Well I'm back at home off my boat now and I didn't manage to get Debian 9 onto my BBB there, it's still running Debian 7.
I still have remote access to the BBB from here at home so, if anyone wants to help and needs answers to questions I can go and take a look. The Debian 9 image I was trying was this one (expanded of course) :- bone-debian-9.3-iot-armhf-2018-01-28-4gb.img.xz As noted in my previous postings here this image successfully self-installed automatically on another (I thought older) Debian 7 BBB that I had. When inserted in the BBB I want to update it did nothing on rebooting. I also tried powering up with the 'boot' button held down but that did no good either, it simply did nothing. I tried running the script:- /opt/scripts/tools/beaglebone-black-eMMC-flasher.sh and that didn't work either (as reported above in an earlier posting), it seems to have done something to the microSD which had Debian 9 on it too. So, how on earth am I going to get Debian 9 onto my BBB? Surely there must be a reliable way to do this, especially as I have a running Debian system on it. Is there a script I can get which can install an OS from an image on a microSD? I'd really be happiest with a script/program I can load and run on my existing system rather than some sort of automatic load which requires a combination of buttons pressed and power-up sequences. What I need (help/information) is:- What Debian 9 image to use (minimal non-GUI system) How to write it to the microSD card (on a Linux system) A script to run that will install it on the eMMC. -- Chris Green · -- For more options, visit http://beagleboard.org/discuss --- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "BeagleBoard" group.
