First Boot Configuration for a Raspberry Pi Running Raspbmc

Raspbmc has really made the installation of XBMC in a Raspberry Pi a breeze.

When you boot the system for the first time, the system will start and reboot several times.

It will automatically:

  • Resize the SD card partition
  • Create a user called "pi" with password "raspberry"
  • Install your wireless adapters (if any)

Literally, once the system configures itself after a series of reboots, the only thing you have to enter is your language. However, I would advise you set the Region, Timezone and Timezone Country.

International Settings in XBMC/Kodi

To set the Region, the Timezone Country and the Timezone, in XBMC/Kodi navigate to Settings->Appearance->International

Once you are in the International Settings screen, make sure the settings reflect the area where you live.

In this case, the settings are adjusted for Brisbane, Australia.
