Description (last modified by )
I wrote small Python script, which downloads current raw image from http://haiku-files.org/raw, unzips it, writes to selected device and makes it bootable.
I rarely write anything in Python, so i bet it could be written better. Still, it works OK here (except for now it doesn't - nightly builds are broken at the moment, so nothing new to download :).
Hope it can be useful for others too. I tried it only on Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala), but it probably will run ok on any *NIX platform with Python, "unzip", "fdisk" and "dd" installed. It should be called with sudo(so it can use fdisk and dd). Can be called without any arguments to show help/instructions how to use it.
