GoPiGo boot - no green WiFi light but WiFi enabled, can't connect


#21

USB plugged into Pi. WiFi SSID came up. Connected to it from a Win10 laptop. Opened Chrome, went to 10.10.10.10. Got the same screen, “(PI ONLY)” in the upper left corner, pushbuttons for “Start coding in Bloxter” and “Learn more about Bloxter.”


#22

Oh right, it gets in this weird mode …
Can you enter directly http://10.10.10.10/python ?


#23

That works. I get

ls: cannot access ‘/dev/spi*’: No such file or directory


#24

Thanks @woody

We’re currently looking into getting a fix to you. We’ll be as fast as possible.

Thanks. I’ll be away from my desk (and the GoPiGo) until the end of the week.

@woody
I know you’re away but you’ll get this when you come back.
I’m interested in getting a copy of your SD card for better debugging.

For this, you would need to download Win32DiskImager and read in your SD card. This will create a .img file on your computer. Are you able to zip it and put it for download somewhere ?

Other option would be to mail your actual SD card in. However an electronic copy is fine for debugging.

Can do, when I get back home, but the SD card is one that I bought from Dexter just a couple of weeks ago. Version 2.1.2, if memory serves.


#28

Thank you for doing this.

Let us know when you’ve got the time to do it and send us a link :slight_smile: .


#29

Here ya go. 8 GB. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/hfzh0hs6oc1nes3/AAByJNeVw4EPgEwS5Y42ndc7a?dl=0


#30

Scratch that. Do you have someplace I can send (FTP?) an 8 GB IMG file?


#31

Do you need an IMG file, or can I just zip and send the files on the SD card?


#32

Hello again @woody
Yes we would need the IMG file, so we can boot up a robot with it.
On the first boot, there’s a bunch of stuff that runs automatically, and something went wrong with your robot. This is the only surefire way of knowing what.
That said, I’ll have another DexterOS_update for you in a couple of hours.

Thanks for your help on debugging this,
Cleo


#33

Why didn’t dropbox work? Usually that’s the way we handle this file transfer.


#34

I don’t have 8 GB of free space in Dropbox.


#35

But, duh, I have 8GB free in OneDrive. Use this link

#36

Hey, I just drop off here, I got a gopigo3 last week and got the exactly same issue, would like to watch the issues fixed here to see if it can help me as well.

Thanks!


#37

I got it off OneDrive, thanks! (and good old OneDrive, it always has free space :slight_smile: )

I’ll be working on it tomorrow hopefully.
Cleo


#38

(I’ve since upgraded Dropbox, but yep OneDrive can be, uh, occasionally useful.)


#39

Any update on this @cleoqc ? I have been having the same issue as well… :confused:

@zhaoyilongblcu
I have an experimental image for you to try. We’re still testing it out (as I cannot reproduce the original problem, it’s a bit of a challenge). If you’re willing to test it out - it cannot harm your hardware in any way, I’ll send you a link.
