Can't install DietPI

Post by Moksu »

Hey!

I tried switching to DietPI but after the first launch on a SD card all i get is

IP address | xxx.xxx.xxxx

Default login:
username = root
Pasword = dietpi

Stuff spammed and it does not move to next step. What would be some type of configure menu?

Device?

Have you tried logging in at the prompt?

Code: Select all

root
dietpi

Hey!
Thanks for the fast respond. It did seem i only needed to enter the username and password, seems like something off with the scaling in the Pi, so can't see the last line.

Most likely your monitor requires overscan, try the following in /DietPi/config.txt (or /boot/config.txt when powered off)

Code: Select all

disable_overscan=0
