is it possible to run latest version of avs-device-sdk sample app on raspbian jessie?

Hi all

I want to develop a device that integrate "aws iot greengrass" and "alexa voice service".

But according to release notes, greengrass v1.1.0 only run on raspbian jessie and avs device sdk only run on raspbian stretch. I already try to run avs device sdk on raspbian jessie, but looks like there is some error in this case...... (ex. gstreamer-1.0>=1.8;gstreamer-app-1.0>=1.8...etc)

So is there any way to run avs device sdk on raspbian jessie?

Thanks

While we formally support Stretch on Pi at this time, our SDK can run on many platforms, including Jessie. The issues you're seeing are related to our dependencies. Please see here for guidance:

You may have to go build gstreamer from source to meet that particular requirement.
