How to run Tingbot-os on Raspbian.



  • I have the latest version of Raspbian and wondering how to run the Thingbot on it. I am missing some guide in the docs section. I stuck on dpkg -i tingbot-os.deb which needs some additional dependencies, eg.

    tingbot-os depends on libsdl1.2debian (= 1.2.15-5); however:
    Version of libsdl1.2debian:armhf on system is 1.2.15-10+rpi1.

    What kind of configuration or dependencies are needed to have it running there?

    Hi legoland

    Normally we recommend using one of the pre-made images disk.img, which is Raspbian Jessie underneath. (these are available here https://github.com/tingbot/tingbot-os/releases)

    However if you'd like to install Tingbot OS on an existing Raspbian install, it may be possible. We lock to a specific version of libsdl because of a bug that appeared in later versions. That version of SDL is here: https://github.com/tingbot/tingbot-os/raw/master/libsdl1.2debian_1.2.15-5_armhf.deb . Download and dpkg -i that, and it should resolve the above error.

    Cheers! Joe
