How to Install DietPi on Your Raspberry Pi
If you need a resource-light operating system for your Raspberry Pi, then you should consider trying DietPi. This Debian-based alternative to the official Raspbian operating system is optimized to have the smallest footprint on your system resources as possible, making it a great option for older Raspberry Pis.
It offers a similar user experience to Raspbian and, as they’re both Debian-based systems, you can install software packages that should work across both platforms, meaning you can use your favorite software in Raspbian or DietPi.
DietPi can also be used to quickly install different software configurations, from media centers to web servers and more. If you’ve installed Raspbian before, then installing DietPi shouldn’t be too unfamiliar an experience. Here’s what you’ll need to do to install DietPi on any model of Raspberry Pi.
