Gogs not available for Odroid C2?

Hi,

I intended to install Gogs on my Odroid C2, but it is not listed in the available software list and I have found one post suggesting it might not be available for this specific board.

Is that so?

If so, why? and dhould I be able to install it in my own or the C2 is fundamentally incompatible with Gogs for some reason?

My interest in Gogs is that I am looking for the lightest Git alternative that I could find, and I´m under the impression that it is much lighter than Gitea.

Any insights will be appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi,

you could run following to check if a software title is available or blocked for your device

Code: Select all

dietpi-software list | grep gogs
Of course you are free to install it manually yourself.

Hi,

ok, that outputs ...
gogs: personal github server with web interface | +git +mariadb disabled for aarch64 | viewtopic.php?p=2187#p2187
...which confirms it is not available for this specific arch.

I'm curious as to why though, so I can asses if it is something I can eventually resolve or it is plain impossible with this board.

Thanks.

probably due to aarch64 architecture. I guess @MichaIng knows why it's disabled.

Yes there were no ARMv8 binaries available until just the very last release: https://github.com/gogs/gogs/releases/
:D I'll implement/enable it tomorrow for next release, you should be able to apply the changes manually then.

EDIT: Fix on the way: https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/pull/3922
Since the file names have been reasonably standardised, sadly a one-liner fix is not that easy, although the following would work:
Remove this line to enable it for ARMv8: https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/pull ... ef8c5L1015
Replace the URL in the very first fallback_url: https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/pull ... ef8c5L5224
with: https://github.com/gogs/gogs/releases/d ... mv8.tar.gz
which is the currently latest (and only) ARMv8 build.

hey there, thanks a Ton for the help.

I had noticed the newly released ARMv8 build and was looking at attempting to install it somehow, but I'm much happier following your advice!

I'll come back once I had made some progress.

Regards.

Alright!! I think I got it running already!! Thank you @MichaIng for the help :D

what I did, although probably not exactly what you had in mind, was to get the git version of dietpi-software and run it locally to install Gogs. Then I followed the instructions provided in DietPi' s website

viewtopic.php?p=2187#p2187

to configure Gogs.

The only thing that I had to tweak was that the pass for the "gogs" user in mysql/mariadb was not set up as "dietpi" as the instructions state (*) . I went around this by changing the db user at the console and used the new "known" password for the web installer.

(*) Now that I think about it the pass was probably the "global" one that DietPi allows us to setup when configuring a fresh instance...hmmm, I should have thought that earlier :? ...

Anyway, it is running now! Wohoo!

Now I just have to learn to use it so I can tell if I got it running properly too with this maneuvering :P

Thank you again!
Cheers.

Yes usually global application password is used. Can you link the website you found incorrect information on. I will go to correct it.

Hi,

this post in DietPi' s forum was my reference...:

viewtopic.php?p=2187#p2187

... but I got there not by searching the forum but by going from the home page at www. dietpi.com -> Features -> DietPi Software -> Gogs -> How do I use this software?
