I think I made an error yesterday: I tried the CD again and noticed it was loading the musl version -- whatever that is......
that kind of entered my mind that is why I gave you that link to try and avoid that one, it is "Welcome to the home of musl, a new standard library to power a new generation of Linux-based devices. musl is lightweight, fast, simple, free ..."

so, i downloaded
Code:
void-live-x86_64-20170220-cinnamon.iso
( and checked the SHA256SUM -- like I should have done, yesterday )

and burned a new CD. I also switched to the 1080 RGB monitor--- basics, y'know

after that the image loaded and showed a Cinnamon Desktop. I was able to connect the WiFi, however: no "INSTALL" option appears

where do y'all have that hidden ? the target disk is UNFORMATED: No partition table.

one of the issues i'm facing is the person i'm trying to help is an ON|OFF person. She'll turn her phone on and plug in a cable but beyond that -- she just quits. with that in mind I'm not sure where this will end.
to install it switch tty's
cltr + alt + F(x) then log in

here is the instructions

Before you get too far into Installing Void Linux, I went back and doubled checked, because I've been in Slack for a while now and Void works but only on the app end to access them - I use it to copy movies into a video player app.
here is a ifuse mount iPhone script that works/worked for me too a while back. as this libs and ios keeps getting changed so yeah ....

with you needing to get into your Phone via a file manager you need to get to the other side so you can get into that DC(something something) directory on the system side of the iPhone.
Code:
#!/bin/sh
#
# mount-iphone.sh
# This script attempts to mount or unmount the first connected ipod/iphone.
# Usage: ./mount-iphone.sh [mount | umount | echo_serial]
# It should be dash-friendly
#
# Written by Mohamed Ahmed, Dec 2010
#
# Refactored and extended by David Emerson, Feb 2012
#
# You can configure send_msg to use either a console echo, or notify-send.
# notify-send is part of the debian package, libnotify-bin
# The apple pictures in /usr/share/pixmaps are part of the gnome-desktop-data package
#
# uncomment the following if you want to see the mount command used:
# show_mount_cmd=1

# you can uncomment this line to see all the commands sh executes:
# set -x

show_msg ()
{
  # notify-send -t 4000 -u normal "mount-iphone" "$1" -i "/usr/share/pixmaps/apple-$2.png"
  echo "$1" >&2
}

get_device_ids ()
{
  # get the Apple vendor id (idVendor) from lsusb
  idVendor=$(lsusb -v 2>/dev/null | awk '/idVendor.*Apple/{print $2; exit}')
  [ -z "$idVendor" ] && { show_msg "Cannot find any Apple device" "red"; exit 1; }
  # get the device serial number (iSerial)
  iSerial=$(lsusb -v -d $idVendor: 2>/dev/null | awk '/iSerial/{print $3; exit}')
  [ -z "$iSerial" ] && { show_msg "Cannot find serial number of Apple device $idVendor" "red"; exit 1; }
}

is_mounted ()
{
  gvfs-mount -l | grep -i "mount.*$1" >/dev/null
}

mount_iphone ()
{
  [ -z $show_mount_cmd ] || echo gvfs-mount afc://$1/ >&2
  if gvfs-mount afc://$1/; then
    show_msg "mounted iphone with serial $1" "green"
  else
    show_msg "iphone mount failed" "red"
    exit 1
  fi
}

unmount_iphone ()
{
  ## now gvfs unmount the device
  [ -z $show_mount_cmd ] || echo gvfs-mount -u afc://$1/ >&2
  if gvfs-mount -u afc://$1/; then
    show_msg "unmounted iphone with serial $1" "red"
  else
    show_msg "iphone umount failed" "red"
    exit 1
  fi
}

case $1 in
  mount)
    get_device_ids
    is_mounted && { show_msg "$iSerial is already mounted" 'green'; exit; }
    mount_iphone $iSerial
    ;;
  umount|unmount)
    get_device_ids
    is_mounted || { show_msg "$iSerial is not mounted" 'red'; exit; }
    unmount_iphone $iSerial
    ;;
  echo_serial)
    get_device_ids
    echo $iSerial
    ;;
  '')
    get_device_ids
    is_mounted && show_msg "$iSerial is mounted" 'green' || show_msg "$iSerial is not mounted" 'red'
    ;;
  *)
    echo "Usage: $0 [mount | umount | echo_serial]"
    exit 1
    ;;
esac

exit 0
you can give that a try too - I am not sure/do not remember everything on how to get it to mount - I just remebered I had it stored on dropbox then went and found it.

I ran it and it states iPhone is mounted because the file manager automounts my iPhone.
Code:
userx%voider ⚡ ~ ⚡> ./mount-iphone.sh mount
This tool has been deprecated, use 'gio mount' instead.
See 'gio help mount' for more info.

1e24efc9b7e101bdd546c859d7f7ae073739a978 is already mounted
that is what I am getting when I run it. it might work for you too.

you might have to tweak it as I have not looked into that deprecated warning message before posting this.

let me go back into Slackware and see whats up with this now.

in Slack
Code:
afc://1e24efc9b7e101bdd546c859d7f7ae073739a978/DCIM/100APPLE
where the photos are.
Code:
userx%slackwhere ⚡ ~ ⚡> ./mount-iphone.sh umount
gvfs-mount -u afc://1e24efc9b7e101bdd546c859d7f7ae073739a978/
unmounted iphone with serial 1e24efc9b7e101bdd546c859d7f7ae073739a978
userx%slackwhere ⚡ ~ ⚡>

might be as I see it you have to get on the system side of the iPhone and in slack with ios 10.3.2 that is all I am getting in slack whereas in Void all I am getting is the other side that gets one to the installed apps. before I upgraded my iOS I have a vague memory of being able to get in with both slack and void on both sides. so if you have a lesser version iOS you might be ok with either one. But don't quote me on that
