The second waffle
Unfortunately, the attempt to set up the Pi’s last week didn’t work very well. Most of them had problems with names, accounts, etc. But, as Al Davis says, you always throw away the first waffle.

If you don’t have an https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH/OpenSSH/Keys, get one before starting.
Starting it up
Do not be afraid to ask advice from the people around you or the instructor. Do the following.

- Use ssh to connect to your Pi.
- Start raspi-config.
- Change the password. Use your UNC Asheville so you won’t forget.

- Change boot mode to console with login.
- Change locale to use en_US.UTF-8 .

Get the instructor to check out the account and your setup.
If there are 45 minutes of so left in the class, you can use apt-get to start update the Raspberry Pi operating system. If not, we can move your Pi to another room. Or, we can just leave your Pi in RRO 223 until CSCI 235 meets that everning.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-update sudo shutdown -r now
In case you finish really early
