@AnthGood I’d like to just chip in on @Hooverdan’s and @GeoffA’s instructions here:
For the downloads we, as you mention, have a raw.zx file and on the downloads page we given linux instructions to burn it to a system disk. But note that those instructions include an unzipping element.
I’m not sure if BalanaEtcher does this automatically. But it is required that the image burned to the proposed sdcard is not the compressed one you down load, but the multi-GB result of uncompromising the download first. From the downloads page we have:
Image Test: sha256sum -c Rockstor-Leap15.3-RaspberryPi4.aarch64-4.1.0-0.raw.xz.sha256
Transfer to (sdX): xzcat Rockstor-Leap15.3-RaspberryPi4.aarch64-4.1.0-0.raw.xz | dd bs=4M of=/dev/sdX iflag=fullblock conv=notrunc status=progress
And there the linux command first un xz’ed the image then burns it to the sdcard.
Just wanted to clarify that bit. Also it would be good to know if BalanaEtcher does this automatically as we could then add this to that download section if that is a common program to do this in the ‘other’ OS’s.
Cheers. And apologies if I’m just adding noise here.
