Raspberry Pi 3 with CentOS-7

Postby belgeadmin » 2017/05/12 14:42:10

I have just installed CentOS arm based image on my raspi 3 and its exactly perfect.
Im using it as a kickstart server on my network but you can try whatever you want i guess.
Download adress:
http://mirror.centos.org/altarch/7/isos ... 611.tar.xz

Is there anyone else tried raspi 3 with another usage?

I'm actually running now with fc25 with lxde, neat :)

a good idea would be to use CentOS7 and turn it into a cheap router with the Pi3 PoE Gigabit hat

or the Pi zero w into an access point

I'm much more used to using yocto with ARM processors (and it works really well). Simply cross compile and it'll spit out a tarball (just like the link) that then gets written to the persistent storage (given the tarball entries start with ./ as in the link). You can manipulate the output using recipes (manipulate the output, the input or even the compilation and testing stages). I think it's (currently) the best way for professional IoT devices, also it can package RPM/IPK and I think DEB!

I haven't installed yet a centos 7 on the pi so I don't know if the same packages from the x86_64 architecture match the same packages on arm (between 32 and 64 bit they usually do)

20170526_UNO.rpms.txt
rpm list
(3.7 KiB) Downloaded 172 times


this is the rpm list from my CentOS7 router. then you need to configure dhcpd (if you need it) and named (if you need it) and iptables

you can install with

yum install `cat /this/file.txt`

so to install what you're missing. if you start from 7.3 minimal you should be fine

I'd like to try this out. Could someone provide a few brief instructions on setting up an img file (using the file from the link above) to write onto a microsd card for the RPi 3?

Thanks.

I use Win32DiskImager for sd card image installation.
