Installing TargetAgent on Armbian / Debian (Buster) H3 build

Hello
I am trying to install the remoteit Target Agent on an Armbian / Debian (Buster) build for a ARM H3 ( Quad-Core Cortex-A7 ARM) device (similar to Orange Pi PC+ board.)

I chose " Debian arm64" from the Supported Platforms list on the page, but I got the error message below indicating the incorrect architecture “arm64” and suggesting “armhf”

Is there a Target Agent download available for this Architecture?

I have previously used the CLI package labelled “ARMv7” successfully on this platform.
(from the downloads page https://downloads.remote.it/cli/latest/remoteit_linux_armv7)

Thanks in advance for any help with this.

What do you get from

sudo dpkg --print-architecture

?

It will probably be armhf. Use this package instead. I know it says “Raspberry Pi OS” but it really could be any Debian based armhf OS.

Thanks.
I am out of the office for a few days so I will check it out then.

Hi Gary

I set it up using the “RPi” armhf package as you suggested and all is well.

I wonder if it might be worth considering renaming the package at some point so that it is not RPi specific - just to avoid confusion.

So now we have a consistent process across products using the ARM/Debian platform and the OpenWrt platform.

Thanks again for your help.

Thanks for the update Terry. I agree about the naming.
