I've updated the original thread, we now have two guides. One for Aptitude and the other specific to the turn-key install.

I actually checked into Odrobian when you first mentioned the XU. Honestly, I'm still not sure. However, if you have an extra Micro laying around give it a try.  In fact, you don't need to do anything except load it and see if it works. If you don't have an extra card then definitely wait this one out.

OK! Now you guys are getting it together. Glad to hear about this image "load and go" thing.

However that begs the question now from me. I don't use a PI. I got an Odroid XU4 running a ported Jessie Debian called Odrobian. Do you think this work for this SBC or does it need to be ported to work on the XU4?

FYI- I just tried the img on my XU4 (emmc). Sadly it does not work. No boot at all.

Yes, that's not good news... So how hot does the Odroid run since it appears to ship with a fan? I'm looking to replace my pi2 with one of these, just wishing this was fanless.

Anyone creating a docker container?  Love the pi plan, but if you already have a Docker-capable NAS, it is real convenient to run new apps that way sans hardware...
Long Live UI5!  (OK finally made the switch to UI7 in January 2018, and am pretty happy....)

Cudanet, successfully loaded the turnkey image onto my Raspberry Pi 3, no problems to report.

I'm afraid my knowledge of Docker is limited....

Thanks for the update, hopefully this was a leaps-and-bounds improvement.

Searching the forum for "openLuup" and "docker" will find a handful of threads which mention this issue (and with some success) including http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,35251.msg260428.html#msg260428

The outstanding problem appears to be finding a way to make the content persistent across restarts... it's way out of my league, I'm afraid.

Oh, if Airedale has created a Docker, we should be set.  I use his Echo Bridge Docker image already.  Persistence should not be a problem if you create a directory and specify it when creating/starting the container.  (EDIT:  I was referring to configuration file persistence, but this looks more complicated.)

My XU4 has not really got too hot. But I have not used it that much yet. The fan cycles on/off when needed. I'll say it does have a lot more power than the PI no doubt.

My purpose for getting it was for running openluup. I hope to see it working in the future.

Quick question:


Which version of Jesse is the image (Lite or Full).


I've tried to load Weaver, Node-Red and the editor, all return an error:


 command not found


Have no idea what I have missed or if this is due to a partial installation vs a full install.


Living in the Land of Oz, give me a vegemite sandwich. Home Seer, Vera Lite & Edge, Popp, Black Cat Smart Hub & Vera G, Black Cat Lite 1 & 2's a Black Cat Dimmer or 2, Fantem Tec and then some  Black Cat Cat's Eye PIR's & Door-Window Sensors, RFXComm, Broadlink RMPro & Mini plus a Z-UNO or 2.

The image is Jessie lite pre-loaded with Weaved (I assumed that what you meant by Weaver). Are you using sudo to install ?
For Weaved you just need to type $ sudo weavedinstaller

See Turn-key_rj8 guide, step [35] for detailed instructions on Weaved configuration..
Do you need node-red since AltUI seems to have this baked in (as a proof of concept) ?

Thanks,
I was using the Turn Key @ Step 35.
This time it worked.


I wanted to see how node-red works, as I'm working towards using a RP2 Z Wave daughter board rather than Vera as the radio.
I also now have a surplus of spare time as I'm off work with a work related injury and need to exercise the grey matter for the next 3 months, I can't think of a better way. :)


Now I see what Weaved does. Didn't really need it (ATM)
