Since linux seems to be the preferred OS for the ODrive could I use a Raspberry Pi Or Beaglebone (I have a couple of both) to connect to the Odrive?
One day we will have it working well on Windows too ;D
But yeah, while I haven’t tried it, I believe that an Rpi or BB should work with the Linux instructions.
Great, That’s my project for tonight!
As I am going through the setup guide I was able to download the ODriveFirmware. without a hitch. But for the rest of the prerequisites I get when I type
sudo apt-get install https://launchpad.net/~terry.guo/+archive/gcc-arm-embedded
Unable to locate package gcc-arm-none-eabi
Unless you want to compile the firmware on the BB or RPi for a specific reason, I would suggest that you compile and flash the firmware from your PC.
Then you just do the USB commands from the BB and RPi.
the parameter to apt-get is always a package name, never a URL
to install a package from launchpad, you can do a couple of things
create a new source repo and then install the package
download the specific .deb package and install that.
the URL you list is something I don’t have permission to access, which makes it a little hard to help you
It’s possible that the cross compiler isn’t available to run on the pi
but on my pi, I can find the package
do an apt-get update before you try to install any packages
OK. I decided to punt. But I seem to be missing a step when flashing the firmware. I run “make gdb” and also “make gdb -f” what am I missing? It was working before I am just having old timers disease.
I don’t want to sound dense, but I was looking all over the getting started readme and actually all over, Where is that instruction? Maybe It will help me later.
which is part of the Firmware readme: https://github.com/madcowswe/ODriveFirmware#flashing-the-firmware
I see it now. My eye just kept jumping down to the next section. I must be losing my mind.
I was looking for an embarrassed emoji but could not find one.
Thanks for taking the time.
