FHT Binding in 1.8.0 does not start anymore

Since I updated to 1.8.0, at least FHT Binding will not be loaded at startup.
I did not change the config, all jars are in the /addons folder:


Any idea? Thanks in advance

Anything interesting in openhab.log?

unfortunately nothing.
I got this below, but nothing with CUL, FHT oder S300TH, as I got before upgrading

[INFO ] [.service.AbstractActiveService] - FS20 Refresh Service has been started
[INFO ] [.service.AbstractActiveService] - HTTP Refresh Service has been started

Can you start openHAB in debug mode, in case there is more info in the log at DEBUG level?

I am wondering, that obviously openhab is receiving data from CUL, and then the FHTBinding reports “CUL device is not accessible” ??? I already checked permissions for /dev/ttyACM0

I saw that the openhab init script from the “apt” package is different to the one I used in 1.7.1. Any necessary changes that I have to integrate in my version of the init script (/etc/init.d/openhab)?

The debug output:

See if the hints in this thread help.

Thanks for this hint, but unfortunately, nothing new in here.
I didn’t change anything besides just replacing a fully functional 1.7.1 with 1.8.1.
I am thinking of going back to 1.7.1 :cry:

edit: I finally downgraded back to 1.7.1 and everything works fine.
maybe my upgrade approach was too simple: I just renamed the /addons and /server folders and replaced them with those from 1.8.0.
Whats the correct way to upgrade a running system?

I have had the same thing. I think it’s been identified as a bug and a patch produced (I found some discussion and a patch on github that looked like this problem) - I guess it will make it into 1.8.1. I’m also on 1.7.1 (I was installing from scratch - never used openhab before, so this really threw me for a while!)

github link

I don’t see an issue or pull request on github marked for the 1.8.1 milestone. Did I miss it?

I haven’t looked, I may be making a bad assumption there - I’m not a developer, and am not sure how the branches, and patches are managed. But it does seem to relate to the problem a couple of us are having I think?

Matthew, if you can contact the developer, please ask if his changes are intended to fix problems you and others are experiencing with the 1.8.0 binding, and if he can open either an issue or pull request (or both) in github that explains the problem(s) and his fixes, and to get his changes scheduled for review and merge into 1.8.1. Otherwise, it may not happen! Thanks!
