I am noticing the ZWave ThingTypeXmlProvider binding issue that has been discussed elsewhere on this forum, and I was told that that issue has been fixed in the latest v2.5.5 SNAPHOT build.
So I tried using the openhabian-config console tool menu command “update to latest snapshot”, but this command is NOT actually pulling the latest snapshot. I am expecting it to download a version called something like v2.5.5-xxx, but in fact it is pulling v2.5.4-1 which is NOT the latest snapshot. And if I try to repeat the update command again, the installer says “you are already on the latest snapshot (v2.5.4-1)”.
So I think there is an issue with this openhabian configuration console! Any ideas for a fix?
Not sure about an issue with openhabian tool but you can upgrade/downgrade with five easy commands.
From the doc’s:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
You may want to switch to a different repo, or an older (but more stable) version of openHAB. To do this, simply select the repo as in the installation instructions above, then find the version by bringing a list of all versions available to install:
sudo apt-get update
apt-cache showpkg openhab2
Once you know which version you want, you can upgrade/downgrade to it by using the apt-get install openhab2=[version] command, for example:
If you do the first 4 steps above and do not see the 2.5.5-snapshot as an option to select then maybe it’s the download link. If you do see the option then it’s something related to the openhabian tool.
There seem to be mixed messages, so I am confused: on one hand, they are advertising a v2.5.5-SNAPSHOT here https://www.openhab.org/download/ and I have been told to upgrade to that version, but on the other hand you guys are saying that no such snapshots exist. Which is correct?
That’s a permanent advertisement. And very strictly speaking 2.5.4-1 is the latest 2.X snapshot.
Or to be precise, the latest that has been uploaded to the repo.
If there really was a 2.5.5-somedate as Bruce points out it’s probably just not in the repo (yet).
