          Hello VaFl_4649796,

           

          I tried installing Cypress Programmer on a Raspberry Pi 3 and I am able to reproduce the issue.

          In Cypress Programmer GUI User Guide under System Prerequisites it is mentioned that Cypress Programmer is only supported in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (x64) distribution as shown -

          I also tried installing Cypress Programmer on an Ubuntu machine just to confirm and followed the same procedure. I was able to run Cypress Programmer successfully.

           

          Hope this helps,

           

          Regards,

          Rakshith M B

            thanks for your help; The image file i have installed is the same as you tell. (The Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (x64))

             

            Can you explane how you install Cyprogrammer succesfully?

             

            can you check my procedure : (Cypress user guide page9)

             

            -I have download and unpack file CyProgrammer_2.1.0.226.tar.gz in my Documents directory in a folder name CyProgrammer_2.1.0.226

             

            -then I have run the file intall_rules.sh so that the script copy the file 57-cypress_programmer.rules to the directory /etc/udev/rules.d

             

            -After this When I try to run CypGui; nothing happends.

             

            Do you think something is wrong in my installation or in my linux config?

             

            Regards,

              Hello vafl_4649796,

               

              Can you please confirm the OS distribution that you are using? You have mentioned that you are using Raspbian OS -

               

              How can I use Cypressprogrammer software in this configuration (Rapberry pi4 with rasbian OS) To program

               

              Raspbian is not supported by Cypress Programmer Software. Can you please run this  - "lsb_release -a" command and share the results?

               

              Regarding in the installation procedure, that is correct, I followed the same procedure mentioned in Cypress Programmer GUI User Guide page 9 as shown and it worked for me.

               

               

              Thanks and Regards,

                  Hello vafl_4649796,

                   

                  I found these links that might help you with your query -

                  How to Find if Linux is Running on 32-bit or 64-bit?

                  Raspberry pi 4 - x64 Processor ?

                   

                  Hope this helps,

                    Hello,

                    This is the result for asking  32 or 64 bits

                     

                    Can you give me please a precision about your first publication because my english is not beautiful and i don't realy undesrtand an expression .

                     

                    When you say:

                     

                    I tried installing Cypress Programmer on a Raspberry Pi 3 and I am able to reproduce the issue.

                    do you want to say that when you use Cypress Programmer with the Raspberry Pi3, you have a good result? or you have the same as mine?

                     

                    if you have the same result as mine; it means that perhaps the Raspberry is not interpreted like a 64 bits by linux while it is a 64 bits so that it respond armv7l.

                     

                    What do you think about this?

                      Hello;

                      I have translate your expression and i now understand that you've tryed Cypress Programmer with a pi3 and that it doesn't run

                      The Pi3 is a 32 bit Arcitecture

                      The Pi4 is a 64 bit architecture

                      I hope that the problem comes from Linux that interpreted the Raspbery like a 32 bit .

                      do you think my problem is related to this?

                      Have you got a solution?

                      thanks a lot

                        Hello vafl_4649796,

                         

                        I apologize if my reply was confusing. I will try to clear your queries.

                         

                        do you want to say that when you use Cypress Programmer with the Raspberry Pi3, you have a good result? or you have the same as mine?

                         

                        I will explain the steps that I did.  I first installed Cypress Programmer on a Raspberry Pi 3. I was not able to run the software.

                        Next, to confirm that the procedure I used to install Cypress Programmer is right, I installed Cypress Programmer on a Laptop with Ubuntu OS. I was able to run the software on the laptop.

                         

                        if you have the same result as mine; it means that perhaps the Raspberry is not interpreted like a 64 bits by linux while it is a 64 bits so that it respond armv7l.

                        Like it is displayed in the screenshot that you have added in your comment, the architecture supported is armv7l which is a 32-bit architecture. You are correct in your understanding. Even though the Raspberry Pi is 64 bit the implementation of the Linux Kernel interprets it as 32-bit architecture. You can find more information regarding this here - Raspberry pi 4 shows armv7l at lscpu command?

                         

                        Hope this helps,

                         

                        Thanks and Regards,
