<mark_weaver>the normal disk image with GRUB has been working well enough that none of the existing developers seem motivated to work on creating an ISO
<mark_weaver>or in case anyone else is listening who believes in giving credit where it is due...
<DusXMT>And it was even argued several times that USB drives are more convenient for this purpose, and sometimes even neccessary, on machines which don't have a CD drive, like netbooks
<joshuaBPMan>Just to be clear, I'm not bashing the GNU guix people. I think they're awesome.
<kyamashita>joshuaBPMan: Yeah, I don't think anyone picked up that vibe.
<mark_weaver>joshuaBPMan: no worries, and fwiw, yours was an understandable assumption.
<joshuaBPMan>does anyone know of a way to graphically burn a usb stick? I've tried the dd way several times on 3 different sticks, and I keep not being able to get it right. I'm about to try on a new stick. haha
<joshuaBPMan>and I'm not mounting it. I'm mounting it now, because I have to get the picures on the current usb off before I burn the image onto it.
<DusXMT>And if you want to fix it, (restore the partition table, so that you can use it as a regular USB stick), you can use fdisk, there press "o", "p", a couple times enter, "w", and then mkfs.ext2 /dev/sdX1
