Updating Gimx on rpi

Post by kamperkilla87 »

Hello everyone it's been a long time. Anyways I'm wanting to try Gimx out again. I had a rough time trying to get Gimx installed, I did finally manage though. Now I'm trying to update it to the latest version and I'm facing issues. https://ibb.co/vQK7KKj

Hi you have to add sudo for apt to work

Code: Select all

sudo apt --fix-broken install

Yeah unfortunately I get the same error. Idk what's going on, it installed Gimx 7.15 without a problem. I'd like to try the latest version though. Do you know of anywhere where I can get an image with the latest Gimx pre installed?

Thats actually quite strange what Raspberry pi are you using and are you on the latest version of the OS ?

I know on the Pi4 they normally had issues with the installer trying to override `/usr/bin/bdaddr

This was resolved by forcing an overwrite

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --force-overwrite -i gimx_8.0-1_armhf.deb  

sudo apt-get install -f

Hi sorry for the delay I tested it myself to see if I can help you this is the version I installed, I used Raspberry pi imager and selected Raspberry Pi OS legacy version 32 bit

Hard to run the two commands to force it to install and install dependencies

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --force-overwrite -i gimx_8.0-1_armhf.deb  

sudo apt-get install -f
