I have a pi that i already have an sd card with the os loaded.  Would i be able to either put another partition to the current card, write a new card or how will it work?

Your simplest path is to burn a new SD card with the image from.  http://images.nwdigitalradio.com/downloads/

Installing draws image

Douglas KI7LIK
 

I am stuck.  I have gotten to the point of installing it via command line, but it just keeps saying that the card is a directory.

Here is the command:
dd bs=4M if=draws_beta9.img of=/media/pi/8B6D-99CF

Error:
dd: failed to open '/media/pi/8B6D-99CF': Is a directory

This is after i have downloaded the file and unzipped it.

Thanks,



Douglas

That error message dd is giving you is correct. You can't write an image file to a directory. You need to write an image file to the device representing the flash card.

You want of=/dev/X where "X" is the  name of the device. It could be sdd or mmcblk0. You'll have to ls your /dev directory to know for sure.

Hope this helps.

I changed to the /dev/sdb, when i do a look up for devices, it shows sdb as the the 32 gb device, which what the card is im writing to.  The card in the pi is sixteen gb.  It gives me access denied when i do sdb.

Prefix the command with "sudo".

Make sure the volume on the card is unmounted first.

Re: Installing draws image

Are you saying it's working, or not working?

One more thing... If you're still getting the read-only file system error, then check to see if the physical switch on the side of the SD card is in the write position. If not, then there's your problem.

Re: Installing draws image concerns

Daniel Sohn
 

Hello Douglas & all, 

I may have missed parts of this discussion which will make what I suggest below seem really stupid….

Is there any way you can use a Windows PC or a Mac and an open source SD card formatter and image burner previously known as “Etcher” (.exe or .app)  to format the MicroSD independently of the Pi & DRAWS Hat combination?


It is still an Open Source package.

Before being acquired by Balena and moving into the big time IoT,   ‘Etcher' worked extremely well under both OSs formatting your SDMicro for RPi use and burning whatever OS and App image you want onto it.

BalenaEtcher.app, v 1.5.5 installs and acts exactly like 'Etcher’ did with the exception that during it’s install it wants to access more (most only slightly related) web sites.

Before I use it I’ll go back and eliminate all of those cookies and associated Little Snitch permission settings to see if it still works the same.

You might want to simply not agree to all of the cookies it wants in order to see which, if any, it absolutely needs to load and ask you which device you want to format & burn an image on.

Once Etcher finishes the format, burn and verification of the DRAWS Image (& Compass linux), you remove the SD from your attached SD reader/writer and put it in the RPi., reboot the Pi and follow whatever the latest DRAWS instructions are.

Cheers,  ...dan wl7coo
