Trying to install Rstudio on Pinebook Pro


recently I bought myself a pinebook pro. After I was able to compile R from the source codes I thought about installing RStudio "from scratch" as well. Since I also found encouraging links in the internet (see I thought it would be doable. However, when I try to invoke

sudo ./install-dependencies-debian

I am, first of all, quite puzzled that all R/libraries are again installed from scratch, second I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/opt/rstudio-tools/depot_tools/", line 75, in


File "/opt/rstudio-tools/depot_tools/", line 70, in main

return[gn_path] + args[1:])

File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 168, in call

return Popen(*popenargs, **kwargs).wait()

File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 390, in init

errread, errwrite)

File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 1024, in _execute_child

raise child_exception

OSError: [Errno 8] Exec format error

I read at here about a similar issue (Setting up your own shiny-server / rstudio-server on a Raspberry Pi 3B+) but found there no answer.

Does somebody had any success with compiling Rstudio on a pinebook pro and/or know what to make of the above error?
