Getting started with Raspberry Pi 4B

Want to monitor my sdm 630 meter with a new RPi4B.

From the reading i’ve done, looks like i need to load EmonCMS image on my RPi

Is the EmonCMS image going to work with RPi4?
Is there a guide available?

If not, is it possible to monitor/log using the standard raspbian buster OS.


(did find this post from TryStanLea promising, but none of the links are working:
Raspberry Pi 4 - #21 by TrystanLea)

I have no idea if the current image will work with an RPi4.

There are some scripts in development that are working reasonably well, but should be regarded as a Beta product now - there are still one or two things to iron out, but the basic functionality is fine.

Probably the best place to start right now.

Thanks, got all installed but run into a login screen loop when i try to enter the lightdm gui (debian 10)… enter login/password, screen black 3 seconds, ask for login/password again…

gonna try next week with a fresh SD card, but please let me know if you have any ideas in the meantime.

Ok, the system is designed to be installed on a Raspbian Lite image so no GUI. You just connect via HTTP.
