diva distro opensimulator on rpi2 [raspberrypi]

I personally recommend diva distro cause it is stable and has a userfriendly wifi interface.

install diva distro (based on opensimulator using ode physics):

or install only opensimulator 0.9(using bulletphysics):


opensimulator server on rpi2 [raspberrypi]

This tutorial is outdated. i made a new tutorial for rpi2 for diva distro 0.9 or for opensim 0.9:

if you have a pi1B maybe try this old tutorial instead:

what i did to create the preconfigured image:

a)from the tutorial below i did steps 0-8 and steps 16*) and 17*)
b)shrunk the image to 2.5 GB (based on https://fredfire1.wordpress.com/2014/07/01/shrunk-image-raspberry-piubuntu/)
c)zipped it to 1GB
d)uploaded it to dropbox

what you have to do to use my preconfigured image:

a) download the image, unzip it and burn it on a sd-card of at least 4 GB space
b) login and change the password for user pi with: passwd
c) change the ip address to yours
it is explained in step 7) in the tutorial below
(i recommend to use “only in your local network” so you have not to worry about security problems)
d) run sudo raspi-config and expand to full sd card, then reboot
e)now you are able to start opensim with:
cd ~/opensim-
mono OpenSim.exe

f)if your sim is running you can login with firestorm explained in step 9) in the tutorial

dropbox link to the image:

used passwords in the preconfigured image:
ssh login:
