Hi, I am running OpenCPN version 5.6.0 on a Pi4.  This installs a very old version of Pypilot (0.16) which will not communicate with the Pypilot Plugin.  So I upgraded Pypilot to the latest version using the excellent Pypilot Workbook as a guide.  The installation all seemed to go OK.  After a reboot, I tried the Pypilot Plugin, but no connection.  I used systemctl to see if the pypilot service was running but it had stopped:
pi@openplotter:~ $ systemctl status pypilot

● pypilot.service - pypilot
   Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/pypilot.service; enabled; vendor preset: 
   Active: activating (auto-restart) (Result: exit-code) since Mon 2022-01-03 18
  Process: 16155 ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/pypilot (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE
 Main PID: 16155 (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

So I ran pypilot from the prompt and got several errors that I do not understand.  Can anyone please point me in the right direction?
Many thanks
David

It looks like this is caused by an oversight in a commit to the github that was made a few days ago. This can be expected to be solved soon, but in the meantime you might try checking out an older commit, e.g.
 
Code:
git checkout 07a3397

I cannot test this right now though, so it's a bit of a long shot for both me and you. I made an issue in github for this to be looked into.
Somehow I didn't check a file in... it should be fixed in git now, but it won't be able to autodiscover based on the error you posted. what do you get from:

python3 -m pip freeze| grep zeroconf
Hi, many thanks for your help.
I get: zeroconf==0.21.3
I did the Pypilot update again and version 0.33 now works fine!
Many thanks for your help.
I see, I have zeroconf==0.24.4

I will check the version in dependencies script, but at least pypilot will run without it now.
Still one small problem: the OpenCPN Pypilot Plugin works fine connected to 127.0.0.1, but the Watchdog plugin (I have installed the latest version 2.4.39.0) does not seem to connect and I just get a Pypilot No connection alarm.
Many thanks
David

The watchdog plugin that is provided in the OpenCPN's PlugIn Manager is an old version that does not connect to current pypilots. You can compile the watchdog plugin from github, but that watchdog gives an error in the opencpn log. For now it does not seem to be possible to use watchdog for pypilot.

All understood. Many thanks again for all your help.

The issue with compiling the watchdog plugin seems to have been resolved. Thx to Sean.
