Enter to Parallella Board with SSH and first settings

Start typing in the terminal:

$ ssh [user@]hostname

In my case: (I use 192.168.1.110 to connect through a router, or 10.42.0.50 to connect directly by ethernet).

$ ssh parallella@192.168.1.110

The command above starts the remote control of Parallella Board.

After, write the password parallella:

parallella@192.168.1.110's password: parallella

Then, the mext message will appear:

Welcome to Linaro 14.04 (GNU/Linux 3.14.12-parallella-xilinx-g40a90c3 armv7l) ' Documentation: https://wiki.linaro.org/ Last login: Wed Jul 15 01:08:59 2015 from 192.168.1.110 parallella@parallella:~$

Then, if is the first time you connect to Parallella Board with SSH, you can:


Set or Change User Password

Type passwd command as follows to change your own password:

$ passwd


Upgrade an Update

parallella@parallella:~$ sudo apt-get update parallella@parallella:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade


Set correctly timezone

To change the timezone on Ubuntu/Debian distros you can use this command:

$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata


Correct issue: "perl: warning: Setting locale failed."

If you run $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales and it shows the next message:

perl: warning: Setting locale failed. perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings: LANGUAGE = (unset), LC_ALL = (unset), LC_PAPER = "es_PE.UTF-8", LC_ADDRESS = "es_PE.UTF-8", LC_MONETARY = "es_PE.UTF-8", LC_NUMERIC = "es_PE.UTF-8", LC_TELEPHONE = "es_PE.UTF-8", LC_IDENTIFICATION = "es_PE.UTF-8", LC_MEASUREMENT = "es_PE.UTF-8", LC_TIME = "es_PE.UTF-8", LC_NAME = "es_PE.UTF-8", LANG = "C.UTF-8" are supported and installed on your system. perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").

Simply add 'es_PE.UTF-8' to 'local' file:

$ sudo locale-gen es_PE.UTF-8

If you have the same issue but it shows 'en_US.UTF-8' instead of 'es_PE.UTF-8', so in the previous command replace 'es_PE.UTF-8' by 'en_US.UTF-8'.


Run some Tests

Now you can browse folders and run some tests with:

$ ./test.sh


Shutdown the Parallella Board

To shutdown the Board Parallella not forget to insert the following command, and then disconnect the power supply:

$ sudo shutdown -h now
