RPi 4b start-up issue **solved**

Post by 2thepoint »

I received my MB approved sd card today and followed the instructions for set up on a RPi 4b. I downloaded the .bin files and copied them to the sd card via RPI Imager. Installed the sd card and started the RPi. It stops at "root@meteobridge:/#"

I tested the RPi on a NON approved sd card a couple weeks ago and it booted into the MB dashboard. Any help is appreciated. I'm not a coder.
thanks

where do you see the
root@meteobridge:/# ?
While connected to the RPi4 via SSH ?
If so, that looks correct.
But from there you cannot connect to the dashboard.

I'm not sure what you exactly mean by "...it booted into the MB dashboard".

In order to see the dashboard you have to connect to MB via your internet browser -
what happens, if you enter in your browser (on your PC, not on the RPi):
your-RPi-IP-address/cgi-bin/meteobridge.cgi ?
(e.g. 192.168.1.77/cgi-bin/meteobridge.cgi , where you have to replace the example IP by the one of your RPi)
That should give you the dashboard view.

If this doesn't work, you may have to repeat the image writing process - it may for some unknown reason not have completed properly.

And, if you have a monitor directly connected to your RPi, you will there only see the whole startup sequence of the openWRT operating system. Nothing more. The dashboard, browser interface, will have to be started on another computer.
