Mender Artifact for RPi


I would like to build update artifacts on the RPi.

The 64 bit linux executable does not run on my RPi 3.

Can I build mender artifact for RPi? or is one already available?

Hi @AstralPresence we do have a debian package for the mender-artifact tool which is distributed for arm, see here for more information

Sorry for the noob question but how do I go about installing it> I’m currently running stretch.

apt update && apt install mender-artifact

should do the trick :slightly_smiling_face:

ah. i tried that first actually. But I had to add
deb stretch main
to my /etc/apt/sources.list and do an apt-update

on stock raspbian, we only have
deb stretch main contrib non-free rpi
and that doesnt contain the mender-artifact package.

Thanks a lot!

Unfortunately I’m unable to use the debian package version (really 2.4) to create an application level update artifact. Any suggestions?

Could you be a bit more precise in what you are trying to do/doing? And what the errors are?
