Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

Does anyone have an updated stats on whether the Frankenkernel hack still works with current kernel releases? In other words using the latest kernel image and drivers off the Github repository along with the latest Meteohub release, is this still possible? Note that you'll need to grab both the late...

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

I'm not the admin, but no, it doesn't. The 3B+ isn't compatible with the 3B, and 5.0s doesn't run on the 3B+.

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

I assume it'll be the same problem as with the Meteostick drivers, the combination of the very old kernel image that Meteohub ships with and the updated kernel files in the Frankenkernel configuration means that the Wifi drivers aren't loaded. You could try and find more recent drivers that match th...

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

In your procedure, you tell to copy rpi-firmware-master.zip after SSH on the booted rpi. Could you tell how you copy it ? If I understand well, the SD card is running on the Raspberry Pi and I don’t know how you can copy the zip file since it is only downloadable from another computer (such a PC).....

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

So just to repeat those steps: Download the latest rpi-firmware-master.zip. Copy the contents of /boot, including subdirectories, onto /boot on the SD card. Put the SD card in the Pi and boot it (hopefully). SSH in to the booted Pi and copy rpi-firmware-master.zip onto the system. Follow the driver ...

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

- Downloaded meteohub image (5.0s) and wrote it on the SD (8gb) with Win32disk image. - Then downloaded the rpi-updated-image, copied the files from "overlays" file and pasted (and replaced) the files on the meteohub image (previously wrote on the SD card) - 3rd I downloaded firmware-master and rep...

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

It's now up at this location. Note that this gives you a bootable kernel, to add the drivers needed for things like the Meteostick you need to follow the instructions in this post.

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

Ah, sorry, that's a free-upload site that deletes files after awhile. Let me find somewhere else to use.

Alternatively, if someone has a random server availably to host things I can post it there.

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

Does anyone know whether the current release, 5.1, works on a 3B+ yet? There's nothing in the release announcements one way or the other, but I'd like to upgrade from the Frankenkernel I'm running at some point.

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

Ah, yes, if you've got a spare Pi that's not a 3B+ lying around then booting the 5.0s image on that and upgrading everything and then transferring it to the 3B+ is an easier option. I only had the 3B+ (without pulling an existing non-3B+ from operation and using that) and didn't want to go and buy a...

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

It will be accessing the card, but remember that the current Meteohub image is totally unbootable on a 3B+. if you connect an HDMI monitor (or use HDMI -> DVI, or whatever) you'll see the Pi locked at the rainbow boot screen, it'll only boot if you go through the Frankenkernel patch process. Even th...

Re: Rasberry PI Image 5.0s - Demo Expired

You need to do the upgrade to 5.0x, which isn't expired. That is, install 5.0s, then upgrade to 5.0x.

Re: Email service fails

I've got the same problem, 5.0s (and I can't upgrade to 5.0x in case that fixes it, see the Frankenkernel post).

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

So while the above config boots, it won't work with a Meteostick, or possibly anything else, because the 5.0s image contains the wrong drivers: modprobe ftdi_sio libkmod: ERROR ../libkmod/libkmod.c:554 kmod_search_moddep: could not open moddep file '/lib/modules/4.14.39-v7+/modules.dep.bin' modprobe...
