DietPi
Give your Single-board computer some Lightweight justice. What you'll need:
- 1GB or greater Micro SD card (2GB+ for desktop and multiple software selections).
- Internet Access (Ethernet or Wifi, required to complete the DietPi setup).
- Dedicated USB Drive is highly recommended (Allows DietPi-Software installations to utilize USB over SD).



Step 1 (Download DietPi Image) :

DietPi for Raspberry Pi's (Jessie):
Download - DietPi.com
Download - Sourceforge

DietPi for Raspberry Pi's (Wheezy):
  • RPiv3 is not currently supported in DietPi Wheezy, please use the Jessie image.
  • Although DietPi will continue to support and patch Wheezy, new DietPi-Software additions are no longer being added. This is due to additional coding/testing time required to implement, and, the fact that Wheezy is an expiring distro (essentially "end of life").
    Please use Jessie, which is the current and future proof distro.

Step 2 :
Write to SD card using Windows:
- Unzip/extract the DietPi.7z image (ideally your desktop).
- Download Win32DiskImager
- Install and Run win32diskimager
- Click open (blue folder) and select the DietPi_v00.img file.
- Select the Drive Path to your SD card (eg: d:).
- Click Write. Verify this is your SD card, then confirm.

Write to SD card using Linux:
- Find the device (eg: /dev/sdb1) you need to write to by using blkid or mount.
- Double check that you have the correct dev path for your SD card (eg: /dev/sdb1).
- Unmount the SD card and all its partitions by using umount /dev/sdb?.
- Write the image using dd if=/path/to/DietPi_vXX.img of=/dev/sdb.

Optional (Wifi):
Pre-configure Wifi Details for DietPi
- Goto my computer, select the SD card and open it.
- Locate the file called dietpi.txt and open it with wordpad.
- Set Wifi_Enabled=1.
- Enter your ssid Wifi_SSID=MySSID and Wifi_KEY=MyWifiKey (both are case sensitive).
- Save the file.
- Plug the Wifi adapter into your device, before turning it on.

Step 3 :
Turn on your device
- Plug the SD card into your device and turn it on.
- Wait for DietPi to complete the filesystem expansion (this will automatically reboot your device 2 times). Once completed, the login screen will appear.

Step 4 :
Login to DietPi
- username = root
- password = dietpi
NB: v80 and previous versions of DietPi used the password = raspberry
- DietPi also comes pre-installed with Dropbear SSH Server.
On first login, DietPi will automatically update. Once completed, press enter to reboot the system. You can log back in again to resume setup.

Step 5 :
On first run, DietPi will ask the following questions regarding this installation:
- Dedicated USB Harddrive Installation?

If you selected Yes, DietPi will start the USB drive setup system. Follow the onscreen instructions. This will configure your USB drive for this installation.
Using a USB Dedicated Harddrive installation will ensure all DietPi-Software options are available to you. DietPi will automatically setup all future software installations to utilize the USB Drive rather than the SD card.

Optional (DietPi-Config):
DietPi-Config is a feature rich configuration tool for your device:
- Set Overclocking Profiles.
- Setup advanced networking options (static IP / wifi).
- Mount network filesystem shares (Samba / FTP).

Optional (Obtain IP Address):
Obtaining your IP address
- In all the DietPi guides, we use 192.168.0.100 as the IP address.
- This will need to be replaced with the IP address on your DietPi system.
