developer key troubles.

Postby bfollett » Tue Jan 11, 2011 11:26 am

I successfully download the developer key and upgraded my XO to the latest official firmware and sugar sofware releases. I then tried to get back to the OK promt at startup and it wouldn't work. I figured maybe with the upgrades the developer key was lost so I tried to download it again, but when I run the wget command in terminal to copy/activate the developer key I get error messages> /security/develop.sig: Permission denied Cannot write to "security/develop.sig"
I have a usb flash drive in the XO's usb port and it's not write protected. Any help???

Thanks,
Bob

Bob, I assume you are doing a command like:
Code: Select all
wget <URI> /security/developer.sig

Could you split that up to two steps, getting it and putting it in the right place?
Code: Select all
wget <URI> developer.sig
cp developer.sig /security/developer.sig

and lets see which step that fails.

If it's the second step, lets see what the permissions are
Code: Select all
ls -la /security

and who we are ourselves
Code: Select all
id


If it's the case that the "/security" or an existing "/security/developer.sig" is owned by root (or otherwise has read only permissions), then we can try to sudo our copy command ("super user do")
Code: Select all
sudo cp developer.sig /security/developer.sig

Oops, it was my fault that it wasn't working I was forgetting to run the "su" command in terminal before running the developer key get routine. It worked fine once I did that. Thanks for the quick reply though.
