Seems like i didn’t copied everything from the terminal. The correct output for “buid” is
openHAB 2.0.0~20170108164202 (Build #701)
The other question - does openhabian requires some changes in smb.conf file for guest user? I’m not able to save changes in configuration files when i’m mountng smb share for “guest” user (for some reason i can’t mount the share using user “pi”)
Once again @ThomDietrich for your efforts in making the setup such a breeze!
When I reboot my pi I need to enter the username and password in order for OH2 to start. After a power failure it would be useful if OH2 could start without entering these credentials when the Pi itself boots.
So my two questions are:
Where do I set it so that there is no bootup password?
Is this unwise?
Apologies if this was asked elsewhere but I couldn’t find an answer.
This shouldn’t be necessary at all. Of course you have to enter it when you log in via ssh. But with openhabian (using the apt-get method), openHAB is configured as a service, so will be started automatically during boot.
Do you only need to enter the credentials in case of a power failure (therefore a “hard” crash), or also when you do a controlled shutdown and reboot?
i tried to set up openHABian several times today, but it doesn´t work. It looks like there is a problem fetching the snapshot files. There is always a 404 error. When opening the URL in a browser the whole path is missing. Is there again a problem with the build?
openHAB 2 new apt repository and the single distro refactor
Everyone, another important change to openHAB 2 before it’s final release has happened. For one are packages now hosted by a new more powerful repository service provider and secondly are the packages openhab2-online and openhab2-offline now replaced by a base openhab2 package and a openhab2-addons to install on top. Find more details in the corresponding announcement threads:
Implications for openHABian users
I’ve done the needed changes to the openHABian scripts. From this point on forward openHABian will default to openhab2 (the previously known “openhab2-online” package). An option to easily select the addons package will follow.
Fresh installations: The openhab2 package will be installed on fresh systems. Nothing to pay attention to there.
Existing setups: If you are already using openHABian, just execute sudo openhabian-config, then select “Update” followed by “openHAB 2”. This will transition your setup over from the cloudbees repository to bintray and from openhab2-offline to openhab2. You will be prompted about 1-2 changed files in /var/lib/openhab2/etc. Select “Yes” to have them overwritten. Give openHAB a few minutes to restart, you may have to trigger another restart by typing sudo systemctl restart openhab2.service, after that your system as you know it will be back on track. Remember to backup your configuration.
Thank you. Not sure how it would all tie in together philosophy wise, but I believe OpenHabian should be promoted by OpenHab as the main install method. Of course, manual installs would be available for the more “advanced” user.
The work you’ve done has saved hundreds, if not thousands, of man-hours for new users. I can only imagine what the percentage is of people who attempt a manual install and give up, swearing off the platform. I can easily see a 50% or greater increase of users based on this service alone.
Thanks @RHINESEL, always nice to get feedback from you!
I’ve actually already “sneaked” openHABian into that position by mentioning it here a couple of times However, do not forget, that there are many different platforms and operation systems you can run openHAB on. Using openHABian on a Raspberry Pi is only one way and not fitting for everyone. Still feel the same way as you. For newcomers a Raspberry Pi plus openHABian might be the smoothest openHAB experience you can get. Maybe @Kai want’s to suggest that in the big openHAB 2.0 annoucement
i wont be in front of a computer to access to check until later today, but will do it…is there a possibility of adding a backup / restore feature to openhabian-config? would just add to the great work you’ve already done.
Totally. It would do more or less what you can find behind the link, plus some menu logic to present some hints and give the user a selection of which backup to restore. I’ll just have to find the time for that. Please create an issue referencing your message: https://github.com/openhab/openhabian/issues
