Today I stumbled upon the fact that my KODI based media box (Raspberry Pi 4) is still using a dynamic IPv4 address. Hence I want to connect via ssh regularly, I had to set a static IP on LibreElec (former OpenELEC) which my KODI mediacenter is running on. To achieve that, I had to connect […]
Today I configured a new backup solution that required me to restrict root ssh access to a single IP for the root user.
Recently a friend of mine asked me, if it would be possible to get a media center or something like that running on his old flat screen TV, that wasn’t a SmartTV. He wanted a kind of SmartTv-like app system (Add-Ons). So I decided to install KODI Mediacenter on Raspberry Pi 2 B+ that I had […]
For a home automation project I have to setup a local DynDNS client on my Banana Pi running with Raspian. Here are the steps I’ve taken to run a DynDNS client under Raspbian (will work on other Debian based Linux distributions too): Install ddclient package: $>sudo apt-get install ddclient This command installs the package and starts the DynDNS […]
Arch Linux is a very clean and lightweight Linux distribution. With the following steps you can install it on a SD-Card to run it on a Raspberry Pi: Get the device name (dev-path) of the SD-Card to run the operating system (see Get a list of partitions or List, partitioning and format drives) $> sudo fdisk -l […]
Sometimes its necessary that your machine gets a static IP-address. For example if you want to run a server or a other service on that machine. On Debian based machines you can do this by: Edit /etc/network/interfaces (f.e.: with nano) auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.88.6 netmask 255.255.255.0 […]
The default password for the default user pi on a Raspbian operating system is raspberry. You should change it to a secure password on first connect via ssh. Therefore you can use: $> sudo passwd pi
To install Rasbian on a SD-Card you have to follow these Steps Format SD-Card Fat32 (f.e. with GParted http://gparted.org/) Download Raspbian (or any other operation system) from http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/ Extract the downloaded zip-file Find out what is the devicepath of your SD-Card (you can use the df-command or get a list of partitions via linux-list-of-partitions) Execute the […]
