Tried to wget the program tonight but unable to get through… I’ll try again tomorrow. Everything else including WiringPi downloaded fine.
Thanks for your work on this. I’m looking forward to trying it.
EDIT: I had to put sudo before issuing the wget command. After that it did fine. Thanks for the help. The issue of running as root may be confusing to those of us who are not so familiar with linux.
Additionally, maybe related to the same issues, I’m getting errors when I try this:
CODE: SELECT ALL
tar -xzvf sprinklers_pi-1.0.4.tar.gz
This is the error report:
tar (child): sprinklers_pi.1.0.4.tqr.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
Do I need to change directory before I run the tar command? Which directory?
I hope this isn’t seen as criticism in any way. In fact, I think of it as testing so that people who would love to have something like this won’t be put off by any difficulty.
