1  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Running Arduino from SD card on: March 18, 2012, 11:23:30 am
Linux (Ubuntu 11.10)

Why are giving the Ubuntu to a single board computer try for a simpler Linux package such as a Puppy or Fedora or something like this + I initially worked towards making the Arduino IDE work under the puppy when i had a primitive computer which ran puppy only nothing else;start=all  now i have a nice computer with windows 7 so i dnt need that.

The board is running Debian Squeeze, the workstation is running Ubuntu, I want to install Arduino on the SD card to be used in the Debian Squeeze environment because the board that has Debian Squeeze on it doesn't have enough on board memory to install Arduino on it.

Hey guys I am using a single board computer <> that has a slot for a 2GB SD card and unfortunately there is not enough memory on the board itself to install Arduino so we are trying to install it on the SD card and run it from there.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Hey everybody, I am trying to do a manual install of arduino 1.0 on a debian squeeze environment because when I try to run the apt-get install command for whatever reason I can download the initial packages but cannot connect to (Err temporary failure resolving to, and I also can't get it to ping any website).  Can anybody link me up to a step by step process of the manual install.  Thanks alot.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

As a person slightly familiar with Linux (Ubuntu 11.10) and not very much with Debian, I come begging for help.  I am part of a senior project and am currently working with a Debian based SBC (Single Board Controller, specifically  It is Debian version 3.1 and I am trying to install the Arduino 1.0 on it.  I did see the page for Debian however it mentioned using Debian 6.03, well I tried anyway and when running the command <sudo apt-get install arduino-core OR sudo apt-get install arduino> I get the following:
root@ts7800:root#  apt-get install arduino
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package arduino
root@ts7800:root# sudo apt-get install arduino-core
-bash: sudo: command not found
root@ts7800:root# apt-get install arduino-core
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package arduino-core

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
