A new image for RaspberryPI has been released! New 0.2 version contains our latest lagarto v1.2, including lagarto-max with all the latest database/graph features.

The new image is less than 4GB instead of 8GB for better compatibility with existing flash cards. Once copied the image to the SD card, the main partition can be stretched to the rest of the available capacity with GParted.

Thus, as shown in the precedent tutorial, we have to follow the following steps:

  1. Download the image from here.
  2. Unzip the compressed image and check the MD5 sum to be sure that the file is not corrupted.
  3. Put a 4 GB (or higher capacity) SD card into a card reader connected to your desktop or laptop.
  4. Grab the downloaded image into the SD card. Follow these instructions from the Raspberry PI wiki.

From Linux, you can use dd to copy the image into the flash card:

# dd if=lagarto_rpi_0.2_4gb.img of=/dev/sdc

where /dev/sdc is the SD card file system

The image automatically sets the IP address to by default so you'll have to configure your LAN to accept the board. Then SSH into it if you want to set your own DNS's and IP settings:

# ssh root@

(password: raspberry)

Now you can access Lagarto-SWAP from and Lagarto-MAX from Needless to say, you can change the IP address and parameters from /etc/network/interfaces whenever you want. You'll also want to set your own DNS's from /etc/resolv.conf.

Lagarto-SWAP and Lagarto-MAX automatically start on start-up so there is no need to manually launch them.
