I use Armbian Buster on ODROID-C2. I try to install the package "syslinux" with apt, but it's not there. What now?

 


apt install syslinux

Package syslinux is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'syslinux' has no installation candidate

Help Armbian team helping you!

Ok, I don't really know what that means but it sounds like it's difficult or impossible. I wanted to create bootable Windows sticks, which requires syslinux to prepare the USB stick. The famous bash script "bootiso" requires it.

 

I did it with a Windows PC now but, yeah, it's no big deal but a little sad. I use my Armbian device to prepare many things which are not used on ARM and it would be cool if not too much is left out vs. regular Debian.

maybe you have only not apt-searched for syslinux? :)
try to
apt install syslinux-common
which is available in armbian :)
