i dont get any clues, where could i find the "fault" ?


  • i picked the RASPBIAN JESSIE WITH PIXEL image and the first thing i did was using raspi-config to make it startup to command line with autologin

    then i setup wifi and disconnected the wired network

    then i did a full update and downloaded repetier server

  • You could try starting it as root from commandline and hopefully get a hint where it crashes

    sudo /usr/local/Repetier-Server/bin/RepetierServer -c /usr/local/Repetier-Server/etc/RepetierServer.xml

    also check serverlog in /var/lib/Repetier-Server/logs

    if it contains any information. If it does not succeed try with strace

    sudo strace /usr/local/Repetier-Server/bin/RepetierServer -c /usr/local/Repetier-Server/etc/RepetierServer.xml

    that writes a lot and the end where it crashes shows hopefully it tried to include some library not existent or something like that.
  • sudo /usr/local/Repetier-Server/bin/RepetierServer -c /usr/local/Repetier-Server/etc/RepetierServer.xml

    no errors

    sudo nano /var/lib/Repetier-Server/logs

    says new file so it makes me think it does not start

    sudo strace /usr/local/Repetier-Server/bin/RepetierServer -c /usr/local/Repetier-Server/etc/RepetierServer.xml

    output from that here, and it did only confuse me:

  • armel is at least compiled on a pi. Armhf normally owrks on Pi 2 or newer, but not on Pi 1. So yes, would be a test.
  • that worked... its a pi 2 so hmm... oh well

    i got it down to :

    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo update-rc.d RepetierServer defaults
    update-rc.d: error: initscript does not exist: /etc/init.d/RepetierServer

    have used this guide as a "helper".... i guess i have to reboot and manual start it each time?
  • well after reboot and starting the service it does not work so well.

    will check if service is running at all

    changed it to port 80 so that i did not have to add the port number all the time
  • oh well it works on port 3344

    guess i can learn to live with that
