Ah Ha!

It was the initial IP range. Booted right up with 192.168.0.xxx/24. I then manually set its IP to my 192.168.10.xxx/24 in the network settings, it's a happy camper now.

It also appears to be happy with the 32 GB SLC.

Thanks much!

Hallo,
habe gerade die Meteobridge mal auf den Raspberry 4 installiert.
Habe alle Menüs durchforstet, kann aber keine Möglichkeit finden den Raspberry herunterzufahren um ihn vom Netz zu trennen.
Wer kann helfen?

Currently there is no shutdown for the Raspberry - just reboot. Will be added to next update.

Aber Neustart und dann Netzstecker ziehen ist auch nicht das wahre.
Bin ja noch am testen mit einer Consumer SD-Karte aber die schießt man damit schnell mal ab, habs mit Meteohub schon erlebt.
Hab mich mit SSH eingeloggt und so per "poweroff" runtergefahren ist aber etwas umständlicher.

Just released update does provide a "power off" button on "System - Adminstration" tab.

Da habe ich gleich noch eine Frage.
Wenn ich die Wetterstation "Froggit WH2600 PRO WiFi" https://www.froggit.de/product_info.php ... wMQAvD_BwE in Meteobridge einbinden will muss ich wohl bei der Auswahl in Meteobridge "GW1000" wählen?

Is there some sort of confirmation if I click power off? I wouldn't want to power off something in a remote location by mistake...

Yes there is a pop-up confirmation.

Yes, internally the protocol is identical.
You have to set the correct IP-address also.

It is also perhaps worthy to note that manually changing the /etc/resolv.conf file is not persistent through a reboot. You do need to change the values for the DNS in the /tmp/resolv.conf or perhaps even in the /tmp/resolv.conf.d/resolv.conf.auto file to make it persistent through a reboot.
...
I had the same problem with Meteobridge on a RPI3B where it couldn't reslove local lan names. This is how I fixed it,:

ssh into Meteobridge as as root, then enter these commands:

Code: Select all

/etc/init.d/dnsmasq stop
/etc/init.d/dnsmasq disable
Doing this automatically creates the symbolic links (two hops) the correct file to /etc/resolv.conf

This disables the DNS (and DHCP) server running on the RPI and will survive reboots. I would rather have my router do the DNS functions instead of Meteobridge sending DNS requests outside to the wan.

I'm still testing the proper function of Meteobridge after this change, but so far there doesn't seen to be any downside and it's working as expected.

Hi

I have switched from TP-Link to a RPI 4B.

At present, it is nearly impossible to get a SLC card. I know a regular SD card can be used temporarily.

Instead of a SD card I will use a SSD drive and boot Meteobridge from the drive. I can not find anywhere that says it is possible. Has anyone tried it?

An SSD drive is comparable to an SLC card, right?

Thanks

Gert

I tried to put the RPI image on an SSD and it didn't work...it just would not boot. :cry:

I plugged a monitor to see what was happening and it starts to load stuff and look like a normal Linux boot but then it freezes and starts back over. Error below as you can see says that the image is missing critical component to be able to boot from USB.

I used a Pi 4 B with latest firmware updates (the ones that unlock USB boot capability). I can USB boot Raspberry Pi OS with no SD card installed with the very same SSD (M.2 NVMe in USB enclosure). I'm also using a proper Canakit Pi 4 Power Supply 3.5A.

Hi Galfert

Thanks for your input., then it makes no sense to try.

The SSD could be a good solution, maybe in the future Boris will see if it can be done.
