Permission error linux (BZCAT)


Recommended Posts

Hello all, Thank you so much for the wonderful guides !


Wanted to share my first hurdle with the community.


Whilst following your directions to create the image from linux, using "bzcat <image.tar.bz2> > <drive>" bzcat would spit out a permission issue. I searched the forum for keywords bzcat and a few others, but did not find anything, so forgive me if this has been covered, but may warrant a note in the instructions.


This also occured when attempting sudo permissions.


The resolution is as follows :


do a "sudo chmod 666 <driveNode>" and continue with the previous command, and the image should begin writing just fine.


Hope I helped with my minor contribution !
