A while ago, Adafruit released Occidentalis, a derivative of the Raspbian project tweaked for hardware hacking:
Adafruit <3 Raspberry Pi – especially how easy it is to hack circuits using the electronics breakout pins! But sadly, the latest official distro “July 15 Raspbian Wheezy” did not have many of the delicious hackables built in. That’s why we decided to roll our own distribution.
Today we’re announcing a new open source project which includes:
- A graphical Pi Finder application that will make it easy to find and configure a new Raspberry Pi on your network
- A new version of Occidentalis, built as a package repository you can use from a normal Raspbian install
- Additional configuration helpers for controlling basic system settings from a simple text file on your SD card
This is still an early beta, and there’s a lot of work to be done yet, but we’d love your feedback on where we’re at right now.
Interested? Head to GitHub and check out the README, which has detailed instructions, or jump right to the release page and grab an archive for your operating system of choice.
