Installing Webconverger

NOTE: There are no support for Windows and OSX installation currently

Installing from Linux

  1. Identify the partition of microSD card

Run sudo fdisk -l, insert the microSD card and re-run sudo fdisk -l again. Identify the newly inserted device which partition is normally /dev/sdc or /dev/mmcblk0, then export it as variable and enter Sudo mode:

sudo su
export sd=/dev/mmcblk0
  1. Format the SD card

Warning: This will destroy all the data from the microSD card.

Run fdisk $sd and type in the following (<E> means enter, ignore the spaces):

o <E> n <E> <E> <E> +30M <E> t <E> c <E> n <E> <E> <E> w <E>

For your information, this will create 2 partitions on the disk (fat32 and linux).

  1. Installation

Build the Linux filesystem

mkfs.vfat ${sd}1
mkfs.ext4 ${sd}2

Mount the partitions

mkdir -p /mnt/boot /mnt/root
mount ${sd}1 /mnt/boot
mount ${sd}2 /mnt/root

Download Webconverger (be patient)

rm -rf /mnt/root/*
git clone https://github.com/Webconverger/rpi2.git /mnt/root

Setup the boot partition

cp -r /mnt/root/boot/* /mnt/boot/

Unmount the partitions and ready to go

sync
umount /mnt/boot /mnt/root

For more info, please refer to https://Webconverger.org/rpi2/.

For developer
