Επιτέλους! (at last! in greek) After a month and a half of waiting, I received my Raspberry Pi! Now I am going to show you how to install Raspbian Wheezy Linux into your Raspberry pi! To complete this task I used Lubuntu Linux.
1. Get an SD card
The SD card will be your hard drive! It must be at least 2Gb in size. Raspberry organisation recommends 4Gb.
2. Download Raspbian Wheezy
You can download Raspbian Wheezy Linux from here. and unzip it to a directory.
3. Insert your SD card and get mount information
When you insert your SD card the system asks you whether you want to mount it or not. Mount it, so you can explore its contents from the file explorer.
4. Run df to find mount point and device name
Run df command and find your device in /dev directory.For me it was /dev/mmcblk0. The output is goint to appear as the following:
[email protected]:~$ df Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/loop0 25948028 13156440 11473496 54% / udev 1018844 4 1018840 1% /dev tmpfs 410444 872 409572 1% /run none 5120 0 5120 0% /run/lock /dev/sda6 42074200 35229872 6844328 84% /host none 1026108 0 1026108 0% /run/shm <strong>/dev/mmcblk0 1946896 4 1946892 1% /medi/mysdcard</strong>
5. Unmount the SD card
6. Format SD card in FAT 32
sudo mkdosfs -F 32 -v /dev/mmcblk0
7. Copy .img file to SD card using dd
sudo dd bs=1M if="/home/linux/2013-02-09-wheezy-raspbian.img" of=/dev/mmcblk0
When procedure finishes you are ready! Unplug your SD card from your computer and insert it into your Raspberry Pi. You can find more installation information in Raspberry Pi Quick Start Guide
