Hi mikejames ;
Could you attach a screenshot of what you are getting?
Also, which OS are you using? Did you set the Variable for Java as is suggested in Creating applications with the MCU SDK for the Intel® Edison board | Intel® Developer Zone ? Or did you have another issue/error while installing the MCU SDK?
I followed the instructions as given in the SDK.documentation.
I had to change the setup program to be the latest but after that there were no error messages.
The Edision is up to date as it was setup using the Windows 64 bit integrated installer.
The host OS is Windows 8.1.
Connection (SSH) to the edison works fine (WiFi) and Eclipse gets 3/4 way with its download.
Any idea where we can find out more about the way programs are loaded into the MCU?
As I have no information on what the error message means or what the lib/firmware directory is for I can't make any progress.
After wasting a lot of time - very common given the lack of documentation on the Edison and especially the MCU - I managed to correct the problem.
All I did was install the latest linux image - even though it was the same one I flashed when I started trying to get the MCU SDK to work.
Now I don't get any errors but none of the examples work.
I'm using the mini-breakout board but this shouldn't make a difference when you just ignore the Arduino hardware.
Also I've tried the communication examples and again no errors but nothing happens.
In an effort to get something working I have switched to an Arduino board and a new edison and fresh install of Yocto linux.
I follow the example in the documentation for flashing an LED but when I get to running the script it reports that the files in sys/lib/gpio are missing
when I check the entire gpio directory is missing!
How is this possible - I thought it was part of the Yocto Linux image?
It is now getting on for a working week since I started to try to follow the simple instruction in the MCU documentation.
Note: the same board and same Edison work fine from both Python and C/C++ and flash the LED with no problem.
