Thanks so much for the incredibly quick and detailed response!
I’m pretty computer savvy, though all of this is new to me so all your tips are quite appreciated and helpful!
I decided to keep it simple and etch your kolibri image onto a USB flash drive and was downloading modules fairly quickly, both through Rachel and Kolibri. Great work!
However, I get an error downloading Kolibri-index (which I presume is to access kolibri from within Rachel?):
command: rsync -Pavz --del rsync://dev.worldpossible.org/rachelmods/en-kolibri-index …/modules/
runtime: 0:29 failed
files_done: 0 out of 3 ( 0% )
data_done: 0 out of 32 ( 0% )
rsync: link_stat “/en-kolibri-index” (in rachelmods) failed: No such file or directory (2)
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1668) [Receiver=3.1.2]
What can I do for this?
As for the rest regarding enabling WiFi, I don’t have a keyboard/mouse/monitor, so I figured out how to connect to the Pi via ethernet and SSH (using user:pi and pw:Rachel, which I had to dig around for). I cant seem to get the hotspot service to start again though, so I have no idea if any of this worked - I can only access it when it is still connected with ethernet as you detailed in step #5.
Also, I enabled VNC within raspi-config, however it doesn’t show me anything when I log in from my laptop or android phone (which I now see is because there’s no desktop in this image).
How would I go about installing a desktop onto this? I’ll probably just use it for exploration purposes (I’ve never used a RaspberryPi) and eventually revert back to one of your images.
