What could be causing this error?

  • Been working on the Time-lapse Webcam tutorial in the Onion Handbook. (Onion Team, thanks for the writing the book!). It help to reset our Omega2+ and start from scratch as now the code matches the tutorial's code.

    Now receiving the following error(s):


    For now, just focusing on the first one - "can't cd to /root/sd/timeplase/" (was previously /root/sd/timelapse).

    Here is the code:


    Tried many searches (stackoverflow, etc..) and variations to line 3, but no success. It seems like a simple, but elusive, resolution.

    Any ideas! Thanks in advance.

  • If you followed the tutorial then is more likely that your SD is not mounted.

    First error indicates that folder /root/sd/timelapse doesn't exists, and second one depends on listing it's contents, so if folder doesn't exists then there is no content, so can't do 'ls' so 'for' exits.

    Updated the path and eliminated that error. The shortcut link might not be setup correctly.


    Running ls for /tmp/run/mountd/mmcblk0p1/timelapse does list the *.jpg files.

    Now, working on this error.


  • May be shooting in the dark, but put the "do" back on the "for" line (line 8).

  • Revised the code to the following:


    It runs without generating the previous errors, but the results show more trouble shooting is necessary:


    There are *.jpg two files that are now in the directory after the program ran, and the new file(s) should be an *.mp4:


    Now, working on to see what is causing it.
