UPDATE: Occidentalis v0.2 – Adafruit’s Raspberry Pi Educational Linux Distro

Adafruit 388

Today we updated Occidentalis v0.2 – Adafruit’s Raspberry Pi Educational Linux Distro. This is our second distro,  Occidentalis v0.2. Rubus occidentalis is the black raspberry.  It is derived from Raspbian Wheezy August 16

We have made a few key changes to make it more hardware-hacker friendly!

Version 0.2 updates (new!)

  • Truncated image – only 2.6G now to fit on any 4G card
  • raspi-config notice retained on boot
  • Removed persistant wlan0 entry
  • Password-change reminder on login
  • Added RTC and lm-sensors kernel module
  • Included kernel modules for: DS1307, AD626 I2C digipots, HMC6352, BMP085, ADS1015
  • New! Adafruit’s PWM/Servo kernel module for easy PWM/Servo control on GPIO#18

Version 0.1 updates (still included)

Please keep in mind, we are not full time linux distro maintainers – we will try to fix any bugs we find but this distro is not for beginners or people who are new to linux! NOTE: Be sure to check the MD5/SHA checksum before uncompressing/burning to your SD – it’s a big file and you can have Pi instability if a few bits are wrong!

Ok, enough jibber-jabber, go download it!
