Powerblock - Drivers not downloading correctly



  • Hello all,

    I am very new to Raspberry Pi's and come to you with what I hope is a simple question.

    I have ran the quick install command for the PowerBlock on my Raspberry Pi3 and it ends with the following error:

    cannot open shared object file: Error 36
    doc/CMakeFiles/doc.dir/build.make:61: recipe for target 'doc/htmlDoc/index.html' failed
    make[2]: *** [doc/htmlDoc/index.html] Error 127
    CMakeFiles/Makefile2:626: recipe for target 'doc/CMakeFiles/doc.dir/all' failed
    make[1]: *** [doc/CMakeFiles/doc.dir/all] Error 2
    Makefile:127: recipe for target 'all' failed
    make: *** [all] Error 2
    Error during installation of binary
    Scanning dependencies of target installservice

    [100%] Built target installservice
    /home/pi/PowerBlock
    [ERROR] The PowerBlock driver binary is not installed
    [ERROR] The PowerBlock service is not running
    You can find the configuration file at /etc/powerblockconfig.cfg.

    Any ideas on why I keep getting errors with shared object files? or any of the other issues? any input is helpful. Thanks.

    What image are you using?
    Raspbian, Retropie, something else?
    I would try to reproduce it on my side:



  • The Pi boots into Retropie, I quit that and ran the quick start link to download and install the drivers.

    When that failed I booted into raspbian and made sure everything was updated using the Read Me. Then I attempted the install again and it gave me the same errors.

    Can you post the output here?

    I just checked the installation script with the current RetroPie image and everything went fine for me. I have also added a screencast that shows the console output for the installation. You can find it in the "Videos" section at https://blog.petrockblock.com/powerblock-raspberry-pi-power-switch/.
