Re: Debian on RP 3

Hi Amey,

Teaching teachers GNU/Linux is not what we have in mind. I think kids are smart
and they will figure out them selves how thing works.

Yes, we dont want to have HDMI thing involved; as I raised the point earlier, it would
boost up the setup cost. I think there are HDMI-VGA converter available (not the cables)
which costs around 600 Rupees which should solve the need.

So basic setup would
  1. LIME2 [4500 ] +
  2. HDMI-VGA converter [700] +
  3. 16' screen [4000] +
  4. Keyboard [400]+
  5. mouse [250] +
  6. Power Adapter [250] +
  7. USB Memory Sticks [500] +
  8. LIME Casing [550]
  9. WiFi-Dongle (Optional) [500]
Total would be around = 11650.

Hello All,

Friend of mine and I would like to donate some of our effort/money/time providing computers at a primary school in a village in Goa.


Noting that it's a primary school, so on Raspbian OS should be ok.
Assuming that those kids aint having syllabus to do some heavy C, C++, Python,Java programming on x86_64 bit processor architecture.  ^_^
Do gather basic requirements for example language localization requirement.
Also confirm that the computer teacher knows Linux OS & he/she can diagnose very basic issues in Linux OS.

We were thinking of having Raspberry Pi -3 with Input/Output devices. But software/OS, we were thinking of having Gnu/Linux.

You are just going to donate Raspberry Pi 3 device or along with screens?
If you are just going to donate the devices, then buying HDMI screens going to be an expensive deal to the school.  :-)

Raspberry Pi is at throw away price but other components are expensive for example HDMI monitor.


Has any one tried Debian on RP3? Is Hamara Gnu/Linux endorsed by Debian?

Let me know if anyone has tried out this setup in the school.
