Hi all I have an old orange pi zero

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:
