Raspberry Pi stuff

This is pretty much just a reminder to myself. Most people can ignore this post. If you’re troubleshooting your pi feel free to email me with your questions. This post is unclear and incomplete.

A few things have changed with the new version of Debian: Stretch

Ethernet names of changed. The old stuff like wlan0 and eth0 aren’t used. To find the new names of network devices use ifconfig or iwconfig

SSH is disabled by default. So when setting up a headless install put an empty file called ssh in the boot directory

For wireless headless install the wpa_supplicant.conf file (also put this in the boot dir) needs some changes to the beginning:

country=US
ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
update_config=1

network={

ssid=”mySSID1″
psk=”myPassword”
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
}

network={
ssid=”mySSID2″
psk=”myPassword”
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
}
