  • Display interface (DSI)
  • Micro SD card slot
  • VideoCore IV 3D graphics core
I’m using Minibian Wheezy-18022015 from here

  • Kernel 3.18.7+ #755
  • 13 secs boot (on RPi 2)
  • 24 MB RAM used
  • 334 MB disk space used
  • Fit on 512MB SD Card
  • Optimized ext4 file system with swap disabled
  • Support for RPi B, RPi B+ and the new RPi 2
  • Targeted for embedded or server applications (NAS, Web server, electronic applications)
  • 100% full compatbile with officiale release
  • DHCP client enabled
  • SSHD enabled
  • root user enabled (default password: raspberry – please change it a.s.a.p.)
For storage, I’m using 4GB MicroSD Card (Visipro Class 6)
root@raspime:~# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/mmcblk0: 3997 MB, 3997171712 bytes
4 heads, 16 sectors/track, 121984 cylinders, total 7806976 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0004a452
        Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/mmcblk0p1              16       97727       48856    b  W95 FAT32
/dev/mmcblk0p2           97728     7806975     3854624   83  Linux
Oke, Next step we are going to “copying” Minibian image (Minibian.img) to Sdcard, please follow step bellow.
  • Download Minibian Wheezy-18022015 from here.
  • Get SD Formatter from here it’s available for Windows and Mac.
  • Get Win32DiskImager from here it’s only available for Windows user, foe Linux user you can use DD tools.
  • Install and then open SD Formatter to format your MicroSDCard, when you are done, go to the next step.
  • Install and then open Win32DiskImager then choose Minibian.img  for Image File and for Device choose your Micro SDCard Drive.
  • When you ready, press Write button and wait it till finish.
  • Done, plug that MicroSDCard to Raspi and boot it.
