May I suggest that you replace
/dev/sda in this example with
/dev/sdX? Then note that the
should be replaced with the appropriate identifier for the USB flash drive. X
The reason being that it’s not uncommon for less-experienced users to blindly copy and paste a command into their terminal, and pasting that command will likely lead to unintended consequences.
You’ve got a point, thanks. Did as you suggested.
Now let’s just hope that none of those “less-experienced users” that blindly copy and paste commands see the original, still unchanged command you quoted and blindly copy and paste this from your post …
Good point; I have simply deleted my post, as it’s no longer necessary
Now just wait for the first topic asking for help for the following error:
error: device not found: /dev/sdX
Can new users be awarded this?
Sure, but they got to work hard for it!
I’m pretty sure I would have been allegiable for a few of those a few years (months/days) back…
I know you’re blowing off some steam.
Yeah, but at least it’s better to get an error message than nuking their installation
I’m surprised it took that long for a bloat comment from you.
