[Posbox] Can't start odoo.py

on 6/30/16, 3:59 AM 421 views


I've downloaded the latest image (v14) and installed in on the raspberry pi 2. It boots properly and all the files are there but when I try to start odoo.py I get the error that /home/pi/.local is a read-only file system.

What am I doing wrong here? I followed the guidelines, setup the user groups and added them.

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ ./odoo/odoo.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./odoo/odoo.py", line 160, in <module>
File "./odoo/odoo.py", line 157, in main

File "/usr/lib/python2.7/os.py", line 157, in makedirs
mkdir(name, mode)
OSError: [Errno 30] Read-only file system: '/home/pi/.local'

Here is an image of the problem


Was a solution every found? I am having the same issues getting both of my POS Boxes set up on Raspberry Pi 3's.
