Help

First of all, be sure you are running the latest version of Finnix. Releases older than the current version are generally not supported.

Known issues

For current known issues, see the current release notes and the issue tracker on GitHub.

If the console goes blank halfway through boot and the system has an Nvidia graphics card, pass the "nomodeset" kernel boot option to prevent the nouveau driver from trying to manage the resolution.

Bugs and feature requests

To report a bug or suggest a new feature, please use the issue tracker on GitHub.

Finnix discussion

For general Finnix discussion, please use the Finnix Discord server.
