Raspberry Pi Configuration
Process for configuring a Raspberry Pi for eVOLVER
3. Plug an 8GB micro-SD for the RPi into an adapter, then into a the computer.
4. Click the
Choose OSbutton, then scroll to the bottom and click
5. In the popup at the dropdown at the bottom of the window, select
All files(*.*). Then select the image file downloaded in Step 1.
6. Click the
Choose Storagebutton and select the SD Card.
7. Click the
Writebutton. A notification might appear warning about erasing all existing data on the card. Click
Yes. If it asks for your computer password afterwards, enter it. It might take a while to finish (~40m).
2. Plug the SD card into the computer.
4. Run the following command:
Identify the SD card name from this (it should be obvious). Next run:
diskutil unmountdisk <diskname>
where <diskname> is the name you identified from the previous command - it should look like
/dev/disk3/or something similar.
5. Use the
ddcommand to copy the image onto the SD card:
sudo dd bs=4m if=<diskimage.img> of=<diskname>
Be sure to change the two arguments above!
ifshould point to the image you downloaded from step 1, and
ofshould be the diskname.
This command can take a while, and it doesn't show any status or progress updates - be patient. If it fails, try decreasing the
4m- this will slow things down but will decrease the chance of failure. If you still have issues reach out on the forum.
Writing an image to save your full Raspberry Pi configuration.
Useful to save time when reimaging your Raspberry Pi if you want to go back to your custom Python code and calibrations as quickly as possible.
