opencpn and A20-OLinuXino-MICRO

I bought a A20-OLinuXino-MICRO in order to install opencpn.
I dont have to mention the advantages of the board running Linux.
BUT I tried everything I know of to install opencpn and failed. Probably the A20 processor is not supported. So could a genius or just somebody with the knowledge help me a bit.
Regards Willy Carota.


I followed this:

Wheezy (7.0)
Add line saying "deb Index of /opencpn/opencpn/ubuntu oneiric main" to /etc/apt/sources.list
In terminal, execute the following commands:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys C865EB40 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install opencpn

Willy...
You can't use i386 packages on a machine with an ARM processor. Your best bet is to build from source.

From their user manual it looks like Linux is not fully supported yet. It comes with Android.

Additional Android and Linux support and features are added overtime. The Linux support is a work in progress and you should not expect full Linux support after the initial volume of such boards have become available on the market. If you are in a hurry consider the older OLinuXino designs (which have almost everything supported, have examples available and so on).

Re: opencpn and A20-OLinuXino-MICRO

Sorry guys, I posted my question on a bad moment. I was abroad for a week but now I am back and can reply.

Linux is running fine, that is not the problem.
Opencpn wil not run.
To build from source: could be a possibility.
