I can't get the rpi2-version to work, I have tried twice now and got the same error both times. The first thing that happens is that N00BS warns me that this os may not work on my revision of raspberry pi, but the "installation" continues anyway. After a couple of minutes I get an error from mkfs that reads:
"Error creating file system
mkfs.fat: warning - lowercase labels might not work properly with DOS or Windows
mkfs.fat: failed whilst writing reserved sector
mkfs.fat 3.0.26 (2014-03-07)"
After this I just get a black screen with a red square in the top right, and the green led on the raspberry flashes 7 times, stops, flashes 7 times, stops...

Unfortunately I don't have another Micro-SD-card to try with but I did a complete format of it, and it has been working fine with raspbian.

Hi Jay, glad to see you have a rpi 2 too :) I tested on Samsung and transcend and few other 16 and 32g SD cards. What is yours?

I'm using a Sandisk 8GB card. It was the only MicroSD card I had at home (and I found it in an old Nintendo DS-flashcart), my old Pi was an old Model B so I have lots of ordinary SD-cards but really need to get more MicroSD ones!

Will try and get another MicroSD card tomorrow!

By the way, the first "warning"-message I get directly after I select to install recalboxOS within NOOBS says:
"Warning: incompatible Operating System(s) detected. The following OSes aren't supported on this revision of Raspberry Pi and may fail to boot or function correctly:
recalboxOS"

Update available, it should be ok, but save your work before updating please.

I am having the same issue with the new Raspberry Pi and cannot get it to work. Have tried numerous methods and different cards and the only think I can to even try to work is NOOBS but it gets to a point where it says that the operating system is incompatible ...i have tried installing it anyway and no joy. PLEASE HELP!! Its my first foray into the Raspberry Pi and I dont want to have to give up on it!

OK big issue here.

Just to be sure you downloaded the recalboxOS-v3.1.0-rpi2-beta.zip ?
The incompatible message is nothing. It's just the noobs that checks infos i did not provide, that is not the issue here.
The real issue is that message specifying

Code: Select all

Error creating file system
mkfs.fat: warning - lowercase labels might not work properly with DOS or Windows
mkfs.fat: failed whilst writing reserved sector
mkfs.fat 3.0.26 (2014-03-07)
I'll work on that but it's so weird i cannot reproduce it...

I actually checked twice that I downloaded the correct version yesterday :D

I get of work in about 3 hours, will drop by the store and buy a new MicroSD-card then and report back when I have tried with that.

By the way DigitalLumberjack, do you have any 8GB card to try with? Perhaps it's trying to make a filesystem that is to big for the 8GB card or something like that? Is it possible to get a terminal within NOOBS to see what the install-script is doing?

Re: recalboxOS - emulation platform for RPi and RPi2

I'm in the weird zone.

I tried with a 8gb sd card. It made the same thing you described to me, and i had dmesg telling me that it was the writes on the sd card that returned errors.
Then i tried formatted the sd, installed Noobs 1.3.12 Lite, it made exactly the same thing. But when i rebooted, it reformatted the corrupted sd card, and now, everything works fine on my SD card...
Noobs and recalboxOS install well.

The real problem is that now, i cannot reproduce !

EDIT : Yes i can reproduce. It looks like a driver issue with the sdcard...

Sounds really odd, but the positive thing (for me atleast) is that it sounds like a bigger card is a way around the problem? :)

It could be, i'm impatient to see that.
But the real issue is on noobs right now. I'm reporting the bug on github.

Could you both try with Noobs 1.3.12 (the last version) on your non working sd and tell me if that works ?

If it doesn't could you report your sdcard version on this issue ?

Should I just try and install Raspbian using noobs? I can try tonight with this problematic card!

I'm using Sandisk 64GB formatted as FAT32 under Windows using guiformatter. downloaded recalboxOS-v3.1.0-rpi2-beta.zip, copied the files to the root of my card, boot it up and noobs came up. selected both recalboxOS & openelec, after the rainbow screen nothing happens, and monitor doesn't detect any signal (pi is on). selected just recalboxOS, installed ok, and after the rainbow screen it's the same.

so how do I get any logs?

Could you try to add

Code: Select all

config_hdmi_boost=4
hdmi_force_hotplug=1
hdmi_drive=2
in the config.txt file in the boot partition (fat32)

And if it doesn't work could you try to add

Code: Select all

 hdmi_safe=1
Edit :
Oh yeah and don't select openelec for now please.

recalbox installed just fine on my newly bought 16GB Transcend MicroSD-card! Yay!

Gonna make some tests with NOOBS on the old card soon, I'm just gonna have to try a psx game or two first :)

You can log in as root with the password recalboxroot, and the roms should be placed in /recalbox/share/roms/<system>

I have scp:ed my roms so far with the latest version - but I just checked and I can see recalbox on my network and copy roms over that way aswell!

I just tried this and got the exact same problem as with your rpi2-recalbox-image on this card. So it's definitely a noobs-problem!

and together with

but no go. So I had a look at my monitor's specs. it's a prolink portable usb monitor, PRO1301WE (pretty nifty monitor IMO, runs on USB!). And discovered that while it uses HDMI, it can only accept DVI signal. It's display options are:

Code: Select all

1 MAC 640x480 60 Hz
2 VESA 720x400 60 Hz
3 SVGA 800x600 56 Hz
4 SVGA 800x600 60 Hz
5 XGA 1024x768 60 Hz
6 WXGA 1366x768 60 Hz
User manual: http://www.prolink2u.com/download/um/um ... 5.2012.pdf


So I used this settings in config.txt (didn't exist in your zip file, so I created one) based from http://elinux.org/RPiconfig#Video

Code: Select all

# Uncomment if you get no picture on HDMI for a default "safe" mode
hdmi_safe=1

# Uncomment if an HDMI display is not detected and composite is being output.
hdmi_force_hotplug=1

# Uncomment to force a specific HDMI mode (this will force VGA).
#hdmi_group=1   CEA
#hdmi_group=2   DMT
#hdmi_mode=4    640x480    60 Hz
#hdmi_mode=81   1366x768   60 Hz
#hdmi_mode=86   1366x768          Reduced blanking
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=4

#hdmi_drive=1 for DVI mode
#hdmi_drive=2 for HDMI mode
hdmi_drive=1

# Uncomment to increase signal to HDMI, if you have interference, blanking, or
# no display.
config_hdmi_boost=4
Rainbow screen shows (with a red dot at the top-right side, not sure what that means), and noobs also was displayed on screen. Monitor displayed DVI 640x480. Then blank. Tried all hdmi_mode that I commented, all no go :lol:

So what went wrong? Any advice? Is there any way of getting a list of modes that my monitor accepts? (I'm thinking of using raspbian or something, and input some command in terminal? No idea really)
