I have Home Assistant OS running on a Dell Optiplex 7040 PC with an i5 processor. I’ve starting using Frigate and like it, so I purchased a Coral. The Coral is PCIe, so I installed it using a PCIe to PCI adapter card. I tried setting up frigate.yml to point to the Coral, but its not detected. On my PC’s BIOS, it is showing that a device is recognized in the PCI port, and is calling it “unclassified”.
Based on the below link, it appears I need to install the drivers for Linux:
I’m following the procedure, which involves interfacing with the Linux PC via command line interface, which I am accomplishing using the SSH addon in HA. Based on the instructions, I need to perform the “workaround to disable Apex and Gasket”, which are explained here:
This is the step where I’m having trouble. As instructed, I made a file blacklist-apex.conf with Notepad on my Windows PC, and copied it to the config folder on the HA PC using the Samba addon. Then I copied it from there to the proper folder /etc/modprobe.d using Linux commands via SSH. After copying, I can confirm the file got copied into the folder using the Linux command “ls” to list out the files. However, when I reboot, the file disappears, and the workaround is not accomplished. This is where I’m stuck at the moment. I’m thinking that I’m doing something wrong regarding copying the file in Linux, mainly because I know very little about Linux. I suspect I’m make a novice error on the command line. Here is the commands I am entering to copy the file from /config to /etc/modprobe.d:
cp blacklist-apex.conf /etc/modprobe.d
The last command lists the files in the /etc/modprobe.d folder and it shows that the new file is indeed there. However after a reboot, it disappears.
I appreciate any help you guys can provide.
