What you Need

You will need the following to get started with using your Lindenis V5 board:

  • Windows / Linux PC or MAC with a SD Card Reader connected to the Internet.
  • Power Supply (PSU) and a micro usb cable. Please make sure to use a PSU rated at +5V@2A.
  • MicroSD card (4GB or higher capacity) rated 'class 10' or better.

Download the image

Download the image from FTP server with user 'ftp' (password: lindeni).

Writing an image to the SD card

Writing the image to MicroSD Card by Etcher is recommended.

  • Using a computer with an MicroSD Card reader.
  • Visit and download and install the Etcher SD card image utility.
  • Run Etcher and select the image you downloaded.
  • Select the SD card drive. Note that the software may have already selected the right drive.
  • Finally, click Burn to transfer the image to the MicroSD Card. You'll see a progress bar that tells you how much is left to do. Once complete, the utility will automatically eject/unmount the SD card so it's safe to remove it from the computer.

Now that you have an operating system. You can slot your SD card into your SBC and connect the power. Then you will boot directly to the desktop environment.
