Raspberry Pi

I have a couple of Raspberry Pis around. My only successful, and lasting, project was setting up RetroPie for emulating older games.

Setup Notes #

A lot of this is redundant if you use Raspberry Pi Imager as you can press ⌘⇧ + x to change passwords and add wifi details before writing a new image.

Add Wi-Fi Credentials #

Create a file called wpa_supplicant.conf at the root and add the following:

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
country=<Country Code>


Enable SSH #

  • Add a file called ssh to the root of the image after writing
  • SSH in once booted with ssh pi@raspberrypi.local
  • Password is raspberry

Change SSH Password #

Run passwd then choose a new password
