The Raspbian OS images you can download from the PiDP-8/I development
site are based on the official Raspbian images, so the
Raspberry Pi Foundation’s installation guide applies just as well
to our PiDP-8/I software images. I particularly like using the
Etcher method, even on a POSIX system, since it can write the SD
card directly from the Zip file, without requiring that you unpack the
*.img file within first.
You will need to use a 2 GB or larger SD card.
The contents of the Zip file are:
||the OS image, based on Raspbian Stretch Lite|
||SHA-256 hash and file size for the OS image file|
Aside from having the PiDP-8/I software installed and running, the primary difference between this disk image and the official Raspbian Lite image is the default user name and password:
You will be made to change that password on first login.
Remember, the S in IoT stands for Security. If we want security, we have to see to it ourselves!
If you do not want your PiDP-8/I to be secure, see my other guide, "How to Run a Naked PiDP-8/I."
