Linux : Armbian, Raspbian, Ubuntu…

Linux has quickly established itself as the preferred operating system in the field of connected objects. Lightweight, adaptable, resource and energy efficient, it is used in most projects, development cards (Raspberry Pi, Orange Pi, Banana Pi …) and mini PC (next to Windows 10).
In this section you will find tutorials and practical resources for Armbian, Raspbian and Ubuntu.

Armbian-config on Armbian, the equivalent of raspi-config for Raspbian

Armbian version 5.27 introduces a configuration tool called armbian-config. This is almost the equivalent of raspi-config on Raspbian.
