I’ve started the celebration too early. Unfortunately connection between a Raspberry Pi and my mac stopped working. I was looking for a reason for several hours and tried almost every possible configuration. I am lucky because when I was a kid, I used to use linux as my operating system, so white letters on black background hadn’t scared me off 😉
To make things working again I had to turn off the dhcpcd on a R-Pi and set everything with the static values. That was the first step. After making the boards connected I couldn’t reach any outside-local-network servers – that was a problem related to DNS. I was setting everything up using this instruction: but one thing was missing. The blog post might be a little outdated and some things in the Raspbian may have changed – my resolv.conf (responsible for resolving hostnames) was empty. I had to add a DNS related line in my /etc/networking/interfaces file:
iface eth0 inet static
dns-nameservers 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124
Now my raspberry Pi has an internet connection and I can finally start some serious programming 😉
See you soon!
ps. Connecting Raspberry Pi with an ethernet cable to a Mac is not a piece of cake 😉
