I haven't done anything to my Raspberry Pi or my computer except for putting the docker image onto the SD card.

I tried looking for how to do this without a display but couldn't find how anywhere. They all seemed to have a step that I needed to do to get there, but I didn't know what. How would I go about doing this?

I have:

  • rpi1 2011.12
  • SD card with docker image on it
  • All wires required
  • 2
    What docker image. And are you trying to use a docker image instead of an OS like Raspbian on your Pi?

  • Is there any reason why you have no attached display? I suggest to start with a Raspi connected to a display and keyboard first. If you have a docker image (which image?) started on your Raspberyy (how do you do this?) how do you try to connect to the image?

  • @framp I used the Raspbian docker image. I added it using the instructions... I can't use a display because i don't have one. Mar 30, 2019 at 14:33
  • @12944qwerty Please provide a link to the docker image you downloaded and the instructions you followed.

You don't use a docker image. It's just a plain Raspbian image you use.

There is one important step you have to execute when you copied the image on the SD card: Enable ssh access. See Enable SSH on a headless Raspberry Pi
