Hello. I apologise if this has been discussed. I can find no silver amongst the dross.
I have created my first live usb from the latest LXDE iso. The iso md5sum is correct.
I know how to get the md5sum of a live disk but cannot work out or find any procedure to get the md5sum of a live usb.
As a second best option I tried "mediacheck /dev/sdb." I get the message "Unable to find install image /dev/sdb" even when running the command while in the directory containing the iso.
The command "mediacheck --help" produced the same message. There is no man page for 'mediacheck'. I read parts of a long thread on mediacheck and livecd and early posts mentioned that mediacheck is defective.
Is there any way to check a live usb before using it? If so, how?
EDIT: It has just occurred to me that I could try creating an iso from the usb and comparing the md5sum of the second iso.
