Problems with Raspberry Pi 'Wheezy'


Recommended Posts



I just downloaded and installed Wheezy for my Rasp Pi.

But i'm running into problems when i wan't to install the brickd.

I'm using this guide: http://www.tinkerforge.com/doc/Embedded/Raspberry_Pi.html


When I get to the 4th line of code the Raspb Pi stops with the error:

dpkg: error processing brickd_linux_latest_armhf.deb (--install):
package architecture (armhf) does not match system (armel)
Errors were encountered while processing:


Anybody god an idea what's wrong. I'm not too familiar with Linux :(

So you are using stock debian? We currently don't have armel builds, our .deb is for armhf.


The difference is described here: http://www.memetic.org/raspbian-benchmarking-armel-vs-armhf/


You can either switch to Raspbian or you can build brickd yourself from source (https://github.com/Tinkerforge/brickd):

sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0-0-dev libudev-dev build-essential
cd src/brickd
