Extra notes for running Raspbian "wheezy" on a Raspberry Pi
  1. Raspbian OS Update
    1. Go here to see if there is a new version.
    2. Download the files, 1 to 3 minutes depending on your connection speed.
      sudo apt-get update
    3. Install the files this can take over 10 minutes.
      sudo apt-get upgrade
  2. Auto-mount a USB Hard Drive
    1. Execute:
      ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid
      You will see something like the following:
      lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Dec 31  1969 796b2b1e-bd52-4095-8f46-8e5215d85ded -> ../../sda1
      Copy the value of the UUID --> 796b2b1e-bd52-4095-8f46-8e5215d85ded
    2. Mount the USB Drive and then check if it is accessible at /media/BTSYNC
      sudo mount -t auto -o uid=pi,gid=pi /dev/sda1 /media/BTSYNC
    3. Now, we will configure RasPi to do this after every reboot:
      sudo nano /etc/fstab
      Add the mount information in the fstab file:
      UUID=796b2b1e-bd52-4095-8f46-8e5215d85ded /media/BTSYNC auto rw,defaults 0 0
    4. Reboot
