    The idea is to use a web browser to connect to the newly installed OS on the pi. Now if you have WiFi you may need to set that up. This requires knowledge of how to setup the WiFi on your Pi via the command line. Good luck with that. Or you can try a different solution like LibreELEC which boots up with an OS so you can you actually set it up and use it without having an IT degree :-) Open source and free doesn't always mean easy to setup and use.


    Question 4 years ago on Step 5

    I'm stumped, how do you get from Step 4 to 5? i.e., get past the command line prompt -- volumio@volumio:~$ -- for it to run or to be set up? Nothing I've tried gets past the DOS. I need to run it WIRED, as a stand alone unit w/ just kbrd, mouse and monitor into a hi-fi system. I'm new to RPi and Linux, but have used comps for 30+ years, so didn't think it should be that difficult...

    Thanks for any help, links, etc you can provide.
