I am trying to turn my raspberry to a PiCroft. For that I need to use these commands:

cd ~/
git clone https://github.com/MycroftAI/mycroft-core.git
cd mycroft-core
bash dev_setup.sh

I did nothing after I installed Raspbian Stretch OS, and I have a 16 GB SD card. After the last command which took a long time, I see an error:

memory exhausted: can not allocate memory
makefile:3860: recipe for target 'lang/vid_gb_ap/libttsmimic_lang_vid_gb_ap_la-vid_gb_ap_cg_01_params.lo'failed
make[1]:*** [lang/vid_gb_ap/libttsmimic_lang_vid_gb_ap_la-vid_gb_ap_cg_01_params.lo] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/pi/mycroft-core/mimic'
makefile: 4111: recipe for target 'all-recursive'failed
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

Can someone help me?

  • oh, maybe for picroft you should either download the image already made for you, or use the correct source code github.com/MycroftAI/enclosure-picroft – Jaromanda X Sep 4 '18 at 9:09
  • perhaps mycroft for pi is cross compiled on a computer with more resources than the humble pi – Jaromanda X Sep 4 '18 at 9:13

What you try cannot work. You are using Raspbian Stretch but picroft is build on Raspbian Jessie you can find it on https://github.com/MycroftAI/enclosure-picroft:

The Picroft project is an enclosure for a stock Raspberry Pi connected to a speaker and basic USB microphone. This is built around a Raspbian Jessie Lite installation. The entire project is available as a pre-built micro-SD image ready to be burned and placed into a Raspberry Pi.

  • it works on Raspbian Stretch too. – ali Sep 5 '18 at 9:37

  • yes, i can't solve it completely but i know that tutorials for jessie can works for stretch too. for this problem i create a swapfile so i can install the dev file but when i release the swap file like when the memory is full the pi stops working. – ali Sep 6 '18 at 5:17
