I'm using Linux Mint 17 live CD to upload image file into the module. I followed every step (as far as I could) on the main website: http://www.raspberrypi.org/documentatio ... lashing.md
Instruction does say that I need a Linux system, but does not specify what version, brand, smell or taste.
Problem #1.[Solved] At the step where you compile the software (make), it failed, complaining about not able to find stdint.h.
It was easy fix. If anyone has the same problem, just run sudo apt-get install build-essential.
Problem #2. when I launch ./rpiboot, it says Waiting for BCM2835 ... and just stays there doing nothing.
I've connected Board to computer, Jumper is set to Enable USB boot, cycle the power and nothing changes. Tried connecting to different USB port on my laptop - still nothing.
J4 - in Enable Position,
Board is connected to computer via USB Slave Port J15
Red Power LED is on,
Green ACT LED is on (not blinking).
Any ideas what to do next?
(Throwing brand new board (£128) out of the window is not a valid suggestion)
