Installing On Edison vis The Cube


#1

Hi I’m trying to install Flytos on Intel Edison via Pixhawk 2 The Cube, I have followed the instructions here http://docs.flytbase.com/docs/FlytOS/GettingStarted/EdisonGuide.html#edison-guide

and dowloaded the image and installed it from terminal on Mac, however when it reboots I just get EDISON-00-00 Wifi network I can’t connect tom I’m not getting the Flytos one as suggested in the docs

Do I have to flash the Linux image thats also listed in the downloads too ?

Hi,
sorry for the incorrect detail in doc.
You should get to see the WiFi network as ‘EDISON-XY-ZW’, with X, Y, Z, W parameters depending on your hardware.

You can safely connect to this network, via the password provided in the docs.


#3

I still could not connect via that password, can you just confirm what it is


#4

password should be: flytos12#, as mentioned over here.


#5

Ok logged in now just trying to work out how to activate this as the Edison is in the Pixhawk 2 and the Wifi is in AP, I’m using a Mac so don’t fully get what I need to do, I can’t get to the flytconsle but can get to the homepage and logs and its saying it can’t fine internet connection


#6

Please follow this guide to configure your Edison to Client mode, essentially connecting it to your home/office router.

You should be able to reach flytconsole even without internet. Can you please post a screenshot of your home page.


#7

Hi I cant get to console but if i just go to the ip address i get this


#8

Can you open the log page and post your runlog and startup log?

See the attached LogLog.rtf (40.1 KB)

Hey @hundleton1,

Can you please share the runlog as well. You seem to have shared only the startup log.

Hi the run log is at the bottom of the startup log I posted but it’s this

Oh! I understand you issue now.

Sorry for the inconvenience. We have not updated our edison image since it got discontinued.
You have a much older version of FlytOS.

Download the latest Edison FlytOS debian from here.
Run this command on Edison:

sudo dpkg -i <path to above downloaded file>/flytosv1.5-6e.deb

Once done, reboot the device and now FlytOS should work.


#13

Can you just walk me though where to run that,

So when I installed it I’m using Mac, I did the install through terminal, do I place the file in the same location I did the install from then navigate there in terminal and run that command ?


#14

No.

Can you ssh into Edison? Or connect to the device via its USB interface?

To ssh into Edison:

  • Make sure Edison and mac are connected to same wifi network
  • Open a terminal in your mac and run this command
    • ssh flytos@
  • Type ‘flytos’ when it asks for password.

Hi, when I’m trying to SSH in I’m getting this and its not accepting the password
