iridiumserver_1.1.6 won't install/run on Ubuntu

I try with both UMC and RPI package

Here is my output

Extract it to /iridiumserver
ar -xv iridiumserver_1.1.6-12402_UMC.ipk 
tar –zxvf data.tar.gz

copy S92iridium to /etc/init.d/


Architecture: arm
/iridiumserver/iridium --force --hidden --watchdog=60

also works on i686 (without a VirtualMachine)


sudo apt-get install gcc-arm-linux-gnueabihf libc6-dev-armhf-cross
sudo apt-get install qemu-user-static

and many symbol links of libraries

sudo ln -s /usr/arm-linux-gnueabihf/lib/....so /lib/....so

I think I found a problem

it look like IRserver just wont work on ARM64 / 64-bit os?


I try both but when I run it give 

Segmentation Fault error


Try to use

sudo dpkg --add-architecture armhf
sudo apt-get update

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/xenial/arm64/multiarch-support


or recompile kernel to add support of ARM32

run make menuconfig ARCH=arm64

I already try x86, but it wont work on ARM

I will try Andrey S solution

Waiting for user's reply

First of all - which hardware platform do you use? It is not good solution - transfering code to unsupported platform

Looks fully compatible with RPi. Can you try it (RPi version) on Debian system?

It just won't run

evenif "/iridiumserver/iridium" was there


now i just switch to other arm hardware it just work fine with RPi version
