Argon One script installation script freeze with OS Lite 64 bit install

Clean install, no other software on my Raspberry Pi 4. I’ve repeated the install procedure 10 times without success, formatting the SD card every time.

I’m going to return this product if software can’t be properly installed.

After launching the script it freezes at “Created symlink”… even after reboot, manually try to start the service result in a freeze:

pi@Raspberry-Pi-4:~ $ sudo systemctl status argononed.service
● argononed.service - Argon One Fan and Button Service
     Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/argononed.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
     Active: inactive (dead)

Basically I have the same problem of this different model: Argoneon script stuck

Did you ever get a fix for this? I have a very similar situation. I believe it is related to the i2c bus which doesn’t seem to be loading.

I get the error “modprobe: FATAL: Module i2c-dev not found in directory /lib/modules/5.15.76-v8+” When I run the argon1.sh script.

Yes sure. make sure you create the “Pi” user when you format the SD drive. At least for me it fixes the problem all the times.
