I can manage using dd to copy the image to a flash drive; I've done that 
before. But I do have other uses for my available flash drives, although at 
present I could use it as a one-time fix. 

Also, it isn't so important to me to be on the cutting edge of everything. I 
just want to get my computer rebuilt, running and stable. And I have several 
stacks of brand-new, unused 100 CDs and 100 DVDs, but only a few flash 
drives. In any case, this is not so important, and I can manage these 

All I want is to track down the source of this issue, resolve it, then resize 
my root partition and change over to Devuan. And I can change to 64-bit 
later, as well, if that will work. My most pressing problem at the moment is 
why I am losing space on my root partition. Speaking of which: after a couple 
more hours (during most of which I have been offline, as I was attending to 
stuff in the real world), I am now down to 60.3 mb of free space. If you have 
followed these threads, I was at something like 165 mb a few hours ago, and 
200+ mb a day or so ago.
