Reisntsalling Guiplug on sheeva plug
« on: 03 October 2011, 01:03:03 pm »

Hello People,

I'm completely new at this, and a little lost at the commands and everything in general.
Bear in mind i'm new to linux as well, bascaily i'm stupid :)

I have downloaded the NEWIT-Gui-Plug 16gb-15jul11-V2.6-Sheevaplug.img.gz

i have an SD card, which i have wiped. i'm working from a Linux laptop, i'm unable to use the console port.

so far i've removed the old image download the new one and i can't seem to find the correct commands to unpack and install the img.gz above on linux onto the SD card. so i'm a little lost. can anyone help or am i doing the wrong things >.< sorry to be a pain.

Best Regards

Joshua Shipman

Joshua,

Try the code below to decompress and write in a single step but remember to change 'sdb' for your output device.

Code: [Select]
gzip -cdv thecompressedimage.img.gz | dd of=/dev/sdb bs=1M
