emonSD first boot

(Paul) #1

I just downloaded the latest Oct18 image and stuck it in a Pi 3, Not something I do often so here’s a couple of observations/questions

When I first navigated to http://emonpi I got this screen

Since I am already connected via wifi as I put a copy of wpa_supplicant.conf in the boot partition before putting the sdcard in in the Pi I don’t need either of those options. Could we have a “Skip” option for users that use the same method as I used, plus some users will opt for Ethernet cable rather than wifi.

Clicking log in takes me to the registration screen.

Why is it essential I provide an email address for a device that has no email server or client installed? I understand why the emoncms.org server insists, but this is not really required here. IIRC it’s just a setting in settings.php, so why is it not off by default for the emonSD?

Mmmmh! So why am I not packing the latest emoncms?

when I download the update log from the admin page I get a file containing one line which is “/home/pi/data/emonpiupdate.log does not exist!” so why did first boot not run?

So I’m rebooting now, maybe “firstboot” will run on the “Second boot”? I’ll keep you posted!

Aha! that looks better,

Oh! that not so much!

Lets look at the update log, I’ll attach it here

Ok, it’s gonna be one of those days! It is a .txt file !!!

Here’s the log file content, it raises a few questions.

There are a few errors, it tells me emonhub has been restarted, more than once and that the service runner process cannot be found, and yet it has been started !!!

I’m sensing this isn’t going to be a quicky, maybe I’ll comeback to it another time.

The fundamental issue is that the EmonSD is heavily weighted towards the EmonPi hardware. This is not an incorrect position, but it causes a number of problems as a result.

I had a similar experience and was part way through writing up a comment on it but I got distracted!

Personally I think the whole structure is fatally flawed from 2 github organisations, through to some modules being ‘core’ and others being optional (but actually essential) and out of date documentation. This is the root cause of many of the issues we are seeing.

At a minimum, I think it really needs 3 images or a setup script that is done on the basis of target hardware:

  • Basic SD - core EmonCMS requirements - no RFM module
  • EmonBase
  • EmonPi

I think a setup script is the way forward rather than a pre-prepared SD Card. The exception may be 2 images specifically for an EmonPi or an EmonBase on an RPi (although this could be done via a script).

The setup page should only display if wpa_supplicant is empty of wifi configuration. I tested this last week and it did work fine so that is a bit strange. I will make a note to check again. It should also show the Ethernet option.

Sure, its there since emoncms can be used on many different target platforms with different requirements. E.g self install on remote server where user wants password recovery emails. The email requirement at register is not a setting in settings.php yet. Email verification is a setting, essentially you can enter any email in that box on emonSD as the email will not be verified.

I will double check a fresh image and see if I can replicate the issues that you saw - I’m not aware of those issues and ran the update process on a number of stock images week before last.

An Ethernet option will appear if an Ethernet cable is plugged in.

The only error I can see is rpi-rw: command not found this is nothing to worry about and has been fixed recently:

It should run on first boot provided Internet connectivity is available. This first boot updates takes some time since it’s a sizable update. It’s usually ran in the factory on shop purchased units so most users will have the latest version ready to go on first boot. If using an emonPi the LCD screen will indicate that an update is in progress.

The message is also nothing to worry about, since I imagine you are running emonSD on an RFM69Pi system, the firmware update will only work on an emonPi.

I’ve wondered this since I got my EmonBase and read about all of the confusion between the two “Update” buttons on the admin web page… Is there not a way to determine if the hardware is an EmonBase or an EmonPi (or neither) and do “the right thing” for each?

If there’s no software way to tell, perhaps a circuit modification could enable the detection? Something like a GPIO check for connection to ground on a specific pin that is different for the different add-on boards?

(Brian Orpin) #9

I’d suggest testing the image without the RFM board.

(Robert Wall) #10

It’s necessary to choose the “wrong” one when you have a custom sketch in the front end, otherwise it gets overwritten back to the ‘default’ sketch when you update.

That works because a different baud rate is used to communicate with the RFM12[69]Pi.

0 Likes

(Glyn Hudson) #11

The only way to detect would be to test the different baud rates.

However, updating the RFM69Pi firmware is unlikely to be needed, there has been any changes to the RFM60Pi firmware since 2016: https://github.com/openenergymonitor/RFM2Pi/releases/tag/1.3.0. Therefore, as an emonBase user is doesn’t really matter if you run emonPi update instead of emonBase update since there is no new FW updates.

I agree, it would be good to make the microcontroller FW update a separate process from the emoncms update

I’m all for this. It would also reduce the risk of hitting the “wrong” update button if you had a custom sketch loaded (as @Robert.Wall posted above).

(Robert Wall) #14

I agree. It’s the principal reason why I advise people against trying to calibrate/customise the front end, because it’s far too easy to lose it and have to repeat the work.

I’ve never understood why the front-end sketch has to be reloaded each time emoncms is updated - surely it should be an option, normally defaulting to ‘no’ and defaulting to ‘yes’ only when there’s an update to the front end sketch.

