I recently bought a new BrickPi, and went through all of the Getting Started steps. I am using an OS image from Dexter Industries. The ONLY thing I did to it was expand the OS partition using raspi-config. Didn’t make any other changes to the image.
Now, I am trying to run some of the simple samples on the device, both Python and Scratch, but nothing is happening. No error messages, no responses from sensors. No motor movements (I have a battery plugged in to BrickPi for the motors).
There doesn’t seem to be an diagnostic tools for BrickPi on the OS. Only tools for some other Dexter devices.
These sensors and motors DO work when attached to a Mindstorms NXT device.
So, it’s looking like I might have gotten a bad BrickPi? Unless someone can come up with something I might have missed.
