Full Version: [CLOSED] Fail to Update OpenPlotter 1.0.0 alpha --> 1.2.0 alpha
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I am trying to update my installation to the last version.
First I updated OpenCPN to 5.2.4, then I tried to update OpenPlotter, without success.
The problem is reported down the page. The problem seem to be related with hostapd.service

Can anyone can help me on fixing this?


1.0.0 alpha --> 1.2.0 alpha

Hello Roberto,
Does it have an important grind why you use version 1.0 or 1.2?

No work is being done on these versions.
The current version is 2.x
Download a new build and look forward to the new possibilities.
It is now completely rebuilt.
The documentation is much better.
Greetings Jürgen
sorry, openplotter 1.x is no longer maintained
