SBC3 and Java install issue

Postby dstockman12 » Fri Dec 27, 2019 11:50 am

I have been using an SBC3 for a number of years without a problem to monitor my renewable energy system. Recently I lost wifi connection with it. I did a soft reboot, physically removed and attached the wifi antenna, then a factory reset. I am attempting to reinstall the software but running into a problem. I updated system packages. I had been using phidget21, but somewhere along the update process the system suggested I should update to phidget22, which I did. I now have both phidget21 and phidget22 installed. When I attempt to install the java packages, I get errors with the install and the Java button does not change to installed. See below. I reinstalled my program and associated libs folder/files. I get the "java: not found" error. The file being listed does exist in the directory. Hopefully someone can help get my system back up. I probably don't need a system upgrade because this SBC3 has been meeting my needs for years. Thanks for any help offered.

Updating to my own question.

Java install was failing because debian 'wheezy' version obsolete so multiple files could not be found. There were moved to archive. I did a kludge which may break other aspects of the SBC3 operation, but I have my program running again. Using SSH and Putty, I updated the debian version to 'jessie'. This allowed me to then install jre 7.

In etc/apt I placed a file sources.list, which contained the following links: (oops, cannot place links on web site)


Then I ran apt-get commands to update or upgrade or both (sorry, new to linux and I closed that browser window). Then I did an apt-get install-jre-headless (or something similar).

This worked for now.

In case anyone runs into similar issues with legacy systems.

You will need to update the apt sources file, as Debian 7 has been archived.

This file can be updated using the file editor in the web interface system area.

See: viewtopic.php?f=39&t=9377#p30076

Upgrading SBC3 to Debian 8 is likely to fail in unexpected ways, as the older kernel is not 100% compatible with Debian 8.
