How to run GOST on Raspberry Pi

Warning: Raspberry Pi support for GOST is in experimental phase!

Flash card

For running GOST we need to have a flash card with Docker installed.

One easy option is to use the Hypriot images, it comes with Docker tools installed.

Installation instructions:

Use the latest Hypriot image: (29.06.2017)

TL;DR for Mac:

$ diskutil list
$ diskutil unmountdisk /dev/disk2 
$ sudo dd if=hypriotos-rpi-v1.5.0.img of=/dev/rdisk2 bs=1m

After installation, you should be able to login on machine 'black-pearl' with 'pirate' as username, password 'hypriot'

$ ssh pirate@black-pearl

Now update the installation:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade docker-hypriot docker-compose

Install GOST

Execute the following commands to install GOST on the Raspberry Pi.

Note: downloading new images can take some time... So grab a coffee and relax while GOST is installing...

$ curl > docker-compose.yml
$ docker-compose up

System is ready when these kind of messages appear:

Check installation

If the dashboard is working, you can continue with the Workshop exercises to configure GOST. Make sure to replace 'localhost' with 'black-pearl' in the exercises.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
