  1. You don’t need to reinstall Raspbian OS. Just force the package to install with: $ dpkg -i –force-depends –force-architecture logmein-hamachi_2.1.0.101-1_armel.deb

  2. i tried to install lsb-core to latest version or aramhf, but while forcing to install i get error . it says lsb-core missing

    sudo dpkg -i –force-architecture log*
    dpkg: warning: overriding problem because –force enabled:
    package architecture (armel) does not match system (armhf)
    (Reading database … 64155 files and directories currently installed.)
    Preparing to replace logmein-hamachi (using logmein-hamachi_2.1.0.101-1_armel.deb) …
    Unpacking replacement logmein-hamachi …
    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of logmein-hamachi:
    logmein-hamachi depends on lsb-core (>= 3.0).

    dpkg: error processing logmein-hamachi (–install):
    dependency problems – leaving unconfigured
    Errors were encountered while processing:

  3. The install went fine, lsb and hamachi are on the pi.
    When I do (root user):
    /etc/init.d/logmein-hamachi start

    The start up works and hamachi starts up though the network connection is lost, ping and ifconfig show that the Pi lost its connection.
    Because of the lost connection I can’t log in at all, I have to reboot to restore the network connection.
    Any idea why this happens, and how it can be fixed?
