Raspberry-Pi Utilities

This is a collection of things to do with the Raspberry Pi that are made available to the community in the hope they are useful to others.


ArchBuild will build a new root filesystem for the Raspberry Pi. Use it instead of the official image if you want to tweak the installation.


Building a custom kernel.


Some tools that can help with managing disks (or other storage devices, e.g: sd card) and disk images.


Displays a basic text "test card" on a terminal. Handy for aligning an old composite monitor. Sized for 82 columns by 26 rows.


A collection of notes, scripts and other things that may be of interest. Basically, anything I have found useful will end up in here if they don't fit in anywhere else. See the ScrapBook CONTENTS file details of what's there.
