Help with RaspberryPi Install.

Postby Avanesov » Mon Aug 26, 2013 19:07

I m using the "Sabayon_Linux_DAILY_armv6l_Raspberry_Pi_4GB.img.xz" download and cannot seem to find any instructions on how it is supposed to be installed. I have unpacked it into a .img and tried to use unetbootin or the LinuxLive installer but they both hang. Am I going about it wrong or am I just having an issue with those two programs? Just looking for some general guidance on weather or not I am working in the right direction.

FYI, I am currently working off a Windows8 system.

Open a console as 'root' and type the command:
Code: Select all
#cd <path-where-is-Sabayon_Linux_DAILY_armv6l_Raspberry_Pi_4GB.img.xz>
then find out what is the device of your flashcard with the command:
Code: Select all
#fdisk -l
example: /dev/sdd
Then enter the command:
Code: Select all
#dd if=Sabayon_Linux_DAILY_armv6l_Raspberry_Pi_4GB.img.xz of=/dev/sdd

After the boot on raspberry at login type:
Code: Select all
user: sabayon
password: sabayon
Code: Select all
superuser: root
password: root
