How to extract Piaware disk img file to SD card with Linux

Cant seem to find a command or program to accomplish that. My desktop is Win but no SD reader. My Laptop has the SD Card reader but Im running Linux Mint.

Any Ideas how I can get the piaware-sd-card-2.1-3.img to the SD Card?

My SD Card device is /dev/mmcblk0p1

i’m using osx - kinda that way it should work:

sudo dd if=/PATH_TO_YOUR_IMAGE_FILE/piaware-sd-card-2.1-3.img of=/dev/mmcblk0p1 bs=4m

Write it to the full device not the first partition. (i.e. /dev/mmcblk0 not /dev/mmcblk0p1)

Thanks, its up and running just fine and connected to Flightaware perfectly. Now to relearn how to add stuff later, just happy its up now

perfect :slight_smile:

My really tough question is I wonder how it knew it was me, because all I did was install the image and when the image was ran it logged me in and everything without me doing a thing I didn’t even add my FlightAware login or nothing.

If you have used this RPi before to feed FlightAware then I assume FA associates your account with this RPi’s MAC address.
