Hi All,

There is a fantastic article about installing Linux on the X5000. :-)

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.

Is this part true?
Now to download Linux on to the X5000, you will need a PC or a Linux machine to generate a disk image on to a USB flash drive which will act as your opening portal to the world of Linux.

I hope not. I have an X5000 coming soon, but will never have a PC. Does Raspberry Pi count as a Linux machine? I do have one of those.

Hi Spectre

Can you advise how to create a disk image on AmigaOS 4.1 and I will use this to update the blog post for others :)
