##### Peripheral Not Identified
« on: March 04, 2016, 10:45:54 am »
Hello, I have been reading things on this site for quite some time now, and have only today created an account, as I am having problems with my calculator that haven't been answered, as far as I see. If there is some forum for asking questions, I would be grateful if someone could move this there.
So, after reading I could run Linux on a calculator, I decided, "I must have this." So, I bought a TI-Nspire CX, updated it to 4.0.3.29, and followed the guide here: http://codinghobbit.no-ip.org/blog/?p=81
After setting my USB drive and calculator up, I attached my USB-OTG and USB drive to the calculator. When doing so, I received the message:
"Warning
Cannot communicate with the peripheral attached to handheld"
I figured "Okay, maybe the USB drive doesn't work." I tried a different one, but to no avail. I also tried a USB mouse, which also did not work. I have the latest version of ndless installed for 4.0.3, and I have the USB-OTG found here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JK1OFOM?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00
Could someone please explain to me what I'm doing wrong? Also, would it be worth it to update to the 4.2.0 firmware that I only now realize exists? Thank you in advance.

It's no more than logical that the USB devices aren't recognized, as TI has absolutely zero support for them Try launching the linux bootloader anyway Don't update to 4.2, that'll only break more things.
I'm not a nerd but I pretend:

Ah, okay, I'll be sure not to update to 4.2. I did try to launch the bootloader earlier (I probably should've put this in the original post) but it said something along the lines of "boot: command not recognized", so I am going to assume that did not work. Oh, Texas Instruments, why do you not want us using our calculators for running Linux...?

EDIT: I just realized, it may not be the USB that's malfunctioning, it may be the Linux installation itself. I'll try reinstalling Linux onto the USB. Also, I just discovered the quote function.

Heh, I should probably read things before replying, huh? The "USB device not recognized" is perfectly normal, TI-OS doesn't know how to talk to usb devices. Just plug it in, ignore the message, and continue booting linux.

Sorry for the delay, I meant to post images of the screen I get when booting Linux, but never got around to it. As previously stated, it didn't think "boot" was a command. When setting up the USB drive, it couldn't get sources.list, so I copied mine from my Debian Jessie installation and replaced "Jessie" with "Wheezy". I think this is part of the problem. I'll try setting it up again.

It's not on http://archive.org/web/ either.

EDIT2: I tried setting up nDroid and it seemed to boot the kernel. I never thought I'd see the day when my calculator had a kernel panic... Anyway, it does seem that linuxloader2 could communicate with the USB, but it could not execute the boot command.

Weird, copying the sources.list should've worked. Anyways, I forgot to fix sources.list when I re-did my blog, try this: http://codinghobbit.no-ip.org/uploads/sources.list

I finally got around to retrying it, and, too my surprise,I encountered an error that would not allow me to continue. When debootstraping on step 6 of your guide, it finished in seconds. I do not believe this was the desired waiting time. I looked at the logs, and it had multiple errors saying "Permission Denied", even though I was using sudo. I used su and tried to debootstrap again, to no avail. I looked in the /mnt folder (the USB drive), and the only file there was "lost+found", which I couldn't open anyway. I am using Debian 8.3.0 with KDE, if that's part of the problem.

EDIT: Also, I'm using virtualbox with Guest Additions installed. That's probably an important factor in diagnosing the problem.

Looks like you need to re-debootstrap. I also updated the guide, so maybe try starting from the beginning.

Alright, I'll try again, but this time, I'll cross my fingers the whole time (massive luck booster).

EDIT: Okay, I did everything again (even reinstalling Debian), but I still get stuck on step 6. So much for crossing my fingers

Are you sure you installed qemu-user-static and binfmt-support?

Yep. In fact, I even tried debootstrapping without them, but it just said the command wasn't found.

Sorry if there are any mistakes.
