Still waiting for my actual Raspberry Pi, so I’m reading up on Python in the meantime (Teach Yourself Python in 24 Hours).
The other day, a friend generously loaned me his Pi to check out. On the first boot, all went well until it started searching for the LAN connection. I let it finish the very slow boot, and then shut down again.
I connected the LAN cable and rebooted. This time it got itself an IP address and could access the internet. Woohoo!
I wanted to take a screenshot, but when I hit the PrintScreen key, it said I didn’t have gnome-screenshot installed.
A quick install: “sudo apt-get install gnome-screenshot“.
The following screenshot shows part of the installation of this program in the xterm window. The browser, NetSurf, is also shown in the foreground.
The second screenshot shows some Python code being run, displaying 800 digits of pi. Note the curious early occurrence of “999999” in this number.
