  • And even the latest image still have a rather old version of libmraa: 0.4.4c-r0 instead of 0.5.2.4

    to update, type : echo “src mraa-upm http://iotdk.intel.com/repos/1.1/intelgalactic” > /etc/opkg/mraa-upm.conf opkg update opkg install libmraa0 (copy and right click into terminal line by line, then enter)

  • I wish I read you comment earlier. That old image was a real pain.

  • I’d like to share my first experience with this kit. It was a big pain in a special place, however, it’s over now. The main problem: this kit is shipped with a rather old and awfully buggy Edison image.

    Mine was “edison-weekly_build_56_2014-08-20_15-54-05”. You can check it in the console: cat /etc/version

    68 is apparently the latest as for now. I got “edison-rel1-maint-weekly_build_16_2014-10-14_14-56-19” with the update.

    With #56, you will always lose the first character when using the console as if it went sleeping and missed the 1st keypress. It was so annoying! With #56, you won’t enjoy programming with Eclipse because 80% of time it just won’t work. That’s why my advice for you is FLASH THE LATEST IMAGE IMMEDIATELY. There could be an error called “Segmentation fault” while using libmraa (for GPIO and other HW). This might be because of an older version of the lib. However, I got it after the lib update as well. With the old image though.

    All in all, it’s worth it. Keep in mind it’s Linux, it’s ever evolving, it’s buggy. So keep updating.

  • The Intel guy showed in his video how to put the LED blink program on it using the Intel-tailored Arduino IDE.

  • You might want to check this design with this cam:
