Yocto Linux SD Card Contains Different Files Than It Should

Jump to solution

Hi everybody,

I am new in Galileo. I have Intel Galileo gen 1, and I am following this steps https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/library/galileo-getting-started IoT - Intel® Galileo Board Get Started Guide | Intel® Software. I am currently stucked at step 3 about preparing MicroSD Card. I have download and extract Yocto linux image as link in this step https://software.intel.com/en-us/get-started-galileo-windows-step1 IoT - Step 1: Make a bootable micro SD card | Intel® Software. The image file is iot-devkit-prof-dev-image-galileo-20160606.direct. I also has write the image to MicroSD card using Win32 Disk Imager. But after the write process completed, the tutorial said that MicroSD should contains the following files:

  • boot
  • firmware
  • win-driver
  • bzImage

But my MicroSD card only has boot folder and bzImage file. And the MicroSD capacity become 51MB left. You can see the screenshot below. I use MicroSD HC1 8GB.

Please help.

Hi yllumi,

Right now, do not worry about partitions in the memory card (you can check later another thread/s on this). The real problem is the card contents, which is not the one that should, as you pointed out.

Try with some previous .direct file ... I've used iot-devkit-201510010757-mmcblkp0-galileo.direct and it worked (not completely for Arduino sketches, though) but right now I'm not able to find an Intel page to download it from...

Several options to go on:

a) Intel repairs the current .direct file (please check it has an error by writing again the SD card)

b) Get an older .direct file (I didn't find any, I'll post link in case I find one)

c) If you are going to develop under the Arduino IDE

c.1) Download the so called uclibc based image from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24355/Intel-Galileo-Board-Software-Package?product=78906 Download Intel® Galileo Board Software Package, the file https://downloadmirror.intel.com/24355/eng/SDCard.1.0.8.tar.bz2 https://downloadmirror.intel.com/24355/eng/SDCard.1.0.8.tar.bz2

c.2) unzip-untar (7z does)

c.3) format (FAT) SD card

c.4) copy the files in the SD card (do not use Disk Imager, just copy)

HTH,

Fernando.

Hi Fernando,

Thank you for your reply. Even before yesterday the Yocto Image download url is dead. Yesterday I check again and it is now available, but with that problem mention above. Today I check the download URL again and the filename (with date release) still the same that I assume there isn't any changes yet. I also has tried to use Arduino IDE and it works well. But I need to use Intel XDK IoT Edition for my writing project. How can I report this problem to Intel by the way?

Update: I have found the download URL for the previous version of image you said, from this thread . Now I have the file downloaded from here http://downloadmirror.intel.com/25384/eng/iot-devkit-201510010757-mmcblkp0-galileo.direct.xz http://downloadmirror.intel.com/25384/eng/iot-devkit-201510010757-mmcblkp0-galileo.direct.xz and it suites like in tutorial

Thank you.

Hi,

 

 

If you need to report a broken link just tag any of the Intel agents that monitor the forum with a description of the broken link. You can also report broken links by posting in this community thread /message/343929 https://communities.intel.com/message/343929 or by creating a service ticket in https://customercare.intel.com/?lang=en-US https://customercare.intel.com/?lang=en-US .

 

 

Remember to post both the time at which you tried to do the download and the link that's failing.

 

 

-Sergio
