Tonight I brought my Raspberry Pi to the Manchester (NH) Linux Users Group for a show & tell session.
Here are my slides:
For the record, some of us were drinking Lindemans Framboise Lambic Beer in honor of the topic.

Tonight I installed the cool social networking monitoring tool ThikUp on my new Raspberry Pi with the lastest debian code drop.
- Downloaded the new (11-Jun-2012) test Debian/Wheezy image as announced on http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=8071
- Since I'm using a new 4GB MMC card and the image was built for 2GB, ran "
sudo rasp_config" to resize the disk and bias memory toward SoC instead of the video card. Rebooted. Realized it didn't reboot, pull power and boot
3) I run a a local apt-proxy to save bandwidth, so created /etc/apt/apt.conf that contains:
4) Update the apt-cache:
sudo apt-get update
- Install useful bits:
sudo apt-get install emacs screen mysql-server php5 php5-curl php5-gd php5-mysql
This installs ~61M of new packages and pulls in a suitable apache server.
Now time to install thinkup:
chown -R www-data /var/www/thinkup/data/
sudo touch /var/www/thinkup/config.inc.php
sudo chown www-data /var/www/thinkup/config.inc.php
- point a browser to http://192.168.2.120/thinkup/install
- Since I didn't bother to setup outbound email, need to manually
update the thinkup table. See
mysql -u root -p
mysql> use thinkup;
mysql> select id,full_name, is_activated from tu_owners;
| id | full_name | is_activated |
| 1 | Marc Nozell | 0 |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
mysql> update tu_owners set is_activated=1 where id=1;
- Point a browser to http://192.168.2.120/thinkup and setup
connections to your favorite social media sites.
