2020-04-10: move - I physically moved the machine to Stue.

2018-04-07: users - check which groups the 'pi' user is a member of

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ groups
pi adm dialout cdrom sudo audio video plugdev games users input netdev gpio i2c spi

and my user

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ groups tingo
tingo : tingo

ok, need to add a few groups.

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo usermod -a -G adm,dialout,cdrom,sudo,audio,video,plugdev,games,users,input,netdev,spi,i2c,gpio tingo


pi@raspberrypi:~ $ groups tingo
tingo : tingo adm dialout cdrom sudo audio video plugdev games users input netdev spi i2c gpio

2018-04-07: first poweron. Insert card, connect (wired) network, connect power.

2018-04-07: before start, I need to enable ssh on raspbian. From my c1 workstation, mount the boot partition

tingo@kg-core1$ sudo mount -t msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /media

create a file named "ssh" on the boot partition

tingo@kg-core1$ sudo touch /media/ssh


tingo@kg-core1$ ll /media/ss*
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  uarch 0 Apr  7 21:48 /media/ssh*


tingo@kg-core1$ sudo umount /media


2018-04-07: I used my FreeBSD workstation (c1) to write the newest Raspbian image (2018-03-13-raspbian-stretch-lite.img) to a 16 GB microSD card.

2018-03-14: on Pi Day, I bought a Pi3 model B+ (142943) from Digital Impuls for NOK 449.-
