Has the system been changed?

Post by mhwelsh »

Some time ago the following instructions were proposed to create a bootable usb stick

Code: Select all

linux Iso # dd if=./lmde-2-201503-cinnamon-64bit.iso of=/dev/sdc1 oflag=direct bs=1048576
When I use it now I receive an error message;

Code: Select all

isolinux.bin missing or corrupt
I note that in the download section it mentions; Yumi multiboot
The LMDE ISOs and the live installer use a different structure than the ones used by other distributions. Please do not use Yumi or multiboot technologies with LMDE as it won't install properly.

Is this statement relevant and if so what does it mean?

The downloaded .iso file matches the MD5 sum given in the Download section.

Reason: Moved the thread from "Main Edition" to "LMDE 2". This ISO filename lmde-2-201503-cinnamon-64bit.iso suggests that this thread is about "LMDE 2" and not about the Mint "Main Editions" Mint 13 and Mint 17.x

It may be the decimal point preceding the input path.

That's why some people appear smart until you hear what they are saying.

This may be a repeat!
The code used to create the usb stick is the code used in your link.
The ./prefix to the .iso file name ensures that the file is only taken from the location where the console is located.


Does the statement;
"The LMDE ISOs and the live installer use a different structure than the ones used by other distributions."
mean that LMDE ISOs are suitable for use in Debian based systems?

If you have Linux MInt or LMDE installed, you can use MintStick to create a bootable usb disk.

This is not correct. It's an ISO, it is aimed at installing a system. Not being used inside...
I don't understand what you want to express.

But if you ask if you can create a bootable USB disk in Debian or LMDE, then the answer is yes. That's just an iso file.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

It would appear that the system that I normally use is producing erroneus results.

When I go back to my original LMDE and format the usb stick and load the iso with mint software it all works.

Presently loading LMDE2 Betsy.

Thanks
