Can't instal IoT devkit on ubuntu 15.10

Jump to solution

Hello all,

just yesterday I received my Intel Edison board and I was trying to install the IoT devkit but without success. The installer check the OS version and doesn't let me go any further than that since I have ubuntu 15.10. Is there any way of installing IoT in my machine?

Hi jrsall92,

Are you downloading this file: https://software.intel.com/sites/landingpage/iotdk/linux-development-kit.html IoT Download - Linux* Development Kit ?

Also, could you post a screenshot of when you get the error message?

On Ubuntu 15.10, are you doing the following?

  1. Download the file
  2. Extract the files from the iotdk-ide-linux.tar.bz2
  3. Open a new Terminal Session
  4. Go to the folder where are the extracted files
  5. Run cd iotdk-ide-linux
  6. Run ./devkit-launcher

As mhahn said, which java version do you have in your machine?

Regards,

Charlie

what's the error message of the installer?

do you potentially miss the right Java version?

The error is that my OS is not supported.

The file provided in the link worked after a reset of my laptop. BTW I'm using Oracle's Java 8 (can't remember the version number).
