Installing wget and unzip

Postby OutWestSystems » Tue Jan 28, 2014 5:32 pm

I just received the 1072 SBC today. I was trying to set up the full python and I was following the install guide. I did a apt-get install wget and I am getting a "E: Unable to locate package wget". Same error on trying to install unzip. I am kind of stuck now.

make sure you enable the full package repo in the web interface packages page.

After I selected "Include full Debian Package Repository" and upgraded the packages it worked. Might want to include that in the docs.

It is already mentioned in the getting started guide, at the beginning of the Debian Linux section. I can see how it could be easily missed, though.

Is there any way to install the full Debian Package Repository without the web interface. The latter does not work for me.

Uncomment the deb lines in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/multistrap-debian.list

then run 'apt-get update'
