The current stable release is 0.4 and can be downloaded from here (a zip archive).

Other released and pre-released versions of Guacamayo are found here (we follow the convention of using even numbers for stable releases and odd numbers for pre-release snapshots).

Ready-made images

Selection of ready-made images can be found in our download area, compressed with the xz utility. The images are of the following types:

Once you download an image, it needs to be written directly to the disk, e.g., using the dd command:
xzcat guacamayo-image{whatever}.hddimg.xz | dd of=/dev/{thediskdevice}
NB: these are complete disk images, so they need to be written to a device (e.g. /dev/sdh), not to a partition (e.g., not /dev/sdh1).

Source code repository

Developers interested in tracking Guacamayo development as it happens can clone our Git repository using the following command:

    git clone git://github.com/Guacamayo/meta-guacamayo.git
Or use the repository web interface.


Please report any issues you run into in the Issue Tracker, or join the Guacamayo developers in our IRC channel, #guacamayo at Freenode.
