I understand that the instructions about creating a Debian installation
medium shall be usable on as many systems as possible, not only on
already installed Debian systems.
USB stick on a pre-udev SuSE:
brw-r----- 1 root disk 8, 32 2012-05-15 20:18 /dev/sdb
USB stick on FreeBSD 8:
crw-rw-r-- 1 root floppy 0, 124 May 15 20:13 /dev/da0
On Solaris it seems to be:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 60 Jun 8 2010 /dev/dsk/c5t0d0p0 -> ../../devices/pci@0,0/pci1458,5004@13,2/storage@4/disk@0,0:q
br-------- 1 root root 83, 272 Jun 8 2010 /devices/pci@0,0/pci1458,5004@13,2/storage@4/disk@0,0:q
I fail to find a device file with any w-permission in the c5t0d0 family of
/dev/dsk or /dev/rdsk. (When i was younger, Solaris looked more like Unix.)
There is a script
which finds the USB stick and writes some data onto the stick while issueing
several error messages.
But the stick afterwards does not bear the data which i gave as input
"image" to the script.
Have a nice day :)
