HOWTO install CRUX via USB Pendrive

Author: Jose V Beneyto


Generating the USB Pendrive:

1 - First, you need to build the image by executing the make_usbdisk script like this:

 $ sudo ./make_usbdisk crux-2.5.iso

2 - Then create the installation media with the image you built:

 $ sudo dd if=crux-2.5.usbdisk.img of=/dev/XXX


If you experienced some problems with other scripts and they are related to the fake cdrom environment, just you should change the crux_dir variable in those scripts (/cdrom/crux is the default). Or you can create a symlink to the cdrom path doing something like:

 $ ln -sf usbdisk /cdrom
