It's rather interesting that you were able to boot at all. That's usually not the case. Because WE are not supported by Unetbootin.

While possibly useful in some cases this is far less flexible (all data is erased, no stick filling partition, ...) and could quite easily cause data loss.

Does it? I don't see how extracting an iso image like an archive with an archive manager and double-clicking an executable, should be difficult. Anyway, unetbootin certainly makes it still a bit easier (while being a tiny bit less flexible) by just requiring one to point at the iso and stick and I certainly had no problem if it were to support Salix.

It's not unsupported without reason! Usually it does not work at all!!! So you're a lucky man. Actually we would be pleased if it did work, but it doesn't.
What more do you expect us to do?
- Code: Select all
chris[sailixlive]$ file-roller --extract-here salixlive-xfce-13.37-64.iso
So? You're version of file-roller probably got a bug. What are we supposed to do about that? Is this on Salix? (Cause on a Salix 13.37 64-Bit installation this does not happen here.)
