For Windows Users

Fedora-liveusb-creator.png
  • Download the latest version of the Fedora LiveUSB Creator from http://fedorahosted.org/liveusb-creator and extract it.
  • Plug a blank target USB flash drive (or SD Card) into your computer (minimum 1-gigabyte).
  • Launch LiveUSB Creator.
  • Select Sugar on a Stick v2 Blueberry in the drop-down menu on the upper-right side to download the liveUSB disk image. Alternatively, download Blueberry here, then hit the Browse button and select the downloaded file.
  • Adjust the Persistent Storage slider. This enables you to save the child's work in Sugar onto the device.
  • Select your flash drive as the target and click the Create Live USB button.
  • Wait for the process to finish, then close the LiveUSB Creator program.
  • Stop your flash drive using the Safely Remove Hardware dialog and eject it.

For GNU/Linux Users

1-)Linux Users will use a slightly different approach than Windows Users to ensure maximum compatibility with different distributions. Please follow the instructions carefully to ensure your data is preserved.

If you are a Fedora User, run the following command:

yum install liveusb-creator

Then download soas-2-blueberry.iso and select it by using the Browse button. You can check to make sure that the .iso downloaded properly by comparing the sha1sum to the one here:[1](sha1sum)

sha1sum soas-2-blueberry.iso
8022b68433295f12fbfffa66bf49205851a6a1e0 
  • Launch LiveUSB Creator and follow the instructions above.

2-)If you use any other distribution, download the image-writer tool from here and the live image from here.

This solution will not create a persistent storage overlay

  • Open a terminal and become root, either by using su or sudo.
  • Enter the following command: ./image-writer soas-2-blueberry.iso
  • WARNING: If you proceed here, your flash drive will be wiped!
  • The script will output a device name; confirm that it matches with your flash drive.
  • You will be notified once the process has finished.

3-)zyx-liveinstaller:[2]

4-)Unsupported instructions for creating a key with persistent storage for Blueberry: [3] and on other distributions are available here:[4]

For Mac OS X Users

The procedure for Mac OS X users is similar to the one for Linux users. Verify that you have an Intel processor, and not a PowerPC (PPC) G3, G4, or G5 processor Apple Macintosh. Mac users should be aware that they may be able to prepare their flash drive on a Mac, but depending on the generation of the hardware used, they may need to use another computer to test whether the prepared flash drive works.

  • Download the image-writer tool for Macs from here: http://download.sugarlabs.org/soas/releases/image-writer-mac
  • Insert a flash drive. WARNING: your flash drive will be wiped in the next step!
  • Execute the following command in Terminal: cd Downloads; python image-writer-mac soas-2-blueberry.iso
  • Proceed as stated in the instructions for Linux Users.

Boot Helper

If your machine doesn't support booting from USB devices, then download the soas-2-boot.iso and burn it to a CD. ImgBurn is a free Windows application to do so, in case your current computer does not come with such a software.

  • Use the Windows Explorer to name your USB flash drive FEDORA (from the Properties dialog for your device), as otherwise, it won't be recognized by the boot-helper CD.
  • Put both the boot-helper CD and the USB flash drive in your computer and let it boot from the CD.
