Re: SR 2.2.0 ./usb_inst.sh fails to write

Really, you're not making much sense: I've never heard of such a miscopying. FWIW I use ReiserFS for all my partitions except /boot .
Does anyone else have anything useful to say re this problem ?

Re: SR 2.2.0 ./usb_inst.sh fails to write

I edited the script to remove the file as named with '_' & the error msgs disappeared, but there was no further result (of course, I copied the content of the ISO to another writable dir & ran everything from there). I then ran the script adding 'writembr /dev/sdb' & got the error msg re missing pgm...

Re: SR 2.2.0 ./usb_inst.sh fails to write

Here is the requested output. I use /z/sysres/sr-2.2.0/ to mount the ISO : /z/ is a large space I use for temporary stuff. The dir /var/tmp/usb_inst.tmp/ did not exist before I ran the script usb_inst.sh . It looks as if the problem is a typo in the script, confusing '-' with '_' : I'll also try edi...

Re: SR 2.2.0 ./usb_inst.sh fails to write

I tested it again (see previous msg) & it still fails as before. 'ls -l /var/tmp' now gives drwxrwxrwx 6 root root 816 Jun 19 02:05 tmp but the script exits with the same 'nocando' msg. I tried removing /var/tmp/usb_inst.tmp/install_mbr by hand & checked it had gone with 'ls -l', but the script stil...

Re: SR 2.2.0 ./usb_inst.sh fails to write

Thanks for your prompt reply. The problem seems to be that /var/tmp is sticky :
drwxrwxrwt 6 root root 816 Jun 19 01:41 tmp
It's not a symlink to /tmp nor would I want it to be.
I will unstick /var/tmp & see if I can test the script again with another USB stick.

SR 2.2.0 ./usb_inst.sh fails to write

I tried to use your recommended method of installing SR 2.2.0 on a USB stick on Gentoo. I've tried several times, but run into the same problem each time: root:547 sr> bash ./usb_inst.sh /dev/sdb1 rmdir: failed to remove `/var/tmp/usb_inst.tmp': Directory not empty ./usb_inst.sh: SystemRescueCd inst...
