I consider this as  Alpha version FPP install  script, also been playing with the desktop version of Debian  Linux  to experiment with other software I can used.

Yes, I want to issue a big warning for anyone playing with this...

Since we haven't touched the install script in months, I can't say what the state of it is regarding using the master FPP_Install.sh script to install on Debian Jessie then switching FPP to the master-v1.x branch to run the stable version of FPP.  I will more than likely be breaking the master branch in the next week as I merge in the partially complete new playlist code I am working on for v2.0.  This is still a work in progress and there are a lot of regressions currently, so the master branch will not be usable for some playback related functions for a while.

Our focus going forward will be on v2.0 development in the master code branch, although I may backport some new channel outputs to master-v1.x to make it easier for some users to test those additions.

You're fine, I just don't want people going out and buying hardware until something is officially supported.  As long as people can provide useful bug reports and help test solutions then we are grateful for testers, otherwise I wouldn't post the instructions as I did.  :)

My skills are not upto being able to use the instructions without probably wasting peoples time - but am happy to do any testing later on when it is easier to install.

Last night I installed Debian Jessie onto my Pine64 512MB system and my ODROID-C1 and I have installed FPP onto both of them using a slightly modified FPP_Install.sh.

I'm leaving these running on my desk so I can do some long-term stability testing and then will be using them to test the new code on as I continue to work on v2.0 changes.

For anyone looking to do this and help test, here are the images I used:

Pine64:
https://www.pine64.pro/downloads/#Debian-Linux  (Use the "Debian Base (3.10.102 BSP 2)" image)


My Pine64 came today and this download now gives an Error 404 message.

Is there another source? (I didn't find one)

Going through the forums, it looks like there are some downloads available from http://cdn.pine64.uk/Debian/


You might want to give that a try!

The Canadian site does still have it. Thanks.

It appears that the eth0 and wlan0 are on different buses and can co-exist in the same subnet.

That eth0 is a gigabit connection is potentially a nice thing, too.

Version: v1.5-stage-633-g4f7f2b3 (master branch) is the only branch I've tried so far.

The eth0/wlan0 issue is probably that eth0 is first in the route table since it isn't attached via USB like on the Pi.  I still would recommend putting them on different subnets until we get Jay's patches merged in.
