Problem installing Ubilinux in Intel edison

Jump to solution

Hi,

I followed the https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/loading-debian-ubilinux-on-the-edison Loading Debian (Ubilinux) on the Edison - learn.sparkfun.com tutorial and I went through the flashall.sh script. After it finished I noticed the Edison rebooted a couple of times, and after about 10 minutes it prompted that the flash is success. But when I try to boot using putty from windows and "sudo /dev/ttyACM0 115200" cmd from linux i get a blank screen and i dont see any response when I press enter repeatedly. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

Here are the last lines of the boot sequence:

Using U-Boot target: edison-blankcdc

Now waiting for dfu device 8087:0a99

Please plug and reboot the board

Flashing IFWI

# # ] finished!

Flashing boot partition (kernel)

# # ] finished!

Your board needs to reboot to complete the flashing procedure, please do not unplug it for 2 minutes.

Hi Ash91,

I saw on the tutorial you posted, the following Warning:

WARNING: Once the command prompt window closes, you will need to wait at least 2 minutes for the installation to complete. The Edison should reset a couple of times to finalize its installation. Do not unplug the Edison! It's probably a good idea to walk away for those 2 minutes.

Have you tried with a different USB port (Not sure if you are using the same PC) or different cables?

I suggest you to re-do the Flashing Process and to try with the Yocto image

If you want to continue with Ubilinux, I suggest you to contact http://www.emutexlabs.com/forum/index EmutexLabs for more appropriate assistance regarding this image.

Kind regards,

Charlie
