OK, I only need this for a static bridge with ambe hardware anyway, so the dashboard isn't required. It is not installed now anyway, re: previous errors.

How can I then install dvswitch-server without the dashboard?

You have a coupe of choices, and I think I know what you will choose:

1: You will need to install nodejs from an outside repository to get the dashboard to work, the you can install dvswitch server.
2: Install everything but the dashboard. Not really a big problem to do.

I would uninstall dvswitch-dashboard while you decide.

I'm attempting to install DVSwitch-server on a Mac Mini converted to Debian 9, which is also running ASL with radio hardware connected, thus, why it's not running Buster.

Linux square 4.9.0-14-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.246-2 (2020-12-17) x86_64 GNU/Linux

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 dvswitch-server : Depends: dvswitch-dashboard but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

This looks to have something to do with:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 node-ws : Depends: nodejs-dev (>= 4.8.2~dfsg-1~)
           Depends: nodejs-abi-46
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

How can I get around this?

Thanks and 73
