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...

BUG: Invalid invocation of dmidecode on non-x86 systems

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

For anyone else who wants to run Meteohub on a 3B+, I've uploaded the Frankenkernel files as rpi-updated-image.zip . Note that this contains only the updated kernel and drivers to allow Meteohub to run on a 3B+. It contains no Meteohub files, you'll need to download the Meteohub image (currently 5.0...

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

Just another followup to document this for others who may be stuck with this: The problem is quite dramatic – the 3B+ is TOTALLY UNBOOTABLE with all versions of NOOBS older than March 14, 2018. See https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=212452, which gives Frankenkernel-style instru...

Just as a followup, here's one of many articles on the topic: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=208596 The 3B+ is not compatible with the 3B (great work, Raspberry guys!), you do need a completely new install with the latest kernel and drivers, you apparently can't even dist-upgrade...
