From Nearline Storage
- Use dcfldd to install the disk image, it gives progress details:
sudo dcfldd if=dlk.pidora.img of=/dev/sde sizeprobe=if bs=4M
- There will be a long pause at the end while dcfldd writes out buffered data to the SD card
- Use gparted to expand the root partition to fill the SD card and skip the resize step during installation.
sudo gparted /dev/sde
