The AlmaLinux Foundation, which produces the community-owned and governed CentOS alternative AlmaLinux, has announced support for the Raspberry Pi.

In a statement, the Foundation said the most recent Raspberry Pi had a sizeable presence in the education sector for teaching programming and computing.

Support for AlmaLinux Raspberry Pi 5 has been contributed by Koichiro Iwao, an engineer who works at Cybertrust Japan.

“Here in Japan, the Raspberry Pi community is vibrant,” said Iwao aka @metalefty on GitHub. “The incredible hardware improvements that the Raspberry Pi 5 brings over the Raspberry Pi 4, along with the increasing urgency with which the community was requesting this support, galvanised my commitment to building Raspberry Pi 5 support for AlmaLinux OS.”

The statement said Iwao had built on existing knowledge and been supported by his employer. He had taken the initiative to gather information and suggestions from the community at large and worked with enthusiasts and experts in the field to build these images.

Cybertrust Japan has been a platinum sponsor member of the AlmaLinux OS Foundation since 2023.

“This kind of community-focused support from our sponsors helps us meet the needs of our community that don't also have the immediate backing of a named volunteer,” said benny Vasquez, chair of the AlmaLinux OS Foundation.

“The coupling of AlmaLinux OS and Raspberry Pi5 is a win-win for all.”

With this release, AlmaLinux supports the following architectures in the Raspberry Pi ecosystem:

  • Raspberry Pi 5
  • Raspberry Pi 4 Model B
  • Raspberry Pi 400
  • Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+
  • Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+

AlmaLinux Raspberry images can be downloaded from here.
