DrDAQ & Raspberry Pi 3 with Raspian?

Postby emale » Fri Mar 11, 2016 1:15 am

Hi,

I got the CD in the package, but not used it as the software installation instructions were on the site (And I was too lazy to dig out my USB CD Drive)...

I followed the instructions, all going well, and got as far as installing the picoscope software and I get this...

<snip>
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo apt-get install picoscope
Reading package lists... Done

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
picoscope : Depends: libpl1000 (= 1.0.8-1r06) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libps2000 (= 2.1.5-3r06) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libps2000a (= 1.1.5-5r28) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libps3000 (= 3.7.6-3r05) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libps3000a (= 1.4.5-6r45) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libps4000 (= 1.2.5-2r18) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libps4000a (= 1.0.5-2r31) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libps5000 (= 1.5.5-3r16) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libps5000a (= 1.1.5-5r24) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libps6000 (= 1.4.5-6r34) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libusbdrdaq (= 1.0.5-1r06) but 1.0.5-1r12 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

</snip>

I then opened the GUI to add/remove software and manually installed everything - no difference, the opt/picoscope directory has

/include
/lib
/share

As the main app failed, guessing that's why there's no bin directory to play with.

I've tried the sudo apt-get -f install and the usual commands to clear up any apt-get issues but still no joy.

Is it a Layer "8" issue i.e. the wetware :-) or am I barking up the wrong tree with the pi and need to use a full blown x86 install of Debian?

Any pointers would be appreciated

Hi emale,

The PicoScope application is not currently supported on Raspberry Pi platforms.

We can provide beta armhf drivers if you wish to create your own application otherwise you would have to use a standard Linux installation (e.g. Ubuntu) to use the PicoScope 6 software.
