Install Raspbian using Linux

Raspbian is a stripped down linux distribution that you can load on a raspberry PI. I have been using Raspberry PI’s for a number of systems in my house. The latest Raspberry PI 3 is Quad Core Broadcom BCM2837 64-bit ARMv8 processor (phew) which means it’s pretty fast. It also has WiFi built in which is HUGE (donald T) . Some uses include entertainment systems, web servers, dns servers, and phone pbx systems. So here you go:

  • Get an SD card.
  • Download latest Raspbian here.
  • Insert your SD card and get mount information.
  • Run df to find mount point and device name.
  • Unmount the SD card.
  • Format SD card in FAT 32.

  • Copy .img file to SD card using dd.
