MetaHub Issue-Python fail install metawear


Board Information:
i'm using your MetaHub+MetMotionR.

I'm trying to buil my own app on the MetaHub with Python.
When I follow the Tutorial, when I try to "sudo pip install metawear" the MetaHub start to overheat and fail the installation. I've tried both Pyton2.7 and Python3.

If i didn't install the metawear library I can't use the Python-SDK examples and build my App.

I really appeciate your support.

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,
Caterina Russo

  • Hi Laura,
    thanks for your answer.
    Sure, this is what I get when I try the command "sudo pip install metawear" :

    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo pip install metawear
    Collecting metawear
    Using cached
    Requirement already satisfied: requests in /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages (from metawear)
    Requirement already satisfied: warble<2.0,>=1.1 in /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages (from metawear)
    Building wheels for collected packages: metawear
    Running bdist_wheel for metawear ... \

    And then the raspberry remains stuck.
    I've waited a lot of time but nothing change.

    Please write me if you need more info

    Best Regards,

  • Why are you installing something that is already installed on the Metahub?
    It seems you are running our of stack/mem space on the install.

  • Dear Laura,'re right! thank you so much! Now with Python everithing it is fine.

    Instead, when I try to use the Javascript exmples (I've tried with sudo node multi_dev.js) I've got this:
    pi@raspberrypi:~/MetaWear-SDK-JavaScript/examples $ sudo node multi_device.js
    throw err;

    Error: Cannot find module 'debug'

    Please could you help me again?
