Lighthouse and ORx development snapshot 2.0.002

I replaced those with new versions.

Actually I purchased this card today. It comes with a SD adapter. This is the real photo :smile:

branko,
is it this with the same name/version as the previous?: ORxPi-update-2.0.002.zip 50.64 MB 2 hrs ago in the dropbox?
Or can I use the update image? If I use this second version, will reformat the sd card automatically, and start the process from beginning?
(I commented out the line in the lighttpd.conf file, start manually the lighttpd, and now started the web server, appeared the setuo web page)

The files are named the same, 2.0.002. Update doesn’t reformat the card. It just replaces the kernel and userspace software.

OK, it seems it is working.
I use RPi B version, and PCTV 406e DVB-S2 receiver, and USB hub, with 2A power unit.
Only some notes:

First, when I started to boot from the fresh SD with the v2.0.002 system, I didnt see any console mesages on the HDMI display, only the rainbow graphic.
It would be usefuul, at least in this test period, to enable the console on the graphic display. I dont know, how can make this, maybe in the boot partion in some of the config files.
I didnot see any signes of the ethernet activity. When I disconnected the SD card, I made in the …/network/interfaces file manualy a fix, static ip address config for the RPi on ethrenet. In next boot I can access on it the system.
I dont know what its behavioure at first boot with the dvb receiver, I dont use it in first time.
Finally I downloaded the improoved version of the update file, and chaneged the zImage on the SD card. After boot it start the setup web page on the assigned ip address.

Test result for snapshot 2.0.002 fix

With snapshot 2.0.002fix, I just started the RPi2 with HDStar tuner and TP-LINK TL-WN722N attached. Everything is working fine but unable to get the signal LOCK.

The updated image contains config.txt that has these two lines:

hdmi_drive=1
hdmi_force_hotplug=1

If you only updated zImage, it’s possible that these two lines are not present in your config.txt. Try adding them and see if that works.

Has anyone else had a similar issue with Pi connected to LAN?

Can you download the system log from settings page and post it online somewhere?

NOTE: I did few restarts.

Yes. Ethernet never starts.

So expected behavior (and what I’m seeing here) is that booting with LAN cable plugged in causes the ethernet LEDs to start blinking after 12 seconds or so. Shortly after that, I am able to log into the device. Web server also becomes available shortly after that. I am also able to connect and disconnect the LAN cable during operation without issues. That’s on Pi2 at least. Exact time interfaces would become available may vary depending on whether it’s a first boot and whether it’s Pi1 or Pi2. The condition for this to work is that the router has operational DHCP which is the default on most routers.

Yes. Ethernet works only without the WiFi adapter connected.

After some reboot I left my receiver switched on/online for approx. 3.5 hours, beetween Dec 10 19:28 and Dec 10 22:50.
In this time it received approx 151 M data in /mnt/data dir.
I downloaded the system log file, diags_ORxPi_2015-12-11_07-14-34.log.txt, it is near 1.2 M size, and it has big amount of informtions.
It is a very good structured, easy readable and has all the important informations, need to diagnoze and follow the working state of the system. I would like to express my congrats to design and make this, It will be a good tool in the next test periods and maybe in the real working conditions.
Only one additonal notes on this: on the log partion the reserved space for logs is 33.7 M and the log, collected during this 3.5 hours period it reserved 2.5 M, 8 percentes. It seems, it will need some post-processing, compressing.
I use a 8G sized SD card, here is the space statistics after the setup and this short running period:

Disk space:

Yeah, logs can get large. We’ll try to figure out a way to make that work and reduce the amount of logging in general.

What wifi adapter are you using? Also, can you check if ethernet stops working when you hotplug the WiFI adapter after LAN connection is established?

After approx 1 day running, here are some notes about the ORxPi 2 system status based on the diags log:

Thanks for checking those out. Can you aslo post the memory usage numbers?

Also, there’s a new image for ORx (2.0.003). Some details provided here.

Branko, I am having the same problem with FSAL again in my Lighthouse which I reported yesterday. After you said the Lighhouse didn’t seem to like my hard drive, I removed it and rebooted/reloaded 2.0.002 to start from scratch.

This morning only after seeing about 10 pages, I did a FSAL restart and about 50 new pages popped up into the Library. I’ll send you my system log. Ken

As mentioned in the email, please update to 2.0.003 as the previous version does not include FSAL logs.

Hi Branko, I’m in the Lighthouse configuration. Dropbox only has the ORxPi 2.0.003. Ken

Here is the memory usage stats:

Need to note, here is a very cloudly weather now. And it seems, my dish pointing changed in the last days. The signal strengh tend to go to 6-9 %, and often lost the lock status. But its working, receive the files regularly.
