I have a student license for Mathematica 10.3 and I recently got myself a chromebook (Acer c720) and was wondering if it was possible to install on, say, my SD card. I attempted it once the other night and it didn't quite seem to work, the details of which I will give.
I currently have Lubuntu on the chromebook, and with the current install of Mathematica 10.1 on the internal disk the remaining space on it is <1GB. I am, of course, willing to change the distro if it is somehow required to install on a removable drive. I recently attempted to install it in the following manner: with the setup .sh stored on an external hard drive, and an empty SD Card inserted, I ran the install which successfully created a directory inside the SD Card, but afterwards seemed to do nothing. By this I mean it proceeded to attempt to install but made no progress, and the low CPU usage indicated that there wasn't any installation activity.
In short: has anyone tried installing Mathematica on a removable drive with Linux? Or know if its even possible?
