Sub_title: Needed by unetbootin
 

Unetbootin needs mtools and p7zip. You can install in wary p7zip from common repository by PPM. I have compiled in wary the attached mtools. Install it. Download from:

http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/unetbootin-linux-latest

the latest unetbootin and copy it in /usr/bin. Give it execute permissions and rename it just "unetbootin". Having installed p7zip and mtools launch unetbootin in terminal typing:

Code:
unetbootin installtype=USB targetdrive=/dev/sdxy
mtools-4.0.18-w5.pet

Sub_title: Won't see my USB drive
 

I installed Unetbootin as directed. The window comes up, but the program won't pick up my USB. The message suggests I format the drive to fat32, but that's already the case. Is this a problem of mtools?
Thanks. The solution works perfectly.

Have you taken the suggestion to launch unetbootin in terminal telling to it the target drive?

Code:
unetbootin installtype=USB targetdrive=/dev/sdb1


I assume the usb stick is sdb1. User SFR found that unetbootin works without passing the target drive in slacko 5.3.3 because that puppy handles drives by uuid. Other puppies can't handle drives by uuid by default so you have to tell to unetbootin what drive to use as in the above command line.
