  • Try power cycling your Kiwi. The file /etc/resolv.conf getting damaged will cause this error. And since v1.195 the Kiwi code will make sure the file is okay after a reboot.

    If that doesn't work, are you able to login to Debian running on the Beagle? E.g. using ssh from another Linux/OSX machine or PuTTY from Windows? If so, what happens when you do a "ping" from the Beagle?
  • power cycling .. resolv.conf has 2 lines with 2 nameservers (my routers ip and my providers dns server..)....i think file is ok
    ok log to console from windows admin interface console and ping to is ok
  • Okay, there are more things to try.

    When logged into Beagle, enter the commands "cdp" (change to build directory) and "m update_check". This will try to fetch the new Makefile from and compare it against the current Makefile. It should note the change in version numbers from v1.212 to v1.224 (or later).

    If this works then try building the release manually with the command "up" (update).
  • debian@kiwisdr:~$ cdp
    -bash: cdp: command not found
    debian@kiwisdr:~$ m update_check
    -bash: m: command not found

    nothing yet

    You have to login as user "root" to get access to the "cdp" and "m" aliases, and also for certain commands to work that need root privileges. You are logging in as user "debian".
  • root@kiwisdr:~# su
    root@kiwisdr:~# cdp
    root@kiwisdr:~/Beagle_SDR_GPS# m update check
    make: *** No rule to make target 'update'. Stop.
    root@kiwisdr:~/Beagle_SDR_GPS# m update_check
    make: *** No rule to make target 'update_check'. Stop.

    still problem
    anyway many thanks

    Okay, do a "ls -la Makefile" while in the directory via "cdp". Is that file zero length? That would keep the build from working. Also, do a "df". Is the filesystem full? If not, try building from scratch by using these commands:

    git clean -fd
    git checkout .
    git pull -v
    make clean
    make install
    make start
  • la -la Makefile returned zero lenght. after df space is ok.

    root@kiwisdr:~/Beagle_SDR_GPS# git checkout
    error: object file .git/objects/05/727946863c405158da592362e6bf559dffaff6 is empty

    Okay. Well unfortunately it seems your filesystem has become corrupted. You'll need to restore using the micro sd card shipped with the unit. Or if you're comfortable with Linux commands you could move the source directory aside and do a fresh git checkout. Something like this:

    mv Beagle_SDR_GPS Beagle_SDR_GPS.bad
    git clone
  • i must say thank you. i have done the the fresh git checkout with Linux commands. 1.231 version now. all ok.
