Out of Micro sd cards so it is time to get a few more. Finally have my rpi 0 w to play with. Finally have Pimoroni hammer headers. They do not come with instructions, but that was finally figured out. Nice they gave you a choice of either female or male headers.
Also have the speaker bonnets, but they do not come with speakers so the ad is misleading,
Only have a few atmel368 chips left. Have a project or two for them.
Have the rpi zero w teathered to my nexus 7 2012.
Using the spi version of the ethernet interface with the rpi zero. Your connection may vary.
Download Raspbian Lite
wget -O raspbian-lite-latest.zip https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian_lite_latest

Write Image to SD Card
dd bs=4M if=2017-08-16-raspbian-stretch-lite.img of=/dev/sdb
After this step there should be 2 additional mounts (if not mount the 2 SD card partitions manually).
Set up network interfacesCreate a new config file for the wireless interface.
Add the following to the new file (if you want to use DHCP – change to static if you want to fix the IP):
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
Note: if you want to use ethernet to get updates and etc. add:
iface eth0 inet dhcp
Set up connection details for local wireless network
Check the file and ensure the network settings are as per the Wireless Network you are connecting to.
You could use the clear-text PSK passphrase but I prefer not to do that in configuration files. Create a PSK hash using ‘wpa_passphrase‘
There could be other config values you might need depending on the network you are connecting to.Ensure there are DNS Servers configured
sudo vim etc/resolv.conf
Add the following to the new file (or your own nameservers):
# Google's public DNS servers
Enable SSH AccessCreate an ssh empty file in the mounted boot partition. This is necessary to enable SSH access as SSH is by default disabled on more recent versions of Raspbian.
sudo touch ssh
Boot RPiBoot the Rpi by powering up and after ~30secs you should be able to connect to the IP assigned. Check your router or ise ‘nmap’ or similar to check the assigned IP:
sudo nmap -p22 -sV 10.1.1.0/24
Default login details are
Running desktop using libreoffice and web server from my rpi0w shown at the side, Allows you to save data much easier and not waste space of the palmtop. Can be done with the RPI3 also. You would not believe what all that little computer can do. (shown: nexus 7 2012 and the raspberry pi zero w).
