Re: RP 3 or Zero W - which one is enough for my project?

" but camera should be able to take clear pictures in low light conditions."

Re: config.txt file

You have no permsission as user pi to write to system files, for obvious reasons, to prevent accidental damage to the system.

To get access you can elevate your level so admin level with the sudo command temporarely

Perhaps Minix may come to the Pi 2 or better 3.

Currently Minix is ported to the Beagleboard, ARM V8 required, which is also in the Pi.

If I understand the FLIRC specs it behaves as a HID device after programming it. This means you assign keycodes to IR remote buttons. Have you tried something simple: program a key IR remote key for example as 'A', plug in the FLIRC in the USB port and see if the A character appears on the commandli...
