@Sam - I’m not complaining about the 1st-boot installer where network gets configured. That is necessary. Just wish it worked easier with a remote-only system. Hooking up a keyboard or mouse is a huge hassle. Generally, I find it easiest to setup a DHCP reservation for the NIC being used to avoid having to deal with the network interface stuff.
A tool seems to be the ‘go-to’ method to move an image file to an SD card when dd does it easily with a tiny bit of knowledge that is useful for many other reasons. I would find it helpful if there was a tiny mention that dd could be used to place the image on the SD. It has been months since I pulled the image down.
Download - OSMC says:
You can also download disk images.
is a little vague. Would be helpful to mention that ‘dd’ or any other imaging tool could be used with the image files rather than using installer.
@somebodywhoisntme - I don’t know you, but assume you can use a web search. Google found this pg: How To Create Disk Image on Mac OS X With dd Command - nixCraft
I never claimed to be a Linux genius.
Sam is a saint in my book for dealing with people like me and others always wanting an fool-proof method to accomplish anything.
