instructions for Debian and non-Debian Linux Operating Systems

To install the connectd package

If you have a Debian compatible OS, the auto-install.sh script will download and install a compatible Debian package on your system.

If you don't have a Debian compatible OS, the auto-install.sh script will download a compatible Debian tar file onto your system. Then just follow a few steps to install it.

Non-root user

To download and run the auto-install.sh script, copy and paste the following 3 lines to the device's console, then press the "Enter" key:

curl -LkO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/remoteit/installer/master/scripts/auto-install.sh
chmod +x ./auto-install.sh
sudo ./auto-install.sh

Root user

curl -LkO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/remoteit/installer/master/scripts/auto-install.sh
chmod +x ./auto-install.sh
./auto-install.sh

Debian OS:

The Debian architecture will be determined and a suitable package will be downloaded and installed using the "dpkg" command.

If you wish to install a tar package instead (e.g. in case the script can't find a compatible Debian package), then run:

sudo ./auto-install.sh f

Non-Debian OS:

Some files will be downloaded and tested in order to find a package which will run on your device. You may see some error messages during this step. Assuming that a matching package can be identified, the following instructions will be displayed for you to complete manually. The exact file name may be different than that shown below.

We downloaded the file connectd_2.4.26_arm-linaro-pi.tar to the current folder.
As root, or using sudo, move this file to the / folder.
e.g.
mv connectd_2.4.26_arm-linaro-pi.tar /
Now switch folders to the / folder, e.g.
cd /
Then extract the files to your system with the following command:
tar xvhf connectd_2.4.26_arm-linaro-pi.tar

After you run these commands, a list of files contained in the tar file will be found in /etc/connectd/builddate.txt.

If you don't see any warnings, run:

sudo connectd_installer

to proceed to configure your device.

If auto-install.sh cannot find a matching package, please contact support@remote.it with the output of the following commands:

uname -a
cat /etc/os-release
cat /proc/cpuinfo
file /bin/ls
