Raspberry Pi Setup

Written by Peter Davies on .

Initial Setup

  1. Connect keyboard, network and HDMI
  2. Power on the device
  3. Configure SSH to start at boot by typing the following command raspi-config
  4. SSH may complain whilst starting about not being able to load the correct SSH keys, search online and it will explain to recreate the SSH keys:

Finally login using PuTTY and update raspi-config and any packages:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

For reference this took approx. 1 hour to complete.
Other notes: setup network to be static if you have issues connecting.
