Setup a new Pi

Format your SD card, eg using SD Formatter

Download the image of the distribution you want to use, eg

diskutil list and locate the location of the SD card sudo diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk[n] with the correct disk number Check that the right disk has been unmounted :)

sudo dd bs=1m if=path/to/image.img of=/dev/rdisk[n] It will take a while

Enable SSH by putting a blank file called ssh on the boot partition of the SD card eg by doing cd /Volumes/boot and touch ssh

If unable to connect using the device name, find out the IP allocated to it by looking at the router's DHCP devices list

Start configuring by typing sudo raspi-config
