Re: What OS?

Hi there! There is no "default" OS installed. The OS the RPi runs depends on what you flash on the SD-Card. Chances are, that if your dad ordered a preloaded SD-Card, you will get the current official Debian. That although doesn't hinder you in trying out the other distributions (arch, gentoo, puppy...

Re: How do you get this thing to work??

If you are not willing to learn the basics yourself, how do you think your 10 year old will learn? The Image you are downloading, is a whole operating system, GNU\Linux, probably the Debian distribution. You want to flash that to an SD-Card using any of the suggestions posted above.

Re: Raspberry Pi DOA (waited 3 1/2 months)

I dont see any obviously bad solder points on the provided pictures. I would suggest that you try, as mentioned, an other power supply and another SD card. You might want to check the checksums of your downloaded images aswell

Re: Dropbox-like filecloud

I installed owncloud on Arch on my RPi.
Works pretty well so far. Only tried it with a couple of files though. As client i use csync-owncloud with the owncloud-client.

The webinterface seems to work fine for me, not sluggish or anything.

Sparkleshare sounds interesting, thanks for that!

Re: Unplugging / Disconnecting USB memory sticks

You can safely remove a device by unmounting it.
Say your stick is mounted as /media/stick
then you can unmount it by typing

Code: Select all

umount /media/stick 
as root
