Powerblock install on piCoreplayer
First post and a Newbie. I hope someone can help.
I have a powerblock and I am trying to get it working on a raspberry-pi running piCoreplayer. Unfortunately picoreplayer does not use Apt-get to install so the install scripts simply fail.
Does anyone know the steps to either do this manually or what I can do to update the install script such that it will work on piCoreplayer?
@cpf928 Just a quick question.. have you used this on a previous build (PiCorePlayer ) ?
Does it work well ?
apttries to install just
git, in order to clone the Github project repository. You can download the source directly and comment out the lines in
apt-get. Make sure you have
gitinstalled and run the install script again.
@ByteThis Hi, apologies for the dely. No never, only got the powerblock a couple of days ago
@mitu Hi, thanks for your reply. I will have a go and message back. thanks again
Hi, well I got a little further, thank you for your help.
I installed git and copied the install.sh down and commented out apt-get. I then ran the file.
It now errors on line 38: update-rc.d: not found. I cant find it either.
Then there does not appear to be a /lib/init/vars.sh I have checked and there is no directory /lib/init
I looked through the ./powerblock/scripts/powerblock file and it lists
. /lib/init/vars.sh (both the directory and file therefore do not exist) and
. /lib/lsb/init-function (both lsb directory and file do not exist
I am guessing this all because I am using picoreplayer version of linux
Any ideas would be much appreciated

This is a standard Debian utility to register a service for Powerblock so it starts automatically with the system. You can comment that out also, though you need to have a method to start the
powerblockprogram - probably with a specific script or perhaps a service facility offered by the piCorePlayer (?).
Thanks for your help @ByteThis . I tried for about 3 hours yesterday and simply couldn't get it to work. I have decided to abandon the Powerblock and build my own from scratch. thanks agin for you help. regards Cliff
