Running the most recent BBBMini build on BBB Rev A6 (2GB)

After creating an SD Card image with "Download Debian image https://rcn-ee.com/rootfs/bb.org/testing/2016-09-11/console/BBB-bla..." and trying to load it on a BBB Rev A6 (2gb) the flashed image does not appear to load. Has this image been tested on Rev A6? Is there another build, or how can this build be changed into an SD Card OS?

That should fit and work with your 2GB BBB. Can you explain a little bit more what happens?

During the Flash the lights go from D2-D5 and back again few a few minutes, they the system shuts down. When attempting to boot D2 and D3 light and I am unable to make an SSH connection.


Just found a A5A BBB with 2GB, same issue here. I have to talk to robert about that.

You can use the SD card as file system as well, you have to change the last line from /boot/uEnv.txt from 

cmdline=init=/opt/scripts/tools/eMMC/init-eMMC-flasher-v3.sh

to

#cmdline=init=/opt/scripts/tools/eMMC/init-eMMC-flasher-v3.sh

and reboot.

Hi Justin,

this issue should be fixed with this image: https://rcn-ee.net/rootfs/bb.org/testing/2016-09-21/console/BBB-bla...

So for the 9-11 image I changed the line to: #cmdline=init=/opt/scripts/tools/eMMC/init-eMMC-flasher-v3.sh.

During the Compile step: waf configure --board=bbbmini I ran into the following issue:

Checking for program 'arm-linux-gnueabihf-pkg-config' : not found
Could not find the program ['arm-linux-gnueabihf-pkg-config']
(complete log in /home/debian/ardupilot/build/config.log)

The log had:

Checking for program 'arm-linux-gnueabihf-pkg-config'
not found
find program=['arm-linux-gnueabihf-pkg-config'] paths=['/home/debian/bin', '/usr/local/bin', '/usr/bin', '/bin', '/usr/local/games', '/usr/games'] var='PKGCONFIG' -> None
from /home/debian/ardupilot: Could not find the program ['arm-linux-gnueabihf-pkg-config']

Any ideas on where this program is and how to fix?

I haven't had a chance to check the new image yet.

I have had no luck trying to connect to the 9-21 build via SSH. This is after flashing it to a BBB rev A6. Only the D2 light is flashing, so its not quite the same as the 9-11 build. When booting off of the SD card for the 9-11 build there was not any issue with SSH.

Same issue found when doing a cross compile. Thus, the issue appears to be separate from the specific BBB build.

The file does appear to be on the path at /usr/bin and is a link:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Sep 23 09:13 /usr/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf-pkg-config -> pkg-config

Yet the linked to file pkg-config does appear to be missing.

Hi Justin,

follow Step 11 from  https://github.com/mirkix/BBBMINI/blob/master/doc/software/software.md

Mirko

Mirko,

Per my earlier note from an hour ago, there is evidence that I did execute this step 11 successfully:

"lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Sep 23 09:13 /usr/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf-pkg-config -> pkg-config"

Yet the 'waf config step' fails. (As the link already exists I can't execute step 11 again.)

Thanks for your all your help.

Any ideas on what to do next?

Justin

The error message is saying that it looked in /usr/bin, and arm-linux-gnueabihf-pkg-config does exist there, so I'm not clear on whether there is a find error, or it is failing on the symbolic link not resolving as there is no pkg-config anywhere. Per my earlier note, my guess is that it is pkg-config that is not being found.
