#1250222 enigma2.sh script will not start after booting the set-top box

Posted by betacentauri on 3 September 2020 - 10:33

Looks ok.

I'm no expert, but afaik all scripts in /etc/init.d/rcS and then all scripts for runlevel /etc/rc3.d are executed. Wait means that all scripts have to finish execution before next line (gui:3:respawn:....enigma2.sh) for the runlevel is executed.


So either a script in /etc/rc3.d runs infinite or a scripts returns an error code.

Check "ps -w" whether a script is still running. Remove all own scripts if you have some.

#1231714 One proc file for detecting the MACHINE in all enigma2 images.

You can write a kernel module which creates the /proc entries by yourself. Is not very difficult. So you don’t need the manufacturer for it.
I only say it’s possible. I don’t say it’s better when we write it.

#1216202 Problem with the weather plugin. Can’t add any location.

You can try this, but I think you need to use twisted Agent to workaround it

import ssl
  _create_unverified_https_context = ssl._create_unverified_context
except AttributeError:
  ssl._create_default_https_context = _create_unverified_https_context

I’m not sure whether it is already fixed. But we have to be sure that it is. Otherwise users will “kill” us.

#1194898 merge requests for PLi's git

Mixing (one file spaces, other tabs) I don't really prefer. Maybe only if we want to move slowly to spaces. (Mixing in one file is bad and shouldn't be done).


I really prefer tabs. I don't understand why spaces are the standard. Doesn't make sense for me. For me as long as tabs are allowed we should use them.

#1191534 Cutting a recording is impossible

You can always use tab to complete the commands/filenames.
So you can say /media/hdd/202 <tab>
then you see most likely
With another tab all files matching 2020 should be displayed. Then enter eg 0422 <tab> and you should see the files for the 20200422. I hope you understand what I mean.

Please try this ddrescue. This time self build. It's a static binary, so no libs are needed. It's quite large as it's static and not stripped.

It's the problem that the virtual keyboard disappears for a tens of a second when you move the cursor to another character. You can see it only on the TV and not via webif.

#1155051 Update rootfs on Vu+ Solo 4K

Posted by betacentauri on 21 January 2020 - 17:29

From your PM I see:

Found mountpoint for rootfs file: /mnt/usb/sda1

The empty cmdline is also not ok and not normal.

Both imply that some kind of multiboot mechanism was installed by the user. I heard that that was available for solo4k, but I never used or really saw it.


If the user has detached the USB stick / HDD(/mnt/usb/sda1), he should attach it again. If root is still present on that stick/hdd, box should work properly again.


If that's not possible, please post output of "mount". Is the /dev/mmcblk0p4 used for rootfs?

Please don't do it yet. My idea would be to flash a proper kernel (from OpenPLi). The kernel will use /dev/mmcblk0p4 as rootfs. It works if really a rootfs is available on /dev/mmcblk0p4. If not, we might have a bigger problem than before. So better wait and think twice before bricking the box.

But maybe with proper kernel, USB flashing works again....

Du könntest mal probieren ob ein Neustart einmal am Tag das Problem behebt. Wenn ja, geht der Box vielleicht der Speicher(RAM) aus. Ist aber nur geraten.
