I don’t know. if I will use it, bevause I am happy with my installation, but this will make the setup much easier for new users!
One think I would suggest is the integration of an MQTT server.
This is usefull for many IoT devices, but the setup is not that easy and might scare new users.
Of cause it should be optional, because not everybody needs it.
@staehler67 I would be happy to add eibd and owserver as well. I have however no hardware to test them. Are there special steps I need to take care of in order to get them working? (example: 1. install from custom repository, 2. change a configuration file, 3. execute an initialization command) Please answer here and here
@James_Hiscott I’ll be working on this soon as it is of personal interest to me. Do you by any chance already have some filters/rules for openHAB? If so, please contribute.
Further fixes and additions to create a solid base for your Rasbperry Pi openHAB installation. The release can be used in production. Coming changes will concentrate on the optional components installable through a menu. Version 1.0 will be hit when the menu is ready and others can contribute parts to it.
New in this release:
Oracle Java 8 (build 1.8.0_101, needed for my.openhab)
openHAB syntax highlighting in vim and nano
samba userdata share preconfigured
many small improvements
Everything has been thoroughly tested. In my home the first boot took 50 minutes and the openHAB portal was reachable after another 12 minutes. A reboot was not needed. (@Stephen_F, @alekons)
Of course it is allowed (btw. now you can just use the newer apt command - apt update/upgrade/install/...)
The is no special updatescript.
Your problem seems OH2 specific, I don’t think it’s related to your openHABian system. Did you install another persistence service? Did you change the default one? How are you trying to uninstall mysql-persistence (PaperUI vs Karaf console)?
I did not want to miss out answering you on that. When building openHABian, I payed close attention to create an installation and setup routine that - after some testing - can also be independently executed on a normal x86/x64 system (debian/ubuntu). A few steps are still missing to make that a real possibility but it’s on the right track. I will need some more time to refactor a few parts and to build an interactive menu around all of it.
15 minutes, WOW that’s a nice downlink i suspect Local DNS is a pain in the ass to make generalized assertions. From what I know (please correct me if I’m wrong): If there is a dns domain for your subnet, it is provided by your router or interpreted by your operating system. While Windows previously supported the special .local domain, this seems to change. Nowadays usage of .local seems to be the less accepted choice in home subnets. I’ll update the guide to a url without .local. Thanks for pointing that out.
On a side note: I’m a bit old fashioned and always work with IP addresses
