Installation issues / Re: KNX IP ROUTER 750
« on: July 23, 2011, 01:55:24 pm »
When i check the log-files, i see:

Code: (tail -f 37_EIB.log) [Select]

01 07/23/11 13:48:29.388 Failed Opening EIB serial port: ttyS0 <0xb6197b90>

01 07/23/11 13:48:39.389 Failed Opening EIB serial port: ttyS0 <0xb6197b90>

Code: (tail -f 43_EIB.log) [Select]

01 07/23/11 13:49:48.427 Failed Opening EIB serial port: ttyS0 <0xb60b4b90>

01 07/23/11 13:50:03.427 Failed Opening EIB serial port: ttyS0 <0xb60b4b90>

Since it's EIB over ethernet, there's something wrong?
Must i match somewhere the EIB drver to the eibd that runs in the background?
Or is this done automaticlly?

It should be. :$

  • ETS: To be sure, I've created new groups. Exactly the same as the example, and put the light (output) in there.
    But i'm a bit lost here. The wiki says "on/off" and "read status". In ETS, i can only drag/drop the output of the light in that group. So i'm not sure what must be done in here.
    I've changed the flags for this output to Communication/Read/Write/Transmit. Don't know if this has anything to do with it?
    So for 0/0/1 i've added OutputD of 1.1.31
    And for 0/0/2, I've added OutputD of 1.1.31

  • LinuxMCE: In the PORT/CHANNEL number, i add 0/0/1|0/0/2

But nothing happens when i push the Test command ON/OFF.  ???
Shouldn't i see more details in the debug of the eibd when i push the but On/off in the webmin? Or is there another log that i can check if the communication is going correctly?

Version is 8.10

Yes, indeed, that helped me started. I had contact with the maker of the eibd stuff since somewhere there was a mistake to start it (apperantly a file /tmp/eib wasn't created, but this has yet to be confirmed).

I was able to install the eibd with following:

Code: [Select]
/usr/bin/eibd -D -T -R -S -i -u --eibaddr=1.1.11 --daemon=/var/log/eibd.log ipt:

In here, the eib addres for the IP gateway is the 1.1.11, and his IP is the
I'm not sure if the eib address must be in there, but better safe then sorry?

All my lights are already working through the ETS software. So i'm focussing for the moment on 1 light, with the address 1/1/211.

I added this as a normal light (template 37).
Port/Channel Number is set to 1/1/211
But with the test command ON / OFF, nothing happens.

The thing that i'm not sure about, is the 'Controlled By: EIB' option. That EIB has been added by me (template 49), but i'm not sure if this is correct. I don't understand the wiki part about 'Use EIBd'.  :(
Because when i check my device tree, this has some COM setting. Is this correct?

In my eibd log, i just see some 'heartbeats?

I would suspect that once i click 'test ON', something extra should happen here?

This did the trick...


Installation issues / mysql rights
« on: July 21, 2011, 05:12:26 pm »
You won't believe it, but i messed up my database right completely...
I was trying to install extra things on the server (like cacti, phpmyadmin...).

And somewhere, i messed up. I can't access the webmin anymore. It just returns a blank page.
When i stop the mysqld, and restart it with " sudo mysqld --skip-grant-tables", i can access it again.
So somewhere i messed up the rights.

Any idea how i can repair this? :$

That's the reason for dhcp-extra.conf :)

Always nice to have confirmation. ;)

Installation issues / Fixed IP
« on: July 21, 2011, 10:51:18 am »

All my network devices use dhcp.

Nice because this way i can change whatever i want (reason of dhcp).
Not nice because i don't find the option in linuxmce to assign fix ip's.

Several things in my network must be know by their ip to interconnect internally (fe printers, workstations with shares, IP-router of KNX...)
I found out that i can add fixed ip's in /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd-extra.conf, and it works (yeahhh).

more dhcpd-extra.conf
Code: [Select]
host {
  hardware ethernet 00:11:22:33:44:55;

And then a restart of the dhcp server
Code: [Select]
/etc/init.d/dhcp3-server restart

Works great, but now my question, is this the way to do it? Or will some things not work as supposed?

Installation issues / [Solved] KNX IP ROUTER 750
« on: July 18, 2011, 07:05:23 pm »

To control my home automation, i've got a KNX IP ROUTER 750.
Basically, this convert my ethernet network with the EIB.

Can you give me a hint how i can insert this into linuxmce in order to work?

Installation issues / Re: Installation drops direct to initramfs
« on: July 14, 2011, 05:40:51 pm »
Couldn't find the 24164-2nd.
So i tried it with the 24161-2nd. But this fails as well.

Now downloading the 24164 (the normal / first one?). And will try it with that one.
Hope this one will go, almost through my empty dvd's...  :-X

ps the USB-keyboard isn't working on all the latest versions for me. But a PS works..

Installation issues / Installation drops direct to initramfs
« on: July 13, 2011, 07:38:26 pm »

When i'm trying one of the latest versions (24147 & 24164), the installation stops almost directly into a prompt 'initramfs'. The only thing i can choose is the language and the next question (linuxmce, kubuntu...). I tried linuxmce or kubuntu, but both give the same result.
When i take an old version (fe 24012), the installation starts without any problem.

Any idea what goes wrong?

Installation issues / Re: {extif} for second interface

Okay, you're absolete right.

...If you don't have the time to do it good, when will you have the time to do it over...

This weekend a fresh installation, but it fails, again...
Damend, why is it so hard to install this linuxmce stuff... A simple apt-get install would be fantastic...  :(

Installation issues / Re: {extif} for second interface
« on: July 01, 2011, 05:48:16 pm »
hmmm, strange...

I did this, and then 'sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart'.
And everything seems in order. I nicely get an IP from my provider, the LAN is working...

Before i do anything else, i want to be sure that all settings are known everywhere.
So i rebooted the server.
But when i look nows, the /etc/network/interfaces is overwritten with the old stuff? The {extif} is back in place?

any idea how this come?

Installation issues / Re: {extif} for second interface
« on: June 26, 2011, 05:30:45 pm »
Not working like it should be.
I don't get any dhcp offers on the LAN with this configuration.

When i swap them back again, the LAN is working 100% correctly, but the WAN isn't recieving an IP from the provider.
So i think that this {extif} must be resolved before i can continue...

ps the installation was done as
This went great. With the ISO the system stops constantly with rendering and so... :$

Installation issues / {extif} for second interface
« on: June 26, 2011, 04:43:19 pm »

I'm having troubles with my 2 network cards. These are 2 build in ones on a Dell poweredge server.

  • In the config, the first one (WAN) is tagged as {extif}, and doesn't get a IP from my provider. The second one (LAN) is seen correctly (fixed ip on eth0).
    So this isn't working.
  • When i now swap the cables and chooes 'swap interfaces', my new WAN-port is tagged as eth0 and gets a proper IP from the provider.
    The second one is now tagged as {extif} with a fix ip.

So it's working in situation 2, but i suppose that something isn't 100% correct here.
Any thoughts on it?

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Velbus: CAN bus
« on: January 27, 2011, 08:58:42 pm »

I started already 4 times a reply on this. And each time, i find myself to 'rough' in my replies. So this is my last attempt.
A moderator can close/remove this topic if he wants... Didn't have any good results, positive answers...

I really want to use a good product that combines IT with domotica.
And i really don't want to learn a program language to get it working.
So i'll put linuxmce beside, and velbus next to it.
And restart the search for other products, with a more userfriendly system and support...

Thanks for your great positive support and feedback...
Gives a good idea what you can expect from the global system...
