    Default Troubles with installing BT3 to a bootable SD card

    OK well ive just downloaded the usb version of BT3 and am trying to make my sd card bootable
    when i try to run ./bootinst.sh i get a permission denied error at line line 48
    whats weird is that im logged in as root
    if u cbf looking it up line 48 is
    ./boot/syslinux/lilo -S /dev/null -M $MBR ext
    im very new to linux so i hope the resolution will be easy to follow :P

    well, usb instructions are tucked away politely on the wiki:
    http://wiki.remote-exploit.org/index.php/Howto
    although nothing specific to an SD...

    and a quick search of this site (notice the "search" at the top of the page?) comes up with a few intersesting gems that you may have overlooked...

    http://forums.remote-exploit.org/sho...%2Fbootinst.sh
    for one.

    once you go through those... come back and tell us what was wrong and how you fixed it.

    There's a few files you'll need to make executable first - lilo, syslinux, etc - it's all in the forum

    You have to make sure the two copied folders boot and bt3 are in the root of the card that you are copying them to.
    also it's not the best option but if you can you can use the bootinst.bat in windows. It seems to work with out any problems that I have seen.
    Use the following for windows if needed"
    Navigate to and double click on the \boot\bootinst.bat (make sure you are on the thumbdrive before you run it !
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.

    I'm having the exact same problem as above.

    Code:
    Flushing filesystem buffers, this may take a while...
    Setting up MBR on /dev/sde...
    ./bootinst.sh: line 48: ./boot/syslinux/lilo: Permission denied

    It's the exact same solution as above also
