pimp image wont fit on 16GB SSD



  • The pimp image is 16.01GB, the average 16GB SDD comes out to about 15.83 GB......

    The partitions on the pimp image are only about 13.5GB, why is the image setup at 16.01? This makes it impossible to install without some wizardry (If you know how please let me know, i spent 5 hours last night trying to do the trick with "dd").....

    There are some other bits in the image as well. And actually, the average SSD is 16GB. There are a couple cheap brands, kingdian as an example, that are not. The difference is what we used to call marketing GB vs real GB... centered around someone in engineering used 1000 instead of 1024.. shrug.. hard for us to control. An easy work around is just buy a bigger unit, price difference for 32GB is not much more. Or just use an old HDD already have laying around.
