Installed first OS on the Roboard RB-100

After building a case for my RB-100 controller board, it was only natural to continue by installing one of my favorite OSes, namely Debian.

I followed this excellent guide, and in no time at all was I booting the RB-100 for the first time.

In steps:
  1. I downloaded the .ISO image from the guide.
  2. Inserted an USB-key of sufficient size (4GB) and waited for it to mount.
  3. Opened a shell and on the prompt i figured out which device my USB-key was by typing "mount" as root (see the detailed transcript of this step below).
  4. Unmounted the USB-key with "umount /dev/sdg1"
  5. Copied over the .ISO image to the USB-key with "cat mini.iso > /dev/sdg"
  6. Synchronized to make sure all buffers flushed with "sync"
  7. removed the USB-key and inserted it into the RB-100 USB port.
  8. Booted the RB-100 and pressed F11 key to select the USB-key as boot device.
  9. Inserted empty 2gb micro SD card in the slot on the RB-100
  10. Followed the normal Debian install procedure, answering the occasional question about identity, language, location and connection.

The USB-key is marked in green, thus the device is /dev/sdg

In the end i could finally get my uname:
