The Raspberry Pi Config Tool
The Raspberry Pi Configuration Tool (aka Raspi-config) is a very useful tool pre-packaged with the Raspbian "wheezy" distro. You'll probably see it during installation; but you can launching manually for the terminal with the following command:
I'd recommend running the following as soon as possible:
- expand_rootfs: This will expand the file system to the full size of your SD card; allowing you to use the full capacity for programs etc.
- change_pass: Change the default password!
- change_locale: Change your location. This will be used by some 3rd party installer to install the correct config for your setup.
- change_timezone: Change the timezone so, well, so you have the right time.
