Problems with Torrent?
In case you have troubles using Torrent because some reason, you can download the official Gorgona Omega image from these links:
Please, try first with torrent and don't use these "direct download" links unless you really need it:
- Zynthian server have limits and if everybody is trying to download the SD images directly from there, it will get overloaded and forum, wiki and other Zynthian services will be slower.
- Torrent should download faster than direct download links because you are downloading from several sources at once.
