We have created scripts to automate the creation of the CF Images.

Ubuntu 12.04 - Latest Supported Release

wget http://web.barrett.com/support/WAM_Installer/cf_install_1204.sh

#Run the script
bash cf_install_1204.sh

Follow the on-screen instructions to create the Ubuntu Xenomai 12.04 CF Card.

With the power off, insert the new CF image into the WAM's PC/104. Boot the WAM with the new OS.

You should now be able to SSH into the WAMs PC/104. Note: You may need to remove your ~/.ssh/known_hosts file as the ssh_key will be different.

On the 12.04 CF Image home directory is a file - install_software.sh. This file will install the latest libbarrett and btclient software.

bash install_software.sh

Ubuntu 9.10 - Previous Supported Release

wget http://web.barrett.com/support/WAM_Installer/cf_install_910.sh
