Ubuntu – Can’t convert iso to img on mac


I followed the instructions here and I got a dmg instead. This is what I entered:

cd Desktop
hdiutil convert ubuntu-12.10-desktop-amd64.iso -format UDRW -o ubuntu-12.10-desktop-amd64.img

Then it gave me a dmg. What should I do?

From that very same documentation:

Note: OS X tends to put the .dmg ending on the output file automatically.

It seems it's not a problem. Just continue to the next steps, and when prompted for the file name, be sure to provide the correct one, with the .dmg extension. That's all.
