wiki:Raspberry Pi Setup

Version 4 (modified by Hugo, 4 years ago) (diff)


To set up the Raspberry Pi for this system, do the following:

  • Burn the latest raspbian image onto an SD card
  • Boot up a Raspberry Pi B+ with the SD card in it and proper peripherals connected (monitor, mouse, keyboard, ethernet)
  • Check out the software repository
    • Make a directory "~/work/"
    • Within the Work directory, run the following command:
    • svn co
  • Make sure the directory smbus2 is included in your software directory.
  • Configure the Raspberry Pi settings to enable SSH and I2C
  • Find and note the IP of the Raspberry Pi.
  • If the IP is lost or the pi moves to a new IP address, it can be found elsehow, but within the EDF it should be easy enough to keep the pi on the same IP address.
