Thanks to all of you and I just gave it a try to check it out. Even it might work with omitted I trust you like to have it working with that as well.

I run into other Fails now :-/

w/r to

update apt lists

I run

apt-get update
apt-get install git

before installing openHABian :wink:

There is another problem with the zulu public key. Maybe bullseye has a different (old…) command:

oot@openhabtest:~# apt update

After that, openhabian-config does work as intended within the LXC Container.

So, obviously, openhab-config uses another method to import the key. What part is missing in bullseye?

I do run into same issue from openHABian hassle-free openHAB Setup - #1501 by INT5749 even with

git clone https://github.com/openhab/openhabian.git /opt/openhabian

As said…

apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 0xB1998361219BD9C9

will import the key needed for successful installation of zulu11.

Haven’t brougth this in relation to missing OH Installation and while there was no error with Installation of Zulu.

Anyway. importing the Zulu Key before Installation of openHABian finally solved this.

MANY thanks to all of you!!

openHABian is not yet supported on bullseye. I am not aware of any issue with buster .

The mosquitto service fails to start when a mirrorSD (obtained with option 52) boots (openhabian 1.6.5 branch main).

I switched to OH3 last month and I set up the auto-backup feature, as it is very handy. When I tried to verify if the mirrorSD worked I found that the mosquitto service was unable to start, and therefore all mqtt items were not updated.

The status of mqtt is

:~ $ sudo systemctl status mosquitto.service

This can be fixed by using “fixing permissions” with option 14 in openhabian-config. then by restarting the service everything runs regularly.

This behavior can be reproduced starting from a fresh install of openhabian 1.6.5 on my raspberry pi v3.
After installation of mosquitto with openhabian-config the service starts correctly.
Mirroring of the SD gives no error (I have set log to maximum). When booting from the mirrored SD everything seems fine but the mosquitto service does not start.

I am a bit surprised that a mirror copy has different permissions: what else can also be different?

Error in Fix Permission (option 14) in openhabian 1.6.6 (branch=main)

In my production system I am still experiencing the problem described in my previous post, i.e. Mosquitto fails to start, moreover, the workaround of fixing permissions does not work anymore with the new version of openhabian. I let openhabian to update itself but after applying option 14 it simply return to the prompt.

In order to reproduce the issue in controlled conditions, I started with a freshly downloaded openhabian image and let it install (I did it twice, with an old and a brand new 16Gb SD card). Applying option 14 fix permission always end up in an error. This happens either if mosquitto is installed or not.

but if I give the same command from the prompt (preceding it with sudo) it does not fail.

Is this a bug?

I investigated a little deeper and found that the problem of mosquitto not starting in the attempt done from fresh install was related to the \var\log\mosquitto directory. For some reason, it was not present in the mirror and that was caausing the problem. Strangely enough, the debug script was not complaining that the directory was not present. Once I created that directory and re-run the fix_permission options, the mosquitto service started. My explanation is that the mirror was taken at install time, when mosquitto was not installed and the option SD Sync does not actually synchronize the /var/log/mosquitto directory.

The missing /var/log/mosquitto problem did not explain what happend to my production system, though, because I verified that such a directory was indeed present in the mirror SD. Before shutting-down my production system, in order to try again to boot with the backup sd, I stopped zram,openhab, habapp and, differently from all the previous attempts, also mosquitto. The backup sd card booted and mosquitto did not fail. Finally the fix permission option 14 always give the error but it does not stop at the prompt anymore as it happened repeatedly this morning.

Next step will be to burn a 16Gb SD card

I’m having quite some trouble to setup openhabian with clonebranch=stable. No successfull installation possible on my rpi4 4GB
See my post here, if interested.

After installing a brand new 1.7.1 using clonebranch=main, i realized i had to change my hostname (oh-test should have been a clonebranch=stable environmet, which is not possible to install atm - and i forgot to change). So i ran openhabian-config and changed the hostname to oh3-test, did a reboot and logged in. This resulted in the following output:

Using username "marino".

I don’t know, where the text generated at login time gets its information from.

same to me… but I don’t care.
The information comes from a tool called firemotd
maybe it pulls out some information from /etc/openhabian.conf

just found out: reason is FireMotD reading from cache. I ran

sudo FireMotD -G Gray

and got the correct hostname. Used theme “Gray” may be found in ~/.bash_profile.

Might be a good idea to integrate this in openhabian-config → 31.

EDIT means: german languguage sentence was a leftover from checking with google translator. ^^
Sorry.

While trying to understand the inconsistency with the hostname on the login screen (see above), I looked at the text a few times of course.

In the end i noticed the following:

                          _   _     _     ____   _
  ___   ___   ___   ___  | | | |   / \   | __ ) (_)  ____   ___

      |_|                          3.1.0 - Release Build

which - for me - seems to be definitely wrong. The maintainer and others try to educate all users to understand that openhain and openhab separate things (not to be confused with an openHAB thing).

Yes boys (there aren’t any girls, no?): i got that. I am running openhabian 1.7.1 which installed an openhab 3.1 as requested.
I believe it is more than a good idea to get that cleaned up before telling more people something like “There is no openHABian 3.1.0. Release Build”.

Have fun!

Yes, that’s total nonsense :rofl:

Thanks for mentioning, indeed, that was wrong.
A fix has already been implemented, so further versions will show it like

Hello openHABIans,

Just want to say thank you!

I reanstalled my complete openHAB installation 3.2 based on openHABian 1.7 bullseye this weekend.
First time that I used the backup and restore functionality. Everything worked really smooth.

Also homegear 0.8 based on nightly builds (with homematicBidCoS) is running stable (installed by hand, because in the release notes is mentioned that it does not work)

Cool, thanks for your work on the project!
