but i am having trouble with install using the DOCS

my setup till now is like this maybe i am missing something

O PI Zero
CC2531 not connected yet… still on my old setup
OS: armbian (buster, and i am not sure what it means there is also bionic version )
maybe i need to install something that is not in the docs?
maybe i need to enable something?

i got to the pioint below after Git clone
when i do npm install
i am getting errors

i tried with every sudo and vodoo method out there please help!!! :slight_smile:

This should be the clue :

yep so did the all the below

  1. sudo chown -R pi:pi /opt/zigbee2mqtt
  2. install with sudo
  3. sudo -i
    3.install as root …
  4. install with --unsafe-perm
  5. sudo npm install -g --allow-root
  6. add pi to souders

nothing works!!!

Did you try su ?
(20 chars minimum)

no can you please explain ??

You enter su on the command line. Then everything after this command is executed as superuser (root)

nothing helps i guess i missing something on this armbian distro
something not installed by docs maybe if anyone has experience with armbian please tell me :slight_smile:

Hi I tryed to run Z2M on orange pi zero and I’m gettin errors.
Linux: Armbian_20.02.0-rc1_Orangepizero_buster_current_5.4.14.img

Do you have any ideas?

orangepi@orangepizero:~$ sudo git clone https://github.com/Koenkk/zigbee2mqtt.git /opt/zigbee2mqtt

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System

#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility.

Have you tried running it in Docker?
It usually takes care of all the dependencies for you and keeps it all containerised.

Something like this although it might not be 100% as I’m reworking a docker-compose file.

  • curl -fsSL https://get.docker.com -o get-docker.sh
  • sh get-docker.sh
  • sudo usermod -aG docker $your_user
  • restart your session to load the group add in
  • finally
 docker run -d \
  --name zigbee2mqtt \
  --restart unless-stopped \
  -v /opt/zigbee2mqtt/data:/app/data \
  --device=/dev/ttyACM0 \
  -e TZ=Europe/London \
  -v /run/udev:/run/udev:ro \
  --privileged=true \
  koenkk/zigbee2mqtt

Thanks,
I’ve tried, but Docher hardware requirementr are to hight, its only Orange Pi Zero H2 Quad Core 256MB RAM:).When I install Docker the system has crushed.
