My son and I just got a basic GoPiGo and are stuck. We build it (easy), hooked it up to the computer (a Mac, easy), did the WiFi set-up (a little more challenging - it took several tries for the GoPi to hang onto my home WiFi and get an IP address, then it kept dropping it - or being dropped - so it took several tries to successfully disconnect the ethernet cable, but we finally got it!)
Now we’re stuck running the first basic test. When we go to the GoPi’s desktop and click the “Test and Troubleshoot” icon, the little black terminal pops up for like 2 seconds, and then winks out. It’s not behind the main browser window or hidden anywhere else; it’s just shutting itself off instantly. I’ve tried opening it 20 times and it won’t stay open (and it’s so quick that I can’t even tell if there is an error message).
So we’re not even getting to point where some window asks us if we want to run a test.
We’ve looked i the other folders on the GoPi but can’t find anything that looks like an alternative way to run the test, so we’re just kinda’ stuck. Help.
BTW - According to the little “Version” icon, we’re running GoPi software version 6.6. And on the Mac we’re running 10.11.1 and Firefox 42.0.
Any help would be appreciated.
