[jitsi-users] Jitsi meet on Raspbian


#1

Hello there,

i want to host my own jitsi meet server on my RasPi 2, but atm. I am
unable to do so.

I tried the quick install via:
https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/quick-install.md

This is what i get:

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
jitsi-meet : Depends: jitsi-videobridge but it is not installable
              Depends: jitsi-meet-prosody but it is not going to be
installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
#########################

So i tried the manual install instead
https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/manual-install.md

When it comes to:

wget https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi-videobridge/linux/jitsi-videobridge-linux-{arch-buildnum}.zip
unzip jitsi-videobridge-linux-{arch-buildnum}.zip

I noticed, there is no arm version of video bridge.
I could dowload the sources and give that a try, but i thought it might
be a better idea asking here, since i don't think I am the only one
trying to install jitsi meet on a PI /arm device.

Any ideas?

Thanks and best regards
KB

You should be able to build the java code and run it on arm, but there will be some issues because of missing native libraries. I think this should only affect data channels (and so active speaker switches in the Jitsi-Meet UI), because of libjnsctp.so, and possibly SRTP performance because of libjnopenssl.so.

Regards,
Boris

About the apt-get failure, which version of Raspbian are you using? Maybe jitsi-videobridge is not in the repo of the Raspbian version that you’re using?
