The Edison l_iot_dev_kit refuses Ubuntu 15.10 install

Jump to solution

Thank you in advance. There is some urgency here as the IoT Roadshow/Edison Hackathon is this weekend.

After downloading, unpacking and running the installer found on the https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/library/edison-getting-started getting started page (choosing Linux as the OS), I am turned down at the 'Prerequisites' step (step 2) of the installer. The message in the installer window:

Unsupported OS

 

Detected operating system is not supported. Supported operating systems for this release are:
  • CentOS* 4, 5, 6, 7
  • Debian* 3.1, 3.1R3, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, 7
  • Ubuntu* 5.10, 6.06, 6.10, 7.04, 7.10, 8.04, 8.10, 9.04, 9.10, 10.04, 10.10, 11.04, 11.10, 12.04, 12.10, 13.04, 13.10, 14.04, 14.10, 15.04

I am using Ubuntu 15.10 which was released last month already. Does anyone know of an override? None of the options under --help support that particular override.

Hi Timtro,

Have you tried to install each of the IDEs(Arduino, Eclipse and XDK) individually? You can also download the Flash Tool Lite separately and/or you can use the flashall script to flash the image.

You can find all the download links in here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads IoT - Intel® Edison Board Download | Intel® Developer Zone

First, start with downloading the Flash Tool Lite (Manual - https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/flash-tool-lite-user-manual IoT - Flash Tool Lite User Manual | Intel® Developer Zone). For this you will need to also download the http://downloadmirror.intel.com/25384/eng/edison-iotdk-image-280915.zip Release 2.1 Yocto* complete image

Available IDEs: https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/software/ide IoT - IDEs | Intel® Developer Zone

Let us know if this works.

Regards,

Charlie

Thanks for the tip. I'm so new, I didn't even know exactly what was in the package, let alone the fact of the separate availability of each of the components. Wish I had known before wiping my Arch install :S

Just edit pset/install.cab using vim. Make sure to launch vim in binary mode : vim -b install.cab

replace instances of 15.04 by 15.10. Worked for me.
