That was fast, our first review! Adafruit introduces customized Debian distro for Raspberry Pi (review). Tim writes –
This morning I woke up to some exciting news!, Well, depending on your definition of exciting, really. Adafruit have introduced a new Raspberry Pi linux image, based on the work done by the Raspbian team. What makes it unique is really what’s been enabled by default:
- Updated to Hexxeh firmware
- 4 Gig SD image (will not fit in 2 G cards!)
- I2C and hardware SPI support
- I2C/SPI modules initialized on boot
- sshd on boot
- ssh keygen on first boot
- runs ahavi daemon (Bonjour client) and is called raspberrypi.local
- Realtek RTL8188CUS wifi support
- One wire support on GPIO #4 when loaded
As usual, I had to get into it and look around and get dirty footprints everywhere
