Fbinst is a really good USB Flash Disk formatting tool.However there are no deb or rpm packages for Fbinst.So you have to compile it from the source to use it in Linux.http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/agnipulse/~4/dyL4hkD1nBQ

Compiling on Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit works, but the compiled fbinst asserts:
$ ./fbinst -h

fbinst: /home/username/grub_util_scripts/src/fbinst/fbinst.c:3299: main: Assertion `sizeof (time_t) == 4' failed.

Compiling a 32-bit version at least doesn't assert (you need to install multilib on 64-bit first before you can compile 32-bit programs):
export CFLAGS=-m32

export CXXFLAGS=-m32



bash grubutil_compile

A compiled version is attached (like always, use at your own risk).

I was wondering about the output of fbinst -l

 

it is something like(this on my system)

 

 

(hd0): 976773168 (466g)
(hd1): 7821312 (4g) *
(hd2): 7821312 (4g) *

 

Does it correspond accordingly on LInux?

 


(hd0) ----> /dev/sda
(hd1) ----> /dev/sdb
(hd2) ----> /dev/sdc
