NutPi Installation Instructions
Boot your Raspberry Pi into RISC OS from your RISC OS Pi SD card and when booting finishes, remove the card and insert the “NutPi” card. It is important that the NutPi card is inserted directly into the SD card slot on the Raspberry Pi for both the “!PiCopy” and “!PiSerial” programs to work correctly.
Left click on the SD card icon on the iconbar (near the bottom left of the screen) to view the contents of your NutPi card.
Left double-click the “!PiCopy” application to copy the contents of this SD card onto your main RISC OS Pi card. From there, it will be much easier to install software without needing to do lots of card swapping.
Each of the included software packages is supplied in a compressed zip archive. You should already have a program in your RISC OS Pi distribution which can open these, called “SDFS::RISCOSpi.$.Utilities.!SparkFS”.
Once you’ve opened a zip file, you should find instructions from the vendor on how to install the software. Failing that, the usual technique is to simply copy the application from within the archive onto your RISC OS Pi SD card using drag-and-drop. Normally, you’d put applications into the “SDFS::RISCOSpi.$.Apps” directory but it’s up to you.
RISC OS Open have brought this collection of software together in order to make your life simpler (and much cheaper!) but we don’t support the individual programs within. You should contact the vendors of each package with any specific queries (see below for their details). ROOL will be happy to help with any general problems, such as faulty SD cards. Please email us at email@example.com.
When contacting us or the software vendors, please quote your unique NutPi serial number. This can be found by inserting the NutPi card into your Raspberry Pi and running the !NutPiSerial application. The serial number can be copied from there for use in any correspondence.
