Chromium in ARMv6 release

Post by gondarichi » Wed May 22, 2019 11:21 am


I'd like to ask if it's possible to put Chromium back in to the ARMv6 release. I'd like to use DietPi as WebKiosk on a Raspberry Pi Zero W.
I know that Chromium browser can run on ARMv6, since it's working with Raspbian with no problems on the same device.

Why was it taken out from the ARMv6 release? Is it possible to put it back?

Thank you for the answers in advance.

Hmm not sure why we took it out actually. Especially since Stretch we simply install the APT packages, so as long as they do not prompt an error message, they should work fine.

Please try do unlock it manually: nano /DietPi/dietpi/dietpi-software
Search for the first match of "software_id=113" (ctrl+w for searching)
Remove the line "aSOFTWARE_AVAIL_G_HW_ARCH[$software_id,1]=0" from this section.
- For this navigate to the line via arrow buttons and press ctrl+k.
- Then press ctrl+o to save and ctrl+x to exit.
Then retry the install.
