Post Is there something missing in the USB install instructions?
I followed the instructions at page http://www.sysresccd.org/Sysresccd-manu ... _USB-stick

Quote:
Mount the CD-ROM ISO image
You first have to mount the ISO image (or a media where you have burned it). You just need an empty directory on your system on which the ISO image can be mounted. We will use /tmp/cdrom in this example but you can use any directory such as /mnt/cdrom:
mkdir -p /tmp/cdrom
mount -o loop,exec /path/to/systemrescuecd-x86-x.y.z.iso /tmp/cdrom
Plug in the USB stick
Just make sure the USB stick has been plugged in, and wait a few seconds to be sure the device has been detected by the system.
Execute the installer
Now you just have to execute the installation script which is at the root of the CD-ROM. This script requires several commands to run but it won't be a problem. To be sure the script will always work, these commands are part of the CD-ROM:
cd /tmp/cdrom
bash ./usb_inst.sh
This script will show you a list of USB sticks detected on your system. Only removable medias are in the list. This way it's not possible to destroy a persistent device by accident.

Unmount the ISO image
Now you can unmount the ISO image
cd ~
umount /tmp/cdrom



After this the instructions are to unmount the ISO image. There are no instructions as to how to copy the iso file on to USB drive.

root@openick:/home/dirub# mount -o loop,exec /home/dirub/Downloads/systemRescue/systemrescuecd-x86-1.6.4.iso /tmp/cdrom
root@openick:/home/dirub# cd /tmp/cdrom
root@openick:/tmp/cdrom# bash ./usb_inst.sh
Device [/dev/sdb] detected as [SanDisk Cruzer Blade ] is removable and size=3835MB
* Device [/dev/sdb] is mounted: cannot use it

root@openick:/tmp/cdrom# ls /dev/sdb
/dev/sdb
root@openick:/tmp/cdrom# sudo fuser -km /dev/sda
root@openick:/tmp/cdrom# umount /dev/sda
umount: /dev/sda: not mounted
root@openick:/tmp/cdrom# bash ./usb_inst.sh

its not /dev/sdb what is mounted. sdb is the device.
i think /dev/sdb1 (partition) is mounted.

If you use a graphical systen try to "eject" or unmount via gui or use
umount /dev/sdb1
