as I am new to Openhab I have a general question in the beginning. What do you prefer related to installing Openhab:
- Install openhabianpi-image
- Install Raspbian or Debian-stretch and install Openhab through git
I am not sure if I won´t be able to get full functionality with openhabian since some tutorials say, “to get the full functionality install with git”
I assume, that all functionality may be configured through the configuration tool, or not?
Thank you and kind regards
If you are new to Linux: go with openHABian.
For openHABian: yes, most of the useful things can be done via included config tool:
If you already have some experience with Linux: go for Raspbian and Zulu Java.
Thank you i have some experience with linux. I just wondered why Raspbian offers more since the config tool ist also supported by openhabian.
For me there is only one reason: if openHABian has an error you need to wait for maintainers to fix it. With a plain Raspbian I can do it myself
Yeah ok, that might be a good reason if I would have that much experience. I think i will learn with openhabian and rebuild it someday when my knowledge has been improved thank you very much.
