How to handler the raspberry pi image


Every time I have downloaded the raspberry pi 2 or 3 images I struggle manipulating it. I have tried to open it in a virtual machine but to no avail. What flavor of Linux is it built on and what is the file extension of the downloads from the docs page.

Thank you!


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Chandler,

The build of our images is based on Raspbian. Our images do not have extensions, and work without them, the extensions are just added for convention. See the post here:
