I don't know whether this project was dead or not. I've tried to get Byz up and running on my RaspPi using the wget ....... | bash installl.sh

Didn't work - appeared that puppet didn't load and I also got some
error messages upon install viz:

err: /Stage[main]/Byzpi::Services::Sysvinit/Service[ssl]: Could not evaluate: Could not find init script for 'ssl'
notice: /Stage[main]/Byzpi::Services::Sysvinit/Exec[/usr/sbin/update-rc.d ssl defaults]: Dependency Service[ssl] has failures: true
warning: /Stage[main]/Byzpi::Services::Sysvinit/Exec[/usr/sbin/update-rc.d ssl defaults]: Skipping because of failed dependencies
notice: /Stage[main]/Byzpi::Services::Sysvinit/Service[apache2]: Dependency Service[ssl] has failures: true
warning: /Stage[main]/Byzpi::Services::Sysvinit/Service[apache2]: Skipping because of failed dependencies

Upon reboot we were still in the original OS

Is this project still going and can anyone suggest a simple way
to get this running?

Thanks

Do you have Puppet error messages captured, by chance?

`ls -ltr /etc/init.d`

What do you see at the bottom of the listing? Is the /etc/init.d/ssl
script in there?

The ssl service depends on the apache2 service. Could Apache not have
been installed, in which case it's a bug in our Puppet manifest?

`dpkg --list | grep -i 'apache'`

ByzPi is not dead. The core team's lives sort of went sideways after
v0.5b was published. We are planning to convene in the near future
(and could really use a few more pairs of hands!)

Hi,

A while ago I tried installng ByzPi but failed. Next Thursday I'm leaving for Nepal to go install 8 computerclasses there. Due to the internet and power limitations there I just thought of taking a Pi with ByzPi with us, so our team of 4 can at least easily create a small network.

I'm going to try again (if I find the time this weekend) if I can get a ByzPi up and running, starting from a clean raspbian and using the tips above.

But if I don't succeed, is there an image available somewhere I can download or torrent and just put on an SD and boot? (or could somebody share one?)

THX

An image which can be downloaded, pressed to an SD card, and booted
from this directory:
