Install fails on RPI 3B

I’m trying to install on my RPU 3B, which has a recent install of bullseye version 11.
I’m following the instructions found in the INSTALL.md.
I’ve changed Make -j to make and I’m getting the error below with or without the -j:

Good morning,

Can you try using the build script to see if the error is the same? Our INSTALL.md file may be a bit outdated.

wfview was not compiled.

As it is a Pi3B, it is likely running out of RAM during the compile, try editing line 153 and remove “-j2” from the line “make -j2” and then run the script again. -j2 tells Make to run up to two simultaneous compiles.

Hi

That’s annoying as I had hoped reducing the number of simultaneous compiles would help? Are you running the latest Pi OS as there may be issues in older versions?

I am pretty sure people have successfully compiled wfview on the 3B? I know it works on the Pi4 but haven’t tried it on older models myself?

Hi Roninbako,

How much ram do you have on the Pi? Can you run the command dmesg right after the crash to see if there are any useful messages?

You might be able to scrape by (if it is a memory issue) by creating a large swap space temporarily. And also making sure you’re using make -j1 in the build script so that it is only one CPU chugging at a time.

See here for the swap command:

https://forums.raspberrypi.com/viewtopic.php?t=142243

Also try reducing your GPU memory to the minimum that you can, just while you’re doing the compile.

I’m confident memory is your issue, it seems to be something that comes up with the Pi.
