How to install Brynux

BrynuxBrynux is a free Linux Operating System (Fedora Linux Spin) created specifically for business, graphic design and New Zealand users. Download for free and have a play.

Requirements

To create Brynux install media you'll need:

  • At least an 8GB USB stick or a blank DVD and DVD Writer

Download

If the above doesn't work, try an older more stable version:
64-bit Brynux 24 ISO - 1.6 GB
(Most modern PCs and post 2011 Macs)
Or this even older version that people have been using since 2014 without any issues:
I've found the most compatible version with laptops and desktop that are old is brynux-24-x86_64.iso

Applications

Install Process

Option 1: Burn to DVD

Download the latest i686 or x86_64 ISO and burn Brynux to a DVD so you can install it on your computer.

Option 2: Make Live USB Stick from within Fedora or Centos

  1. Install the required packages by opening a terminal, and type "sudo dnf install livecd-tools qemu-kvm kernel-headers -y"
  2. If you'd like to test the ISO before installing it to a USB stick just run this command in a terminal: "qemu-kvm -m 2000 -vga vmware -cdrom brynux-30-x86_64.iso"
  3. Plug in USB and see what it's drive letter is by typing this command "sudo df -h". In the example below mine is /dev/sdb1
  4. Unmount the USB by typing "umount /dev/sdb1
  5. Then run this command to write the ISO to USB: "sudo livecd-iso-to-disk --delete-home --unencrypted-home --home-size-mb 2048 --overlay-size-mb 2048 --label BRYNUX-OS --reset-mbr --format --efi brynux-30-x86_64.iso /dev/sdb1"
  6. For older systems that don't support EFI boot, type: "sudo livecd-iso-to-disk --delete-home --unencrypted-home --home-size-mb 2048 --overlay-size-mb 2048 --label BRYNUX-OS --reset-mbr --format --msdos brynux-30-x86_64.iso /dev/sdb1"

Option 3: Make Live USB Stick from within Windows, OSX or other Linux

  1. Download UNetbootin.
  2. Open and load the Brynux ISO next to Diskimage. See full instructions here.
