I have been using Openhab2 on a RPi3 for a few years.
Since it started making problems lately, I decided to reinstall it and then load a backup file.
When I try installing, I get the following error:
Failed to start /etc/rc.local Compatibility
After reading this, I tried editing /etc/resolv.conf and change the IP address to 126.96.36.199, but after rebooting, I get the same error (and the content of /etc/resolv.conf is back to the previous IP address 192.168.x.y).
So what? That does not mean it was supported back then. Either way, it isn’t today.
Of course there have been many changes over the years.
It’s rather expectations of yours, you are expecting stuff that today’s openHABian is not built to provide. So if you want to stick with openHABian please move to supported hardware. Or figure things out on your own.
How is the error I receive relate to any HW issue?
And on a side note:
So after moving from Vera hubs several years ago, and using OH since then, because of an issue I had, and in order to continue using OH, following this recommendation, I practically have no way of continue using OH.
That’s a great community and support - thanks!
I wish others would join this discussion, and show me the rest of the community is different.
That error is sign of something to fundamentally go wrong with the install process and is because you flashed to an SSD instead of the standard internal SD card. It does not happen when you stick to the standard.
You can install latest openHABian to SD card. As you apparently want OH2 take care of this then you can import your old config.
There is no such thing. It’s either openHAB 2.5 or openHABian 1.7.2 or if you used some old image that would be an explanation for your problems, too.
We don’t support OH2 any longer in openHABian, sorry.
So if you insist on 2.5, I’m afraid you’ll have to debug that yourself.
Read the debug guide (set debugmode=maximum BEFORE installing by accessing the boot partition from some other computer). Start by looking into /boot/first-boot.log.
You could also go with a standard installation of OH3 and downgrade after, there’s a menu option or you can do it manually by exchanging the Linux packages.
I was using the openHABian installation that Iused to install OH2.5 on my system a few years ago.
This is the filename: openhabian-pi-raspbian-201908050414-gitca0976f-crc6a66b5a1.img.xz
The most important thing for me, is to try and have as less editing / work as possible with my old configuration (ZWave items, add-ons) and rules. They were working perfectly for me, and I just want to keep them.
If I install a clean OH3 installation (openHABian 1.7.2, downloaded from here, filename: openhabian-pi-raspios32-202201271414-git08bc4ff-crcdd86375a.img.xz), will I be able to restore my configuration from OH2.5, or will I have to start setting up from scratch?
