Post Installing from USB and copy Screen Shot!!!


hello.
I tried to Install Debian 8 Jessie from the USB and when I got Screen Shot from the screen, The installer Saved my Screen Shot into "/var/log" but I can't copy it into USB because of it Seems as CD-ROM and CD-ROM is read only. How can I solve it?

Thank you.

You may not need lsusb.

Yes, depending on how you put linux on a usb it can in some cases not allow you to save data off. In some cases you can create a second partition on the usb. A second usb would be easier.

If this usb is just for install then not a big deal, generally I install linux to the usb in a normal install instead of a live usb creator way.

Dear Hack3rcon,
ok, I understand now your post and your problem.
you have a usb flash memory with a installer of Debian. Your computer think your usb is a cd-rom.
your usb flash memory cannot be open for writing a file.
So, you probably know by now this, but when you format your usb to use it as an installer, the program that format your usb tell to the usb to behave it as a cdrom.
The solution of jefro is giving is multiple:
do you have another usb to copy the file?
if not, can you make a partition in your usb to have 2 usb in one? One partition will host the installer and will behave as a cdrom where you cannot write and the other partition will behave as a standard usb where you can write.

Does it solve your problem?

Faithfully,
M.

Reading it more I have to ask why the busybox? Debian shouldn't have busybox unless it falls back.
