Raspian installation error and Datasheet errata

9 years 3 months ago #29530006 by beerbot
With a fresh install of Raspian I found errors in both the instructions and the actual script:

(1) Instructions. The Datasheet Errata (RIO) has both an error and two omissions:
- Error. The wget command downloads a file named "file," so the unzip command must match:
unzip file
- Ommissions. The Datasheet Errata (RIO) leaves out two steps after the unzip command:
chmod 755 rio_board_install_raspbian_NOOBS.sh
At this point the Raspberry Pi reboots and the next instruction in the Errata can be executed,
although I had to use "sudo" to get rioboard_test to work.

(2) Script. The install script creates a file in /boot called "cmdline.txt," with the following line:
dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=tty1 root=/dev/mmcblk0p6 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline rootwait

The device /dev/mmcblk0p6 did not exist on my raspberry and so it would not boot.
I changed it to /dev/mmcblk0p2 and it then booted.

The datasheet was plagued with problems to start and we do apologize for that.

From what I saw last is that when the "file" is downloaded, it is file.zip, but granted it may be seen just as "file". So I found I had to unzip it, by sending unzip file.zip.

As for the other 2 steps, I will have someone get that fixed.
