Will that command line below create a zenwalk USB installer? But if not what will?
Code:
sudo dd if=/home/guest/Downloads/zenwalk-8.0.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M status=progress oflag=nocache,sync && sync


Where of=/dev/sdb could it point to this of=/dev/sdb1 or not?

I use Universal USB Installer to install Zenwalk but Universal USB Installer I guest it didn't work. I was waiting on what I posted but no one replay to it that why I use Universal USB Installer cause it work on other distro before.

ok, but you could simply have copied the ISO to the USB disk with dd

Hello,
Zenwalk 8 Current Version is working pretty good, all time I find out what I need with Zenwalk,
In my case with my new Laptop I have a GPT partition and EFI system, so for me now it was a new challenge
wasn't possible make a USB Boot in the normal way, its work only with Rufus if I want to boot it with EFI activated I don't know why
This is the only distribution that detect my hardware correctly for example my bluetouch I am glad to see all working, its a Lenovo s41

The only thing that I would like to do is add parameters for ELILO, Can I make it multiboot ? I swear leave Zenwalk to boot first hehehe

Congrats for this wonderful release, miss the forum.
