Troubleshooting Errors Inevitably you’ll run into trouble with your code and you’ll need to track down and squash a bug. The IDLE interactive mode can be your friend; the Debug menu provides several tools that will help you understand how your code is actually executing. You also have the option of seeing all your variables and stepping through the execution line by line. Syntax errors are the easiest to deal with; usually this is just a typo or a misunderstood aspect of the language. Semantic errors — where the program is well formed but doesn’t perform as expected — can be harder to figure out.

Change timezone You’ll probably want to set this. Memory split This option allows you to change the amount of memory used by the CPU and the GPU. Leave the default split for now. Overclock You now have the option of running the processor at speeds higher than 700MHz with this option. For your first time booting, leave the default settings or try Medium or Modest. You may want to return to this later (Turbo mode can run at 1000MHz). SSH This option turns on the Secure Shell (ssh) server, which will allow you to login to the Raspberry Pi remotely over a network.
