Hey guys.

my repo (crichton.homelinux.org) turned dark about a month ago due to the !#$% policy changes of dyndns.

I changed my hostname to crichton.supercomputerrobot.com (from the hostname pool afraid.org). From what I can make out, this one is more reliable than dyndns.org; so I hope that it will remain up....

Code:
deb-src http://crichton.supercomputerrobot.com/debian {lenny|squeeze|wheezy} main contrib non-free

Search the mailing list of eibd-server bcu-sdk. This topic has come up several times over the last years IIRC. I do not use a USB interface myself.

eibd should have support for this for quite some time.

I just noticed that the archive I added last week was an old version, I added a more recent one, and as far as I know, the last official release.

http://crichton.homelinux.org/downloads/knxweb-0.6.1.tar.gz

I also added a small patch that allows you to show the readout value of a e.g. a 9xxx value; this allows to print e.g. Wind speeds, brightness values or even temperatures. It's pretty simple; but allows me to print the values (brightness, temperature and wind speed) from a Theben outside weather station or even the brightness values from Argus detectors.

http://crichton.homelinux.org/downloads/0001-knxweb-add-9xxx-readout.patch

Happy hacking.

I noticed that the snapshot of webknx is gone from the sourceforge page, I am adding the original shapshot I took for the web interfaces here:

http://crichton.homelinux.org/~marc/downloads/knxweb-20080408.tar.gz

There is a new version (knxweb2); available and I have had a look at it; but it seems to be lacking some functions that the old version has and is more complex to use.

Yeah, checked that; but there is no TAG indicating an official release of the code.

http://linknx.sourceforge.net/ still lists the linknx-0.0.1.28 as the last release;

The first version of the HOWTO can be found on http://scorpius.homelinux.org/~marc/debian-squeeze-on-sheeva-nand.html. I've uploaded all the images to flash the SheevaPlug from scratch.

Most of the text is about creating the images, if you're not interested in the process, just browse down to the end (almost) of the page. The final images are available from the web page and should make flashing it pretty trivial.

If something is not quite clear, just let me know.

I've been working on a refresh of this system based on a newer release of GNU/Debian. The previous version was Lenny; the images for Squeeze are ready; I'm just writing up a detailed HOWTO. Drop me a message if you cannot wait and you want the bare bones GNU/Debian images to flash in the SheevaPlug.

  • Linux kernel 3.1.4
  • Debian Squeeze (6.0.3)

A new installation I've been working on...

Hey guys,

This story seems to be read quite a bit, if any of you have set up a similar system; why don't you post some screens of the result? I have two systems running, one on a plug computer and another one on an NLSU2; but for that one, I have to create some nice 3D graphics; it's currently a basic setup with a rudimentary line based plan.

There is a version of eibd that will be released one of these days that will support the USB devices. This howto only covers connecting over the network atm.

note that the link should consistenly be

http://scorpius.homelinux.org/~marc/eib_sheeva.html

(dyndns account changes)

I hope that Martin releases a version soon with support of this so that the packages work with the USB interface out of the box.

I would suggest that you go with these kinds of device specifics to the eibd mailing list; Martin will surely help you.

I believe, that for USB devices; a git snapshot needs to be used; not the released version.

Btw, the new linknx now supports stateless objects; it's really useful to send a command to the bus no matter what the previous status of the object was.

e.g. for non exclusive groups of objects (all shutters/lights down/off; when all the shutters were previously individually controlled).
