I spent some time today adapting the Ubuntu local installer to work for Raspbian x86 desktop. This is the process that should work to install it.
- Install Raspbian x86 desktop
- set your locale and exit raspi-config
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade -y
- download raspbian_x86_local_12_03_2019.zip
- extract the zip to /var/tmp
- open a terminal and run
sudo python installer.py
- When the installation is done reboot
rachel is available locally at 127.0.0.1 or http://www.rachel.com and anyone on the same network can access it at the ip address assigned to it by the router.
I don’t think adding dhcp as part of an automated installer for PC is something that’s going to be easy. I have tried before without success. For rachel-pi you can try editing /etc/dnsmasq/dnsmasq.conf and adding a range at the end for the eth0 interface and see what happens. Currently it will look like this
You can try adding the following and see what happens
you will have to reboot and you may have to run
sudo systemctl daemon-reload as well. I will be looking at this again soon. The IP address does show on this because the ethernet interface is named “eth0” so the Ubuntu installation likely doesn’t show the IP address because the ethernet interface is not named “eth0” on that installation so the code will have to be changed to match. Let me know how it goes and I can change things if there’s an issue. Hope it works.
