Hmm got the "easydd"
ran into problems straight away on Xenial64
Code:
Need 'pupmessage' or 'gxmessage' utilities


You have probably dealt with this somewhere already but at 52 pages I'm not going to read through just yet.

OK so I got the file down and tried with easydd but it did not work as a command line either
Code:
easydd xerus64-8.5-8gb.img.gz sdb


so i did the normal dd thing after first formating the stick with gparted . I will try an ext4 first as I find these more reliable . I set the boot flag on .

Code:

root# dd  if=xerus64-8.5-8gb.img.gz of=sdb
1108791+1 records in
1108791+1 records out
567701482 bytes (568 MB, 541 MiB) copied, 3.14177 s, 181 MB/s
root#

and now to boot from it

And what do I get
Code:

wee 0>find --set-root /grldr
wee 15> /grldr
wee 17.> -


Hmm Not happy Jan !

I better try extracting the image file first-Yes thats looking better

Code:
root# dd  if=./xerus64-8.5-8gb.img of=/dev/sdb
14680064+0 records in
14680064+0 records out
7516192768 bytes (7.5 GB, 7.0 GiB) copied, 2397.61 s, 3.1 MB/s
root#

2397.61 s=40 minutes to write to USB2 stick

Now to see if it boots

Yep - using it now . Thanks Barry I'll let you know what I think . First though I might use a USB3 stick the 2 is very slow.

WoW

Using Seamonkey its about the slowest system I have ever used . Don't know if it gets faster or if a USB3 stick would improve it but I think I'll ditch this and try to cut a CD and boot from it

Just don't have the time to sit and wait..

Could not get a lastpass addon for seamonkey . They have been monkeying around with it . Its the one main add-on I use together with Adblock so if they are not there its useless for me and they are not it seems.

Back on xenial64 and its going well.

Regarding this:

Code:
easydd xerus64-8.5-8gb.img.gz sdb


If you downloaded easydd to the current directory, not into the $PATH, then you will need to prefix:

Code:
./easydd xerus64-8.5-8gb.img.gz


...also, I recommend leave off the "sdb", as easydd will probe for it and ask which drive, which makes things less error-prone.

Yes, apart from expanding the image-file first, that will only write to a file named "sdb", not to the drive:

Code:
dd  if=xerus64-8.5-8gb.img.gz of=sdb


One important thing, type "sync" in the terminal before unplugging the drive, after having run dd.
