The First Steps - To Not Break It

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Just got my BB the other day and loving it! I noticed I had a couple problems initially after running some custom scripts. It looks like it was due to locale and/or timezone not being set correctly.

Are there any best practices that should be used when using the BB (aside from Wiki and other BB references)? I know @Darren Kitchen says the whole point is to be more 'drag and drop' and less confusing. Errring on the side of making this more complicated (because why not) - so I guess this question is two part...

1. Aside from running the install.sh - should we set locale, timezone, keyboard layout? If so, how far should we go into customizing this (like .bachrc_history size) and other nerd things without breaking the functionality? By customization, I'm thinking something sort of "raspi-config(ish)" for the BB and the settings changed there. I'd be interested in creating a BB-config similar to raspi-config if things don't break.

2. Riding on #1 - can the hostname of the BB be changed without affecting how it operates? I assume so since most scripts use the host variable....

 

--------------------

UNRELATED - Curious if normal behaviour: After running a QuickCreds (SW#2) on my Win10 machine - I removed the BB, put into ARMING, deleted payload from SW#2, put BB back into Win10 on SW#2 (to share internet), and noticed that the BB got a 192.168.100.1 address instead of a 172.16.32.x? Currently on a 10.x.x.x network. I tried to SSH in as I usually do and it wouldn't take the credentials... weird.
