I'm pretty new to Linux in any form. Bought a Raspberry Pi at the same time as the Yun and am making headway but frustrating to say the least at times.
Spent all day yesterday trying to solve a problem and thought whilst not news to many of you might well but useful information to other Linux newbies coming over the Arduino world.
I wanted to make use of the PyGeoCoder module in some Python code onboard the Yun. This is dead simple using 'pip'. Not so :-)
'pip' is installed using 'easy_install' which turns out is part of 'distribute'. 'easy_install' will then fail trying to install 'pip' as Python doesn't have SSL support built into the Yun. Finally I can install the python module I wanted and get going :-)
opkg update opkg install distribute opkg install python-openssl easy_install pip pip install pygeocode
5 simple steps that took me far to long.
Hopefully this information will be of some use to others.
