SleepyHead on a Raspberry Pi 2
Has anyone successfully installed SleepyHead on a Raspberry Pi?

I tried the brute-force-and-ignorance approach by trying to install a Linux image (v 1.0.0-beta-1 for Ubuntu 15.04) but it turned out it's incompatible with the Pi's Arm7 processor.

Can anyone comment on what steps one would need to take to install SleepyHead on a Pi2 or Pi3, or whether it's even feasible?

Thanks in advance for any pointers or suggestions.

poke around and try to find an arm compatible tiny linux for your Pi. I thought I saw one on DistroWatch dot com. Hope that helps.

Try this:


Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

Thanks AlanE.

Unfortunately when I clicked the link you posted I got a "You do not have permission to access this page" error. Do you mind pasting the content directly?

Shastzi: Just to be clear, I do have Ubuntu MATE installed on the Pi 2, but the Sleepyhead Ubuntu version seems to be for AMD 64b hardware. (It was a long shot, but I had to try.)

So I'm left wondering if there's a way to "build from source", whether anyone has ever successfully installed SH on a Pi...

Last night I finally got a first run of SleepyHead on a Raspberry Pi 2. For those of you not familiar, it is a credit card sized computer with four ARM core processors and a fancy GPU. It has 1 GB of memory, runs at 900 MHz, and costs US$35.00. I'm running the latest Raspian release, which is a variant of Debian 8. It uses a digital HDMI capable TV as its display.

The SleepyHead window is missing its header, so I can't move the window to get to the FileManager to mount the SD card. Next time I'll mount it before I start SH. And raise the issue on the RasPi forums.

Nothing special in the setup; I installed the QT5 stuff, including qtcreator. Qtcreator didn't configure correctly, so I just used qmake and make. No changes to the cloned source code, although I did have to define BrokenGL because the RasPi has OpenGL ES instead of the full version.

So more to do, but it shouldn't be too difficult. The major reason for the attempt is that Raspian includes Wolfram's Mathmatica, so wolson's data analysis can probably be done for an affordable price...

I hope this helps.

Thanks very much for posting Alan, it's good to know someone has done it, or at least gotten close. I'll try it under Raspbian first and if that doesn't work will try Ubuntu.

I just tried using Archangle's make procedure, but with Ubuntu 16.04 freshly installed on a Pi 2.

Unfortunately I couldn't create an executable and make failed with:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lGLU
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status"

I tried again, using the BrokenGL version:

$ qmake DEFINES+=BrokenGL
$ make -B

... but got the same error.

I'm not familiar enough with Linux to understand what's going wrong but will try these steps again under Raspbian.

Couldn't get it to compile under Raspbian either. The make procedure failed with

Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT: serialport

You do not have all the prerequisites installed. These are listed in the "how to compile on Linux" instructions.
