I'm trying to make a bootable installation USB drive. I've tried usb-creator-gtk, and it starts working only to fail with a segmentation fault, leaving a non-bootable drive. I've tried "unetbootin", and it makes a bootable drive that cannot even begin an installation successfully. (I can't tell what it's problem is, but the result is utterly unworkable; the installation process just hangs.)
This seems like something that should be pretty simple, and pretty easy. What am I doing wrong?
My 12.10 installation from which I'm trying to run usb-creator-gtk is up-to-date, and other than this it works fine. The USB stick is fine (and I've tried this with several different USB sticks with the same result).
