Failed installing 'openhab-binding-fritzboxtr064'

Version: 2.5.9 (Build)
System: Host: rpi3ohv2 Kernel: 5.4.51-v7+ armv7l bits: 32 Console: tty 2
Distro: Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)

I am in the process of migrating v1 bindings to v2.

I tried to use the Fritzbox v2 binding by changing this line in the addon.cfg from

binding = astro,exec,logreader,network,ntp,systeminfo,fritzboxtr0641,expire1,mqtt1,weather1


binding = astro,exec,logreader,network,ntp,systeminfo,fritzboxtr064,expire1,mqtt1,weather1

Note the removal of 1 from fritzboxtr0641

The change is reflected in /var/lib/openhab2/config/org/openhab/addons.config


However, it resulted in this error:

2020-10-24 09:58:24.046 [ERROR] [core.karaf.internal.FeatureInstaller] - Failed installing 'openhab-binding-fritzboxtr064'

I also stopped OH, deleted /var/lib/openhab2/config/org/openhab/addons.config, started OH, resulting in the same error msg. OH recreated the addons.config file correctly and as expected.

When I change back to v1 by adding the ‘1’ all is sweet.

2020-10-24 10:02:54.671 [INFO ] [b.core.service.AbstractActiveService] - FritzboxTr064 Refresh Service has been started

I was looking for the addons directory to check, whether the .jar is present, but I could neither locate it in /usr/share/openhab2/addons nor /opt/openhab2/addons.

Any hints appreciated.

I cant see it in the list?

Hmm, always something new to learn…
Didn’t know about htis site…

Do I read this correctly that there is no v2, hence, no support for the Fritzbox in OHv3?

Checked in PaperUI, only lists a v1 binding.
Is there a place to look for the development status?

Found this:

You read correctly

Maybe contact the author as he may not even have a fritzbox anymore.

The above link expands to:

Yep looks like a dead end
Some people have forked it so maybe someone will take it on.

Offering a new German Fritzbox 7490 as bounty to move/migrate/program binding to v2.

Looks like @J-N-K is already working on it.

In general, check this page for status of OH1/2/3 bindings:

Ouch… to many places to look for information or keep track of…
Thank you for letting me know.
