb stick and adding
your own kernel and initrd to the syslinux directory, but this may take
a lot of time and still not work. A better solution may be to just
install a "regular" linux distro onto your usb stick?
