Connecting - error while loading shared libraries:

Running Jessie and it just says it’s connecting. Run flotilla on the CLI and only get this error - flotilla: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

All up to date already followed a couple of posts on here but no luck.

libboost-filesystem1.50.0 shouldn’t be needed on Jessie (libboost-filesystem1.55.0 is used instead).

What do you mean by running flotilla on the CLI, call /usr/bin/flotilla manually?

Getting exactly the same here. When I connect up using Rockpool from the menus it just says “Searching for Flotilla…” but when I plug stuff in the lights come on, and I get the talking light slowly flashing.

When I run flotilla from Terminal, I get the same shared libraries error message. This is a vanilla Raspbian install which has ran the apt-get upgrade as recommended before cloning from github and running the install.


Same as mine tottally fresh download of jessie and completly fresh install, all updates and upgrades done followed instruction on Flotilla/start/

sudo apt-get install libboost-system1.50.0 libboost-filesystem1.50.0 libboost-program-options1.50.0

… that should get you going.
