I'm using a fresh beaglebone debian 7.9 armhf image and need to do some additional setup. Despite EoL being May 2018, the apt sources have still been available until recently. They are no longer available and are yet in the archives, either, at least not here.
So what is my best option for installing a few packages one time on Debian 7.9? I've attached the list below, and the best option may be different for different packages. The system has gcc and make, but not cmake... of course I can check others. It has git 220.127.116.11.
- ftp - preferred, but not essential
sqlite3- installed from source
Perhaps it will be as easy as downloading
pkg files and installing manually with dpkg. If so, how do I determine and find the correct versions? Maybe if someone can walk me through one example, I can figure out the rest.
$ uname -a Linux beaglebone 3.8.13-bone79 #1 SMP Tue Oct 13 20:44:55 UTC 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux
For those who can't resist suggesting that I just upgrade: we are working on that. I have so far been unable to enable the UARTs in Stretch and even Jessie, and the documentation for that in sparse and/or contradictory. In the meantime, this would be helpful for our fairly restricted use case.
