I’m trying to install Remote.it on a RaspberryPi Zero which already has HomeBridge installed, and with that also node.js.
When I try to install Remote.it, it gives an error:
pi@homebridge:/ $ sudo apt install remoteit
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
remoteit : Depends: nodejs but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
HomeBridge is a disk image from the official distribution:
See also this special note from the documentation for this Homebridge install:
The installation of Node.js on arm32v6 devices such as the Raspberry Pi 1 and Raspberry Pi Zero is not supported by the official repository using the steps above. Instead use the following commands to install Node.js.
# update repos
sudo apt-get update
# install deps
sudo apt-get install -y gcc g++ make python git
# install node and npm
sudo curl -Lf# “https://unofficial-builds.nodejs.org/download/release/v12.18.2/node-v12.18.2-linux-armv6l.tar.gz” | sudo tar xzf - -C /usr/local --strip-components=1 --no-same-owner
# test node is working
node -v command gives me:
Any help, in simple terms please, would be greatly appreciated!
