It's likely (absent better data) that the problem here is that the CM and CM3 have "only" 4GB of eMMC flash on them. That isn't enough for a full Raspbian install.

There are a number of solutions... The simplest is to switch to the NEC "CM3-16", which is a custom, but generally available CM3 with 16GB of eMMC flash on it. Other solutions will require a carrier board set up for this situation. As much eMMC flash as desired can be put on the carrier board and a CM3L will boot from that. Alternatively, an SD slot can be put on the carrier and used as a boot device for a CM3L. Other alternatives are to set the boot from USB OTP bit and boot over the USB bus from ones choice of device. This would also work with a CM3 if the on-board eMMC flash doesn't have a bootable image.

And, by the bye, there is an entire forum here devoted to Compute Module issues. Detailed advice can probably be had by moving this thread there.

is this a formal request to move this thread to the compute module section :?: :mrgreen:
Normally its done with the report button, but okay, as long as you don't start a second thread about the same subject.

Moving the thread to Compute Module.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends lxde xorg raspberrypi-ui-mods rpi-chromium-mods

The basic solution that worked for me was to install Rasbian Stretch Lite .

And carried out the normal installation of x-org ,xserver and everything went well with space to spare after all the intallation .

Return to “Compute Module”
