Help with RaspberryPi Install.

Post by 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
or

Code: Select all

superuser: root
password: root
Ciao
