how do I make a usb boot drive from ubuntu TERMINAL
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 4, 2011
I tried posting before but got no help.
I have a eeepc netbook with 4 gig internal flash storage, no hard drive.
I broke the GUI. The ONLY way I can access it now is through a terminal.
It has barely enough space to get the ubuntu .iso image over to it.
I have tried upwards of 10 times with 2 or 3 different distros to make a bootable usb drive with my macintosh. The process appears to complete without errors but the usb sticks are 100% unbootable every time (i.e. the netbook refuses to boot from them, as does my mac).
I get the SAME result using the SAME usb stick that I originally used to install ubuntu on the netbook, so I know it did work once.
Regardless, I would like to try as a last hope to start from scratch making the bootable usb stick from my actual netbook.
I do NOT have access to a GUI (see above). Can you please direct me to instructions to make a bootable usb drive from ubuntu 8.something?

How to make a .patch file?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 2, 2009
I've tried making a diff on an ubuntu program to make a small change, but when I put the file in ./debian/patches directory of the source, it won't compile. When I run dpkg-buildpackage it starts, but gives error:
"Trying patch debian/patches/file.patch at level 1 ... 0 ... 2 ... failure."
The log shows:
"can't find file to patch at input line 4
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:"
