    Hello,

    I am trying to install the Pi-Pan software onto a Raspi 2. I use this code as per the setup page:
    pi@octopi:~ $ cd /home/pi/pi-pan
    pi@octopi:~ /pi-pan $ sudo ./install-pi-pan.bash


    What it responds is:
    cp: cannot create regular file (a white square appears here)/usr/local/sbin/servod(white square): Text file busy
    Updating config files...
    WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!
         i2c-tools python-smbus
    E: There are problems and -y was used without --force-yes
    sed: can't read /etc/modprobe.d/raspi-blacklist.conf: No such file or directory
    Installing device libraries...
    sudo: pip: command not found
    ------------------------------------
    Pi-Light Install completed
    ------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------
    Pi-Pan Install completed
    ------------------------------------

    Then I try to center the camera using:
    pi@octopi:~ /pi-pan $ cd pi-pan
    and it returns this before I can finish the rest:
    -bash: cd: pi-pan: No such file or directory

    If I pop the card out and view it on my Mac, I can clearly see there is a directory called "pi-pan" at the root level.
    I am stuck. Am I overlooking something obvious? I am new to this, so please help if you can.

    Thanks

    This error indicates that you already have servod installed.
    Please remove that before you install PiPan software (Have you installed it for some other purpose? If so, you may reconfigure it manually to use with PiPan).

    sudo: pip: command not found
    this error indicates that program pip is not installed.

    Which Operating system are you trying this on?
    (PiPan software works with Raspbian Wheezy or Jessie only.)
    We suggest you simply download following image on your SD card:

    Thanks for your help. This seems to have solved the problems. I think the issue is that I was running Octoprint, which is a variant of Jessie, but probably doesn't contain all the needed elements.

    That said though, the image above says it's for use with RPi 3 Model B. I have a Raspi 2. It seems to work, but I have not put it through the paces yet, so I'm not sure. Should I switch it out for this one: http://www.mindsensors.com/largefiles/2015-10-28-Jessie-with-pi-pan.zip that says it's for Raspi 2?

    The new OS image is backword compatible with old Raspberry Pi hardware, so you are fine.
