Pi Zero - manual installation of metronome fails

I tried to follow the steps for installation for the Raspberry Pi Zero on https://yunohost.org/#/install_on_raspberry including the metronome Installation by hand:

Either with or without sudo it fails @0.1 line 5:

~/metronome-debian-3.7.9-33b7572-1 $ sudo dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -b -d
dpkg-buildpackage: warning: using a gain-root-command while being root
dpkg-buildpackage: source package metronome

make: dh: Command not found
debian/rules:7: recipe for target ‘clean’ failed
make: *** [clean] Error 127
dpkg-buildpackage: error: fakeroot debian/rules clean gave error exit status 2

(in general: 1st line must be executed with sudo?!)

The Pi Zero has the latest headless Raspbian Jessie lite Image 2017-01-11 from https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/

Any ideas?

@no.1 Hmm that’s weird, these steps were working without any problem with the Raspbian from september. It seems that you are missing the dh-make package, run sudo apt-get install dh-make to fix that and try again.

If that didn’t work, then these commands should do the trick:

wget -q https://raw.githubusercontent.com/likeitneverwentaway/rpi_buildbot/master/metronome_3.7.9+33b7572-1_armhf.deb

dpkg -i metronome_3.7.9+33b7572-1_armhf.deb

apt-mark hold metronome

Good luck!

You need to install dh-autoreconf and quilt:

apt-get install dh-autoreconf quilt

Same problem with metronome

Hi @arnal ,

Try to install YunoHost from the last Jessie image :

Old french “how to” there :

WARNING : you have to check your /etc/apt/sources.list before update/upgrade in order to DO NOT upgrade to Stretch.


Thanks ! I’ll use your tip and tell you if I can install Yunohost on the raspberry pi zero w :slight_smile:

I have the same issue but I’m not getting further than this:

Hi @lil5 ,

YunoHost is not yet fully compatible with Stretch … but it might be soon.
For now, you can try to install YunoHost stable based on Jessie.

I hope it could helps you.
