Please, add your questions to this FAQ. And of course, if you can add/improve an answer, do it! ;-)

Where can i buy a Zynthian Kit?

Currently you can buy the official Zynthian Kits in the Zynthian Shop.

How do I edit entries in the wiki?

You need to be able to login to the wiki with a username. Simply register...

I just wrote my 16/32/64 GB SD card with a Zynthian image, but from Zynthian's console i only see a part of SD's total space and i've no free space left in the partition. How can i make available all the space on my SD Card?

UPDATE: From 2016-12-23, the Gorgona SD image solved this problem. Latest SD images will auto-expand the partition on the first boot, so you shouldn't have this problem never more, but if you have it ...

After writing the zynthian image into the SD card, you have to "expand" the partition to fill all the available space. Follow these steps:

+ login into your zynthian box using ssh
+ execute "df" command to see the size of your partition and the available space
+ run "raspi-config" and select the first option to expand your partition
+ reboot your zynthian box
+ login again and execute "df" command to see size of your partition and the available space. You should see the difference ;-)

Important: If you don't expand your partition, you will have problems when updating zynthian software or library, as you will run out of space.
