    Could some of you test if live-usb-maker (cli and gui versions) work? I think the gui app may be broken for antiX-19 series.

    Make sure you are fully upgraded.

    Test 1: Use live-usb-maker (cli) to ‘burn’ a live usb. Does it finish correctly and boot?

    Test 2: Use live-usb-maker (gui) to ‘burn’ a live usb. Does it finish correctly and boot?

    Test 3: Use live-usb-maker (gui) to ‘burn’ in dd mode. Does it finish correctly and boot?

    Thanks

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    I upgraded my 19.b3 32-bit frugal (base version), then tested both gui & cli live-usb-maker — did both for full-featured antix & dd. All 4 live-usbs created fine & booted perfectly.

    Hello anticapitalista
    using hp 8440p antiX-19.b3_x64, 4.9.189-antix.1-amd64-smp x86_64,upgraded, spacefm-fluxbox
    live-usb-maker 0.4.0 , live-usb-maker-gui-antix 0.2.3

    2 using fluxbox menu, ControlCentre >Disks >Live USB Maker (gui)=
    target usb2 100% Full-featured mode , checkmark Make the ext4 filesystem even if one exists. burn MX-19 beta-3_x64iso to device.
    This live OS device booted yes normally to default desktop on one desktop Firsti3intel and on one notebook Firsti5intel machines.
    one for one on #Test 2

    3 target usb2 Image mode , burn antiX-19.b3_x64-fulliso to device.
    This completed dd file device booted yes normally to default desktop on one desktop and on one notebook machines.
    one for one on #Test 3

    1 using fluxboxmenu, Applications >System >App Select >>Command Line Control Centre >>Execute or
    using fluxbox menu, Applications >antiX >Command Line Control Centre >>Live System Centre >>live-usb-maker
    target usb2 , full-featured, from ISO antiX-19.b3-full_x64. make_, copy.
    This completed live OS device booted yes normally to default desktop on one desktop and on one notebook machines.

    That is full success but just one trial each. The full-featured devices took five and a half minutes to burn.

    Running antiX-19.b3-full_x64 with all updates. Yesterday, GUI from Control-Centre failed to burn.

    I see there was new code for that today, so will try again with today’s updates.

    In dd mode from control centre with all updates applied to antiX-19.b3-full_x64, the sha256sum did not match.

    What is interesting is that if I run the dd command manually that the log had in it, the the checksum matches, but from the control centre it does not. I happened to have burned nutyx to a usb before I saw this post, and so was checking it.

    Here is the log of when I ran it via the GUI from a terminal, I see now it was running version 0.2.2 at that time:

    bobc@xps15:/usr/local/bin
    $ sudo live-usb-maker-gui-antix
    [sudo] password for bobc: 
    QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-root'

    live-usb-maker --help | grep data-first
    lsblk --nodeps -nlo name,size,model,vendor -I 3,8,22,179,259
    . /usr/local/lib/cli-shell-utils/cli-shell-utils.bash;get_drive $(get_live_dev) 
    Options:  "-N "
    start io is  1
    max progress bar is  3514369
    live-usb-maker gui partition-clear -NC off --target sdc
    ""
    dd bs=1M if="/media/BIGData/iso/NuTyX_x86_64-mate-20191015.iso" of=/dev/sdc
    ""
    bobc@xps15:/usr/local/bin
    

    When I check the sha256sum I get one value, but its different than the one it was supposed to be, and I recalculated it from the .iso just to be sure:

    $ sudo head -c $(stat -c '%s' NuTyX_x86_64-mate-20191015.iso) /dev/sdc | sha256sum
    2edc6f591161ee55804068fe1b33b3c3533485929dc1b443e4d5abff224c65fb  -
    bobc@xps15:/media/BIGData/iso
    $ cat NuTyX_x86_64-mate-20191015.sha256sum 
    e6f3ac1167d8d4ea0eabe1bb77a5061a2391a9587ce15204bbdba8cae4ce7136  NuTyX_x86_64-mate-20191015.iso
    bobc@xps15:/media/BIGData/iso
    $ sha256sum NuTyX_x86_64-mate-20191015.iso 
    e6f3ac1167d8d4ea0eabe1bb77a5061a2391a9587ce15204bbdba8cae4ce7136  NuTyX_x86_64-mate-20191015.iso
    

