Cubietruck - Cubieboard3 Cortex A7 Dual-Core with Case. I recently bought a DFRduino Mega kit for 4 motor robot to interface into a project. Thus far I have gotten the DFRduino Mega 2560 V3.0 and Mega IO Expansion/Mega Sensor Shield V2.3 For Arduino Mega up and controlling my Dagu rover 5 chassis with its Dagu 4ch motor controller. What I am having issues with is connecting my Seeedunio Bluetooth Bee to the Mega 2560 through the Sensor Shield to control the whole thing via Android device.

I have tried the different COM ports and RXD/TXD points, but I am not getting any connection with the Bluetooth module. It is getting power, but does not go into the mode for connecting. I have connected this Bluetooth Bee to a Arduino Uno via Seedunino Bees shield before and controlled several digital outputs over Bluetooth via android app without a problem. Am I missing a patching issue on the board or am I programming wrongly? I would like to use COM1 as, if I am understanding correctly COM0 is where the USB serial travels through.

Int Power = 255; Cubieboard arduino mini pc. Cubieboard/FirstSteps. Note: This is the FirstSteps for Cubieboard users. Which is your Cubieboard model? Currently, there are two batches of the Cubieboard developer board available. First batch, sold around August/September 2012. The Cubieboard in this batch has 512MB RAM. Second batch, sold through the Indiegogo campaign (November 2012), Shopify (January 2013), Miniand (January 2013). It is important to identify which batch your Cubieboard is from, because the amount of memory has (currently) to be specified in your system image settings. Unpacking the box The Cubieboard is available in two packages, the Standard package and the Rich package. Cubieboard inventory - Standard package. Cubieboard inventory - Rich package. The Standard package contains (from top left and counter-clockwise): The Cubieboard developer board SATA data cable and SATA power cable USB to DC power cable Cubieboard carton box (not shown) The Rich package contains (from top left and counter-clockwise): Connecting the parts First startup.

Sig(PIPE) me » Blog Archive » Debian testing with 3D and CedarX (via libhybris) howto on CubieTruck (CubieBoard3) I’ve successfully installed from scratch a Debian Testing on my CubieTruck, there is how to get it working. The only thing which doesn’t seems to works, is 3D GL for games… I’ve installed the Lubuntu Server with VGA or HDMI NAND image with live…thing tool. Only to get a proper /dev/nanda bootloader partition, you should do the same, this howto asumes that. 1. Create SD-Card with Lubuntu linaro Just follow this tutorial. You can also chroot on the SD-Card rootfs and install OpenSSH Server. 2. Do a ssh on linaro@your_cubie, password is linaro. 3.

This will erase all the nand, so, do the following. 3.1 Backup mkdir /mnt/{boot,rootfs} mount /dev/nanda /mnt/boot/ mkdir ~/boot/ cp -r /mnt/boot/* ~/boot/ 3.2 Partitions umount /dev/nanda sudo nand-part /dev/nand 32768 'bootloader 131072' 'rootfs 10584064' if you run `sudo nand-part’ you will see something like that at the end : 3.3 Format Reboot, with the SD-Card plugged in, the NAND driver doesn’t support repartition on-the-fly. 4. 4.1 bootloader 4.2 rootfs.

The ULTIMATE NEWB CUBIETRUCK SET-UP thread. Hi everyone, When the Cubietruck first came out there was very little support, the Lubuntu 12.10 operating system was scant and poorly prepared before release, and many of the people around here would give answers for experts, but not for those trying to learn. For many, getting the CT up and running was an absolutely frustrating experience. This thread took the weeks of trial and error and got things up and running in about 10 minutes for the average newbie. This thread is for the original Lubuntu 12.10 OS mentioned above - and ONLY for the CubieTruck (though some of these may work on the others). These are the quickest fixes to get the machine up and going if you require to boot from the NAND on occasion (or the microSD version if you must). HOWEVER, thanks to the impressive work of kava93 to make things easy and exciting for everyone, Cubieuntu is now available for the CubieTruck with very significant improvements in just about every way - and just in time for the holidays.

Bcmdhd :x 3. Raspberry Pi ou Cubieboard. Gblog3 | . Work in progress: Following this tutorial there is still problem with automatic network dhcp and clock at boot time, until installing a full distro desktop. I still need to find the needed packages to resolve this without installing the full distro Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy on Cubieboard2 In my case, I start from a previously installed system with u-boot and kernel, this make things easier. We take for our example: * /arc as archive directory * /mnt directory where the (futur) new system will be installed. In a console, as root user, create a directory /arc, in which you will get ubuntu-core 13.10 beta2 tarball. sudo bash mkdir /arc; cd /arc wget Creation of base system We then unarchive this ubuntu core system base, and copy kernel modules, firmwares, loading modules file (for example for mali driver or if you didn’t hard linked network module(s) in the kernel).
