The emteria.OS is released in the form of multiple separate packages, which have to be combined on the storage of the target device (e.g. SD card for a Raspberry Pi). For your convenience, we also provide a graphical installer for emteria.OS, which can be executed on your PC or laptop and performs all required steps automatically.
Attention: do not download this program directly to your target device, but use your PC or laptop instead to prepare the storage!

As mentioned above, emteria.OS consists of multiple separate packages, which are automatically downloaded and installed to your SD card or the device’s internal memory. The size of those packages can vary depending on the device and emteria.OS version. The installer will use the full data storage and partition it accordingly. Here is an example of approximate partition sizes created by emteria.OS 0.5.7 on an 8 GB SD card for Raspberry Pi 3 (these values may change in future releases):
|boot||64 MB||Chosen to be as small as reasonably possible|
|system||2.1 GB||System data and reserved space of about 1 GB each|
|oem||0.6 GB||Space for pre-installed business extensions|
|data||5.2 GB||Automatically sized partition to fill the remaining space|
