Yeah, I'm not even getting to the point of running the installer because of
the partitioning/swap issue. But clearly it alters the USB in some fashion
after the first boot. For that matter, the first time I ran live I didn't
so much as start the installer. But it still screwed up the sticks ability
to boot.

You are probably using an USB stick with 1GB. The KDE Live image on a USB
stick tries use the remaining space on the stick and put there a partition
with the name hybrid. However on a 1 GB stick this partition is not large
enough. So you end up with a non-bootable stick. If you use a 2 GB stick it
will work. See https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=728261
Because there are more problems with this hybrid, hybrid has been removed from
the Live image for GM. So the GM Live image will be usable on a 1 GB USB
stick.


i've had the same happen to me, using an 8GB stick. that 'hybrid' partition was created, and after being used to start a live session once, it didn't boot again and i had to re-write the stick. something doen't work as expected, i'm afraid. (this wasn't one of the latest isos, though, a month or so ago.)
