I am quite new to the raspberry pi and to get used to it I wanted to start a project with it. The first step is obviously to flash an image (I am using Raspberry pi lite since the recommended one is to large to put in my SD card) I don't have monitor for the raspberry pi, so I'm doing it headless. I have a raspberry pi 4B and this is what I usually do to set up the raspberry:
- I use balena etcher to flash an image, and I've also used the actual raspberry pi imager
- Once is flashed the image I open an empty ssh file with no extension, and I've also tried wireless to test things out, so I created also the wpa_supplicant.conf file with this specifications:
- I plug in the power source and try to use this command:
I tried a lot of variations, I've seen a lot of tutorials and it can't find the ip address, I've even used Angry ip scanner to see if there is a new ip in the network, but nothing worked.
I also know that the raspberry green led should make a specific pattern if there is a problem, but mine at the start starts making a lot of light turning in and of the green led in an irregular way, then the light gets very low and flashes continuously 1 flash at a time, and sometimes for a moment flashes with a lot of light and then it does the same thing.
I don't know if it's one of my silly mistakes that I do very often, or the raspberry pi doesn't work. I am open to any suggestion.
