Added note about graphical setup and VNC

    1111== Raspberry Pi Installation - On the raspi == 
    1212The following installation instructions are meant to be executed on the raspi. After writing the image to the SD card plug the card into the raspi and connect it to Ethernet and power. The raspi will automatically get an IP address via DHCP if such service is provided. All the following instructions assume that you have found a way to know the IP (query the router/DHCP server or guess) and logged in as root using {{{ssh root@the-ip-you-found}}}. The initial password is {{{raspberrypi}}}. 
     14=== First Boot Setup === 
     15If you plug a screen, keyboard, and mouse, or if you connect using VNC to the first boot screen you can do several of the steps mentioned later over the graphical first time setup guide, i.e. resizing the root file system, setting up the time zone, or configuring the graphical output. Confer the setting up VNC below to use the VNC method. If you choose to use the graphical setup you can skip the following manual steps. 
     17=== Installing a VNC Server === 
     18There are two methods to setup the VNC server. First, you can run a VNC server manually each time you want to use it. This method is required to connect to the first boot screen. The second method adds a module loaded by the X server so that VNC is enabled each time the graphical screen starts. 
     20For either method first install the required packages using 
     22yum install tigervnc-server tigervnc-server-module 
     25==== Manual VNC Server ==== 
     26Login as root. Check which display the X server is using by issuing 
     28ps ax | grep Xorg 
     30You will get a line where the commands starts with something like {{{/usr/bin/Xorg :0}}}. The ":0" shows you the display number. For first boot it will most likely be ":9". Then create a password and run the VNC server with 
     32# vncpasswd /etc/vnc-passwd 
     33Password: ... 
     34Verify: ... 
     35# DISPLAY=:0 x0vncserver -PasswordFile /etc/vnc-passwd 
     37As you can see the display number must be adjusted as needed. 
     39==== Automatic VNC Server integrated in X Server ==== 
     40First setup the password file as described above in the manual section. Then create the file {{{/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-vncserver.conf}}} with the following content. 
     42Section "Screen" 
     43    Identifier "VNC" 
     44    Option "SecurityTypes" "VncAuth" 
     45    Option "UserPasswdVerifier" "VncAuth" 
     46    Option "PasswordFile" "/etc/vnc-passwd" 
     49Section "Module" 
     50    Load "vnc" 
     53The VNC server will be active after the next restart of the X server. In doubt just reboot. Do this only after first boot has been completed initially. 
    1455=== Resizing the Root Partition === 
    67108cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Berlin /etc/localtime 
     111=== Enable Avahi mDNS-SD Service Discovery === 
     112Service discovery and host name announcement is extremely convenient and heavily used by Fawkes. You can enable it issuing the following commands: 
     114systemctl unmask avahi-daemon.service 
     115systemctl unmask avahi-daemon.socket 
     116systemctl enable avahi-daemon.service 
     117systemctl start avahi-daemon.service
