Description

The main focus is to have a small, updated and stable distribution that is fully compatible with official Raspbian “wheezy” image, without GUI and unneeded tools.
So this image is perfect for embedded projects, or wherever you need to use all RPi resources for your specific tasks.
The main advantage is that MINIBIAN has a very small footprint, boots in some seconds and uses just few of precious RPi RAM.
Unlike other similar projects, MINIBIAN has not been obtained purging unneeded packages from original image, neither recompiling the source code: it’s just a customized Raspbian installation obtained from the same repository used for official RPi wheezy image.
So kernel and binary files are exactely the same you will find on standard image, with the difference that MINIBIAN fit on 512Mb SD Card, is fastest, and updated more often.

    Great image, but I needed wifi for use with the Model A which has no ethernet. This often a catch22 problem, so I added wifi support, and preconfigured it to connect to an open wifi network, you can find the ready to use image here on sourceforge - search for "minibianwifi"

    Love the fact that it's fully based on the raspbian just stripped down to the minimum. This means we can get always the most up to date packages, updates, commands and improvements while enabling a fully customized incremental approach of just adding what you need in each image. Fast to download and deploy on new sd. I now start all my cards with this distro and install what I need in top.

    After trying different images, we found that this image is just what we need for our RPi-based servers. Thank you for your work!
