Well, thanks to the help of some instructions and code I found on line cleverly named “JMR-PI“, I now have JMRI up and running on my Raspberry Pi. Truth be told, it really didn’t take much effort on my part. All I had to do was follow the instructions Matthew Macdonald-Wallace put up on the GitHub repository. If I am able to make any additions to contributions to the project, I will also put them up online.
Oh, also just a quick not that I did purchase a case for my Pi. I just can’t stand to have it sitting out all nekkid-like. I don’t know if this will be its permanent home, but it was cheap and also came with some heat sinks for the main chips.
I got it off eBay for less than $9 including the case, heat sinks, and shipping. Can’t beat that even if I don’t end up using it for anything more than initial protection and prototyping.
