View Full Version : [ubuntu] obsolete osx "burn to usb stick" instructions?

June 3rd, 2012, 05:51 PM
in http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/create-a-usb-stick-on-mac-osx , step 3 is

hdiutil convert -format UDRW -o ~/path/to/target.img ~/path/to/ubuntu.iso

oddly, under OSX Snow Leopard, a diff between the target.img and ubuntu.iso file reveals no difference. if this step is not necessary, it should probably be removed. if this step is necessary, it would be nice to explain in the note under 3 what it still does.
