Hi,

Why unetbootin is removed from the Debian repositories?

https://packages.qa.debian.org/u/unetbootin.html

And what is viable replacement for it?

Thanks. I found the deb repository for it but I do like to have option without spyware "Anonymously report errors and usage statistics to balena.io". I hope we will get viable replacement that can be installed right from the Debian repositories.

Code: Select all
# cp example.iso /dev/sdX ; sync

Is that so difficult that you need a GUI?

Nope! That is viable replacement.
