Starting from Scratch on a Raspberry Pi 4 8GB

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007efebfff8628>
  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: RPi 4 8 GB and 32 GB micro SD + zwave: Aeotec Z-Stick Gen5 (ZW090) - UZB
    • OS: Raspian which comes with openhabian 1.6 beta
    • Java Runtime Environment: Zulu 8 (standard openhabian)
    • openHAB version: 2.5.8-1 (standard openhabian)

This thread aims on documenting my issues which hopefully helps others.
Please feel free to comment and let me know if I need to take actions (github issues and such).

First thing I encountered is that a soft reboot (sudo reboot) will cause the RPI to hang without an IP adress (connection refused using putty). This used to work with the RPi 3 and is true for dhcp and static IP in dhcpcd.conf.
And the Display stays black. So it does not have something to do with the IP settings, but with the failing boot process - maybe mentioned here:


After a hard reset it works reliably.

–> This issue was possibly related to zram not working properly in combination of 8GB.
At least it was gone after deactivation of zram.

When starting oh I get - and don’t have a clue, what this means or if I can ignore this:

  1. Cannot install influxdb:


    When installing influx manually, /usr/bin/influx is missing.

  2. openhabian-system setting: change openhabian user password does not work because it always says that new password does not match.

  3. Starting OH with sudo systemctl start openhab2.service kind of hangs (does not return to bash)

I got My rpi 4 8gig yesterday.

I running openhab 2.4 and 3 on it running docker. like 20 min to setup.

Lucky you :slight_smile:
For me it’s still a way to go.
I might come back to you then :wink:

Don’t worry, you cannot and must not compare the openHAB-only docker image with openHABian,
feature set is way off parity. Also in terms of prerequisites such as required knowledge.

PS: consider using the new auto backup feature right away

Thanks - I will.

Do you know this thread ( Raspberry Pi 4: Network non-functional directly after (re)boot ) ?

Thanks - yes, I found this while searching around.
However, even with a static IP it’s the same behaviour.

As you use a SD card I assume that you do not have an USB3 to SATA adapter connected.

Not yet :slight_smile:

@mstormi
Which openhabian version would you recommend for the RPi4?
Both (1.6 beta and 1.5 support the RPi4, but 1.6 mentions 8GB
Is 1.5 more stable and recommended (for Rookies :wink:

no use 1.6a or any newer test build

Thanks, will do.
Just to be sure:
This first one (32 bit):


Or where can I find the test builds?

Startup issues of OH:

a) sudo systemctl start openhab2.service
Does not start OH - status returns:

[10:23:45] openhabian@homer:~$ sudo systemctl status openhab2.service

b) sudo openhab-cli start
Does start OH in the console - but when I logout, OH will be shutdown (I don’t know this behaviour from thr karaf console)

After a reboot OH is not starting either.
Last openhab-log entry:

I would appreciate a hint what to check in this case.

I don’t see something suspicious in messages or syslog

EDIT:
If I start openhab in the console (sudo openhab-cli start) I don’t see openhab in “top” (just java):

And I don’t see the syslog in Browser (port 9001) is not available, but PaperUI works.

Furthermore I get in the colsole:

openhab> Experimental:  JNI_OnUnload called.

In the console I still can call bundles:list, but the logs don’t show any activity.

In messages I see a lot of ZRAM related stuff which does not look well (write error):
@mstormi Any idea about this?
Is it possible that the sd-card has an issue (almost brand new)

Browser port 9001 is only in openhabian. Did you wipe the sd card clean and put openhabian on it ?

Yes, I started with a brand new openhabian image 1.6a this morning.
the only change I did after the initial startup was just minor changes like connecting OH to the myopenhab cloud service.

Ok cool I will see if I can replecate your problem.

I have downloaded openhabian-pi-raspios32-202007302224-git0290f04-crcd2852e99.img.xz
Unzipped it
Used Etcher to put it on SD card
Put it in PI
I am up to here
Screenshot 2020-09-20 200554

Thank you very much!
To be on the safe side I will do the same with another sd-card.
Unfortunately this is just 8GB, but I hope it will be sufficient.

After a fresh image on 8GB and a restart I cannot even upgrade:

And openhab is obviously not installed - maybe this is related to the 8GB only?!

bad idea, that’ll leave temp files behind that user openhab cannot write/delete

No point in doing that.

it should do.

That’s my desparate try to compensate my lack of knowledge. :wink:

So, you mean this is better? (I usually used this in the past) - but it does not work.
sudo systemctl start openhab2

because OH isn’t installed as you said yourself

Stop guessing start debugging following the DEBUG guide as the message told you to.
