Raspberry Pi Home Server – Step 3 : Installation of Moebius
All installation instructions are based on those from the official site, that you can find here. For many of you, You surely understand already all the process. In doubt, I gives the steps. I have done everything on Mac OS. And no need to keyboard and screen in the next steps and posts about this project.
So let's start with the preparation of the SD card on the computer, Raspberry Pi is not used at the moment :
- Download the latest version of the image here. At the time of the drafting of article the stable version is the 1.0.1.
- Unzip the file
tar - zxvf moebius.minimal.image.1.0.1.tar.gz
- Insert the card into the reader
- Type the command Mount to identify the device used by the system for our map.
- Need to eject the card but without clicking the eject icon. It can still be able to use the device but it is no longer visible
sudo diskutil unmount/dev/disk1s1
- We will write the image to Moebius on our SD card. For this we'll use the command DD and by replacing Disk1 by rdisk1
sudo dd bs = 1 M if=./moebius.minimal.image.1.0.1 of = / dev/rdisk1 (In Mac OS, replace 1 M by 1 m)
- After a few minutes, the image is ready ! The card can be ejected …
sudo diskutil eject/dev/rdisk1
- … and inserted into Raspberry Pi !So here it goes the first step is completed ! We have a system almost ready because it must still configure and update.
- Connect your Raspberry Pi on the network and with the power supply. Wait a few minutes before proceeding to the step 10.
- Login SSH to the machine (Home 192.168.1.25) with the user root. Password of user root is raspi.
- First thing to do, was to extend the primary partition at least the size of our SD card. For this, just choose the first option AutoResize then Continues and let the system. The operation takes place in two time, le second retaillant la partition mais n’empêche en rien de se connecter pour bidouiller 😉
- In the end after some time, our partition is ready. You can restart raspi-config to adjust certain parameters such as the time zone for example. Do not change the RAM/GPU distribution.Next update !
- To update the list of packages
- Download the update script RPI-update who will settle in /usr/bin
wget http://Goo.GL/1BOfJ o/usr/bin/rpi-update && chmod x/usr/bin/rpi-update
- You can now run the script RPI-update
apt - get install git-core rpi-update
- Don't step on reboot. Edit the file /boot/config.txt adding the following line at the beginning or end of the file
gpu_mem = 16
- Restart the Raspberry with the command reboot
And this is ! The result is a Raspberry ready ft, ultra light. The 28 M of RAM evidence occupied and 835 M of disk space !
In the next post the nitty-gritty will be able to start ! 🙂
