ZWave stops working after 1.8.1. Upgrade

Hi There,

I’ve just upgraded openhab on my RPi 2 from 1.7.1 to 1.8.1 and no zwave stops working.

And I only got this log output:

2016-02-06 14:05:41.690 [INFO ] [b.z.i.protocol.ZWaveController:148 ]- Starting Z-Wave controller
2016-02-06 14:05:41.691 [INFO ] [b.z.i.protocol.ZWaveController:156 ]- Z-Wave timeout is set to 5000ms. Soft reset is false.
2016-02-06 14:05:41.693 [INFO ] [b.z.i.protocol.ZWaveController:322 ]- Connecting to serial port /dev/zwave
2016-02-06 14:05:41.792 [ERROR] [b.z.i.protocol.ZWaveController:344 ]- Serial Error: Port /dev/zwave does not exist

But /dev/zwave exists - and I didn’t change anything on the zwave configuration.

Any Ideas

Here at my place zwave works fine after upgrading to 1.8.1 …
I don’t know your linux skills (mine aren’t that good), but could it be that you are using simlinks for your usb port and now only see the simlink and not the actual port???
Because your log definitely states that /dev/zwave does NOT exist …

Good luck.

See 1.8.1 release notes. Add -Dgnu… to your start script again.
