Sir Lagz keeps posting great tutorials that we use when we work on our Linux distro. Wanted to make sure you all know where we get some of these great ideas!
From Sir Lagz:
I recently had to resize a Raspbian Server Edition image into a 1 gigabyte image. As I didn’t actually have a 1 gigabyte SD card to use as a template, I generated my own by resizing the original 2 gigabyte image.
This was done on another computer, but this can also be done on the Pi itself, and you can even flash the resulting image to an SD card if you have a USB SD Card reader on the Pi.
Also, most commands will need to be run as root, or use sudo to run the commands…..
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit, be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Have you tried the new “Adafruit Raspberry Pi Educational Linux Distro” ?
