The sd card just died in my precious and delicious PI. Its actually a model B version, so its not the not-that-long-ago-released version 2) The old card served me well enough: it took about an year to finish it off with regularly writing 1-2gb of data on it, deleting and doing it all over again. It was an 8 GB samsung class4 SD card. As a result I decided that its going to be good enough for another run: I've just grabbed another 8GB samsung class6 microSD as I have spare adapters @home and I'm looking at the new PI :).
My headless reinstall process was as follows:
- Installed: raspbian latest by dding the image on the card.
- set up
/etc/network/interfaceswith static lan ip
- set up
/home/pi/.ssh/authorized_keysto allow keybased login
- boot up the PI
- insert card
- connect network cable
- connect power cord (I should look into creating a proper power switch..)
- Logging in:
ssh pi@[ip] -i [keyfile] -p [port][1:1]
After you've logged in you will be greeted like this:
NOTICE: the software on this Raspberry Pi has not been fully configured. Please run '
As per the insctructions above:
- Let's configure a few things
- And update the PI
- I've added my preferred packages:
sudo apt-get installmc htop vnstat openvpn nginx php5-fpm build-essntial aiccu
- Configuration wasn't actually needed for openvpn & and the sixxs tunnel as I've backed those up carefully however I needed to start from scratch with php & nginx.
- last but not least I re-installed powerdns <3 as it serves as a recursor/cache for the lan..
Finally it took more to write this down than actually doing all that :). If you are the least bit interested in experimenting with stuff you should grab a PI as it can be really useful..
Have a nice day and a pie.
