Create a bootable microSD from tarballs
A Linux PC is required, with a Windows PC use the disk image method.
- Download the first microSD partition contents from:
- Download the second microSD partition contents from:
- Format a microSD with gparted (read more) and mount it
- Download the binaries
- Untar the binaries to the microSD with the following commands:
$ tar -xvjpSf boot.tar.bz2 -C /media/$USER/boot
$ sudo tar -xvjpSf rootfs.tar.bz2 -C /media/$USER/rootfs
- unmount the microsd and use it to boot on your Arietta
Create a bootable microSD from disk image
- Download the zipped disk image from arietta.img.zip
- Uncompress its contents to obtain arietta.img file
- Insert a microSD and write arietta.img on it using:
- On Windows: Win32 Disk Imager
- On Linux: sudo dd if=arietta.img of=/dev/sdX where sdX is the microSD device (more info...)
- On Mac: sudo dd if=arietta.img of=/dev/diskN where diskN is the microSD device (more info..)
- For Arietta G25 with 256 MB of RAM rename boot256.bin in boot.bin in the first partition mounted on /boot
- The image contains just the first two partitions (boot and rootfs) and uses just the first 1.0 GB. To add more
space create a third partition to add in /etc/fstab or enlarge the rootfs partition.
- gcc (C compiler)
- g++ (C++ compiler)
- iw wpasupplicant
- Codiad (In browser Ascii editor)
- Shell-in-a-box (In browser ssh client)
- Minicom (Serial terminal)
Read the tutorials page to know how to do create the microSD contents starting from sources.
Getting started with this image
- Insert the microSD on your PC (Windows, Linux or Mac)
- Edit the file wpa_supplicant.conf saved on the first microSD partition and insert your WiFi Access Point name and Password
- Boot Arietta with the microSD
- Open a session from a on a PC wired on the same LAN with Bonjour installed.
If you are using a WiFi adapter WIFI-2
edit the file /boot/wpa_supplicant.conf
