I got my hands into a Raspberry Pi, so I thought it was time to start playing with it. My goal is to show the first steps to get your Pi running, so basically installing the OS in the SD card.
I am going to install Raspbian, which you can get from Raspberry Pi’s download page. I used the torrent option, which downloaded a zip file. After getting the zip file, extract it’s contents and keep it handy for later.
To verify which devices are mounted run:
1 df -h
Now insert your SD card in your computer and run the command again. The device that wasn’t there is your SD card. The output looks something like this:
1 /dev/sdb1 3.7G 4.0K 3.7G 1% /media/adrian/Pi
Now that we know the device, we need to unmount it:
1 umount /dev/sdb1
