I have been using a software called OctoPrint that allows you to control your printer in your Browser. For sake of simplicity I have used Octopi, a preinstalled image with OctoPrint, but now I would like to make some changes, and I decided to build OctroPrint by myself, the instructions for building it are here: https://github.com/foosel/OctoPrint/wiki/Setup-on-a-Raspberry-Pi-running-Raspbian. The problem is that when I follow the first commands:

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade cd ~ sudo apt-get install python-pip python-dev python-setuptools python-virtualenv git libyaml-dev build-essential git clone https://github.com/foosel/OctoPrint.git cd OctoPrint virtualenv venv ./venv/bin/pip install pip --upgrade ./venv/bin/python setup.py install mkdir ~/.octoprint sudo usermod -a -G tty pi sudo usermod -a -G dialout pi 

And then I start the octoprint server

 ~/OctoPrint/venv/bin/octoprint 

The webpage of Octoprint freezes

enter image description here

I don't know if this is fixed in later commands, but I would like to get a sense of how all fits together before continue. It doesn't look that is the browser (I am capable to visit other websites without any problems), so is maybe Octoprint? How can I fix this? Did anyone have this problem before? Thanks in advance

Is it the Raspberry Pi that locks up, or just the webpage? If the whole thing becomes unresponsive I would consider reviewing your overclocking settings. If you've set one of the higher overclocking values in the config script, this can often lead to random lockups. If you don't see the config script every time you boot the Pi, you can access it by typing the following into a terminal window.

sudo raspi-config 

You can find out how to change the overclocking settings from the config script in this guide
