Webcontrol Raspberry 400 /Ubuntu

I’ve installed Webcontrol on my brandnew Raspberry 400, running Ubuntu 20.10 (64it).

When i try to start the service manually i get the following error:

bs@bs-werkstaette:~/webcontrol$ ./webcontrol
bash: ./webcontrol: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error

The status request gives me:

    bs@bs-werkstaette:~/webcontrol$ sudo systemctl status webcontrol
    ● webcontrol.service - WebControl
         Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/webcontrol.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)

    Nov 27 09:27:12 bs-werkstaette systemd[1]: Failed to start WebControl.

I’ve no idea whats going wrong and the service want start. I’ve tried it as weel as su User.
Kindly ask to help and troubleshot.

which version did you install? The raspberry pi version is for a 32 bit OS. That would be something to check on.

Orob,

i’ve installed the Deban-Version, not the Raspberry Version. Version is
v0.920 on Ubuntu 20.10 (64it).

I was hoping it would be something easy…

Install the raspberry version, the debian version is setup for x86 processors,
not ARM procssors.

Installed the RPI version now.

When i start it manually it get a

bs@bs-werkstaette:~/webcontrol$ ./webcontrol
bash: ./webcontrol: No such file or directory

…and yes, i’m in the right directory and the file is here.

The status request gives me now a different error:

bs@bs-werkstaette:~/webcontrol$ systemctl status webcontrol
● webcontrol.service - WebControl
     Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/webcontrol.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)

Looks like that the 32bit RPI version will not run unter Ubuntu 20.10 (64bit). Also the Ubuntu i386 binary packages are not longer available. Someone any idea?
