This message states that the ISO file isn't where you specified. You'd need to find where it is stored on your computer and then type in that reference.

(Depending on how you downloaded it, it might be under Downloads instead of Desktop... /home/lucifer/Downloads/slackware64-14.1-iso)

Hi,
NOT /home/lucifer/Desktop/slackware64-14.1-iso

IS /home/lucifer/Desktop/slackware64-14.1.iso

See the difference?

Your pic shows that the full path to the ISO is:
/home/lucifer/Desktop/slackware64-14.1.iso/slackware64-14.1-iso

In other words the name of the ISO file is the same as the name of the directory it lies in (which is unusual but not wrong).

So, plug-in yout USB stick, then just type the following commands, in that order
Code:
cd /home/lucifer/Desktop/slackware64-14.1-iso
pwd
ls -1
md5sum -c slackware64-14.1.iso.md5
lsblk -o model,name,size,fstype,mountpoint
dd if=slackware64-14.1.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=1M
sync
Comments about each command:
  1. The "cd" command ("cd stand for "change directory") makes the current (or working) directory be that where lies the ISO file.
  2. The "pwd" command (for "print working directory") just confirms that.
  3. The "ls -1" command lists the files in the current directory, one per line, allowing you to check the presence of the ISO and of its associated md5 file.
  4. The "md5sum -c" commands checks that the checksum stored in the file whose name ends in .md5 is identical to the one computed by this command. The answer should just be "OK", otherwise the file is corrupted and you should download then check it again.
  5. the "lsblk" command (for "list block devices") should confirm that the USB stick is recognized as /dev/sdb (no matter how many partitions it includes). Check the model. The fields displayed (arguments of the -o option) are in that order the model (or brand, or kind) of the device, the name of the device or partition, the size of the device or partition, the file system type (blank for the device, indicated for its partitions), the mount point of those among the partitions that are mounted (should be blank for all partitions of the USB stick).
  6. 5 The "dd" command (the meaning of the acronym is debated but think of it as "data destroyer " so be careful: it can overwrite the exiting data on your hard disk as well as on an USB stick, hence the "lsblk" command typed first) copies the file indicated after "if=" to the device or output file indicated after "of=". Double check what you write after "of="!
  7. The "sync" (for "synchronize") command synchronize cached writes to persistent storage, in other word flushes the data (make sure they are actually written to the media).

EDIT: fixed the directory name, misread from the pic, and added the "ls -1" command.

I believe it is this way when you use the torrent rather than just downloading the ISO from a mirror.

try this as su, or sudo:

Code:
dd if=/home/lucifer/Desktop/slackware64-14.1-iso/slackware64-14.1-install-dvd.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M status=progress && sync

dd: invalid status flag: ‘progress’
Try 'dd --help' for more information.


Very weird. I have tried two USB
Ok, just leave that off;
Code:
dd if=/home/lucifer/Desktop/slackware64-14.1-iso/slackware64-14.1-install-dvd.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M
Do you see where your typo is?

It is a little interesting that 'status=progress' didn't work. What version of dd are you using?
Code:
dd --version

Seems like the usb is not getting all the files it needs. When I reboot it says no UI configuration. I dont get it I downloaded the iso twice now.
