rio_board_install crashes Raspbian on reboot

6 years 3 months ago #29529054 by tony@g-eye.com
I need to install Raspbian Linux from the Raspberry Pi Foundation's NOOBS on to my Raspberry Pi with the RIO-IO stack-on board in order to use the math algorisms available in Mathematica (which is now included with Raspbian). The Raspberry Pi (Raspi) runs well with the Raspbian Linux and the Rio board stacked on.

Following the instructions on pg 11 of the Rio Board manual to load the rio_board_install.sh, in order to link the functionality of Raspi and Rio, every thing seems to install without a problem until the automatic reboot caused by the install script. Shortly after the automatic reboot procedure the system stops and can not be recovered. The SD card is then corrupted and needs to be reformatted (using SDFormatter) before the NOOBS can be again reinstalled. I have tried this with several SD cards of different makes and sizes (and with and without system updates).

After the reboot, A little past the list of partitions, the following errors are encountered (among others):
"No file system could mount root, tried: ext4"
"Kernel panic - syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block (179.2)"

The result is irrevocable damage to the Raspi file system on the SD card that makes it useless and inoperable.

I understand that other Linux flavors will work with the Rio board but they do not contain Mathematia. Since Raspbian is the recommended OS for Raspi someone must have a solution to this problem. Thanks for any help.

As a work around to the noobs raspbian installation, try using the Wheezy-Raspbain install(Debian build).

www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/

I have not tried this, but there are some customers who have and said that this installation worked. Therefore I also don't know what the differences are between the noobs build and the Wheezy Debian build.

We would like to know which build is the preferred from our customers, but know that we can't please everyone; however, we will try our best to do so.

Wheezy works well and Mathematica is included in it. Now the problem of getting it to accept data form the GPIO.

The problem is the roboteq install script uses a hard coded root fs which is just bad. I've added a fix in the script which I used to install wheezy raspbian successfully (after having the same kernel panic issue). Basically just replace the last echo command in the script with these two lines:

root=`cat /boot/cmdline.txt | awk '{print $3}'`
echo "dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=tty1 $root rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline rootwait" > /boot/cmdline.txt

Good luck!

Seem to have the same issue. I have the basic "Noobs" default OS on my raspberry pi. Installed the RIOAHRS drivers and it tanked my OS. Looked at the install script that just now fetched from the web site and it still contains a bogus root file system in it !!!!

I'll give your work-around a try. I'm guessing its not been fixed in the last 6 months then. Hope this works then. It will take me a while to re-build my PI so that I can start the process over --- err.
