Updating the SD card image

This is an incredibly lazy announcement from me: I am working to get a new SD image released - I think I’ve got a working image now, but it’s not yet tested. In the event that anybody else would like to test it before I get around to it, you can find it in this folder in the build server:


There are a few new features:

  • The latest v2.10.1 server is preinstalled
  • The SNES client (allows gamepad support) is part of the “lite” image now
  • There’s a pre-installed Python environment including openflexure-microscope-client and Jupyter, so it should be much easier to start programming your microscope.
  • There are a few utility packages preinstalled to make development easier

The base system is still Buster - Bullseye may happen, if I can get it to work!

If you download this and it works, or doesn’t, please post here and let me know!

I’ve now tested it, and put the latest images on the build server:


These are now linked to from the “latest” links as well.

Hi, @r.w.bowman I am unable to download the given files. Can you please what is the possible error?

Hi @bagginstyrone do you mean the link above this post? If so, I just checked it and the link didn’t match up with the text - something must have gone wrong when I edited the post, but it’s now fixed. Thanks for letting me know. I’ve checked and I can download the latest image (https://build.openflexure.org/raspbian-openflexure/2022-04-20-raspbian-openflexure-buster-armhf-lite.zip). Could you try again? Thanks.
