What is the problem?

Installation on bullseye

What did you already try to solve it?

I did it with buster

Have you tried running in safe mode?

Is there an image of Octoprint with bullseye OS ?
I have an octoprint running on buster and I would like to upgrade it on bullseye.
So, I have reinstalled it using Raspberry PI Imager. But the OS is still buster.
So, could you help pto install the last release of Octoprint on bullseye ?
Thank in advance

If you don't have a need to upgrade your OS to Bullseye (and don't know how to), I wouldn't recommend just trying to do it for the sake of it. The latest stable OctoPi version is 0.18, which is based on Buster.

You can of course install an RPi OS Bullseye image and install OctoPrint yourself using the guide linked on the download page.

If you would like to get involved in testing a new OctoPi image (which is Bullseye-based), you can do that too although you must be prepared to come across potential bugs - there's a reason it is not a stable release yet.

Thanks for your answer.
I haven't a real need to upgrade to bullseye except buster will be no more support very soon.
So, I am really surprised Octoprint is still running on buster

There were quite a few changes that broke compatibility with the move to bullseye (throwing out the old video hardware encoder was quite painful), as well as supporting the 64 bit builds & new 'userless' first-boot system from the Raspberry Pi foundation made it a pain. You can see the work that is ongoing to try and get the image stable, it has taken a while.

Ok, so, wait and see.

It got longtime support until 2024-06-30

Sure of that ?
I thought it was 2022.

I hear what you say.
But I have a camera: ArduCam 16 MP autofocus that I would like to get working. Presently it is not being recognised to create the 2 video devices. I'm clutching at straws, but there is a possibility its only supported on Raspbian 11. At least thats what its documentation says. And certain of the builds required fail during compilation, and some of the shell scripts too.
The camera documentation indicates its easy to get working. so, misleading, to that extent, like a lot of things....

BUT: The strongest possibility is that the camera hardware is cactus, and so I have emailed the supplier to try them out for a replacement, but meanwhile this pathway to upgrade the OS seems plausible. I could also try out your RC2 of Octoprint, selecting the 64 bit version, and see if it works (or at least, mostly works).

sry I missed your question

Yes I'm sure :slight_smile:

Try this guide (but use the latest nightly from the pi imager instead)
