Mihini/Install Mihini

The fast option to get ready with Mihini is to get it from the .deb, the .rpm or the AUR:

ArchLinux / ArchLinuxARM

The AUR package is available for any arch, so if you have yaourt (which is available on ArchLinuxARM with pacman -Syu yaourt), you just need to: yaourt -Syu mihini-git



Choose your architecture

  • i386 (desktop, 32bits)
  • amd64 (desktop, 64bits)
  • armhf (ARM with hard float, like Raspberry Pi)
  • beaglebone (with Ångström)

Choose your package type

  • deb (Debian, Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Ångström, OpenEmbedded, OpenWRT…)
  • rpm (Fedora, RHEL)

Dowload it on your computer/device

$ wget<Your architecture>.<your pakage type>


The following commands needs to be executed either with the "root" user or with sudo <command>

Debian / Ubuntu / Linux Mint

$ dpkg -i mihini-*.deb

Fedora / RHEL

$ rpm -U mihini-*.rpm

Ångström / OpenEmbedded / OpenWRT

$ opkg install mihini-*.deb

Managing the daemon

With the .deb, a sysV init script is provided, and with the .rpm and the the AUR and BeagleBone packages, there is a systemd service file.

Theses daemons are automatically launched in the end of the installation process (and stopped when you uninstall the packages), except for BeagleBone, for which you have to systemctl start mihini.service. This means that you don't have to manage appmon_daemon & the Mihini Agent by yourself.

To manage the sysV init daemon, you can use sudo /etc/init.d/mihini {start|stop|restart|purge} (purge will clean /var/opt/mihini/persist/*), and with systemd, there is also sudo systemctl {start|stop|restart|enable|disable} mihini
