PocketCHIP: First Run!

PocketCHIP: First Run!

My suggested list of terminal commands for your brand new PocketCHIP. These do the following things:

  • Reset your password.
  • Give you root user access to update and install software.
  • Update your PocketCHIP's core operating system.
  • Make sure that your locale and time zone data is right.
  • Install SSH and shut off WiFi power saving to prevent timeouts.
  • Install Pocket Home (Marshmallow edition).
  • Install rsync for easier file copying. (Optional)
  • Install git to easily grab projects from GitHub. (Optional)

Note: Do not add the $ or # from each line before the command! $ denotes a command to be run by your default user, # denotes a command that requires root privileges.

$ passwd
$ sudo -i
# apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade
# apt-get install locales
