Image used: BBB-eMMC-flasher-debian-7.8-console-armhf-2015-02-19-2gb
Putting this on the SD card took some time (~10 minutes). I held down boot, powered the BBB with the 5V/1A supply connected to the USB port, and waited for the trickle flash pattern. Surprisingly, it only took a few minutes to get to four solid LEDs!
I first tried directly going to the Cloud9 page but alas, I guess that’s not a part of this image:
This did work on my last debian. I hope I am not messing something up.
Next resort was to go with [ PuTTy ], as I am on a Windows computer.
This was followed by the usual process for logging into the network, and then apt-get update and apt-get upgrade.
Upgrade failed somewhere. Ran again. Nothing to upgrade…
Proceeding to our new Edimax wi-fi adapter’s drivers!
[ tutorial ] and key steps:
Anyway, this was followed by unsuccessful attempts on getting wifi up and running. My dongle is lit up, but that’s all. Haven’t been able to get nmcli and /sbin/iw to work just yet.
Next was the most important thing for today, checking if the PRU package shows up:
Well, in that case. GitHub?
But first, I decided to resolve the wi-fi problem using the GUI route. I remembered using startlxde on R-Pi, and it turns out that Debian has startx to do that too. But my image didn’t come by startx, so I had to apt-get it (that is, apt-get xinit)
The workaround was to remove the lock on the archives.
[ Solution ]:
If you encounter with the same error, do the following steps.
Run the following command to unlock the apt package managers.# rm /var/cache/apt/archives/lock
Now update the sources list using command:# apt-get update
I wonder if there was a good reason for having the lock in the first place. Now apt-get was able to find the PRU package!
