I set up my Pi yesterday with Debian using Element 14's "Getting Started" document, everything went smoothly.
As an absolute noob, I started following the training videos at:
http://www.element14.com/community/docs ... ing-videos
Having followed tutorials 1&2 on my laptop, I figured that tutorial 2 could be done directly on the Pi.
Realising I didn't have virtual box (and so no access to Linux Additions), I decided to skip that part and go on to installing Synaptic.
On opening aptitude and pressing 'g' to install Synaptic, I had a message advising that I wasn't logged in as a root user - I was logged in as the standard 'pi' user.
A bit of Googling led me to conclude that I needed to download ARCH Linux ARM - I unzipped this and copied the image to my SD Card (Already containing the Debian software) using Win32DiskManager. I then put the card back in the Pi and booted up.
I was presented with a command screen with:
"Arch Linux 3.1.9-20-ARCH+ (tty1)
I was unable to login as 'Pi' but the 'root' login worked fine. However, when I type 'startx' to get to the main screen I see "-bash: sudo:command not found"
I'm not sure what to do next. Can anyone spot my obvious mistake(s)??
