Cannot install Noble and BLENo

Hello!

The project I'm working on requires BLE. I followed instructions from http://rexstjohn.com/configure-intel-edison-for-bluetooth-le-smart-development/ Configure Intel Edison for Bluetooth LE (Smart) Development - Rex St John and tried installing Noble and Bleno but, Edison can't parse the JSON. Please help me understand why this is is happening and the fix for this problem.

Hardware: Edison

Firmware: Yocto Linux 1.7.4

Thanks

Teja

Hello tejaChintalapati,

That's strange I have completely different outputs when trying to install Noble and Bleno, were you using a custom image? Of if you weren't, which image are you using? You can find out the version of your Edison's image with the command configure_edison --version.

These are my outputs:

On Noble:

Peter,

Thank you for the reply. I'm not using custom image. My version # is 159.

Thanks

Teja

In that case, I'd suggest you to reflash your board and try again since I'm using the same image and I had no issues with the node modules. It might also be related to your network, does it have any security like a firewall?

Peter.

I successfully installed cylon-intel-iot. So, the Firewall problem is ruled out.

And I'll update you after re-flashing the firmware.

I found I needed to install libusb-1.0-dev to work around the missing libudev.h when building the BLE samples.

 

My /etc/opkg/base-feeds.conf contains:

src/gz all http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/all src/gz edison http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/edison src/gz core2-32 http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/core2-32

Then:

opkg update opkg install libusb-1.0-dev cd ~/.node_app_slot npm rebuild

My Edison version:

cat /etc/version 201603141535
