As a follow up to a previous post about Raspberry Pi setups, I recently found out that Ubuntu has an official server distribution for Raspberry Pi. Here are my steps to setting up a Raspberry Pi for development and testing. Ubuntu Server Image Download the official Ubuntu Raspberry Pi image Write the disk image to an SD card using balenaEtcher or similar Insert the SD card into the Raspberry Pi and boot the device Connect to the Device Find your PC's IP:
I like to automate things and anacron`/cron` are some of my go-to tools for getting the job done. But, recently I was having issues with anacron and couldn't for the life of me figure out why one of my daily tasks wasn't running.
