Raspberry Pi Installation Instructions
« on: April 18, 2014, 09:53:32 PM »
Just wanted to post here that I've created a page on the Wiki outlining how to set up a Raspberry Pi for use with P-ROC. I tried to write it in normal English since I'm not a fluent Linux guy. Hopefully it's helpful for anyone else that goes down this path. This is how I did it, so it might not be the best way to do certain things, but it should work :)

Thanks, I know I tried it a long time ago and didn't get it to work, so a p-roc on Pi for dummies is great for me! I'll try it later on (I think in the summer) and let you know how it went.

I'm going to try to make a disk image available, too, but have to tidy this up a bit, then add the initial config screen back in. I have no idea how to do that, but it can't be that hard, so when I'm done I'll make available a ~9GB IMG file.

That would be great: saves others a lot of time of going through all the steps, so if you could do that, a big 'thank you very much!' from me.

When I click on this link, I just see a title and a blank page. I try to log in and it doesn't recognize me and doesn't give me an option to join. How can I view this tutorial? Thanks!

The wiki is unfortunately broken right now.  The data is still there; it's just not showing up properly.  If you click the 'view source' tab at the top of the page, at least you can get to the raw information.

Fixing the wiki depends on a manual upgrade.  Sorry I haven't gotten to it yet.
