New Raspberry Pi OS

I see in today's news that there is a new version of Raspberry Pi OS, Rasperrian Stretch, or something like that. Wondering if this will have any adverse affect on the plugin.

Re: New Raspberry Pi OS

If you don't use it likely not..
I strongly suggest not to use v.0 of anything.
Anyway that happens every year .. will test when I am back home.

Re: New Raspberry Pi OS

Just looking at the description for Debian stretch.
Userid pi can not switch on sudo without password.
And pi is not the default id.

That will need some work.

Re: New Raspberry Pi OS

Thanks for the look Karl. I suspected the login/SUDO stuff would be a problem.

It matters not to me right now because I've yet to implement this plugin. I've been gathering the needed hardware (pi's and beacons) for a while. Just haven't had time to pull it all together so far.

Just use the current posted sd Image.

Jessie will be supported for some several months and the plugin does not require any facing things anyway.

Re: New Raspberry Pi OS

another update on raspberry from jessie to stretch (debian versions)

it seems to work now.. some of the changes:

the output format of ifconfig has changed

from
Code: Select all
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr b8:27:eb:1b:1f:50 
          inet addr:192.168.1.22  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          inet6 addr: fe80::b353:51f6:14af:313b/64 Scope:Link
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:265423 errors:0 dropped:64 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:22955 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:16819844 (16.0 MiB)  TX bytes:3578725 (3.4 MiB)
to
Code: Select all
eth0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        inet 192.168.1.29  netmask 255.255.255.0  broadcast 192.168.1.255
        inet6 fe80::dce1:1b86:bed4:154c  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>
        ether b8:27:eb:db:92:4d  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
        RX packets 293588  bytes 21576528 (20.5 MiB)
        RX errors 0  dropped 64  overruns 0  frame 0
        TX packets 53652  bytes 12473747 (11.8 MiB)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0



so looking for "etho " has to also look for "eth0:" and
"inet addr: " changes to "inet "

and
"HWaddr b8:27:eb:1b:1f:50" => "ether b8:27:eb:1b:1f:50"

don't know why that was necessary .. or what the benefit is ..


still want to let it run for some days before I post the "stretch" version.
