There are some guides from Intel and all over the Internet that you might find useful. First, check the Edison Audio Setup Guide for general information, probably you’ll need to check this guide more than once. To play music with your Intel Edison you can take a look at this guide http://www.instructables.com/id/Playing-music-with-your-Intel-Edison/, it consists in playing music via external speaker using a USB sound card. There’s also this guide to play audio via Bluetooth using A2DP, https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/play-audio-from-your-intel-edison-via-bluetooth-using-advanced-audio-distribution-profile. About managing files and data from an SD card with your Edison, there’s a lot of information available in the Community, here’s something for you to start https://communities.intel.com/thread/55914.
That all makes sense so far. I can establish bluetooth comms and WiFi. When I get to this stage on the instructables page however, it doesn't seem to work like it should I'm sure I'm missing something:
Step 3: Installing Packages
You need to configure your opkg repository to include the following lines:
src/gz all http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/all src/gz edison http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/all src/gz core2-32 http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/all
Do so by typing:
By typing this above line in, it doesn't seem to automatically configure my opkg repository. Do I need to follow the path and manually enter all of the opkg lines? My WiFi connection is good, so that doesn't seem to be the problem.
Yes, you’ll need to enter those lines by yourself. The command vi /etc/opkg/base-feeds.conf creates or opens (in case it already exists) a file called base-feeds.conf in the /etc/opkg path that you can then edit (vi is a text editor). If you’re not sure how to use VI, check the following guide https://www.cs.colostate.edu/helpdocs/vi.html.
