My new Raspberry Pi A+

Its s nice little device. No bullshit set up. Easy to use Linux…WiFi was a bit difficult but that is because of Linux. Setting up the standard stuff like FTP, Apache etc.. easy! Getting NodeJS to work with MRAA…..oh lord.

//Get the latest version of node from the node web site
wget http://nodejs.org/dist/v0.10.28/node-v0.10.28-linux-arm-pi.tar.gz
//extract it
tar -xzf node-v0.10.28-linux-arm-pi.tar.gz
//set the mraa path manualy if https fails
sudo npm config set registry http://registry.npmjs.org/
//install mraa
sudo npm install mraa
//wait a long time....
