How to create a SD-card with the latest software image
From IGEP - ISEE Wiki
| This How-To was tested IGEP SDK Virtual Machine, but most of the contents are valid also for other GNU/Linux distributions.
There is no guarantee that this will work on other ones.
Create IGEP Firmware bootable SD-card
Start session in IGEP SDK Virtual Machine. The first thing you'll do is download the latest firwmare from ISEE site.
- Select Products -> Processor Boards
- Click on your processor board product.
- Click on Software tab
- Click on IGEP Firmware
- Select Download icon.
Once the file is downloaded you can create bootable SD-Card, under Linux, untar the IGEP
tar jxf igep_firmware-yocto-*.tar.bz2 cd igep_firmware-yocto-*
Insert a SD-Card media and use the igep-media-create script to copy the firmware to SD-Card media.
./igep-media-create -–mmc <mmc> --image <image file> --machine
<mmc> - is the SD-Card device of your computer.
<image file> - is the file that contains bootloader, kernel and rootfs image.
<machine> - is the IGEP Processor Board. Available options are:
- igep0020 - For IGEP v2 Processor Board
- igep0030 - For IGEP COM MODULE Processor Board
- igep0032 - For IGEP COM PROTON Processor Board
For example, assuming the SD-card device takes '/dev/sdf' and you have an IGEPv2 board ('igep0020'), type
./igep-media-create --mmc /dev/sdf --machine igep0020 --image demo-image-sato-igep00x0.tar.bz2
For example, assuming the SD-card device takes '/dev/sdb' and you have an IGEP COM MODULE ('igep0030') and speed up flash write without verify, type
./igep-media-create --mmc /dev/sdb --machine igep0030 --image demo-image-sato-igep00x0.tar.bz2 --skip-nandtest
These methods should give you a bootable SD-card.
Booting IGEP device and login/connect methods
Insert the bootable SD-card media into the micro-SD card socket of IGEP device and power on it. This should result in a running system with Sato graphical desktop root filesystem built by Yocto.
If you want login in/connect to the system, you have several options:
- Serial debug link, you should just plug serial cable to your computer
- Ethernet, you should assign an IP in the range 192.168.5.[2-254] and connect to target using a SSH client and connecting to 192.168.5.1
- Wifi, connect to IGEP_xx network, a dynamic IP should be assigned in your host and you can sign into the target connecting to 192.168.6.1
- USB ethernet gadget, connect a IGEP device to USB port of your computer, dynamic IP should be assigned in your host and you can sign into the target connecting to 192.168.7.1 o (if available) Graphical interface on plugged DVI/TFT display and USB Keyboard in IGEP device
The root password is empty, so to log in type 'root' for the user name and hit 'Enter' at the Password prompt: (empty password) and you should be in.
Then, you could play and fun with IGEP board.
For example, you could flash the latest software image into internal FLASH memory ( How to flash the latest software image )
