It’s live. Took a bit of fucking around to get the WiFi dongle to work under Rasbian, I had to download a binary blob for it. But now it’s sitting there, connected to the stereo, happily playing Double J in its custom printed Muppetz.com case. Thanks Kowen for your 3D printing skills.
My Pi arrived yesterday. I plugged it in for 30 minutes while I baked a cake for Sarah’s birthday. Seems pretty neat, I’m impressed that the distribution I chose to test with (OpenELEC) detected the Wifi Dongle straight away and just worked with it.
The major issue at the moment is I don’t have a decently sized MicroSD card. I have a 2G one, which was fine for some basic testing. And it’s actually fine for OpenELEC as well, but it’s a GUI oriented thing and I don’t want that, I want something that’s basically a Linux Distro (i.e. Rasbian)
Will have to get it a decent SD Card today. And the case that my workmate 3D Printed for it should be arriving in the next day or two.
I’ll be crabbed off if I can’t get grsecurity running on it…
