SITCOM SFX Door Trigger

by Azola on Tue Oct 08, 2013 11:47 pm

I got all my parts came in today and I cant wait to start on this project tomorrow, but some part is confusing me about installing Adafruit's Occidentalis OS installed. It said "Like any tweaked distro, this distribution is not designed for beginners! We designed this specifically for what we think hardware hackers want, and may not suit your needs. Please check out raspberrypi.org/downloads for official distributions." Which distribution is not for beginners? The occidentals 2.0 or the one in the website? So since im a beginner I should use the official dsitributions? But when I went to raspberrypi.org/downloads it has many types to download which one do I dl? ty guys

Since you want to hook sensors and other hardware up to your Pi, you should stick with occidentalis 0.2.

Pay no attention to those Cassandras with their "not for beginners" rant :wink:
