Support of Debian Stretch


#1

Anything regarding the support of debian stretch planned?


#2

We’re excited about Stretch, and we anticipate supporting it shortly. Lots of things to check.


#3

I have run Malos on Stretch for some minutes but now i am back on Jessie and will wait for an official support :slight_smile:

If i remember correctly i had to replace several dependencies for MC packages within /var/lib/apt and /var/lib/dpkg, for instance zmq, and used symbolic links for libraries to match new ones. Malos started but not in the background, a short test with Malos micarray was successful.


#4

Can you share the exact Jessie Desktop or Lite image you started with to get the Matrix One Creator board working ? Did you follow the steps from https://github.com/matrix-io/matrix-creator-hal or somewhere else to get things working ?

(From http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/images/ or http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian_lite/images/)


#5

I don’t use the MC anymore as PyAudio / Pulseaudio is not supported.

Before I followed their standard documentation regarding installation with debian Jessie, version was from end of June. At least micarrays with Alsa and LEDs worked. Search the forum for arecord or alsa.

@kwiatks,
You should be good using the latest Rapsbian Stretch :

If you want to use our lower C++ library called HAL go to instructions here. You can also use NodeJS from the MOS layer here

Let know us how it goes.
