Trying to attached templates to serial devices with lmce-admin I find under "COM Port on PC"
Code: [Select]
Error: top parent device not found
I did have to install mysql-client. I ran and the ttyUSB0 shows up in mysql under device data 133 with fkdevice being the rpi. Any idea whats causing this?

Also seeing this under "Sound Card" in the rpi device

Thanks again

I followed instructions here

Mostly. The kernel.img goes on the sd card and the modules and firmware go in /usr/pluto/diskless/xx/lib/

You will have to install the gcc cross complier. I followed this

I can put a more user friendly outline together if you want to add it to you wiki. There is a shell script on rpi that should do this but did not work for me. At least not before I updated the modules. I think it may now. It's /usr/bin/rpi-update. You can see more about that at

Hope this helps

I found out that raspbian has problems with serial adaptors and other usb devices. The source we are building from at does not have support for usb to serial adaptors. There are folks working on that  ;D. I have built a new kernel and updated the firmware and modules to include the latest commit. The rpi now attaches my prolific adaptor to ttyUSBx. There have been reports of this crashing after a while. I may not be able to test that just yet. I can outline the steps I took if wanted. Let me know.

Works like a charm. Thanks for all your and all the others efforts here. Now to working on virtual usb com ports.

I did. But in my stupidity I did not notice that it was named "" and have been trying to still run It's running now.

Thanks for the wrap in the head!

I think it may be a dpkg issue. I don't think it can handle the .xz extension. I got this to work in 11.10. I add lucidbleed ppa and upgraded dpkg to 1.16.1 ?? can't remember but I know it was 1.16 something. Still had an issue. It seems that the plymouth amrhf has the .xz extension but not the i386. For whatever reason.

While running I'm getting (from debootstrap.log)

Code: [Select]
dpkg-deb: file `.//var/cache/apt/archives/plymouth_0.8.5.1-5_armhf.deb' contains ununderstood data member data.tar.xz     , giving up
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

I don't know enough about apt to figure out where the error is coming from.

Any ideas?

Users / Greenhouse MD
« on: March 24, 2013, 06:54:32 pm »

I'm looking to put a MD in my greenhouse to work the automation in there. I would be attaching several serial and onewire devices. I'm thinking of a small form factor board with low heat emission, as I would probably be putting it in a NEMA4 enclosure for moisture, usb connection/s to connect peripherals, internet adaptor with wifi (wifi or both could be separate), low power, and it have some kind memory flash or otherwise. I know there was some work on the raspberry PI but I'm not sure where that is or if that could work. Has anybody else done something similar or have any ideas?

Thanks as always

Solved this. It seems my executable had a slightly different name then the device template. Not sure how it happened but that was it. Works perfect now. Thanks for the help!

Alright I'm going to do an install of the latest snap and see if it works there. I have poked around a lot with this one. So maybe...

It still does not start on its own.

Thanks Thom, I had it as controlled via Computers in the template and switched it to Core and still will not start on its own. Device shows controlled by Core.

posde: bash -x works but once I close the terminal it stops then will not start on its own after reload. If I detach using & at the end I can close the terminal but I will not start on its own after reboot.

Thom I did copy it to /usr/pluto/bin. That's where I'm running it from.

I created a device template I wrote in c++. This is my 1st venture with c++ so I'm just starting out there (and I don't think I'll ever get my head fully around pointers). That said the program works fine. I can start the device from a terminal using "" and the device runs as expected. My problem is I cannot get the device to spawn on its own. I even wrote a pnp script to see if that worked (and that was... interesting). The device template loaded correctly but did not start, even after several reloads and reboots. So while I usually enjoy delving deeper into lmce to see why it works and why not, this ones getting me. Any insite as to why this would be?

It recognized mine fine. I went through install and once complete it prompted me to use the devices. Data was fine. I did back it up before just in case. Make sure you chose the correct location for the install. I did not once and broke the raid. I was able to salvage the data but what a pain.
