recently I couldn’t start osmc for some strange error and I had to make the system new.
I installed version 20200204 and then tried to install docker as described here with the convenience script exactly as I did beginning of the year.
Unfortunately that does not work. It shows the error:
The code is a bit iffy WRT OSMC. The block of code you highlight is only run if this check:succeeds:
# Check for lsb_release command existence, it usually exists in forked distros
if command_exists lsb_release; then
but the whole premise is questionable (as is the assertion that “OSMC runs Raspbian”). On my installation of OSMC (installed from a 2020.01 image), there is no lsb_release command, so the lsb_dist=raspbian line is never entered.
The least-hassle workaround is to install the lsb-release package – but the the real problem is with the shell script.
thanks for your fast reply. That would be great if it will work. I really like OSMC because of the ability to install many other programs. I am running some software like OpenHAB in parallel to OSMC and found problems during OSMC updates when not running it in docker.
So will it work if I install lsb-release? Or is there a better short term workaround?
Actually I had the thing up and running from beginning of this year until my SD-card crashed :-(. I took notes on what I did, but obvioulsy missed an important part.
For me lsb-release was the only thing needed to make the docker installation script working.
I followed that instruction: Install Docker Engine on Debian
Unfortunately I couldn’t try above fix. I have only one Raspi, which is running OpenHAB for controlling my home by voice and OSMC with some extra programs added, to use the Harddisk attached also as a NAS. The content for OSMC automatically synchronises with my computer. So it is a work of minimum one day if something crashes to have a fresh installation and everything up and running.
Just wonder how can I check that lsb-release is installed on current version of osmc? We are on buster now, aren’t we? the stretch-devel source @sam_nazarko provided above is still needed?
Thanks for reply
ok thanks a lot! I have got lsb-release and I am trying to install docker but after I launch the script I got “dpkg returned an error code (1)” message.
If I try docker run hello-worldI got Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///var/run/docker.sock. Is the docker daemon running?
What should I do?
