QGIS on Raspberry Pi 2

QGIS on Raspberry Pi 2

Asking what is a raspberry pi? then go to 
http://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-2-model-b/

(This is work in progress)

Current QGIS 2.2 but working on updating to  QGIS 2.8.1
Call this testing...













Hardware:
Raspberry Pi
MicroSD Class 10 (16GB)

Operating System
raspuntu arm7 compiled
from [direct link] http://lucario.info/archive/raspuntu-tjc-2015-02-16.zip

This was based on this install guide (for windows with access to sd card writer)
http://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-get-ubuntu-desktop-on-the-raspberry-pi-2/

QGIS
http://www2.qgis.org/en/site/

see
http://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/116320/how-to-install-gdal-and-qgis-on-a-raspberry-pi
note QGIS is much faster on raspberry pi 2


Why is this so important?
This can be a very cheap way to get GIS into schools across the world.

Cost $35 raspberry pi
with keyboard,mouse
cables HDMI, Cat5 Ethernet and SD card. 

**Tested headless (no mouse or keyboard after install) using normal remote desktop on a laptop running windows 8.1 on a local network (gigabyte LAN)- remote desktop works fine with wifi (g/n)

Working on speeding up processing, load time...etc.
