Hi All, I have a BeagleBone Green Wireless I plan to use to prototype an embedded app on. I plan to use Nerves eventually but for now I just want to try to get a minimal Elixir app running on it.
It came with Debian Jessie installed on it and I tried to follow some instructions to install the Erlang esl-erlang package with no luck. I was able to install the erlang package only to discover that it was version 17 (which I understand is too old for Elixir). I’m experienced with Debian so I used the standard method to upgrade the distribution to Stretch and now I have Erlang v 19 (yippie)! Thi was easier said than done and this board is slow, although I assume the slowness was IO bound.
Anyhow, I can’t seem to find the Elixir package. Can someone give me some pointers on how to install Elixir on Debian Stretch running on a BeagleBone Green wireless?
