I got my CHIP yesterday, and had lots of fun trying to figure out how to set it up with a mouse but no keyboard. Eventually using my USB cable I got terminal access via my laptop and was able to set it up for SSH. Unfortunatly I noticed lots of errors as I used it. Mostly having to do with locale.
perl: warning: Setting locale failed. perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings: LANGUAGE = (unset), LC_ALL = (unset), LANG = "en_US.UTF-8" are supported and installed on your system. perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C"). locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory
There were many versions of this, but the common theme seemed to be the last three lines.
I tried using
locale-gen en_US en_US.UTF-8 dpkg-reconfigure locales
and then rebooting, but now the chip isn’t booting anymore! The lights go on, but nothing shows up on the TV and I can’t SSH in anymore. What did I do wrong? Did I brick it? How do I reflash this?
Okay the not booting was an overheating issue, and the locale seems to have been fixed. Leaving this here for anybody else with the same problem.
