To learn more about using Plan9 on Raspberry Pi as a desktop computer, see computer.
To get started with a new device, download Raspbian Lite and burn it on a SD card. The default login credentials are pi/raspberry.
You can use ssh to input commands and remotely control the device, follow these steps to get started.
touch /Volumes/boot/ssh # Enable SSH
touch /Volumes/boot/wpa_supplicant.conf # Auto-connect to wifi
Input your wireless network details to enable the device to automatically connect to the network when available.
# nano /Volumes/boot/wpa_supplicant.conf
When ssh has been activated and the wifi details updated, the device should become discoverable.
ping raspberrypi.local # Find its IP address
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org # Use password "raspberry"
sudo raspi-config # Interface/SSH & Advanced/Expand FS
sudo nano /etc/hostname # Rename
sudo nano /etc/hosts # Rename
passwd # Change Password
Gadget mode allows to SSH into a Raspberry Pi Zero device via USB. Begin by enabling ssh, by adding /Volumes/boot/ssh to the SD Card. Activate gadget mode , allowing the device to be discovered and controlled via USB.
dtoverlay=dwc2 # Append to config.txt
modules-load=dwc2,g_ether # Append to cmdline.txt, or after rootwait
While traveling, I often use a Raspberry Pi workstation to save power. For more details on which software I use, see the unix cheatsheet.
