Identify the device and write the uncompressed image to the raw device.
Please note this will destory ALL data on the device. Make sure you select the right device, there's no way back!

Now your card is ready for use with the Raspberry Pi. You may want to run gparted and reclaim the rest of the free space on your card.
You can now apply power to the device and connect it to your computer. A single USB cable connected to the connector marked "USB" will work. The "ACT" LED will flash and the device will start booting. In up to two minutes, the Raspberry Pi will switch to the USB device mode. You'll see the following lines in your dmesg:
usb 1-3: new high-speed USB device number 110 using xhci_hcd usb 1-3: new high-speed USB device number 111 using xhci_hcd usb 1-3: New USB device found, idVendor=0525, idProduct=a4aa usb 1-3: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=0, SerialNumber=0 cdc_ether 1-3:1.0 usb0: register 'cdc_ether' at usb-0000:00:14.0-3, CDC Ethernet Device, 52:8e:b9:6c:48:ea cdc_acm 1-3:1.2: ttyACM0: USB ACM device cdc_ether 1-3:1.0 enp0s20u3: renamed from usb0 IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): enp0s20u3: link is not ready IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): enp0s20u3: link becomes ready
Two new USB devices appeared: the serial port ttyACM0 and a network device usb0.
First, connect to the serial port. Log in as root, set up the password and create a user account for you:
# screen /dev/ttyACM0 Pignus release 23 (Alpha) Kernel 4.4.0-1.pi2.fc23.armv6hl on an armv6l (ttyGS0) localhost login: root Last login: Wed Dec 31 19:03:51 on ttyGS0 [root@localhost ~]# passwd Changing password for user root. New password: Retype new password: passwd: all authentication tokens updated successfully. [root@localhost ~]# useradd -m rpiuser [root@localhost ~]# passwd rpiuser Changing password for user rpiuser. New password: Retype new password: passwd: all authentication tokens updated successfully. [root@localhost ~]#
Terminate the screen session with CTRL+A followed by K and y.
Now that you have a user account, you can log in through the network. Your Raspberry Pi's address is 10.42.0.1.
$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com's password: [rpiuser@localhost ~]$
By default, the device runs a DHCP server that assigns an IPv4 address to your computer. If you want to share your computer's connection with the Raspberry Pi you need to reverse the setting. First, run the DHCP server on your computer:
$ nmcli c add type ethernet con-name rpi-dhcp ifname enp0s20u3 Connection 'rpi-dhcp' (56a2dc40-58c4-40b8-a009-ee35f8d709c6) successfully added. $ nmcli c modify rpi-dhcp ipv4.method shared $ nmcli c up rpi-dhcp Connection successfully activated (D-Bus active path: /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/35) $
Then turn on DHCP client on the Raspberry Pi:
# screen /dev/ttyACM0 [root@localhost ~]# nmcli c modify usb0 ipv4.method auto [root@localhost ~]# nmcli c up usb0 Connection successfully activated (D-Bus active path: /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/7)
Were all done. Check access to the Internet:
