Raspberry Pi home server

By | January 28, 2013



Bought this little device from rsonline UK, for about $60 with clear case including postage, took 2 weeks to get here.

Bought an Apacer Micro SD 32gb class 10 from PBtech for about $58, you can get it cheaper from pricespy but I couldn’t wait any longer.

I am a mac user so I used the command lines to load the OS image to the card, took about 10-15 mins

First time boot up with goes to the config screen and it didn’t output hdmi signal, so should use composite cable to config your pi correctly first.

There is an option in the config to expand the partition to use the full SD card capacity, cos after loading the image it only shows about 2gb space, this option allows to use the rest of 30gb.
