Its signature can be verified by downloading the file.

The script can be started from an already installed NuTyX or from another distribution.

It must be executed from the root account.

All details informations about the script are now found here.

This script is widely used in many tutorials of NuTyX:
logo scriptinstall-nutyx The installation of NuTyX is done following these steps:

    sudo bash
  • Download the script and the signature
  • Check the signature
    md5sum -c install-nutyx.md5sum
  • Mount the destination partition (here /dev/sda2 for example)
    mkdir -p /mnt/hd
    mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/hd
  • Install the base NuTyX
    sh install-nutyx
  • Once the installation is done, you can re-enter into the freshly installed NuTyX via the command:
    sh install-nutyx -ec

Create a bootable USB key

If you are currently running GNU/linux on your machine:

[Important]As root

With the help of fdisk, find out where your USB key is located:

fdisk -l

Then, by using the command dd, create a bootable key:

dd if=NuTyX_x86_64-11.3.iso of=/dev/sdX status=progress

The sdX value is the one that you have previously found using fdisk.

If you are using Windows, it is easier to burn the ISO image onto a CD.
