Astro Pi initial Setup

Sat Sep 30, 2017 9:01 pm

Hi

This is a noobs question so please be patient with me, I have 3d printed a astro pi and build the unit using a kit from cpc. however it did not come with a sd card so i have installed a new install of raspbian jessie. I have been following the instructions from the astro-pi-flight-case tutorial, but it deos not mension what version of raspbian i should use. Also, at the bottom it says about installing some overlays but when i try i get the following error :

Code: Select all

not sure what is going on, any help would be appreciated.

The Astro Pi kits, for this year's challenge, will be using this NOOBS image which is based on Jessie. This will give you working push buttons out of the box.
