Too hard for me to read the code and the sed-command is not my problem.


I wrote this recently:

https://bkhome.org/linux/easydd-write-image-file-to-drive.html

There is also my own take on a self-extracting portable easydd. It uses the chroot method, and needs testing:

https://bkhome.org/news/202005/easydd-portable-runs-on-any-linux.html

If you have a recent pup or pup-derivative, you don't need any of the portable creations, just the bare script.
Reason is, all pups have 'gtkdialog', and if no more than a couple of years old will have a suitable 'dd' utility.

I've bought some "intenso" SD-Cards who like to loose data,
Updating a backup with rsync to an SD-card ends up with errors like:
Code:

rsync: readlink_stat("/mnt/sdd1/backup/stein.jpg") failed: Input/output error (5)
...
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1165) [sender=3.1.0]

I am sure the easydd could elliminate the trouble Embarassed


Oh, and easydd is only for writing an OS image file to a drive. It is not for anything else such as file backup with rsync.
