New Pi-Kitchen recipes!

PiKitchen

The Pi-Kitchen has been progressing exceptionally well, and I can introduce some new recipes to the cupboard:

000-NOOBS Setup

This recipe will allow easy setup of the NOOBS configurations and allow you to switch between GUI based installs and automatic ones, as well as selecting which custom flavour you want to automatically install.  It also provides a way to quickly add the standard set of Pi-Kitchen flavours to a new clean NOOBS card.

It’ll even allow you to pre-select the display output NOOBS will use (although NOOBS 1.3.10 has a bug which ignores the video setting from the cmdline file, this should work for other versions of NOOBS, including any new ones).

For more details see…Recipe: 000-NOOBS Setup

001-Startup

This is a recipe which will allow a huge amount of customisation to your setup.  Enabling scripts to run on first boot (for automated installations etc), scripts to run on start-up and a run-once option (for installations which need user input) this recipe will be very useful.  It even allows scripts to be automatically from from the RECOVERY partition (so you can drop files on there from windows and they will run next time you boot your Raspberry Pi).

For more details see…Recipe: 001-Startup

002-Boot Display

This allow you to pre-set a number of display settings (and other settings) which are set in the config.txt file of the boot partition.  This includes a script, switchdisp.sh which allows easy changing once installed on the Raspberry Pi.

Note: This also fixes the forced HDMI settings which NOOBS 1.3.10 adds, even when composite video out is selected.

003-Direct Network

This implements a recipe which allows easy setup of a direct network connection between a PC or Laptop and the Raspberry Pi (including sharing the PC’s Wifi network connection).  Once you have your configuration setup, you can install and connect to your Raspberry Pi, right out of the box.

Laptop connected to internet via WiFi, share Wifi using ICS with Wired Connection, use Wired Connection address as Gateway (and part of RPi IP address).

Laptop connected to internet via WiFi, share Wifi using ICS with Wired Connection, use Wired Connection address as Gateway (and part of RPi IP address).

This also includes a script switchip.sh to change configurations and to select standard network settings (as required).

Lots more on their way! 🙂
