No problem, there are lots of little moving parts to all of this.. Just read carefully and plan your next move. Sorry to hear about your injury, get well and let us know if you have any other questions....

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)

odroid (XU4) arrived yesterday, just booted it this morning.. Should have an image in the next day or so for download and a guide if necessary... I found a Jessie image so I'll look at that first then odrobian.

Image is pretty much done, I need to load the Lua for the backup script than package it, test and then I can host it.
Oh and I need to probably post instructions on expanding the partition..

Did you get the imaged emmc card with your XU4? That uses Debian.

BTW, the Odrobian image may not work with openLuup. I played with it and found something about that since Odrobian actually creates a double boot, there are issues with some linux apps working correctly. But you may know more about this than I do.

Actually no, I have a lot of Micro SDHC cards for testing so I'm using one of those. I'll take a look at Odrobian later this week when I have time and determine if it's going to be an uphill battle. The Jessie 8 image I'm using now was different than those for the rPi and x86, I had issues getting Weaved loaded as well as dkjson and a few other modules. However it's all working well now. I need to document root credentials and user credentials as well some other administrative tasks to secure and expand the partition.

I'll end up converting this device to a dedicated NAS server, serving up Graphite for my dedicated openLuup servers (running DataYours) as well as a backup LZ. I'll ditch the Micro SD for an SSD then call it a day.

@bucko

When you received your eMMC, was it accompanied by an adapter so you can load images using a PC ? Please confirm.
It appears they have a modified version of Win32DiskImager for the Odroid so you can load an image:

OK, moved things around a bit so I could add the Odroid XU4 image. I still owe instructions on this but here's a quick run down of what you can do.

[1] Load the image to the card (eMMC or Micro SD).
[2] Expand the partition (your choice as to how but I'll supply the Gparted/Virtual Box method).
[3] Load card to the device.
[4] Boot
[5] SSH into the device or start using openLuup/AltUI.

Login using credentials provided on page/post #1.

Yes, you pay extra, but it is a Trandsend adapter that is 100% compatable with writing images to the XU4. The Win32DiskImager is also what I use. I have re imaged my emmc about 3 times now with no problems.

In fact once you get an image put together, I will wipe out everything and re image again fresh. I still need to get a VPN working on my XU4 otherwise I cannot connect to Altui.

Thank you CudaNet. I will download it now. I'll give it a shot without a VPN, but I expect a little trouble. So far I haven't been successful setting up my Astrill VPN on the XU4 yet. But I will try again.

I went to the link on pg1 and downloaded the image. (v7_rjl8_031316) I believe it turns out to be the same image as your original one. It has the same name and it will not boot my XU4.

So could you give me the URL link to this new one?


OOPS! Ok I found the link. I didn't go far enough down the page. But the link want me to sign into One Drive.

I was ready to jump into this again with attempting to bridge to a spare Vera, but after re-reading Page One I don't see any mention of the bridge files.

Is it possible to include these in the Jesse Lite version?
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.
