First time configuration of my Raspberry Pi

The first time you startup your Raspberry Pi with the Wheezy image on the SD-Card you are automatically guided to the Raspberry Setup menu.

In case you want to return to the menu at a later stage you can access the menu do the following.

boot up your Raspberry Pi

Logon with user: pi (standard)

Password: raspberry (standard)

enter the following commands on the commandline:

sudo su

raspi-config

Logon on and Rasp config

 

then you arrive in the menu below

Raspi Config

I take the following steps:

  1. update
  2. expand_rootfs
  3. ssh [enable]
  4. change_locale [us-UTF8]
  5. change_time-zone [GMT+1]

When you’re done select finish

reboot
