But the username/password = admin/admin did not work ... it was necessary
to do this:

root at geonode:~# geonode shell
Python 2.7.6 (default, Mar 22 2014, 22:59:56)
[GCC 4.8.2] on linux2

<https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-7244624.html>.   It took about 20
minutes to reboot directly into X with blankscreen and no feedback during.
Once booted run "top" in a terminal and watch for load avgs to settle
down.  Eventually, after about 30 minutes, the x-desktop is responsive.

The architecture of the raspberry-pi is ARM rather than i86, and the
geoserver stuff is all java, if i'm not mistaken, so the problem with the
goenode-geoserver part of the ppa:geonode/testing installation (i.e. that
it failed to install) is likely a Java-ARM issue ... IMLIC (if my logic is
