unable to write to pen when booting from it

Post by jorsmal » 28 Jan 2010, 17:00

hi,
i boot rescuecd from a pendrive and everything works fine
i'm trying to use partimage to make images of the partitions in my hard drive.
rescuecd mounts pendrive on /mnt/cdrom
when i try to create an image in /mnt/cdrom it is not possible
what should i do?

Just remount it read/write. Use something like

Code: Select all

mount -o rw,remount /dev/sd_ /mnt/cdrom
