    Do you unzip the Debian USB file?




      Apologies, if this seems like a very basic question. Are you supposed to unzip the Debian USB image that is available on IoT devkit website and then burn it to a usb stick? When I try to unzip it it produces an error halfway through. I'm not sure what is the correct way to do it.

          Yes, you should unzip it.

          It is 'bz2' zipped, so on linux, unix or Mac OS X you can use the 'bzip2' command to unzip it:

          bzip2 -d devkit-live-image-final.binblob.bz2


          This will give you a file name devkit-live-image-final.binblob, which you then copy to a USB Thumbdrive with the 'dd' command.


          I did this on my Apple Mac and it worked without any problems.
