Preparing my Chikiticluster in Frankfurt to my presentation

I am excited that I will give a poster presentation about my experiences with HPC at #ISC16 I was selected to do it as part of the Women HPC 🙂


Setup the SD Master Card:

First I downloaded again the jessie iso from the Raspbian page 2016-05-27 and then copy the image to the SD 32 GB card

Before inserting the SD on your laptop, run df -h, then insert the card and check how is the device called, in this case we have: /dev/mmcblk0p1

Now you can umount the file, please notice the number 1 only refers to partition 1, then we can run umount /dev/mmcblk0*

Find the path where you Downloaded the image and then, unzip it by doing unzip [] -d [path_to_unzip] and then make sure you are allowd to run the following command:

dd bs=4M if=2016-05-27-raspbian-jessie.img of=/dev/mmcblk0
958+1 records in
958+1 records out
4019191808 bytes (4.0 GB) copied, 425.597 s, 9.4 MB/s
  • It takes considerable minutes, so you must wait and be patient 🙂

Edit the config.txt as follows:

… Then, the configuration of the Raspberry PI follows as I wrote in my previous post.

I do not want to miss the opportunity to give a special Thanks to GNOME friends: Tobi and Moira for the excellent hospitality I received, for the moral and material support they gave me to achieve my dreams :3
