I've moved to the hard float image of wheezy to install the jdk8.
Following the savage automate tutorial, jdk8 installed fine.
When I hen try to install pi4j, the instructions on the site do not work.
wget ..... .deb - OK downloads package
sudo dpkg -i pi4j....deb - outputs no error, BUT doesn't extract/unpack anything.
Pi4J site says it unpacks to /opt/pi4j/, but there's nothing there, therefor when I compile and run a java app, it fails, and cannot find the pi4j files.
This is a freshly installed version of wheezy and jdk8, no other things have been changed on my pi except apt-get upgrade, which didnt change much
Anyone any ideas?
