Need some claryfication, is it trixie or bookworm?

Also bookworm was recently released and trixie is the fresh testing branch, so I wouldn’t wonder when you run into problems.

Trixie. At least that’s what the file indicates: DietPi_RPi-ARMv8-Trixie.img It was a top download link from a quick google search. (listed under the subcategories)

I downloaded the image August 14 and have tried this install process twice since then. The 14th and the 18th.

I will download Bookworm off the front page link and see if the problem still exists.


Debian Trixi is the upcoming Debian release that is quite early Alpha as it will be release somewhere in summer 2025 earliest :smiley:

Pls use Bookworm from our download page and not from Google search :wink:

Yea, I realized my mistake when Jappe asked for clarification. :blush: The bookworm download worked like a charm.
