In the last post of this series, I described how to prepare your VirtualBox environment. In today’s post, I’ll show you how to install the Ubuntu server with the help of the netboot.xyz iPXE .iso.

So my first Raspberry Pi 3 Model B 32GB just arrived which is part of a “Canakit” on Amazon which can be found here. Below is a general setup and config step by step guide to get you started with your own Pi. I may follow up this post with the progress of my pie-in-the-sky project to build a miniature hyperloop “pod” and track, controlled by a stand-alone Raspberry Pi. But before I get into powering my Pi with an electrified rail, we need to get the Pi setup and configured.
sudo chmod u+s /bin/ping
With that command I can now ping out and about.
tvservice -d edid edidparser edid
and then seeing that I do have a DMT monitor (group 2) and an hdmi mode 82, I edited /boot/config.txt with the new editor named Geany. I started geany with sudo so I could edit the protected file with the command:
Which brings up the Geany file editor running as sudo, and then I could open and browse to the File System > /boot/ directory where I could edit the file config.txt to include the following lines:
After a restart my monitor’s resolution is correct.
Linux raspberrypi 4.4.9-v7+ #884 SMP Fri May 6 17:28:59 BST 2016 armv7l GNU/Linux
So it is time to run an update. It’s so nice that the distro is debian-based and the familiar apt package management system is installed. No dist-upgrade necessary.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
I’ll be following up soon with more findings and initial configuration, but for now I’ve got enough to be able to branch out and explore the world of Raspberry Pi!
