Sorry for the stupidity BUT.
I have and used a MacBook Pro to make SD cards for Moode until now. Keen to examine the beta however.

I have copied the img to a USB disc.

Now looking at STEP 2 I assume there is no way to persuade OSX to do the same stages? i.e. there is no /mnt but there is a /Volumes.
no /dev/sda1 and so forth.

The only Linux I have is that care of Moode. Do I have to wait until someone offers a build like Tim has done until now? Or is there an alternative way?

Thanks folks

Default Don't Panic! give it a go!

Yesterday I installed Raspbian Stretch Full on a rpi3b with attatched monitor,mouse and keyboard.

I followed the instructions for steps 1 and 2 from the receipt with regard to the usb stick and when I got to here

Code:
Use "sudo fdisk -l -o Device,Start,Type | grep 0p" to print the partition data. Offset = Start * 512.
there was no data posted on the screen.

I knew that a previous OP had informed Tim of the same problem, I found the post and read Tim's reply.

The info that this step is based on the OS that I was using on the rpi encouraged me to just continue with the process without trying Tim's workaround.

The install completed and I then did the image burn and completed the beta7 install.

I did leave out Step 11 and did not install any additional components.

Today I used Gparted on a live usb stick of Mint to check the partitions on the sd card, here are the results;

The card is a Scandisk 16gb

reading from left to right I got

"unallocated"..............4.00 Mib

"/dev/sdc1"...............Size 41.81 Mib............Used 21.48 Mib

"/dev/sdc2"...............Size 2.93 Gib..............Used 1.62 Gib

"unallocated".............11.86 Gib

So, if one has no linux skills, but possess a pi (that's a given) have accesss to a kepboard and monitor and an extra sd card, then it is quite possible, with a little care and diligence to complete the receipt.

Hope this helps.

Being a "bear of little brain" I just realised that I could have got the info the easy way

Code:
sudo fdisk -l
gives

I don't know if this is important or even matters, perhaps some one can explain.

Every thing seems to work, regardless

Hi aBrianH,
i have no OSX, but i think you can write the unmodified stretch image to a sd-card like all the moode images you did before. Then pull out the sdcard and plug it in again. There shouls be the FAT boot-partition. Then create an empty file with the name "ssh" on the "FAT" partition. Thats it.
Eject your sdcard from your mac and follow STEP3.2

Disadvantage of this method: After the first boot the root-filesystem will expand to its maimum size, so a backup of your sdcard will eat a lot of time and a lot of memory. And belive me - you want to have a backup after hours of compiling and installing

I did it basically using tonno's method in the previous post. No keyboard, monitor or mouse attached to the RPi. Used Apple Pi Baker on MacBook to create the Stretch image on SD card, and terminal for the rest. Adding the empty file enables you to initially ssh in to the RPi.

Just tried it - and it seems to work properly.
We do not need a linux-pc needed for the build process

Thanks for that suggestion tonno, it made the best sense from my position.
However, I tried it twice and after the powerdown on restart of the box - powered on again - the pi was no longer on the network.

It is connected by ethernet BTW. So I reburned the SD card and went through the same process to fail at Step 4.1 just isn't on the network.

Looks like the Step 3 things have not worked as intended.

Checked the SD card in the Mac and the only thing that had changed was config.txt. That now reads

disable_splash=1
hdmi_drive=2
dtparam=i2c_arm=on
dtparam=i2s=on
dtparam=audio=on
#dtoverlay=pi3-disable-wifi
#dtoverlay=pi3-disable-bt

Stumped - it is beyond me sad to say.

Snap!, I have just done it on Raspberry stretch-lite on an rpi3b using a 7gb card

Here is the output of "sudo fdisk -l"

Quote:

I'm going to expand the card using sudo raspi-congfig ( I know that there is a simple cmd line for this, but can't find it at the moment).
When the card is expanded and updated I'll start the usb stick trick and see how it goes.
I'll be using Putty on a Windows 10 laptop.
