I dont remember, it was a long time ago when i posted, and since then i managed to install hyperion on libre on raspberry with your other command:

wget -qO- https://git.io/JUvg7 | bash -s 2.0.0-alpha.6

I have used this script successfully before (currently on alpha 3), but it does not seem to be working anymore. I'm getting the following error:
