rc_ files

There are a bunch of rc_ files in /usr/bin that do various interesting things with the board.
Is there source code available for these?

Regards,

Thanks, Robert. I’ve now come across a weird problem when trying to clone the repository onto the board. I’ve ssh’d onto the board, and run
git clone https://github.com/StrawsonDesign/Robotics_Cape_Installer.git

and it comes back with

Cloning into ‘Robotics_Cape_Installer’…
fatal: unable to access ‘https://github.com/StrawsonDesign/Robotics_Cape_Installer.git/’: Failed to connect to github.com port 443: Connection refused

Any ideas why the connection is refused? (It’s not refused on my main computer.)

can you ping 8.8.8.8 or google.com ?

Regards,

Yes no problem there. I can also ping github.com
I suspect it has to do with the https: part, but otherwise no clue.

make sure the clock is synced:

https relies on having the clocks correct..

Regards,

Good thought, but unfortunately it didn’t work. Any other ideas?

apparently having other problems with https, Is this a clue?

Huh, apparently I can ping and traceroute anywhere, but wget times out (both http and https) so It’s a networking issue.

If you are having problems with https, try http

git clone http://github.com/StrawsonDesign/Robotics_Cape_Installer.git

Apparently it's a local problem, went to another network and things worked fine. So... nevermind! :slight_smile:

I have experiance in using beaglebone black.
Iam currently using beaglebone blue.
Iam stuck with the image write process of BBBL.
Iam following the instructions in the webpage http://elinux.org/Beagleboard:BeagleBoneBlack_Debian#Flashing_eMMC . Eventhough Iam not able to complete the booting process.
Iam not getting any videos in youtube. Is therre any videos available for the write process? If so, can you please share the video?

Nothing in your current post appears relevant to the subject "rc_
files". If you are reporting a different problem, you should learn to
create a new thread for it.

    I have experiance in using beaglebone black.
    Iam currently using beaglebone blue.
    Iam stuck with the image write process of BBBL.

Eventhough Iam not able to complete the booting process.

  The first step is to NOT use a flasher image, but to just boot directly
from the SD card... Once you have confirmed that the SD card image operates
correctly (including possibly adding any custom software), THEN convert it
to a flasher, boot, and wait... Also, you must then remove the SD card as
any reboot will just make it repeat the eMMC flashing operation.

    Iam not getting any videos in youtube. Is therre any videos available
for the write process? If so, can you please share the video?

  What is a video going to show?
Write image to SD card (5+ minutes of watching a progress bar)
Boot using SD card
Edit specified file to turn image into a flasher
Reboot
Watch device flash the eMMC (which would be 10+ minutes of watching a
particular blink pattern)
Remove SD card
Reboot

  By the time one has edited out the over 15 minutes of watching progress
bars/blinky lights, there isn't much left to make a video out of...

Just grab the BBBL-*.img.xz

https://rcn-ee.net/rootfs/bb.org/testing/2017-05-14/iot/

Use etcher.io

https://etcher.io/

to write to a microSD..

Stick it in and boot, wait for the cylon led and finally it shutting down..

Regards,

ya…everything what you said are happenening.
But the new image is not written into the board.

After the cyclon led stops, the default storage of 39.5MB partition is opening. is that mean new image written into the board?

Try this https://github.com/beagleboard/beaglebone-blue/wiki/Flashing-firmware

Yes, after the cylon led stops, and the board shut's down.

If you remove the microSD and power up, you should see a flash drive
pop up.. When the image is running
