In what forum category can I ask about Openhabian related issues? Or is there specific Openhabian forum website?
One of my question is:
What command will trigger Openhabian welcome screen and where Openhabian gets that IP address on welcome screen from?
Afaik, the welcome screen is generated using FireMotD, so anything related to in here is provided by FireMotD.
FireMotD is running as a service in the background. The service is running randomly between 0:00:00 and 5:59:59. During that time subset of parameters are collected. The IP address is part of that collection.
The collected data is stored in
/usr/share/firemotd/data/FireMotD.json and displayed together with updated information that is collected during execution time ( login time ) of a user.
You may check the content of
/usr/share/firemotd/data/FireMotD.json it shows when the IP address was collected.
Oh wait! That time window 0:00:00 - 5:59:59 caught my eye. The other problem I am trying to solve is my R-Pi 4 with Openhabian is getting disconnected from internet from around midnight until 6 morning. The connection is provided only via USB GSM modem. It is happening almost every day. When I look into /var/log/syslog there are millions of lines with “dhcpcd: received SIGPIPE” string in it. I am not sure how to solve this issue.
I guess I try to disable FireMotD service in hope it will solve my midnight disconnecting issue. I hope it will not break the system
I know I diverge way off topic but this is the right thread I guess
FireMotD has nothing to do with dhcpcd. I suggest to stop guessing around and arbitrarily try things.
dhcpcd crashing is probably the effect of network problems not the cause.
So either move to a supported setup (Ethernet or Wi-Fi) or don’t ask for help on your system, please.
