Update 5.0k

Post by admin » Thu Oct 08, 2015 8:51 pm

Update to Meteohub V5.0k (NSLU2, x86, SheevaPlug, RPI) brings these features:
  • new bandwidth settings (small, normal, wide) to optimize RF reception from Vantage console retransmits when using Meteostick. In order to have this working, it needs update to Meteostick to FW 2.3b2 (or newer). To receive Vantage console retransmits it needs setting "wide".

Has this line been added to the crontab for the RPI2 for this update?

Code: Select all

*/1 * * * * ([ -n "`/bin/pidof thttpd`" ] && [ -n "`/bin/pidof thttpdbackup`" ]) || rcthttpd restart
I had to manually add it to 5.0i for both my RPI2's to keep the web interface running. I would like to know if I will need to manually add it again before I update further.

Thank you!

yes, if this line is not already there the installer will add it.

with respect to crontab:

I just rebuilt my rpi - had to load the 5.0f image then updated to 5.0k.

This is the first time for me but after less than an hour the http server died on me (never had a problem with 5.0i). I ssh'ed in and restarted thttpd. Looked in the crontab file (/etc/crontab) and the above entry was not there - should it have been?

And can I/should I copy it verbatim to the bottom of that file?

Thanks,

Tom

Please add it somewhere at the top. No idea why it has not inserted on your rig.

i will note that the crontab line in question does exist in this file:

/var/cron/tabs/root

but not in /etc/crontab

In fact there is quite a bit of meteohub stuff in this /var/cron version but not in /etc/crontab

Don't know what that means or why, and really not sure if I should add to /etc/crontab or leave that alone?

Thanks for digging into this. I will will have to check what /etc/crontab is doing instead of var/cron/tabs/root where the user crontabs should reside.
