Installer

Post by jmdlcar » Sat Jul 16, 2016 5:25 pm

Will that command line below create a zenwalk USB installer? But if not what will?

Code: Select all

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
