@Ian bell: I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you are not a spammer, but I removed the link to the Windows-only software.

Your use of dd is correct. Smiley

I never tried USB install of VLocity 7.0, so no personal experiences to pass on. There are a couple of discussions of it in these threads:

Regarding the use of Unetbootin, it allows you to select a previously downloaded ISO file instead of picking one from the pre-populated list. I have done this with several of the 7.1 images, and with those I am happy to report that Unetbootin has worked every time.

My Screen Recorder is a better screen recording software. It records your screen and audio from the speakers or your voice from the microphone - or both simultaneously. The recordings are clear and look great when played back on your PC or uploaded to YouTube. It will record directly to standard compressed format that works with any video editor or any tool, no conversion required.

And with unetbootin wich distribution i need to choose? D:

EDIT: there is any guide with the "dd method" for the 7?

RE_EDIT: is like this: "sudo dd if=/home/ubuntulinux/Scrivania/ubuntu.iso of=/dev/sdc" where:

if : link Input File
of: link Device usb?

And with this method I can install the first .iso I linked? O:

RE_RE_EDIT: I had done the writing on usb with 'dd' (with the iso file: VL64-7.0.1-STD-FINAL.iso) but I still have that problem.
I tried both BIOS mode, legacy and UEFI D:
Nothing D:
(sorry for the multiple EDIT)

The 7.0 version should be transferred to usb using "dd", which can be risky unless you know exactly what you are doing.

I would recommend you go here:
and download the latest RC version.

On your Ubuntu machine, first install Unetbootin.
Insert the usb stick, make sure it is formatted as FAT32, and delete all files from it (including hidden ones).
Run Unetbootin and follow the prompts.

VL 7.1 Light RC 1.2:
Wget can't download an https link. Same problem makes QupZilla crash when SSL is encountered.

It's possible that this is a local problem. Someone else, who installed to a VM, reported it worked normally for them.

Could someone with an RC 1.2 install on real hardware check this out please? Be sure that running 'openssl version' returns "1.0.1j" as the version number. (see edit, below)

Easy way to see if it works:
or use any https file URL that you're sure won't revert to http.


Edit: Right after posting, 1.0.1k appeared in untested. Upgrading to it fixes the problem. Besides enabling untested, you might have to temporarily disable patches to get this -- or download directly and installpkg.

1.0.1k (or a yet-unreleased newer version) should appear on the next ISO, so this isn't a continuing issue. Leaving the post for the record.

Trying to figure out how to upgrade the Mesa stack and Nouveau as well.  Tallow is being a pain in my backside.

If you go to terminal as root and type:

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Does it detect it then? If so, you can then type: update-grub and it should have the new menu entry.

I usually find better success in running vliloconf might just be me though.
