Updating Openhab 2.3.0 to 2.4.0-SNAPSHOT issue on Mac OS

Hey Guys,

I have an issue with Phillips Hue bridge going offline and read a thread about the issue being fixed in the latest sanpshot.

I tried updating via terminal:

sudo runtime/bin/update 2.4.0-SNAPSHOT

Everything updated, but openhab hangs at:

Launching the openHAB runtime…

It just won’t boot up.

Any ideas on how to get around this? Sorry I am pretty new to Openhab :slight_smile:

Could be anything and you’re unfortunately mostly alone with running OH on MacOS.
I wouldn’t even be sure there’s compiled packages of the snapshots available for Mac.
Check out the logs.
Increase log level if that does not show enough (now as I understood you don’t get up to an accessible Karaf console, that’s a bit tricky and I’m not sure how it looks like on MacOS. On Linux there’s a file /var/lib/openhab2/etc/org.ops4j.pax.logging.cfg that you can edit), hopefully it’s the same on MacOS.

The first thing to try after an upgrade where things don’t work is Clear the Cache.

Mac uses a manual install so it is $openhab/userdata/etc where $openhab is the folder where OH was unzipped.
