Whenever I set up a Raspberry Pi, I go through the whole setup thing. Can’t remember what I did the previous time or how. So it’s the same tedious production each time. Most of the configuration is the same as the last time.
I now create a preconfigured version of the Raspbian versions I use. This way I only need to configure things specific to a particular use.
For the Raspbian Buster Lite image, I’ve done the following:
I did not remove the pi user as, according to some articles, the pi user is required by some software. Don’t know which, but decided to not tempt fate.
There is probably more that could be preconfigured, but some are sort of security sensitive and others will change from install to install.
I’ve also run it on a Pi 2 and a Pi 3 – seemed OK.
My Raspbian Buster Lite preconfigured image can be downloaded from here:
The zip file includes:
Now I have no excuse to get my crowd/flock/bother/menagerie/gaggle (?) of Pi-s something to do!
