Image recommendation

As basis for the GP3 installation we recommend an experimental OE 2.0, OE 2.2 or OE 2.5 image from Dream Multimedia. Of course GP3 can also be installed in Merlin or OoZoon images. Flash instructions can be found in this article.

Image preparation

Installation of Gemini Project 3

The Gemini Project can be installed in 3 different ways. Please use the corresponding explanation, depending on the used image generation.

Ambox attention.png There are two g3wizards, depending on the image generation. One for OE 1.6 / OE 2.0 and one for Dreambox OS based images (stable or unstable). Please use the correct version. If not, the package management system will not install the wizard.
