In this section, you will learn how to download Phyllome OS and how to create a live medium that will allow you to boot it from a USB flash drive.
The Phyllome OS ISOs files are made available on GitHub.
As of now, only the Phyllome OS Desktop II edition is available as an ISO file. The II edition is tuned for Intel CPUs and Intel GPUs. It is also known as ldhi, for live, desktop, hypervisor, and intel.
If you intent to install Phyllome OS permanently on your computer, use a Fedora Server ISO instead, as it is not yet possible to install Phyllome OS from the live image. The steps below are made to be generic, and should be valid regardless of the ISO you use
As of now, there is no checksum available, and the release is not signed using GPG keys. Among other things, it means that there is no guarantee about the authenticity of the file or its integrity, whatsoever. Alternatively, a safer is to deploy Phyllome OS in a virtual machine or to deploy it directly on a host using this method
The following instructions may have to be adapted depending on the operating system that you are currently using.
This method uses the
dd command line tool.
The next command, which requires root privileges, assumes that the ISO file is available in the Downloads folder and that the target medium is called
sdz. You can identify the correct target device using the
lsblk command line tool. Modify the command according to your context.
Warning: This command will destroy any data on the target device
dd bs=4MB if=~/Downloads/phyllome-live_ldhi_v0.2.0-alpha_x86_64.iso of=/dev/sdz
Etcher is an open-source, cross platform tool for flashing images to a target medium. It is developed and made available by balena.

Pick the right version depending on your platform.
Follow the normal procedure to install an application on your computer.
An account with administrator rights will be needed.
Insert a blank flash drive on a free USB slot on your computer
Open Etcher. You will be greeted by the screen below. Click on Flash from file
Warning: clicking Flash will destroy any data on the target device
A prompt might appear, asking for your password or a confirmation
Congratulations, the USB flash drive is now ready to use!
