Local file copy to Pi instead of using Github
I’ve been trying to download OpenCV for the facial recognition module, and am running into
RPC failed; result=56, HTTP code = 200, fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly.00 GiB | MiB/s, fatal: early EOF, fatal: index-pack failed
This problem is well documented but none of the workarounds succeeded, which has me thinking since I can successfully download it via browser on my laptop, how can I get it to my Pi? Can’t I just copy to the Pi using a USB drive and go on with the install? Is there a specific command the Pi is using to extract a .zip file when we use “git clone”?
@Cyberwrights Yes, if you cannot download to the RPi directly, clone and transfer should work (via USB, FTP, etc). Unzip it to your USB, then transfer, or use a utility like
It didn’t work because in the next step of the installation it tries to verify the local folder is a git repository, and fails.
