Hi there,

I've problems with executing https://ubuntu.bigbluebutton.org/bbb-install-2.5.sh on a freshly installed ubuntu server. I did not have a desktop iso, may this be the problem?

bbb-install: This script can only install BigBlueButton 2.5 (or later) and is meant to be run on Ubuntu 20.04 (focal) server.

lsb_release
LSB Version: core-11.1.0ubuntu2-noarch:printing-11.1.0ubuntu2-noarch:security-11.1.0ubuntu2-noarch

lsb_release -r
Release: 20.04

sb_release -a
LSB Version: core-11.1.0ubuntu2-noarch:printing-11.1.0ubuntu2-noarch:security-11.1.0ubuntu2-noarch
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS
Release: 20.04
Codename: focal

lsb_release -c
Codename: focal

$1 in check_ version is empty for me. 

What are the right values?

Hi Reimar,

Can you post an output of the error messages you encountered.

Hi Fred

there is no error message only

bbb-install: This script can only install BigBlueButton 2.5 (or later) and is meant to be run on Ubuntu 20.04 (focal) server.

I currently do a second ubuntu 2004 server setup

I then added an echo to the check script and it returns an empty string.

Hi Reimar,

If you download the script, set it to be executable, and then modify the first line to read

#!/bin/bash -ex

then you'll see each line being executed, and the last line that returned a non-zero value.

Regards,... Fred

Hi there,

The second server installation is running the script as expected now. 

Next time I run in this I try that option. 

(Unfortunately I purged the old image by the second one)

Hi there,

I played a little with it looks *very good* so far. Need more user feedback which I likely get in the next few days.