I think the key thing here is the fact I put a wpa_supplicant.conf file in the boot partition before installing to the Pi.

You may well be testing with an Ethernet cable or WiFi APmage to set up wifi since the Rasbian method I used was not possible on previous emonSD images due to the RO FS.

I believe (but have not confirmed or tested further) that the wifi network might not have auto-configured early enough for the firstboot to run properly. If this is the case, then whilst I understand why it might be this way due to the previous images being RO, moving forward, the emonSD should really support this route to setting up wifi. It is by far the easiest method.

Hopefully, if the firstboot script becomes a systemd unit to get rid of rc.local, we will have more control over what happens when. the “firstboot” service can be triggered after there is a network connection, regardless of how it comes about.

That is significantly different to mine. I would have expected the first time the updater runs (regardless of being at first boot or second) to be exactly the same if the image and update script versions are the same (aside from the lcd and rfm2pi/emonpi fw which could be different for very obvious reasons).

I did cite 2 errors in the text you quoted, emonhub is reported as not running in emoncms despite “it tells me emonhub has been restarted, more than once” and at the end of the script it tells me the “service runner process cannot be found, and yet it has been started” and yet in emoncms it shows as running. Isuspect the latter is just a hangover from the recent changes to the service-runner perhaps. It is running so it is NOT the problem the log reports. But emonhub has failed to be restarted for some reason (or crashed out very soon after the update).

Then there is the 2 minor errors about rpi-rw at the start and rpi-ro towards the end, as you say nothing to worry about and easily fixed.

I am also not concerned about the fw not updating, I have no rfm2pi or emonpi board on the bare RPi at this point. That was expected, as was the lcd warning.

But if you look closer there are these errors

If the emonpi repo is not successfully updated, there really in’t much point in continuing the update process as you end up in between versions or crossed version might be a better term. A warning and abort would be better at that point if not successful.

The fact it was updating from an old version of the emonpi repo is why the update is significantly different to Trystans example.

What ever the reasons behind the fail, maybe it was network, maybe this will be better managed in systemd, either way, I am just reporting what happened when I simply booted to a new image, I had not interfered with anything other than pre-adding the wifi details as explained above.

I have just booted this up again to check a couple of things (it was powered down after posting the other night) and when I navigate to the IP of the RPi I got the setup screen again

this time there is a “24” in the top left of the screen. I have to click “log in” to get the log in box.

The wpa_supplican.conf file is present and the content is as I left it on the boot partition.

Whilst I don’t necessarily think you are wrong, I do not think that is the issue here. Or at least not the one I was referring too. I expected the FW update to crash out ungracefully, but as others have posted here, this is actually the “officially supported method” to avoid overwriting custom FW or temporarily bricking a rfm12 based rfm2pi.

0 Likes

(Paul) #19

In which case why don’t we just do away with the update emonbase button to reduce the chance of screwing up an rfm12 based rfm2pi?

Since Trystan is keen to bring the methods of updating for emonsd and non-emonsd systems closer. Why do we not just change the button to “update” and in the settings.php we have a “update path” setting that is “/home/pi/emonpi/update_emonpi” by default in the emonpi.default.settings.php (and even in process_settings.php if we must) .

then users can edit that line to $update_path = /home/pi/emonpi/update_rfm69pi or $update_path = /home/pi/emonpi/update_rfm12pi if they have an emonbase, (if they click update before changing it will fail to update due to emonpi defaults and not brick thier rfm12pi) OR the rest of us can edit it to something like $update_path = /home/randomuser/myownrepo/update_just_emoncms or some official offering perhaps?

This is safer, simpler, more flexible and broadens the use of the update button to non-emonsd installs.

[edit]

eg when the emonSTM comes out, just drop a update_emonSTM file into the emonPi repo (maybe it’s time the emonpi FW was seperated from the emonSD stuff!)

Also just fior some insight as to how these multiple scripts might work, I imagine something like

#!/bib/bash

source emonsd_update.sh

avrdude -v -c arduino -p ATMEGA328P -P /dev/ttyAMA0 -b 38400 -U flash:w:/home/pi/RFM2Pi/firmware/RFM69CW_RF_Demo_ATmega328/RFM12_Demo_ATmega328.cpp.hex

where emonsd_update.sh is a universal update script called from each of the various individual update scripts that can be called from emoncms.

This also accommodates optional FW installs to the emonpi for legacy or CM when it lands. eg $update_path = /home/pi/emonpi/update_emonpiCM or $update_path = /home/pi/emonpi/update_emonpiBETA etc etc

emonSD next steps
(Glyn Hudson) #20

Interesting, it seemed the git pull on emonPi failed because of a gnutls_handshake() error. I’ve not seen this before. Searching the web for possible answers indicates this could be a network issue or some sort of firewall or proxy. Whenever emonSD runs the first update in the factory we have never had this error before, I will see if I can find any more info on this error.

The first boot updates checks for an Internet connection (by pinging google) before starting the update. Firstboot update will not run until an Internet connection is detected, this may not be the first boot if not connection was present initially
