Re: FreeCAD on PI4 and Raspbian Buster.

To follow up on my earlier post regarding performance. I just compared the execution of the command line version of FreeCAD 0.16 and 0.18 on the same platform, and find them about the same. So the Raspberry Pi4 really is running these scripts at a very impressive speed. Specifically about 30% of a X...

Re: FreeCAD on PI4 and Raspbian Buster.

Install FreeCAD with this command sudo apt install freecad If the package isn't found (which is likely as its brand new) do apt update apt upgrade Then try again. Once its installed you can run your scripts with freecadcmd scrip_name.py As previously mentioned the GUI is not currently operational.

Re: FreeCAD on PI4 and Raspbian Buster.

The command line interface (freecadcmd) works like a charm, so I can run my rendering scripts. Surprisingly fast too.

RPI4 gives Kernel errors under heavy USB3 load

If I hook a fast SSD to my Rasperry Pi USB3 ports and run a disk performance test, I get a lot of errors in /var/log/syslog log like this: Jul 1 21:07:35 pi4 kernel: [123910.977911] xhci_hcd 0000:01:00.0: ERROR unknown event type 37 Jul 1 21:07:35 pi4 kernel: [123911.602667] xhci_hcd 0000:01:00.0: E...

Re: FreeCAD on PI4 and Raspbian Buster.

Thanks for trying. At least we know why there is no Raspbian package for FreeCAD.

Re: FreeCAD on PI4 and Raspbian Buster.

Thanks for the reply. I had only done an update, not seen full-update before. But tried your exact sequence now and nothing has changed as far as installing FreeCAD goes.

Currently installation errors out as below. root@pi4:~# apt install freecad Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some pack...
