Re: Beta Image Available #draws #betaimage

I tried to download the image Wednesday evening and it got to 17% and 24 minutes and 10 seconds and stopped for over 25 minutes before I killed the download.  Thought you would want to know

A Beta image is available for download at

(This location may change.)


Unzip the file which will create draws_beta2.img

Use an SD Card of at least 8 GB and copy the img file with an image burner like Etcher or dd under Linux.


Insert into Raspberry Pi (with DRAWS HAT)

Boot up.  It will expand the file system to fill your SD card.

User: pi / nwcompass  but it will autologin and present GUI.


Run raspi-config to set timezone and enable ssh and vnc if desired.

If the GPS antenna is installed:

sudo systemctl enable gpsd

sudo systemctl start gpsd
sudo systemctl restart chrony


Explore the menu system and desktop Icons.  (The Direwolf menu item is broken.)

To start and stop direwolf use:

sudo systemctl start direwolf
sudo systemctl stop direwolf

Application support should be directed to the author of each application.  Use Raspbian support for OS questions.  General questions can be asked in this group. (Check Wiki as well)

There are many applications installed, you can see the install scripts in /home/pi/n7nix and an install log in /var/log

More information will be provided, but getting this out for those who are waiting.

A few commands:

gpsmon # Check the GPS

chronyc sources # Check the NTP clock
sensors  # Check sensors, including the input voltage if using the HAT 12 V input.
