    That helped me getting Edison running!

    Fab-Lab.eu

      Getting started:

      Shortest instruction getting Intel Edison up an running without any troubles:
      use Windows, both USB, format Edison drive FAT32, PuTTy on USB Serial Port 115200, upgrade Yocto


      Do NOT go the hard way doing the connection setup via MacOS … drivers on Microsoft Windows are running well and
      you do get easily an PuTTY connection up and running, as stated connect both USB cables!!
      Using Intel Edison Mini Breakout Board:
      J3 - brings USB Serial Port (in my case COM18) connects internal to Edison UART2, this is one you connect with
      PuTTY (serial,115200 Baud) to get a remote console!!
      J16 - brings power and Intel Edison Virtual Com Port (in my case COM17)

      Next make sure you get the latest Edison Yocto image installed on Edison! (as of today version 68)
      Before making an OS upgrade - ensure that the shared Edison volume is formatted FAT32 (factory is FAT only) !
      Before running "reboot ota" ensure the shared Edison drive is safely unmounted from any Windows

       

      you can check version cat /etc/version or configure_edison --version
      I started with build 56, Poky 1.6 Edison (factory) upgraded to build 68

      >>> with these tricks, welcome to the new Intel Edison world!

       

      now you can configure_edison --setup, the option --setup is not present before doing an successful upgrade

      hint: if you are on build >=68 you can activate the Wifi AP mode (see section down) and run the configuration
      via webconsole 192.168.42.1<your Edison IP address>


      Turning Edison Wifi remote SSH on:

      First make sure you have set Wifi and root pwd  running configure_edison --setup
      usb0 on 192,168.x.15 and wlan0 on 192.168.x.y can't be up together link


      to fix: vi /etc/systemd/system/basic.target.wants/network-gadget-init.service
      and change both both occurrences of 192.168.2.15 to 192.168.99.15, reboot!

      >>> with these tricks, welcome to remote access via ssh root@192.168.2.122<your Edison IP address>
      >>> even more you can now access from Edison the WWW - isn't that magic ;-)

          Had been at it for close to 6 hours! This resolved the issue in 6 mins!

          Why, for the love of whatever you hold dear, would anyone think of formatting the Edison partition?

          Thanks a ton for getting this out of the closet.

            For the first part (version):

            root@edison:~# configure_edison --version

            120

             

            For the second part:

            I tried the commands listed in the link:

            ifconfig usb0 down

            ifconfig wlan0 down

            ifconfig wlan0 up

            which disabled usb0

             

            Tried ifconfig and got "lo link ..." "wlan0 Link...". No usb0

             

            Then i tried to ssh into the 192.168.2.13 in putty (while connected to the serial usb)

            Did not work.

             

            Tried to find the network-gadget-init.service

            The only files in the dir are as below:

            cleanjournal.service

            run-postinsts.service

            crashlog.service

            watchdog-sample.service

             

            Not sure what else I can do.

             

             

            and finally the real issue i wanted to resolve:

            Eclipse IDE cannot connect to the board and I cannot even start the blink sketch!

             

             

            edison_screenshot.jpg

             

            I tried right-click on galileo + connect and even that does not work

             

            Any help will be appreciated.
