Some days ago I downloaded Raspbian for Robots, installed it and started to play with it. But my brick didn’t work. Faulty brickpi? No, all was fine after inserting the old and trusted 2014 image…
It took me two days but now I found it: there is a post hidden somewhere in the howtow section, that I have to disable IR com.
I mean, if it is mandatory, please mention it in the “Beta testers wanted” post! Don’t hide it at a place that I only visit by chance.
For ME, RfR seems not to be a good idea. There is too many stuff stuffed into it. I would like to keep the footprint small, so my plan in the moment is to download the raspian lite image and git-get the brickpi setup onto it. All I want is a ssh connection and a shell. No fancy X and all that graphics stuff. But, again, that is only MY opinion, I think for school and play the RfR may be a nice playground.
Now my question is: If I start with raspian lite, git the brickpi stuff - is there anything I need to do afterwards? Or should it work more or less out of the box?
(Just to say: brickpi is sheer fun anyway… )
