I’m new to chip, with some Linux experience.
I connected the Chip to my laptop following this guide: Setting up CHIP as a headless server with minimal tools.
Once I was logged in, I installed tightvncserver based on this guide: http://www.penguintutor.com/linux/tightvnc.
I then logged in to a GUI session from my laptop. I got a promp telling me there are 131 packages to update, so I went ahead and hit Update. I was prompted for user:chip’s password, I provided it, and the process began. After about 2 minutes. the chip turned off. I don’t know if it’s because the chip was overheating (it was warm, but not hot), or because it was drawing too much power from the laptop.
I then went and plugged it into a 2A wall charger, VNCed into it, and tried to install the updates. This time, I got an error message: Failed to process request: failed to obtain authentication. (And I was not prompted for a password).
What can I do in order to install the updates?
