Status eibd and new EIB Implementation
« on: October 20, 2009, 01:09:33 pm »
Hi,

i've read a lot about the new EIB Implementation with eibd. But i have some questions:

1.) (Newbie Question): How can i start eibd on startup?
2.) I only have to replace the old EIB (usr/pluto/bin/EIB) with the new one from hari?
3.) I have all my Lights, Thermostats and so on in the Device Tree and they are working very well. Do i have to change there anything?
4.) Is there now the possibility to read the values from the Devices? This is the most important thing, because i want to read and save the values in a database.

thanks in advance

put it into rc.local or create an init script. This will be automatically done in the future, but for now you need to do it manually

you need add further GAs to the port/channel field, see the documentation that comes with the new driver

see above

It will listen to the additional GAs, so no direct read, but it will state the change of the devices from those telegrams

best regards,

btw, the code was done by guigolium (with a few hints from my side). I just added some tweaks/bugfixes.

thank you. I found this docs: http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/browser/branches/LinuxMCE-0810/src/EIB-eibd/doc These are the documentations you have spoken?

I have another question, i used the new Implementation from your server (http://vt100.at/files/EIB-32bit-0810-binary) Is this the correct file or do i have to check out from svn and compile it?

thanks.

yes, it would be nice if somebody did a wiki page from these files..

i can make a wiki page, after i checked everything... but i think i have to look at first to compile it, because i think there might be a "bug" in there. When i start the new Driver it uses 98% of the CPU...  :(

I did fix this issue in a later version.
