Scripts for adding Botic support into Debian based distribution

Installation

Make sure that there is at least 200MB of free space on the root filesystem of BBB.

df -h /

If there is not enough space, resize/extend partition if possible. Check the manual of your distro for the instructions.

Then proceed with executing following 5 scripts:

Check the time on the BBB, change it manually if it does not match

bash 00-checktime.sh

Add a Botic repository:

bash 01-addrepos.sh

Install packages from Botic repository:

bash 02-install.sh

Enable shutdown on Power button press:

bash 03-enablepm.sh

Enables time update from network, fixes CPU frequency to 1GHz:

bash 04-customsw.sh

Verify configuration before the reboot

Locate the correct boot configuration file, check if there is a line starting with dtb=

nano /boot/uEnv.txt

If the "dtb=" is not there, then check also the alternative location:

mount /boot/uboot

nano /boot/uboot/uEnv.txt

In the uEnv.txt file check the following, and fix if needed:

Kernel selection:

uname_r=4.5.0-botic7-rc1

Configuration file for normal Botic driver version:

dtb=am335x-boneblack-botic.dtb

Configuration file for Botic driver with I2C control of ESS Sabre32 ES9018 DAC (stereo only) via isolated I2C header of Hermes-BBB:

dtb=am335x-boneblack-botic-sabre32.dtb

Reboot and the final check

sync

reboot

After the reboot, login again and check the kernel version:

root@botic:~# uname -r

4.5.0-botic7-rc1

And the presence of Botic audio device (in following example the sabre32 is configured):

root@botic:~# aplay -l
