I know that a lot of people have been working relentlessly hard for the 2.5 version, however I feels like this new upgrade has many issues and kept giving me different problem with many of my sensors I have used for years.
is the 2.5.5 really the stable build? am I the only one having issues with it?
I tried to downgrade to the stable version 2.4 However nothing seem to be working. here the commands I tried sudo apt-get -y --allow-downgrades -y install openhab2=2.4 sudo apt-get -y openhab2=2.4 sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install openhab2=2.4
There were a lot of structural changes between 2.4 & 2.5.x. It is stable. Only bindings have changed from 2.5.0 to 2.5.5. The main development is on OH3 which will have very major changes.
Did you read the 2.5 release notes and the warnings displayed when upgrading? Restdocs, for instance was moved ans some v1 addons now require legacy binding be enabled since there are v2 versions. Any invalid addon causes ALL addons to reload every minute, trying to load the invalid one. That was a change in Karaf, I believe.
Wasn’t the version 2.4.0 or 2.4.1 in the repo? Downgrading will just delay the inevitable move and increase the pain then.
Could you clarify that e.g. with providing logs? Are those binding related events? I’m running oh 2.5 since it came out and if you take care of the stuff what bruce and the release notes mentioned it works without issues.
Clearly it is not. You’re the the first I heard of to report that.
EDIT: even the linked thread is nowhere about missing events. It is about rules not executing as you expect them to, but that does not mean the event is missing. You have to be precise in analysing and wording.
Which cannot be caused by openHAB (read: downgrading would not change anything about that)
I’d guess you rather have some sort of fundamental problem with your HW and/or OS setup, a dying SD card maybe.
Reinstall onto a new SD card using openHABian, ex- + import your OH config (openhab-cli …) and proceed from there.
@ Bruce_Osborne Thanks, that actually helps a lot. is there anywhere a place where I can find the list of V1 addons? and what is considered as legacy binding?
I also read somewhere that I we need to copy our old addon.cnf and copy it over to 2.5? can you confirm?
