Just Getting It Up And Running!

Wed Sep 03, 2014 4:56 am

I'm having troubles getting my new Compute Module up and running without a monitor. I've been following the only three online tutorials (!!) for actually uploading Raspbian to the CM, but get stuck at the make command.
I'm running Debian with network connectivity inside Hyper-V on Windows 8. Call it a noob-ism, but I have two issues:
1. After running the
git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/raspberrypi/tools
cd tools/usbboot
sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0-0-dev

commands, I don't know which directory theses tools were installed in.
2. The make command that follows this provides me with a *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop error. I've tried to lookup make and sudo make commands, and this error, but man! make is a confusing turkey.

Can anyone on here provide me with some guidance? I'd really like to interact with this device.

Thanks!

Could you post a link to the tutorials you've been following? My guess is that either you missed something with git, and the code hasn't downloaded, or you need to cd to a different directory - one that contains a makefile.

Its strange to me, but performing the same instructions, http://www.raspberrypi.org/documentatio ... lashing.md, in Ubuntu work fine.

The make command worked just like the instructions. Debian-no go.

I'm good now.

The make command worked fine for me on Debian.

Yeah, sounds to me like the OP just missed out the 'cd tools/usbboot' step.
