openHABian testing

Which Debian version do you use?

1 Like

The Internet tells me I find my Debian version with cat /etc/debian_version, which yields 11.9

That’s bullseye. openHABian 1.9 is now based on bookworm. So as said your issue is not related and, well, sorry, off-topic for the most part.

Three options to get the installed OS:

cat /etc/debian_version # only on debian-like systems....
cat /etc/issue
cat /etc/os-release

and the fourth :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

lsb_release -a

Ah, didn’t know about that one :slight_smile:

tried like the logs:

  1. downloaded Raspberry Pi Imager (imager_1.8.5.exe)
  2. selected Pi 4
  3. selected “openHABian” under “Home assistants and home automation” with date “2024-03-15”
  4. put the SD-Card in a RasperryPi 4
  5. after boot up, I still got “bullseye”

Shouldn’t it already get deliverd with bookworm? openHABian is version 1.9

which one, there’s two images

the Pi3 labelled one will not get you bookworm.

There’s only 32.bit and 64.bit? (I chose 32.bit)

I already chose the model in the first step in the imager:

edit: Ah! you mean the 32.bit which is described “like a Pi3”?
I was still under the impression, the 32.bit-version is recommended?

No, read the docs before installing.

I’ll release v1.9b with the 32 bit image in Raspi imager to be the bookworm variant, too.

I did? Does not sound like a unconditonal recommendation to me?

Use the 64 bit image versions but please be aware that 64 bit always has one major drawback: increased memory usage. If you want to go with 64 bit, ensure your RPi has a mimimum of 2 GB, 4 will put you on the safe side. You can use the 32 bit version for older or non official addons that will not work on 64 bit yet.

So, having an Pi 4, 4GB it’s now recommended to use 64-bit? and it solves that annoying 20sec delay after saving a rule…
to be fair it sounds a bit more “soft” than last time I checked for 32 vs 64 bit… :wink:
additional question: how can bindings be checked for 64.bit?

I have just released openHABian v1.9c to contain a refactored hotspot setup. Please test.
