Raspberry Pi Notes

Prepare SD Card

Following these notes:

  • Download 2012-10-28-wheezy-raspbian.zip (unzips automatically into an .img file)
  • Builtin SD drive on MacBookPro is /dev/disk3

  • I used 8Gb card
  • Install card into internal SD drive
  • Verify that df -h now shows /dev/disk3s1

  • Unmount with sudo diskutil unmount /dev/disk3s1

  • Copy image to SD card using sudo dd bs=1m if=/Users/david/Downloads/2012-10-28-wheezy-raspbian.img of=/dev/disk3 (takes a few minutes, use of ~/Downloads and rdisk in official guide does not work for me)

  • Eject SD card using sudo diskutil eject /dev/disk3


For power, an iOS charger with a normal-to-micro USB cable works. A kindle charger should also work (not yet tested).
