16 Installation & Customization Installation – Follow the Raspberry Pi Easy SD Card Setup for Debian http://elinux.org/RPi_Easy_SD_Card_Setup – Demo is also based Debian 6.0.5 Customization (Our steps may not fit all use cases. This setup allows GUI & SSH daemon to start automatically.) – Resize rootfs for SD card to use all space available +/- a few bytes – Fix ssh startup. sudo update-rc.d -f ssh defaults 20 – Fix TimeZone, Localization, Console Keyboard settings sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata, dpkg-reconfigure -p low locales, dpkg- reconfigure keyboard-configuration
17 Installation & Customization (cont) Customization – Modify R Pi to auto start the Desktop Change default from 2 5 in /etc/inittab – Enable Static IP addressing to improve management of embedded devices Add “hwaddress ether XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX” to /etc/network/interfaces file – Fix Package update sources.list to a region closer to you. Change default ”ftp.uk.". We changed to America's ”ftp.us." in /etc/apt/sources.list – To enable sound Add the following entry “snd_bcm2835” to end of file for /etc/modules
18 Installation/Customization (cont) Customization – Optimize SD card partitions in /etc/fstab add entry "/dev/mmcblk0p2 / auto rw,noatime,nodiratime,errors=remount-ro 0 1" between p1 & p3 mount points. – *noatime means "Don't record 'last accessed' time". For frequently accessed files, it can improve performance. – *nodiratime is the same for directories Uncomment swap partition 3 so you can use swap after next reboot. – Install Iceweasel, sudo apt-get install iceweasel Default browser was known to crash a lot for me. Others may find it fine.
