    creating persistence USB get 'no such file or directory

    I'm trying to create a persistence USB.

    I follow the instructions on the Kali Linux website that tells you how to do it.

    I open up the terminal. type 'sudo su'. Then I type:

    end=7gb (enter)

    read start _ < <(du -bcm kali-linux-1.1.0a-amd64.iso | tail -1); echo $start (enter, and at this point I get: du: cannot access 'kali-linux-1.1.0a-amd64.iso)

    parted /dev/sdb mkpart primary $start $end

    How to I find out what I'm supposed to put after '-bcm'? I'm sure it's kali-linux-1.1.0a-amd64.iso. That's the iso file I have on my windows machine that I would have used to put on the USB.

    You have to be in the same map as the .iso file.

    In Windows, dont know. You could always download it again while running Kali from the stick.
    You will probably find it in /root/Downloads than. Use
    cd Downloads
    to get in there.

    I have kali Linux running off the usb stick.

    I want to create the usb persistence.

    I tried typing 'cd Downloads' in the kali Linux terminal but it comes back with:
    'root@kali:~# cd Downloads
    bash: cd Downloads: No such file or directory
    root@kali:~#

    You've probably figured this out by now. I am also pretty much a newbie and stupid in Linux environment.

    Here is a link using Windows to create the Kali USB Persistence. It seems to work for me. Hope it helps
