All excited to set up my Raspberry Pi in the lab today. I found an Acer monitor-keyboard-mouse set not in used in the lab and I set them up for Raspberry Pi.

Here is a reference link in how to get started.

I tried the 8Gb SD card but it couldn’t connect to the internet. Have to reformat it. Then i plug in the 16Gb SD card, it prompted me with the initial configuration page.

Configuration

Configuration

1. Expand Filesystem – ensure that all of the SD card storage is available to the OS
locales
2. [x]Change User Password
3. [x]Enable Boot to Desktop
4. Internationalisation Options
4.1 Change Locale en_SG.UTF-8 UTF-8
4.2 Change Timezone Asia-Singapore
4.3 Change Keyboard Layout Generic 105-key (Intl) PC – English (US) – The default for the keyboard layout – Compose key: Right Control – Yes
5. Enable Camera – Enable
6. Add to Rastrack – YuSiang NTU
7. [x]Overclock
8. Advanced options
8.2 Hostname – raspberrypiNTU
8.4 SSH – Enable

Finish and reboot. Got severe problem here! :/
My SD card may be corrupted. Sigh.

Note:
1. The Compose Key (Multi_key) causes the computer to interpret the next few keystrokes as a combination in order to produce a character not found on the keyboard.

2. By default the combination Control+Alt+Backspace does nothing. If you want it can be used to terminate the X server. – yes

3. can come back anytime using the command “raspi-config”

Troubleshoot:
Error message:
perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
LANGUAGE = (unset),
LC_ALL = (unset),
LC_CTYPE = “UTF-8”,
LANG = “en_GB.UTF-8”
are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale (“C”).
locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory

This link may help to solve the above problem. But I have bigger problems now:

I guess I have to rewrite the img to both the SD cards and redo everything again. :O
