Raspberry Pi Notes

This Page contains various bits and pieces of Raspberry Pi information that I’ve collected/discovered/invented. While it’s meant to be a readily available source for me, I’ve made some effort to document the information just in case other visitors happen upon this page. Detailed tutorials can be found in the following child pages

Creating backups

Use rsync. A useful rsync tutorial.

# Eventually, a script template for backing up the RPi
rsync -aAXv

For rebuilding a system

# Sends the current set of packages to a file
sudo dpkg --get-selections > package_list
# Restores that set of packages
sudo dpkg --set-selections <packages_list
sudo apt-get -u dselect-upgrade
