Mathematica download?

Mon Nov 25, 2013 1:03 pm

Can anyone suggest a way to download the Mathematica .deb package using a web browser?

The reasoning behind this is that at home it will take ages to download while where I am now will take much less time.

The package is at: http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/p ... am-engine/

You should be able to install it using dpkg:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i wolfram-engine_10.0.0+2013112003_armhf.deb

Try:

http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/p ... _armhf.deb

Then one method to install it is:

sudo dpkg -i wolfram-engine_10.0.0+2013112003_armhf.deb
sudo apt-get install -f --fix-missing

Awesome, for some reason apt-get fails after a long while, I'm going to curl it.

I downloaded wolfram-engine and the only thing that shows up is Wolfram Language.

Typing in /user/bin/Mathematica returns a message saying no such file. ???????

Help!

Try all lower case (and no "e" in "usr"):

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/mathematica

How do you do that? On my Pi, it said memory was low and aborted the install (I use an 8gb SD card with only a few python programs and RPi.GPIO and Numpy installed)

Thanks, I removed wolfram-engine and reloaded it and everything works fine now!

This command sticks the file in your local filesystem.

curl http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/p ... _armhf.deb > wolfram-engine_10.0.0+2013112003_armhf.deb

then you can unpackage it using the commands in the previous post. You may also want to try:
df -k

which tells you how much space you have left in each filesystem.

Most likely that's your issue, you can use the raspi-config menu system to extend the root filesystem to use all your card. Whichever directory you are in, you can check which file system it is associated with by typing:
df -k .

(don't forget the trailing dot ".") and it will tell you the info for the specific file system.

Good luck!
