Of course, if you use it you will see it.

I guess I see one potential issue - Rufus is not really stable for garuda images, and can potentially break the installation. I saw it plenty of times. There is actually a portable Etcher for windows, so probably you should use it instead

I tried the latest version of Rufus myself and did not face that issue personally.

I'd need a direct http (no s!) download link for it. It's over 100 mb large : /

Yea, thanks. Should be fixed within the next few hours when Fosshost syncs its mirror. A certain somebody deleted some active .iso files and broke it :smiley:
I fixed it, but like I said, we still need to wait on Fosshost.

Ok should be fixed now, although there's still some weird caching going on.

This is too big and too much gap :dizzy_face:

Yea I have no idea what's going on there.

It doesn't look that way on my system:

Edit: It does look broken on the non AppImage version, I wonder why :thinking:

I found some time to fix this small issue yesterday, the non-appimage version should now work correctly.

Pushed an update that auto gets the edition list every time the program is opened without having to manually update the list every time we add or remove an edition.

A post was split to a new topic: It is not clear to me which distro is Garuda Linux "Spotted Eagle" (210507)

Great project.

Few suggestions:

  1. Show the speed / current downloaded / total size
  2. Show the checksum if passed or not
  3. Dont rename the isos so i can download multiple versions (do some checking and overwrite the same versions if exists?)
  4. Update the rufus before launching? It has an update feature builtin anw.

Thank again
