So I was creating a archlinux usb bootable drive:
[root@masterkorp-laptop Downloads]# dd bs=4M
130+1 records in 130+1 records out 548405248 bytes (548 MB) copied, 0.964976 s, 568 MB/s
I was like WOW, this was too fast! But nothing ever gets written to the pen drive. To add to the weird factor, a dd to dev/sdb1 (partition) works as it should, slowly. But then ofcourse the iso gets unbootable.
The md5sum on the iso is correct. I tried with diferent pen drives.
Please, any suggestions is welcome.†mo
I've been having this sort of problems with removable storage lately (copying multiple GBs of songs in a few seconds, except not really). The workaround I found out is to run the sync command after copying.
"sync" is not a workaround, it is a right solution.
I see masterkorp decided to ask on the ML too. According to https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1285836#p1285836 , 'sync' doesn't fix it. Unless we have some kind of misunderstanding, this indeed is weird.
