I have to get the SD card and whatever is required to program it
from Fedora 21 or 22, or buy one preprogrammed.
Pretty much any old SD card would do. I have this one:
By far the most popular OS for Rasperry Pi is Raspbian (a Debian
derivative). There is a lot more third party software available for
this. But there is also Pidora (a Fedora variant) which I have
successfully installed and tested.
I currently have an older Pi model B in service as my Bacula storage
server, with an external 4TB USB drive for online backups, plus a USB
enclosure that allows swapping drives to use for archival backups.
Works great. Pi's have lots of uses.
Well I can see that it has to be the small micro SD type care if it's
going to fit the socket and case that came with it.
But what I am really asking I guess is how do I connect the SD card to a
desktop computer to install Pidora or whatever? The only thing I see
that accepts the SD card is the Raspberry board.
