  • Installing 4DPi-32 on Raspbian Jessie

    Command # tar -xzvf 4d-hats_4-1-10_v1.0.tar.gz-C / # seems doesn't work, becouse I got an error. Is that part inside of the command #-xzvf # correct?

    Regards Vlado

    Hello Vlado

    Code:
    tar -xzvf 4d-hats_4-1-10_v1.0.tar.gz -C /
    You seemed to miss the space after the .gz file name
    Also note you need to do this with root privileges, so either sudo that command or sudo su before you run that command.

    Regards

      However looking at your subject of this post, you are installing Jessie onto a 4DPi-32.
      The 4d-hats_4-1-10_v1.0.tar.gz file is for revision 2.x hardware, and I assume you have revision 1.x hardware... as I dont believe 2.x hardware has been released from the production line yet.

      You need to look at the revision 1.x datasheet from the website, as the file you need to download is different.

          Hello James, command from rev.: 1.x was used to download and then to unpack, but no lucky.
          Last three lines from many of them:

          tar: lib/modules/4.1.10+: Cannot mkdir: Permission denied
          tar: lib/modules/4.1.10+/modules.builtin: Cannot open: No such file or directory
          tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

          OS is Raspbian Jessie.

          Thanks in advance

                Are you using a Pi1 (A/B/A+/B+) or are you using a Pi2?
                Did you change the kernel which is being loaded in the config.txt file in /boot/ ?
                Documented in the Datasheet.

                  I am using RPi2 which means I don't need to change anything in the kernel. By the way, with Raspbian Whezy no problem.

                    OK. I'm just writing the Jessie image to uSD card now, will run through this and come back to you shortly.

                        Hi Again.

                        OK all done.
                        It works for me, Pi2, Jessie release, 4DPi-3x kernel pack, running on 4DPi-32 REV 1.1 hardware.

                        The issue seems to be that the 4DPi-3x kernel pack assumes Pi1, instead of Pi2 as the datasheet states. So if you go into config.txt in /boot/ do you see it has the line uncommented for Pi1 instead of PI2 as you wanted?
                        Please check, and change it over if its wrong. You should then be up and running.

                        Regards
                        James

                            Well, this doesn't work. Checked twice.
                            - loading fresh copy of Jessie to SD
                            - power on
                            - command: sudo tar -xzvf 4dpi-3x_4-1-10_v1.0.tar.gz -C / (I already have pack on the SD)
                            - opening config.txt with nano
                            - uncoment requested line for RPi2
                            - saving file
                            - switch off RPi2
                            - power off
                            - montage 4DPi-32
                            - power on
                            - no respond

                            James, would you be so kind to test this issue on your hardware?

                            Regards

                              Hi Vlado

                              I did test this, and it worked fine for me.
                              I tested it when I posted at #12 above.

                              So you are saying it works with Wheezy right? But not Jessie?

                              Please confirm you do have Revision 1 hardware. What is written as the PCB version on the warranty sticker on the 4DPi-32 ?

                              Where abouts on the SD card did you have the tar.gz file before you unpacked it?

                              Regards
                              James
