Image named iot-devkit-prof-dev-image-galileo-20160606 is not there

Hello!

I have an interesting problem. The file transporting "iot-devkit-prof-dev-image-galileo-20160606.direct" is not in Bzip2 format, it is in regular Zip format. And oddly enough, none of the files and directories are available when that one is written out to my card. Ideally the one shown on

https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/galileo/downloads Downloads for the Intel® Galileo Board | Intel® Software where it says

"MicroSD* Card Image for Linux* Operating System

Using the microSD card image enables the Wi-Fi* drivers and sketch persistence. The libraries to use with either Eclipse* or the Intel® XDK are included in the EGLIBC-based image."

And then described next on https://software.intel.com/en-us/get-started-galileo-windows-step1 IoT - Step 1: Make a bootable micro SD card | Intel® Software is where those missing entries are described. What next?

You are right, documentation is misleading, because it explicitly mentions

"Use 7-Zip to extract the .bz2 file to your system"

where it should be

"Use 7-Zip to extract the Linux image file to your system"

or something similar. Anyhow, the file is properly handled by the 7-Zip file archiver suggested to be used in the documentation, so you should be able to continue the installation/setting up process.

This is strange... the link in the page you refer to is at

https://software.intel.com/galileo-image/latest Latest Yocto* Poky Image (210 MB)

(copied from the link you provided: https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/galileo/downloads Downloads for the Intel® Galileo Board | Intel® Software) and when I click on it the browser downloads

https://downloadmirror.intel.com/26028/eng/iot-devkit-prof-dev-image-galileo-20160606.zip https://downloadmirror.intel.com/26028/eng/iot-devkit-prof-dev-image-galileo-20160606.zip

i.e. the file iot-devkit-prof-dev-image-galileo-20160606.zip, for which my browser reports a size of 385MB (again, different from the documentation at the Intel site). Please use that link and send the result at your browser.

HTH,

Fernando.

Hello!

Mine reports the same thing. I also used the wget command on a different system, and it reported the same thing.

Now the problem of the image being only partially there needs to be resolved.

I do not understand... would you please send the screen with the reported problem?

I used the link above, and downloaded without trouble (7-10 min.):

An 7-Zip is able to handle the .zip:

Hello!

I used Winzip. And as it happens what I am referring to is that the image when written to the card should contain besides the Linux kernel of course, should also contain the listed directories:

  • boot
  • firmware
  • win-driver
  • bzImage

Those are what I mean. Only bzimage and the boot one are there.

You are right: the SD card contents are not those documented by Intel, Intel documentation is misleading on this.

Anyhow, the SD image is the right one in that: a) downloads, b) can be copied with no trouble in a MicroSD memory, c) boots the Intel Galileo with no trouble. I've conformed with Intel Galileo (aka Intel Galileo Gen1).

HTH,

Fernando.

Just in case: please report

a) if you are able to boot your Intel Galileo

b) if either there is all you need to work or something is missing.

I have not. I decided to return to the regular numbered card images and thus decided against trying out this image.

Just curious:

1) You have not...

a) were able to boot your Intel Galileo?

b) have all you need to work?

2) What is a "regular numbered card image"?

TIA,

Fernando.

Hello!

A numbered image, 1.00 and 1.03 and 1.04 and even 1.08 for example are all available from the same location as the site where the problem is located. I have gotten both 1.03 and 1.04 to work on the Gen 1 device, I have not tried out the 1.08 on the Gen 1, but it does work on a Gen 2 device I have here, by device I of course mean Galileo of course.

The Gen 2 one was originally bootstrapped by a third party agency then (March 2015) working with Windriver and of course Intel for a seminar on the Internet of Things, Since both devices will boot from USB, (it seems), I've been trying it out via a removable disk drive in compact flash format in a rig that works as a normal USB device would.

I have a new one on order and should be here in a few days....

If by "same location as the site where the problem is located." you mean the URL you included in your first post, i.e.

https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/galileo/downloads Downloads for the Intel® Galileo Board | Intel® Software

I don't find any image other than the iot-devkit-prof-dev-image-galileo-20160606.zip file. However, there is a link to https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=24272 Older Versions of the Software and Images in which there are the "numbered images". AFAIK, the numbered images are the ones uclibc based ones, which are considered as old ones since several months ago (at least those are referred to as "older" in the aforementioned page link...).

 

Since both devices will boot from USB, (it seems)

I'm completely lost on this... I'm not able to help about USB boot related issues.

Hi Doctorwho8,

 

 

Did you try booting the image using the SD Card? I did the same like you and FGT, the SD cardonly shows the bzimage and the boot, but there is no problem with that like FGT said, you can boot the SD card without problems.

 

 

Personally, I would recommend you to boot the image using the SD card because it is the easiest way to do this and it works fine. If you to do this please let us know if you successfully booted your Galileo image.

 

 

About the USB booting, I don't know how to do it but I'll investigate further to find the way to boot the image.

 

 

I hope this information helps you.

 

 

Regards,

Hi Doctorwho8,

 

 

Did you boot the image using the SD Card? Do you still want to boot from the USB Drive?

 

 

Remember that we are here to help you.
