uname -i result "unknown"

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


This is my first post to this forum.  I am installing a software package on Armbian  5.60 stable Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) 4.14.70-sunxi for the Banana Pi M2+ and I have problem with the uname command in that when I pass the -i option it reports back unknown.


Now I am unsure what function the software calls to determine the platform architecture so I cannot script around it, but this issue is preventing me from moving forward now.  When I check some of the binaries with file command it reports back ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, ARM, EABI5.  Anyway this causes the software I am installing to fail, any suggestions as to how to fix this?


Thanks in advance, Rick
