The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B has the capability to run various Linux distributions, and in this article, we will discuss how to install three different ones – Ubuntu, Kali, and Parrot OS.
To install Ubuntu, ensure that you have a microSD card, the Raspberry Pi Imager software installed on a separate computer, and a Raspberry Pi. Using the Raspberry Pi Imager, choose the 64-bit version of Ubuntu Desktop, and follow the same process as installing any other operating system.
For Kali Linux, run Raspberry Pi Imager and select ‘Kali Linux’ from the list of operating systems. Choose the 64-bit version, write it to the microSD card, and move the card to the Raspberry Pi for boot up.
As for Parrot OS, first download the operating system onto your computer, and then use Raspberry Pi Imager to select the Parrot OS distro and write it to the microSD card. Once finished, move the card to the Raspberry Pi and boot up.
Installing different Linux distros on your Raspberry Pi is safe and does not void the warranty. It allows for different capabilities and functions, and also serves as an option for existing Linux users to use a distro that they are already familiar with.
In summary, the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B has the potential to run various Linux distributions, each offering its unique features. This can be achieved using the Raspberry Pi Imager software and is a safe and supported process.
