    For you guys having issues, I'm a total noob at Linux, docker, and installing Hyperion in general. I struggled a long time with installing Hyperion NG but as mentioned before if you get docker installed and use the GitHub link, it's so simple. Heres links of the exact websites I used to get it done. Hope this helps all that are struggling (I know I did) but there are a few people here that are super knowledgeable. For me, I think it just came down to not enough Linux knowledge to fully understand what these Hyperion gurus are referring to, but I'm slowly learning! I'll try come back here and respond to any questions, and I can (don't expect anything too technical) probably upload my .img file so others can copy directly to sd card and go. I hope this helps some that are struggling.

    This short tutorial assumes you know how to install Raspbian Stretch.

    Step 1- Install Raspbian Stretch. I tried buster, but it didn't work for me.

    Step 2 - Turn on SSH on Raspbian Stretch

    1. Launch Raspberry Pi Configuration from the Preferences menu
    2. Navigate to the Interfaces tab
    3. Select Enabled next to SSH
    4. Click OK
    Step 3- Use putty to SSH to your Raspberry PI https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/remote-access/ssh/windows.md

    Step 4 - Install Docker. I used this website https://www.freecodecamp.org/news/the-easy-way-to-set-up-docker-on-a-raspberry-pi-7d24ced073ef/
    Follow up to the command "docker run hello-world"

    Step 5 - Run This:
    wget -qN https://raw.github.com/hyperion-project/hyperion.ng/master/bin/scripts/docker-compile.sh && chmod +x *.sh && ./docker-compile.sh -t rpi-raspbian-stretch

    Step 6 - Load up your RPI, grab a wireless keyboard and mouse and navigate to the file system. Then navigate to /home/pi/deploy

    In this folder, you should see a file called Hyperion.NG Beta.1.0.0- If you double click it should ask if you want to extract the file. Say yes and it will do so, and Hyperion will be installed. Hyperion should now start automatically when you start up your RPI.

    Step 7 - On your windows pc or probably any other pc you should be able to navigate to your.ip.address.here:8090
    This should load up your settings menu for Hyperion NG. Change your settings as needed and enjoy.

    Greetings

    What does Hyperion.ng bring that's different?

    Can this be done over current Hyperion install or should it be "clean" install?

    I personally would do a clean install. If you currently have a good working Hyperion Id just leave it as is. Personally, I just wanted to try NG. It does have a really nice web-based GUI that is simple to use. Other than that not much as far as I can see. I just wrote this to hopefully help others that were struggling. I myself don't have a lot of Linux experience so I was having issues installing NG originally.

    Thanks for taking your time and writing this tutorial in an attempt to help those who are struggling.
    Since I cant seem to figure out why the original hyperion wont properly install or work on my raspb3 I decided to try your way and the NG. I had some trouble installing Docker but have nevertheless manage to find a way and install it.I did step 5,successfully it seems. But when i go to home/pi/deploy i do not find there the hyperion file that you mentioned. However,there is a folder /home/pi/hyperion.ng with lots of sub-folders. Its size is 29.1 MiB. Could it be it already installed somehow? Does this ring any bells to you?
