Raspberry Pi image issues


I’ve downloaded the latest 2020-10-08-Raspbian-SatNOGS-lite image but I’m having trouble running satnogs setup. Traceback:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/var/lib/satnogs-config/bin/satnogs-config", line 8, in <module>
  File "/var/lib/satnogs-config/lib/python3.7/site-packages/satnogsconfig/__init__.py", line 27, in main

I’ve heard the same from a friend… he was not able to install the latest RPI image. Seems it is broken… He downloaded the previous image which was installing fine…

Thanks. Looks like I’ll have to try that. Cheers!

Should be fixed in https://gitlab.com/librespacefoundation/satnogs/satnogs-client-ansible/-/merge_requests/158 . Thanks for reporting!

Thanks! For others, workaround until new images are built is to install dialog package.

apt install dialog

There is no need to release a new image! The fix on Ansible is enough since satnogs-setup is updated during bootstrapping (first execution of satnogs-setup).

Even better, thanks for correction!
