X-LINUX-AWS Starter Package

All the generated X-LINUX-AWS packages are available from the OpenSTLinux AWS package repository service hosted at the non-browsable URL

1. Install from the OpenSTLinux AWS package repository[edit source]

Info white.png Information
The STMicroelectronics package repository service is provided for evaluation purposes only. Its content might be updated at any time without notice and is therefore not approved for use in production.

This repository contains AWS packages that can be simply installed using apt-* utilities, which are the same as those used on a Debian® system:

  • The main group contains the selection of AWS packages, the installation of which is automatically tested by STMicroelectronics.
  • The updates group is reserved for future uses such as package revision update.

You can install them individually or by package group.

1.1. Prerequisites[edit source]

  • Your board has a direct (no proxy) connection to the Internet, either through the network cable or through a Wi-Fi® connection.

1.2. Configure the AWS OpenSTLinux package repository[edit source]

Once the board is booted, execute the following command in the console to configure the AWS OpenSTLinux package repository:

For ecosystem release v5.0.0 More info.png :

  • Move to the apt archives directory :
 cd /var/cache/apt/archives
  • Retrieve the specific package apt-openstlinux-aws_1.0_armhf.deb:
  • Install this package:
 apt-get install ./apt-openstlinux-aws_1.0_armhf.deb
Warning white.png Warning
This command might issue the following warning message or a similar one:
"Download is performed unsandboxed as root as file '/home/root/apt-openstlinux-aws_1.0_armhf.deb' couldn't be accessed by user '_apt'. - pkgAcquire::Run (13: Permission denied)".

You can safely ignore it.

  • Then, synchronize the AWS OpenSTLinux package repository.
 apt-get update
