I would like to install opnehabian 2 (not 3) on a Raspberry Pi. So I download the image from here
burn it on the SD (before, I change the config file so that WIFI works), put in the Pi and start it up. The problem now is, that without any action it automatically updates to OH3, but I would like to stay on v2 so that I can use my old backups…
Can you tell me how to achieve this? Is there something in the config file on the boot partition that can avoid this OH3-update?
Thanks a lot!
thank you for all your responses.
Sorry for the openhabian2, that was in the mood of login in 1000 times with openhabian… I think I got the fundamentals roughly, I hope…
Anyway. I also tried the clonebranch=stable and it seems to install openhab2, but it does not start up and tells me that there is no such file when I want to start manually with
sudo systemctl start openhab2
So this way (as descibed in the docs you linked) does not work.
Next I will try the downgrading, but I did already this morning and it also did not work, so I am basically stuck.
Is there no simpler way of getting back 2.5.x …? That would be great…
I installed v1.6.6 with clonebrach=stable and during that it prompted (when reading the config file) that it will install openhab2, yes. So I think it should have been installed, but it seems it did not… Is there a way to find that out easily?
In the meantime I left it at OH3, copied over my things, items, rules-scripts and got it running more or less, with some changes that were required in the rules (receivedEvent.getEvent and such…).
Still it would be helpful to figure out a way to get OH2 running again. Will try some more…
Thanks a lot Markus for the quick action!!
In the meantime my Pi400 arrived and I just downloaded the new 1.6.6, change clonebranch=stable and after running it on the pi, the openhab packages still dont seem to exist.
Searching for them with
I fully understand your point. I did read the guide and the setting for debugging, but in order to provide something quick, I skipped the new initial boot part, hoping that the standard log would be sufficient.
Now downloaded again, now it works, thanks a lot!!! Really awesome work.
