Early days but I am very happy with Bodhi on my Pi! I only had Debian installed before and Bodhi seems much quicker generally. I just seems a little slow or stubborn closing down or opening some windows. I have had Bodhi on my Desktop for almost a year and it works very well!

Gave it a try today, it looks great and boot very quickly. Two problems though, I have no network connection (eth0 is recognised on on boot) and no network manager. The file system? is mounted read only so I can't alter the config files to try and get it working.

Any clues?

Hi

I also had those two problems and solved them easily. I will give you the link to the Bodhi Pi Forum where help for these and any other problems that you may encounter can be found:

http://forums.bodhilinux.com/index.php? ... pberry-pi/

The first topic provides a link to a blog announcing the Bodhi release fro the Pi. This page gives alternate user/passwords......

"The default logins for this image are:

bodhi/bodhi
root/raspberry

The "bodhi" user has sudo rights by default. "

I tried sudo leafpad using raspberry as the password and edited the appropriate file easily.

Let me know how you get on...or better still, connect with the Pi / Bodhi Forum where much more competent people can help you.

.... Sorry...I wasn't clear.... the first topic gives a link to the announcement and this gives general info including passwords to solve that issue...the second topic relates to the network connection problem that you mentioned; I followed his suggestions to fix it.

That did the trick, thanks. Odd though as the Pi sees the ethernet port as eth0 I had to change /etc/network/interfaces to eth1 to make it work.

We've released a newer image, based on Bodhi's new ARMHF line (and raspbian).
