Re: How to resize the IMG USB Live-Debian pendrive ?
Thanks for the information!
A question would it be possible to do it automatically with qtparted or gparted for non linux expert?
All the best / Best regards

dd if=debian-live.img of=/dev/sdadoes infact three things:
* writing a bootsector,
* writing a partition table and
* writing the actual files into /dev/sda1
After that, you only should add partitions. And only without touching
the fresh created /dev/sda1.
The added partitions can be used for persistent storage.
In other words: See /dev/sda1 as a (read-only) CDROM
and the other partitions as (write-able) disk space on the pendrive.