    So then I use the dd command from the log to write it again and check it, but it looks good:

    $ sudo dd bs=1M if="/media/BIGData/iso/NuTyX_x86_64-mate-20191015.iso" of=/dev/sdc
    1716+0 records in
    1716+0 records out
    1799356416 bytes (1.8 GB, 1.7 GiB) copied, 382.363 s, 4.7 MB/s
    bobc@xps15:/media/BIGData/iso
    $ sudo dd if=/dev/sdc bs=4096 count=$(($(stat -c '%s' NuTyX_x86_64-mate-20191015.iso) / 4096)) | sha256sum
    439296+0 records in
    439296+0 records out
    1799356416 bytes (1.8 GB, 1.7 GiB) copied, 9.52737 s, 189 MB/s
    e6f3ac1167d8d4ea0eabe1bb77a5061a2391a9587ce15204bbdba8cae4ce7136  -
    

    Then I try it again from the control centre directly, wait a couple min, then come here to check it:

    $ sudo dd if=/dev/sdc bs=4096 count=$(($(stat -c '%s' NuTyX_x86_64-mate-20191015.iso) / 4096)) | sha256sum
    439296+0 records in
    439296+0 records out
    1799356416 bytes (1.8 GB, 1.7 GiB) copied, 151.238 s, 11.9 MB/s
    2edc6f591161ee55804068fe1b33b3c3533485929dc1b443e4d5abff224c65fb  -
    

    But its wrong again with the same value as the first time it was wrong.

    $ sudo live-usb-maker-gui-antix -v
    QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-root'
    Version: 0.2.4
    

    So I redid it via the GUI in dd mode again, and double checked the version, here is a pic of it running:

    I got the same wrong checksum again:

    $ sudo dd if=/dev/sdc bs=4096 count=$(($(stat -c '%s' NuTyX_x86_64-mate-20191015.iso) / 4096)) | sha256sum

    I will try to see if I can figure out how to do a YAD script to check an .iso compared to a checksum file and compare it to a calculated checksum from the device. I will try to do it first using PPC’s YAD screens as an example, and if I can get it to work I will try to localize it, too. I always wished I had a program to check the iso’s I burn to flash drives or CD/DVD, anyway, so I know it would be nice to have for a small amount of code.

    Let me know if you see an error in my calculations. The logic came from Julien Palard here: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/75483/how-to-check-if-the-iso-was-written-to-my-usb-stick-without-errors

    Ok, one more test and I go sleep. I burned antix 19 386 base in live mode and tested it, then did it manually via dd. The resule is the same as with nutyx in dd mode:

    Tried again this morning with cli version. It appears to write but the sha256sum and md5sums do not match with originals. This assumes I am doing my check correctly.

    I saw its been updated today. I burned it again with the cli version, told it to check md5, and it said they were ok. I booted it in a different machine with checkmd5 on at boot and it booted and ran fine. I think the test command that tested the md5 of the flashdrive doesn’t work in all cases anymore, suspecting the ones that are not written in straight dd mode.

    Yes, I am pretty sure the last command to get the md5 of the flashdrive doesn’t work right for a distro burned as an iso-hybrid, and that’s why it doesn’t match. It makes sense, but I would have thought there would be a way to calculate it and get a matching number. Sometimes flashdrives are bad.

    Anyway, the current program is working, so I feel better… Thanks for antix-19!

    I will try to see if I can figure out how to do a YAD script to check an .iso compared to a checksum file and compare it to a calculated checksum from the device

    Hi Bob, here’s a script that may help you- it does half the job- it calculates the checksum of a file, and displays it on screen. The user can then copy the results and open the file checksum’s text file, paste the result below the original value and visually check if the values match…
    You can automate the second part (comparing the checksum string)- but I felt no need to do that- I had no time, so I just adapted 2 scripts from YAD’s smokey01 webpage- that did not run anymore… (I hope the forum does not mangle this…)

    #!/bin/sh
    v=yad --button="OK" --text="Drop your file here, then press the button and wait for a new window with the calculated checksum" --dnd | sed 's/^.......//'
    o=$(sha256sum $v)
    yad –title=”CheckSum” –form –field=”” “$o” –no-buttons –geometry=550×50+500+0

    Since antiX-19 has been released, I’m closing this thread.
    Thanks for all the feedback.

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.
