The alpha and beta releases are subject to major changes. The target audience is people with some knowledge of their devices, coding, installing python modules and basic stuff!

# Updating to B1 branch or above from A1

First double check your satellite is operational on A1

Then in the command line do the following

  • sudo systemctl stop ProjectAlice
  • git stash
  • git checkout 1.0.0-b1
  • sudo apt-get install portaudio19-dev
  • ./venv/bin/pip install importlib_metadata
  • ./venv/bin/pip install webrtcvad
  • ./venv/bin/pip install wheel
  • ./venv/bin/pip install pyaudio
  • sudo systemctl start ProjectAlice

To check there are no errors ...

  • tail -f /var/log/syslog

If no errors

  • git stash clear

If everything goes fine, and you have a satellite displayed in My Home. The satellite icon should now be green showing it's connected.
