Download the latest version of NuTyX

The current release of NuTyX is named 8.2.1. The available ISO image can be used to install a base system without the need of internet. It is also used to carry out a minimum of configuration of your machine before the actual installation of NuTyX.

Both isos are +- 218 Mb.

All the available ISO images can be downloaded at: http://downloads.nutyx.org

Create a bootable USB key

If you are currently running GNU/linux on your machine:

[Important]As root

With the help of fdisk, find out where your usb key is located:

fdisk -l

Then by using the command dd, create a bootable key:

dd if=NuTyX_x86_64-8.2.1.iso of=/dev/sdX 

The sdX value is the one that you have previously found using fdisk.

If you are using Windows, it is easier to burn the ISO image onto a CD.
