Installing RoonBridge on Debian Linux

Hi, I am trying to use the automated script to install Roon Bridge on a Debian machine. When I do

sudo ./

I see the welcome to the RoonBridge installer message and it asks me if I want to install on this machine. When I say Y, it says:

Downloading RoonBridge_linuxarmv7hf.tar.bz2 to /tmp/tmp.e7xdPbOwn5/RoonBridge_linuxarmv7hf.tar.bz2

and completes at 100%

However, at this point, I get the error message:

Unpacking RoonBridge_linuxarmv7hf.tar.bz2…tar (child): lbzip2: Cannot exec: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

The RoonBridge installer did not complete successfully.

Any advice on how I can resolve this?

Thank you.

Looks like you don’t have bzip2 installed.

Thank you so much! That did the trick.
