To install IIAB 8.0 onto Raspberry Pi OS, Ubuntu 20.04+, Linux Mint 20+ or Debian 11+, simply run this 1-line installer:
On a Raspberry Pi, WE RECOMMEND YOU INSTALL THE LATEST RASPBERRY PI OS (32-bit OR 64-bit), using their detailed instructions if necessary. WARNING: THE NOOBS OS IS *NOT* SUPPORTED, as its partitioning is very different. To attempt an IIAB install onto a non-supported Linux distribution (AT YOUR OWN RISK) see also the manual/legacy instructions.
An Ethernet cable is highly recommended during installation. This is not only more reliable, but also allows an internal IIAB hotspot to be set up without confusion. WARNING: IF YOU CONNECT YOUR IIAB'S INTERNAL WIFI TO THE INTERNET OVER 5 GHz, YOU'LL PREVENT OLDER LAPTOPS/PHONES/TABLETS (WHICH REQUIRE 2.4 GHz) FROM CONNECTING TO YOUR IIAB'S INTERNAL HOTSPOT. For AP+STA mode, set "wifi_up_down: True" in /etc/iiab/local_vars.yml (example).
Please contact us if you find issues, Thank You! Special Thanks to the countries + communities + volunteers working non-stop to bring about IIAB 8.0 !

Internet-in-a-Box (IIAB) 6.5 Release Notes: github.com/iiab/iiab/wiki/IIAB-6.5-Release-Notes To install IIAB 6.5 onto Raspbian Stretch, Ubuntu 18.04 or Debian 9: curl download.iiab.io/6.5/load.txt | sudo bash This includes ~12 server apps and typically completes within 2 hours. A faster 1-line installer is below, if you want just ~6 server apps: curl download.iiab.io/6.5/load-min.txt | sudo bash Conversely a much larger but far slower installation is possible, if you want to experiment with a full suite of ~20 server apps: curl download.iiab.io/6.5/load-big.txt | sudo bash An Ethernet cable is always HIGHLY RECOMMENDED during installation, as this is more reliable that Wi-Fi (and faster too!) Need live community support? Choose a filename containing "-vpn" at download.iiab.io/6.5 so OpenVPN and TeamViewer work out of the box. To install IIAB 6.5 on CENTOS, try the manual/full instructions here: github.com/iiab/iiab/wiki/IIAB-Installation#do-everything-from-scratch Thanks For Building Your Own Library To Serve One & All Special Thanks to the many countries + communities + volunteers who've worked non-stop doing this, to bring about IIAB 6.5 !
