    Creating presistent USB: Cant create persistence.conf

    Hello everyone,

    I'm just about to start using Kali but an problem have came up that I'll hope you can help me with.

    Made an live-usb with the official guide and everything works great.
    The problem is with adding unencrypted persistence.

    Fourth and last step:
    4. Create a mount point, mount the new partition there, and then create the configuration file to enable persistence. Finally, unmount the partition.
    mkdir -p /mnt/my_usb
    mount /dev/sdb3 /mnt/my_usb
    echo "/ union" > /mnt/my_usb/persistence.conf
    umount /dev/sdb3
    Everything in the guide works fine until
    echo "/ union" > /mnt/my_usb/persistence.conf
    Then I'll get
    bash: /mnt/my_usb/persistence.conf: Permission denied

    Also I'm quite new to Linux in general and struggling to understand what the command actually do.
    echo "/ union" > /mnt/my_usb/persistence.conf
    My interpretation is that the program union will create presistence.conf but google does not seem to have any reference to such a program.

    If that is the case, union is not installed and bash tells me that i can install it with:
    sudo apt-get install emboss
    ...and thats seems to be a package with over 150 programs to work with DNA and proteins.

    Any idea whats going on and how to solve this?

    Solved it.

    For future reference it was some ting with my privileges in Ubuntu so just boot the Kali stick and do it there instead.

    echo "/ union" > /mnt/my_usb/persistence.conf
    Still interested in what the "/ union" command does if anyone knows.
