Testing RPi2 – New release available soon!

I’m proud to announce that the a new RPi2 compatible version of MiniBian will be available very soon: i’m testing it today with good results and i have just to finish debug and packaging. This version will include new kernel for ARMv7 compatibility and i can confirm that speed of new RPi2 with MiniBian is significantly higher than older versions. Stay tuned, and thanx all for your support and feedback!

  1. This is awesome, will the new Minibian be backwards compatible with old Pi versions?

    Monitoring your RSS feed to try the new Minibian as soon as it drops. Throwing a donation your way 🙂

  2. Yes, new MiniBian version will be backward compatible with old RPi version.

  3. I used the Minibian version from 2015-02-18 and there were one issue:
    When you duplicate the SD Card, the eth0 device is missing in a new RPi. You then have eth1 and not eth0. But some how eth1 is not working right.
    I found a solution on the web:
    You have to change the line in file /lib/udev/rules.d/75-persistent-net-generator.rules and change line 20, “device name whitelist”, to this:
    # device name whitelist
    KERNEL!=”ath*|msh*|ra*|sta*|ctc*|lcs*|hsi*”, \
    And then delete the file /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
    I have no idea why this is different from standard Raspian.
    Have a nice day,

  4. You’re awesome. I’m failing to understand why minibian != raspbian in the first place. Starting with what you need and add what you want is the only sane design philosophy for me…


  5. I’m running minibian in rasp2 no problem
