Cannot install drivers
« on: February 11, 2018, 17:40:10 »
Hi sorry newbie here.

I have installed everything from the guide and everything seemed to have gone smoothly. However when going to install a package it doesn't seem to locate it.

Are the packages still active in the repository? Or I have done something stupid?

From your distribution, I assume you are trying to install on a Raspberry Pi.  That version of ARM hardware is not supported by the driver.  The available ARM packages are for much older hardware, and Samsung never updated for the newer chips.

I don't know if that will change now that HP owns everything, but so far there has been no sign of updating the drivers.
