Hello,

I am trying to create a bootable USB thumb drive. I downloaded
the liveKDE64bit iso and followed the procedure outlined in the
SDB. I did:

Created 2 primary partitions on the drive, sdb1 - 10 Gb and sdb2 -
4 Gb, both ext4.

as root ran dd if=/mnt/iso/openSUSE-13.1-KDE-Live-x86_64.iso
of=/dev/sdb1 bs=4M


Where on the SDB tells you to do that? :-OO
Please post a link.

It will not work.

The official instructions are here:

https://en.opensuse.org/Live_USB_stick

And for the CLI, it is section 2. You DO NOT create any partition on
the USB stick. You simply run:

dd if=/path/to/downloaded.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=4M

Where 'X' in your case is 'b', never 'b1'.

And that's all.
