RPI MD installation issues
« on: October 15, 2015, 02:05:29 am »
Hi!

I'm trying to set up a Raspberry PI 2 as a MD. I downloaded the Jessie SD image and installed it on the SD card, and when I booted it, it started the initial setup ok. The RPI announced itself, and my orbiter on my computer asked me if I was going to use it. Once I clicked OK, the RPI rebooted and began its setup process.

This is where it failed

When the RPI rebooted, it worked through the initialization process, but it failed with a bunch of MySQL errors saying access was denied for root@192.168.80.132. It then stopped completely.

Trying the Trusty image seemed to get to the point where it was downloading and installing packages, but, after it installed a bunch of packages, the screen went blank, and that's where it is now. Pressing keys on the keyboard does not bring the display back.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there a trick to getting it to work?

Hi Rick!

What is the date of the jessie image that you used?  It sounds like the /usr/pluto/bin/Disked_Setup.sh script did not execute on your core when the MD was created.  You can try running that manually on your core and then booting the pi again.  This *should* have happened automatically.
 
Don't bother with the trusty image unless you're looking to do development, there's no video capabilities there atm.

I used 2015-10-14, which is the one available for download on the LMCE Wiki...

I will re-load the Jessie image and see if it works when I run Disked_setup.sh. When do I run that? Can I run it now and it will work when the Pi is reinstalled, or do i have to run it after First Boot?

(I am still new at LMCE!)

There's lots to learn about LMCE!  We'll try to help where we can.  Also keep in mind that the rpi stuff is still under development.  Although I have 3 in my production system now.

First make sure your core is up to date (apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade).  Then run the script on the core before you attempt to boot the rpi again, it *should* grant all the permissions for the databases.  If you boot afterwards and still have the same issue then I'd suggest meeting me in irc to some real-time troubleshooting.
