Installing Quirky 7.0.3+There is a new experimental installer application, named 'installquirky.x86'
Download 'installquirky.x86', and right-click on it to change its permissions to "executable", or do it in a terminal. Then, either click on it to execute it, or do it from a terminal:
# chmod 755 installquirky.x86Actually, given the experimental nature of the Quirky Installer, I recommend running from a terminal, so as to see any error message that might come onto the console.
You don't have to download anything else. The Installer will offer installation choices, and download the appropriate file, and install it.
Some release notes8GB image
There is a ready-to-go image for a 8GB USB-stick, that is not handled (yet) by the installer, named 'april-7.0.3-8gb.img.xz'. If you have a 8GB (or greater) stick available, that is a simple alternative way to install and evaluate Quirky.
Just download that file and write it to the USB-stick, as per "Method D" instructions here:
"x86" is the i686 32-bit build of Quirky, and does not support UEFI booting.

There is of course the usual waivure of all responsibility. I provide tools and documentation in good faith, however you use them entirely at your own risk.
