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.

EDIT: Apparently, sources.list was not found here: http://codinghobbit.no-ip.org/uploads/TI-Nspire/linux/sources.list
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.

Hello,

Sorry if there are any mistakes.
