MotionEye on RasPi1 with BullsEye missing

Post by omavoss »

Hello,
I want to install MotionEye on my RasPi1, but I can't find the 136. What am I doing wrong?

- Device model : RPi B (armv6l)

Many thanks and friendly greetings.

I guess it's blocked on your device. Can be checked by running

Code: Select all

dietpi-software list | grep 136

you are running the new Debian Bullseye image if I'm not mistaken and the software title is disabled.

Code: Select all

DISABLED for Debian bullseye 
Probably you would need to use Buster.

Because it's not yet supported?

@MichaIng
I guess you know the exact reason

Time to fix this ;)
But first let's await the reason why it's not supported yet.
I am on a Pi3B+ BTW.

Probably it's Motioneye and not DietPi 😉

It is disabled, since it requires the soon 2 years deprecated Python 2, while on Bullseye only Python 3 is shipped, and we won't hack an insecure Python version back in.

I checked back, and while this is still true for the latest release and what pip/PyPI ships, at least there is a Python 3 branch now: https://github.com/ccrisan/motioneye/tree/python3

So while it may not be stable yet, but in theory pip can pull it from there directly. I also checked piwheels.org, and they list a wheel there, for "any" Python 3 version: https://piwheels.org/project/motioneye/
But the green batches are missing to indicate on which distro version it is functional :?.

Time to retest :).
