I’m not a computer expert so I don’t understand the steps to update DietPi on my Sparky/USBridge which arrived an hour ago.
The setup went well and in System Settings there’s a message that a new update is available. So far everything’s OK to me but I can’t understand the instructions how to update (see below):
How do I update?:
To ensure stability and control of updates, they must be completed in the Linux terminal.
Log into the system (HDMI/SSH):
** user = root*
** password = dietpi*
Run the update:
** Run the command dietpi-update*
** Follow the onscreen instructions to update the system.*
** Once completed, reboot the system. The device will now be running the latest version of DietPi.*
- NB: DietPi checks for updates daily, and during boot. If the update is not available, please reboot the system.
I really don’t know what login to HDMI/SSH means. Can somebody explain me what the steps are for a complete novice?
