To my future self: this is how you can ‘burn’ an ISO file into a flashdrive, so that it’s bootable!
hdiutil convert -format UDRW -o destination.img kali-linux-2017.2-amd64.iso
diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk2 1 "Free Space" "unused" "100%"
sudo dd if=destination.img.dmg of=/dev/disk2 bs=1m
diskutil eject /dev/disk2
Find the device path:
Format as FAT32:
sudo diskutil eraseDisk FAT32 NAME MBRFormat /dev/disk2
Thanks Apple, for having FAT32 as an option in the Disk Utility app. It’s so much nicer than having to remember a CLI command.</sarcasm>
– Launch Regedit
– HKEY_USERS\Default\Control Panel\Keyboard
– Set InitialKeyboardIndicators to Zero
Now, next time you boot… your beautiful small keyboard won’t have Num Lock enabled by default, AND you should be able to enter your password without further issues.
I’ve recently hit an annoying issue: if you share your mac with, say, your brother… you’ll figure out that Spotify will only work in one of the two accounts.
It doesn’t really matter if you actually have two seats or not. It won’t run at all.
Solution?. As ever… bash and…
sudo chmod -R 755 Spotify.app/
