QGIS on Raspberry Pi 2

QGIS on Raspberry Pi 2

Asking what is a raspberry pi? then go to 

(This is work in progress)

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

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)


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.
