The Presentation:

Carl did a major belly-flop as he entertained and amused the group.  The live demonstration attempted to show how to take a Raspberry Pi image and customize it with ssh keys and network settings to allow a headless installation.

All went well until it was time to mount the image’s partitions.  It took the group’s participation to find the command “partprobe” which allowed access to the partitions.  See the updated instructions for the list of commands that are run to create the custom image.

Then the surprise came when the image was deployed to a MicroSD card and the Pi did not attach to the network.  Again the group chimed in with suggestions and we experimented until time ran out.

Since this method worked flawlessly in the past, Carl promised to find what changed and to update the instructions accordingly.
