v1.0.92 was retired by upstream because of a critical bug, which makes this package broken for now.
Hopefully upstream will release a new fixed version soon, otherwise I'm afraid it might be epoch time?

EDIT: Upstream just released a fixed v1.0.93 :)

Replying to zerophrase comment from 2023-03-18 04:56 (UTC)

Quoting 1st item of Ventoy FAQ:

It should be specially noted that, no matter USB drive or local disk, all the data will be lost after install Ventoy, please be very careful.

If I use this on a thumb drive does it format the entire disk? I have one with data partition, and a boot partition. I don't want to lose the latter.

@friday13: Only ventoy-bin existed when the Ventoy wiki article was last updated. The ventoy package builds from source and is technically still a WIP.

Hi @yochananmarqos, The documentation recommends the bin package, is there any difference between the two? apart from using git?

Hi folks, I've managed to get a (mostly) built-from-source version working Please check it out and feel free to provide some feedback.

@papa33: It's a warning, not an error. It has nothing to do with this package.

Error message with last version (1.0.81-1):

sudo ventoy -u /dev/sdc

Upgrade operation is safe, all the data in the 1st partition (iso files and other) will be unchanged!

The issue described in seems to have returned in commit 5a73d68. Due to the use of exec, polkit throws a "Refusing to render service to dead parents" error when ventoygui is run from the CLI with a launcher like dex, and when opened using dmenu/rofi, this error isn't even shown to the user. I've tested @q234rty's solution (removing the exec calls), and the desktop shortcut works as expected again. EDIT: Thanks for the quick fix!
