Latest SD image file for RP

July 07, 2012 — BarryK
I have uploaded my latest SD skeleton image file for the Raspberry Pi. Please not, this is for Woof developers, it does not contain Puppy!

Image file, compressed (2.2MB):


I have taken the time to write a very nice documentation page:

Here is another interesting read:

"I seem to recall being able to get better img compression after mounting a filesystem and then cat /dev/zero >mountpoint/tmp #Zeroed bits compress better rm mountpoint/tmp sync umount mountpoint (bz2 seemed to compress best on mostly empty filesystems) ... Should work on all except swap (you have to zero it out before mkswapping it)

"technosaurus, I did that. My technique is to use 'dd' # dd if=/dev/zero of=dummyfile # sync # rm dummyfile This will create 'dummyfile' that fills all of the free memory space. I think that the 'sync' is important, to ensure that the zeros are all flushed to the SD card before the file is deleted.
