Thanks for the info on stopping the media. You are correct I don'the use the orbiter. The GSD device starts up fine. The only issue was I needed to install a new temp child device to get the RPI to download the needed software to run the devices previously created prior to the update. Then I deleted the temp device. Not a big issue.

I have a couple of relay controllers that I made that control irrigation out at the gardens and green house. They are built around MSP430G2553 micro controller. I have built a new version that has inputs that I am using out at the end of my driveway, which is 700' long, to monitor vehicle and pedestrian sensors. I wanted the ability to reset the power to the USB port if the device goes stupid, mostly due to a switch debounce problem. Having the serial port nicely mapped to the usb port is perfect to make a shell script that lmce can call if all else fails. I am now building an audio switcher. This will have 12 outputs that can choose up to 16 inputs. This way I can use any of my inputs to play throughout the whole house. This is almost done. I will need to work on the device template after the build is complete.

All these devices are cheap. If you or anyone is interested I can post the schematics and/or the pc board layouts. I do have some extra boards as well.

Creating the link works perfect! The updated serial works great as well.

The GSD devices I use are small homemade stuff. The RPI is perfect to use in remote locations. So far I use one RPI with one device and they hum along fine.

Thanks again for your efforts!

Hi J

There seems to be a problem. I downloaded the latest SDcard and deb file. Installed the deb and sdcard contents, ran Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh, rebuilt the image for the MD through the web admin, plugged in the RPI and when it gets to "Diskless_InstallKernel.sh" it reboots immediately... then it gets to "Diskless_InstallKernel.sh" and reboots and just repeats this. I tried this with a new RPI and I get the same results. One thing I noticed was the kernel link is bad in the tarball and that Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh has changed. I copied the old Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh over and am now looking to see what happens with that. I am still poking around to see what went wrong but thought I'd let you know and to see if you had any thoughts. Thanks again for all your effort here.

Hi Jason

I just noticed you made that change to LinuxSerialUSB.cpp 3 weeks ago and my installation is older than that. I will upgrade and I'm sure that it will work. Thanks for your time and effort!

Hi Jason

Thanks for getting back to me!

It is built. The problem I'm having is with PlutoUtils/LinuxSerialUSB. I keep coming up with
Code: [Select]
TranslateSerialUSB platform/bcm2708_usb+1.2 isn't serial usb <0xb44ff460>
That would mean that
Code: [Select]
if( sInput.size()<6 || ( sInput.substr(0,3)!="pci" && sInput.substr(0,8) != "platform" ) )
{
LoggerWrapper::GetInstance()->Write(LV_STATUS,"TranslateSerialUSB %s isn't serial usb",sInput.c_str());
return sInput;
}

Is not working as it should and it looks like it should so maybe it is old? I tried to setup a build environment again but lost your instructions and forgot how. I think I might be able to build it on the Pi but that could be slow. Do you have those instructions?

Thanks

Jim

Sorry I acted to soon. It loaded and works fine. Serial ports aren't being listed correctly. Shows as platform/bcm2708_usb+1.3 but that gives me;
Code: [Select]
Failed Opening serial port: platform/bcm2708_usb+1.3.If I change it in the database to /dev/ttyUSB0 works fine. I know I looked at this a while back and I believe Radu fixed it. I may dig into it more.

Thanks again!

Hi Carlos

I ran video for a short while and it worked ok. I can check again when I have a chance.

Take care

Hello, has Generic Serial Device been built for the Raspberry MD? Doesn't seem to be loading it when I add a device. By the way great job on this!!! Starts up and runs fine. Video and sound. Thanks to everyone with that effort!

Not sure if this is the best place for this.

I had to make some changes so TranslateUSB works. I show it on ticket #1738.
With those changes OneWire runs on the rpi. It just will not start on it's own. I have not installed any sensors yet but I will soon.


Edit:
Sensors work fine. I had to reload router to see them in lmce-admin.

Thanks for all your work. I can put that together that ticket. If I have any questions I'll let you know. I am building some things now, OneWire being one of them. I'm building dependencies as I go as needed. I am building what I need to use the rpi for headless automation. If you like I can dropbox them for you.

I thought that might be the case. I also forgot different OS. I am building what I need. Anything I can do?

now I'm finding it will not down load software for new devices. Well at least for oneWire.

Any incites there?

Thanks

Ok figured out the problem.

Because the rpi is a new style MD I needed to let lmce-admin know that. Added
Code: [Select]
$GLOBALS['rootRPIMediaDirectorsID'] = 2216; // Raspberry PI Media Directors
in hardCoded.php

and then had to make that a choice option when checking for MDs. Changed in utils.inc.php
Code: [Select]
if($row['FK_DeviceCategory']==$GLOBALS['CategoryCore'] || $row['FK_DeviceTemplate']==$GLOBALS['rootMediaDirectorsID']){
to
Code: [Select]
if($row['FK_DeviceCategory']==$GLOBALS['CategoryCore'] || $row['FK_DeviceTemplate']==$GLOBALS['rootMediaDirectorsID'] || $row['FK_DeviceTemplate']==$GLOBALS['rootRPIMediaDirectorsID']){under
Code: [Select]
function getTopLevelParent($deviceID,$dbADO)
That was causing my problem. Also changed same line under
Code: [Select]
function getTopLevelParentIP($deviceID,$dbADO)And changed under
Code: [Select]
function isMediaDirector($deviceID,$dbADO,$mdOnly=0)this line
Code: [Select]
if($DeviceTemplate==$GLOBALS['rootMediaDirectorsID']){
To this
Code: [Select]
if($DeviceTemplate==$GLOBALS['rootMediaDirectorsID'] || $DeviceTemplate==$GLOBALS['rootRPIMediaDirectorsID']){

I haven't tested it too much yet but appears to work.
Let me knwo if you need anything more.
