The Raspberry Pi and Th2D are the newest additions to the Raspbian GNU/Linux distribution.
They’re based on the same Linux kernel as the original Raspberry Pi, which makes them an interesting choice for those who don’t want to fork the RPI kernel or want to build their own.
However, installing the newer version of the Raspberry Pi requires a little bit more work than the Raspberry Pis original models.
First you’ll need to install the latest version of Linux, which you’ll do via the terminal: # apt-get install linux-headers-3.16.1-amd64 # aptitude install linux # reboot Now, open a terminal and type the following commands: # dmesg | grep th2d -v The output should show a lot of information, including the following: [131066.0029] th2g/kernel: Th2d: Found Th2g_BMP driver (version 1.00.0000).
[131065.0048] th3g/libs: Th3g_1: Th4g_2: Th5g_3: Th6g_4: Th7g_5: Th8g_6: Th9g_7: Th10g_8: Th11g_9: Th12g_10: Th13g_11: Th14g_12: Th15g_13: Th16g_14: Th17g_15: Th18g_16: Th19g_17: Th20g_18: Th21g_19: Th22g_20: Th23g_21: Th24g_22: Th25g_23: Th26g_24: Th27g_25: Th28g_26: Th29g_27: Th30g_28: Th31g_29: Th32g_30: Th33g_31: Th34g_32: Th35g_33: Th36g_34: Th37g_35: Th38g_36: Th39g_37: Th40g_38: Th41g_39: Th42g_40: Th43g_41: Th44g_42: Th45g_43: Th46g_44: Th47g_45: Th48g_46: Th49g_47: Th50g_48: Th51g_49: Th52g_50: Th53g_51: Th54g_52: Th55g_53: Th56g_54: Th57g_55: Th58g_56: Th59g_57: Th60g_58: Th61g_59: Th62g_60: Th63g_61: Th64g_62: Th65g_63: Th66g_64: Th67g_65: Th68g_66: Th69g_67: Th70g_68: Th71g_69: Th72g_70: Th73g_71: Th74g_72: Th75g_73: Th76g_74: Th77g_75: Th78g_76: Th79g_77: Th80g_78: Th81g_79: Th82g_80: Th83g_81: Th84g_82: Th85g_83: Th86g_84: Th87g_85: Th88g_86: Th89g_87: Th90g_88: Th91g_89: Th92g_90: Th93g_91: Th94g_92: Th95g_93: Th96g_94: Th97g_95: Th98g_96: Th99g_97: Th100g_98: Th101g_99: Th102g_ 100 ] You can verify if the output matches your device by opening the terminal window again and typing: # lsblk -l This output should now be similar to this: -b 2147483647 -b 4096 -b 65536 -b 32767 -b 5142880 -b 1310722401 -b 25604860 -b 145736364 -b 4194304 -b 77592 -b 327636 -d 0x0020 If it’s the case, you should be able to find the correct Th2G_Bmp driver and Th4G_2 driver.
You can then proceed to install both drivers by typing: $ dmes GOOGLE_GOOG_RUN -b -v /dev/mmcblk0p2
