  (solved) Noobs for Openplotters hangs at Boot
Posted by: waldmattis - 06-03-2018, 06:00 AM - Forum: How do I...? - Replies (10)

Good morning.

This morning I downloaded Noobs for Openplotters.

I formatted a sd-card with SD-Formatter and unzipped the
file to the freshly formatted sd-card.

I put the card into my Raspberry Pi 2 rev. B and switched Power on.
Immidiately the Green LED lighted without a break.
After 30 minutes I shut down.

Is this hanging on boot a known problem?

Is there any help?


  How to save to USB-Stick
Posted by: waldmattis - 06-03-2018, 05:44 AM - Forum: How do I...? - No Replies

Good morning.

When I try to change the download-folder in Openplotters Chromium,
for exampe to an USB-Stick or to an external harddisk, I get a warning
"you do not have the rights to do so".
How can I make the Debian behind Openplotters to give writing access
to external devices?

Thank you for any help.


  AP RPi2
Posted by: CVL - 06-02-2018, 08:36 AM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (9)


I got this morning your image, put it onto the SD card, booted and didn't find anymore the Acces-Point. I fiddled around with the diffenrent Options of network tab, especially RPi3 AP + Client and RPi3+ AP + Client, but without success.

My installation is running on a RPi 2, with the Edimax WiFi-Dongle, which worked nicely in 0.17. Do I understand that you changed the whole networking way when you passed to Raspian stretch? Is hostap still the same?

Thanks for some hints.

  Filter incoming PGNs ?
Posted by: Alpenskipper - 06-02-2018, 03:12 AM - Forum: How do I...? - Replies (2)


How can you filter incoming PGNs from s NMEA2000/ Sealtalk ng network?

Especially I want to block PGN 130577.

The reason I need to do this, is that my Seatalk ng network sends different PGNs, with the same information.

e.g. SOG is send in PGN

129026 with the correct value

and in

130577 with a vaulty value

Both PGNs are mixed in the same signalK key and lets the SOG reading jump between right and faulty values.

It is the same for COG.

I tried with actisense NMEA reader. The PGNs can only be filtered within this App. The filter does not persist in OP.
As I understood, the filter list must be activated by OP with a command.

I also got a suggestion here in the forum to filter in node red, but in node red, the PGN data is already mixed to a signalK key.

I also checked the Raymarine network, no option to block sending PGNs.

Without the possibilitiy to block PGN 130577 I can’t use the CAN-USB converter.

Any ideas?

Hi all,

 I'm trying to get my St1000+ working with Pypilot. It's connected to OpenPlotter with a serial to usb converter (the one from sailoog website).

No problem for basic connexion, but i get this error message:

Autopilot errors: no motor controller!

Anyone can help me fix this ?

Thank you !

  [CLOSED] CPU over 90% with gqrx V1.0
Posted by: Luckbert - 06-01-2018, 05:15 AM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (7)

Hello, everybody, 
I connected an RTLSDR dongle and started gqrx via sdr-Radio. As soon as the window opens, the CPU rises to over 90% and clear reception is not possible. 
Is this a bug or have I made a mistake under the thousand settings. 
I can receive voices and music from a regional radio station but only chopped off. I'm afraid it's the lack of processing power.
I can't tell if it was better in surgery 0.17 either. 
Greetings Jürgen

  [SOLVED] - OP1.0 - SD card copier does not write to SD cards
Posted by: Alpenskipper - 06-01-2018, 04:52 AM - Forum: Bug Reports - No Replies

I am not able to clone the SD card to backup it with SD card copier.

I tried it exactly in the same way as on OP17.1..

Tried several SD cards.
