Raspberry Pi B 512MB image

Postby bostock249@gmail.com » Sat Apr 30, 2016 9:03 am

Hello, thought I`d share my own image of DV4mini for the old Raspberry Pi B(+)

Backup your SD card first.

Fully English language - no German
VNC is installed for headless mode
Mono4 complete runtime
Based on Raspbian Jessie
Fits on a 4GB card with ease
All current updates applied.
640x480 resolution (can be changed) - ideal for the Pi LCD screen (though I havent tested this as I don`t have one)

You will see two scripts on the desktop

One is autostartdv4mini.sh - which selects (by adding or removing #) which version you want to start on bootup. If you don`t want it to start by itself, then just put a # in front of all the commands in the autostartdv4mini.sh script. Use leafpad which is included for editing.

Likewise for autostartvnc.sh

Remember if you comment all the lines in the VNC script, you will lose VNC access, so you will have to connect a monitor/keyboard etc or SSH (see elsewhere) into the pi to put it right.

Start your pi with the dv4mini installed, once first boot is completed, enter your particulars, then it will detect the dongle.

If you get "searching for DV4mini" or similar, please make sure you have put your particulars in.

This is only for the Raspberry Pi 1 B or B+

Hope somebody finds it of use.

Use Win32 Disk imager (as you normally would for pi images), extract this zip file, and write the image to a 4GB card (or bigger)

This is a duplicate thread that I thought had vanished. (It had!)

Can an admin please delete?

Thanks

This may be a duplicate thread but I am happy I found it because this .img is the only one I have been able to find anywhere that works on my Pi3B.
So thanks for having it out there, I've spent nearly my whole day trying to find one that works.
I did a search to see if I could find the "other" thread but couldn't.
BTW this is my first comment as a n00b with D4mini, D-Star and Raspberry Pi.

I have now found the duplication listed above so here is the link to the updated thread. I have subsequently successfully installed the june 16 version on my Pi 3B.

**UPDATED** [June 06-16] [Image] Raspberry Pi ZERO / B / B+ 2 Ready to use image with VNC

I`m glad it`s working for you.

I have tried the image on a 3B and confirm it does seem to work.

I didn`t expect it to as this mono4 runtime was incompatible I was lead to believe. I didn`t have a pi 3B at the time to confirm.

I have now got a 3B so that will be included too!

Thank-you for your feedback :)
