As a retired ‘NIX Systems Admin I still have to find out what makes things tick.
So I decided to build a Raspberry Pi 2 model B using a 32Gb Micro USB Card and the vanilla copy of Raspian Jessie 8 into a fully working DV4mini Console.
I used Putty with the DHCP provided IP address to run raspi-config expanding the file system and to change default localization settings.
Then it was on to installing x11vnc so I could work from my Windoze desktop using Tightvnc. Next it was getting the Edimax Wireless card online. From there I installed Mono 4.0 (Note: an 8GB Micro USB Card will run out of space while installing Mono 4.0) and finally the DV4Mini Console.
Since I created a series of crib sheets, I put a home-brew forum together as a central repository for my notes.
