  • Raspberry Pi Linux LESSON 2: Formatting SD Card and Installing Operating System

    This lesson gives a tutorial on getting started with the Raspberry Pi. It shows how to properly format the SD card, how to download the operating system, install the operating system on the SD card, and then boot the Raspberry Pi. For these initial lessons we will focus on operating the Pi from the Linux command line. Our objective is to learn Linux, and control the Pi via Linux. In later lessons we will learn how to use the GUI interface.

    Details of the lesson are on our site at:

  • Seven Linux Distros

    Linux distro comparison of Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Manjaro, Slacko Puppy, Lubuntu, Zorin OS, and Debian Jessie with the Raspberry Pi Desktop!

    All distros were downloaded as an ISO image and written to USB media (for testing and/or full installation) using Etcher, which is available from: https://etcher.io/

    The different distros featured in this video can be obtained from the following links. Please note that all of the below are provided in good faith, and that testing and/or installing a new operating system should be done with care. Testing a distro from a USB drive should not delete files or otherwise damage your computer. However, actually installing a new operating system will replace your existing one unless you decide to dual boot, and this can cause issues . . .
