I noticed over one month ago that Mathematica is supproting Raspberry Pi (rpi). But What I haven't noticed is that the rpi version of Mathematica is a preview of version 10.0. Otherwise I could have tried the whole thing much earlier.

I don't have a rpi, neither motivation to get one. Nevertheless, it is easy to use an emulator -- qemu -- to emulate the hardware of rpi from a x86 pc. And here is how:

First follow the instructions here

Then resize the sd, to have more space (I resized to 8GB myself)

Finally install Mathematica.

It's very annoying that qemu can only run rpi at 640x480. I managed to get it to 800x600 by modifying xorg.conf following this instructions:

But higher than 800x600 is not yet luck.
