Download Voyage Linux

If you’re looking for all the flexibility and choice that Linux offers, then Voyage Linux can provide you with the platform you need.

This is a standard install of Voyage Linux using the voyage.update script that comes with the software.

It is based on Debian and so includes apt-get which allows you to easily install any other packages you might need.

For full details of the image, please check the readme file (see below).

For the official Voyage Linux release, please go to

Note: If you are upgrading from Voyage 0.4.1 on the ALIX 2 or ALIX 3, you will need to adjust the BIOS settings for this image to boot. The MGMFT workaround option will need to be turned off. Please contact us if you need help doing this.

Devices supported by these Voyage Linux images


Get it installed for you

We’ll install your software of choice for free when you buy one of our standalone servers or a rack mount server (including a Compact Flash or SD card).

You can also add one to any CF or SD card purchase for only $10.

Just select the operating system you want from the product options, and your order will arrive with the image pre-installed on the CF card, so you can just plug it in and go.


Do it yourself

You can write these images to a Compact Flash or SD card yourself, using dd (BSD/Linux) or Physdiskwrite (Windows).

If you don’t have them already, you’ll need a CF or SD card and a CF/SD card reader (or a CF to IDE adapter).

Note: All of the above images were created and tested on SanDisk cards, unless otherwise specified.

A note on image sizes

For best results, use the same CF card size

These images have been built on particular size Compact Flash cards.

Flashing an image onto a CF card of the same size will generally give you the best results, making the most of the available space and ensuring that the image will boot.

If you use a CF card that is smaller than the image, it will most likely refuse to boot.

If you use a CF card that is larger than the image size, you will end up with inaccessible space (unless you know how to repartition the card).

There’s no harm in using a larger CF card if that’s all you can get your hands on. You just might have some wasted space.

Voyage gives you access to space for extra files

Although the Voyage Linux image file is 2GB in size, the operating system files take up less than 150MB.

Voyage Linux allows you to use this leftover space for storing additional files.

Note: If you buy a server or CF card from us with Voyage Linux pre-installed, we can install it onto any size CF card for you, giving you access to even more storage space.

Other software

There are lots of great open-source operating systems that you can use on the APU, ALIX, net5501, net6501 and fitPC’s.

We’ve listed a selection of this amazingly useful software to give you even more options.

We’re not the experts

We supply these files purely for your convenience and can’t make any promises about their suitability for your project.

We can’t provide technical support for these images, because we’re not experts in these operating systems, and don’t want to pretend that we are.

If you’re unsure, please get technical advice from a suitably qualified expert before proceeding.
