Hello mara, how do I actually install the image on an SD-Card?
I first tried using rufus but it didn’t work. I noticed the README.TXT next to the download afterwards and tried following the steps. I’ve tried using both

dd if=slarm64-current--xfce-rootfs--build-.img of=/dev/sdb1 bs=1M
and
xzcat slarm64-current-
-xfce-rootfs--build-.img.xz > /dev/sdb1

The PC I was using listed the SD-Card as “sdb1” instead of “mmcblk0” if that makes any difference. Any further help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

hello otte,

To write to the SDcard you need the following:
xzcat slarm64-current-aarch64-base-rootfs-21Sep19-4.4.194-rock_pi_4-build-20190921.img.xz > /dev/sdb
or
xzcat slarm64-current-aarch64-xfce-rootfs-21Sep19-4.4.194-rock_pi_4-build-20190921.img.xz > /dev/sdb

First of all, thanks for the quick reply.
Installation works now but I’ve immediately run into trouble.
First of all I need to restart the TV for it to actually show an image. Then the Xfce Terminal doesn’t properly open, as it instantly closes on startup every time. The webbrowser also doesn’t seem to work. No browser is set as default and the installed Firefox doesn’t start at all.
At this point I’ve already aborted trying it out but I thought I’d let you know.

Thank you, Xfce Terminal has this, but Firefox worked properly, I’ll check.
