  • Thanks jmcconnell, I love this tutorial and have been living in it for the last two days.

    I am a complete beginner and have had to suplement my info from Google as you suggested.

    Since ‘ALARM RULES’ I would like to share the following updates:

    Set host name + timezone

    sudo nano /etc/hostname (change host name)

    sudo ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Australia/Brisbane /etc/localtime (Example to set timezone)

    Set Locale

    sudo nano /etc/locale.gen (Add locale)

    sudo locale-gen (update locale)

    sudo nano /etc/locale.conf (edit locale file)

    sudo reboot

    Set Memory Split

    sudo nano /boot/config.txt (add following to file to get 50/50 split on a 256Mb chip)


No public wish lists :(
