Raspberry Pi3 and learning Linux

Raspberry Pi3 and learning Linux

Postby XC-3730C » Sun Feb 25, 2018 5:07 am

After many years of modding Xbox's, I decided to get into Raspberry Pi 3, and have tried many different images. I want to deconstruct some images (.IMG files), and recreate my own, but I know that requires Linux experience, an I have none.

What is a good distro of Linux for guys like me that never dealt with it, but want to learn the ins and outs (including command lines)? Will it work as well as a VMWare virtual machine? Anyone here have experience with creating Raspberry Pi imaged?

Check on Youtube under a user called ETA. He's brilliant at Raspberry Pi and explains it quite well.

Yea, ETA prime talks about Raspberry Pi 3 quite a lot, but so am looking to learn Linux, so so can make my own Raspberry Pi 3 images, and learn to use Linux in general.

Popular distros like:
Ubuntu
Mint(basically ubuntu made even easier)
Manjaro(based on arch) <-- my favorite
↑these are beginner friendly but have a lot of stuff pre-installed
you might like "Q4OS", it's like ubuntu(based on debian) but has less stuff preinstalled
you should check out its distrowatch .com site

Every distro I've dealt with(a lot) works in virtual machines so don't worry!

The easiest to learn is going to be straight up vanilla Debian (user friendly)

pre-made distro's come with pre-installed software
Linux uses dependencies ( software needed for other software to run)

Dependencies can cause conflicts when installing other software, etc
Linux requires you to be decent on the command-line,
A little practice, you'll start understanding and remembering commands
Arch vanilla is another great one, just a bit dif.
Just my .02¢

I also recommend creating a 2.0/3.0 usb and using the F8 function to boot into a dif OS.
2.0 is alright for lightweight distro's such as stock.
ubuntu and mint suck- Good for a play if you only want to see it

As mentioned by^^^^ Ubuntu or Mint to start with then once you get the coding down move up to Linux Red Hat(best op to hake with). But do what works best for you.expirament and find what works best for you.and thats my 3 cents worth.Cheers and good luck! :)

Thanks for the suggestions, guys!

I am hoping those that also are into the Raspberry Pi can talk about it here, but I understand if not.

How is Linux on a PS2? How about Xbox? I thought about setting up Linux on my old school IBM NetVista PC I got recently, but it's older, and doesn't have a very large HDD, plus no SATA

Yea, they removed OtherOS after firmware 3.21 back in 2010, according to Wikipedia, and now we are up to 4.81. Oh well...
