and I went to close terminal i got this message:
There is still a process running in this terminal. Closing the terminal will kill it.
What the heck would that have been? Any idea?
All I did was su to root, ran blkid to make sure I had the correct device, burn the image to the usb and close termainal. Nothing else.
