I'm actually trying to see what the difference is between manual and dhcp, I've never had issues with switching between networks and I wonder if that is why, cause maybe I'm doing it a bit different than everyone else
I had set mine up before it was in the manual for my Pi, and I just used the same basic setup for the edison

Can anyone help me understand how to deal with the /dev/spidev5.1 already in use error? We've upgraded now to dev, which adds the @reboot line to cron. Do we still need to manually reboot when this error crops up, or will the system correct itself eventually?
Dana Lewis

@thebookins no, that should resolve it automatically for you
Paul Dickens
@thebookins
Mar 06 2017 02:38
goody @danamlewis, but I'm getting impatient :smile: how long should I wait? is it looking for a certain number of spidev5.1 errors? Would it be complicated by the fact that I'm trying running pump-loop at 3 min intervals, as per the earlier discussion?
Paul Dickens
@thebookins
Mar 06 2017 02:51
actually, not sure if I have latest commit from https://github.com/openaps/oref0/pull/409/ with the line (crontab -l; crontab -l | grep -q "reboot spidev error" || echo "*/10 * * * * if (tail -n 50 /var/log/openaps/pump-loop.log | grep "/dev/spidev5.1 already in use"); then reboot; fi") | crontab -
I'll have a check tonight
Scorponok
@Scorponok
Mar 06 2017 03:19
@thebookins That line should run every 10 minutes, and reboot if it finds the "spidev5.1" error message. So the most you'd have to wait would be 10 minutes, plus the time after the reboot for the edison to mmtune to the right frequency
Scott Leibrand
@scottleibrand
Mar 06 2017 03:26

in cron it's just * * * * * oref0-radio-reboot

What does the check for /run/nologin do? I'm not familiar with that
Scott Leibrand
@scottleibrand
Mar 06 2017 03:32
when you schedule a reboot in the future (as opposed to "now"), Debian creates that file to prevent any new users from logging in right before it reboots
so I'm using that as a "do we have a reboot scheduled" check
Scorponok
@Scorponok
Mar 06 2017 03:38
Ah, nice
Isn't there a risk with that code that the edison reboots, checks the log file tail, and finds the "spidev5.1 error" error message still there (if the pump loop hasn't had a chance to run for some reason), causing it to reboot again?
Paul Dickens

Hello all, I had the Edison up and running on the home WiFi. I had Bluetooth tethering setup (but not tested). the rig left home and BT didn't work, no surprise. However, upon returning home it didn't pick up WiFi. I tried re-running oref0 scripts, and got the error below: File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/mmeowlink/vendors/serial_rf_spy.py", line 121, in sync
raise CommsException("Could not get subg_rfspy state or version. Have you got the right port/device and radio_type?")

@JELCRAWFORD
Mar 06 2017 06:36
@scottleibrand has there ever been any consideration for an optional setting that is a hard cut off to tempbasal zero if BG is below 4 (72)? We had another situation yesterday where OpenAPS started regular basal settings (no longer temped out at zero) when DS was still below 4. There was COB and yes a trend upward was projected. We'd rather no insulin delivery until 4.0 - It seems it is most likely to be a problem after supper meals and as DS is getting into bed and then the low delays bedtime routines while we wait for return to range. While I'm sure he'd have come up with the regular basal as OpenAPS had selected, it would have taken longer and we'd rather have had a small spike and known he was above low in that situation. @jmcrawford and I have looked at the code and thought about how that could be modified - what are your thoughts about this?

@diabetic_dude_twitter comment out that first line, don't think it needs to be there. does it connect if you do a reboot or cycle power?
and did you run oref0-setup yet? cause that adds some stuff in the cron that will help with that type of issue.
I believe most of the switching between networks has been fixed for most people
JELCRAWFORD
@JELCRAWFORD
Mar 06 2017 14:53
@zekeat09 Do you have AMA turned on? If yes, as I understand it, if OpenAPS sees a significant rise in BG, it assumes unannounced COB and you can see a change from zero to some balance in COB that it has assumed - yes this would also impact other assumptions. I'm sure @scottleibrand can confirm and explain more completely.
zekeat09
@zekeat09

@JELCRAWFORD You are right. My AMA was turned on. I treated my boy Hypo (2hr ago) without register carbs (15g) in NS. The BG was raised due to the carbs.

ok thanks @Bender1061 I have not run oref-setup yet, got too tired had to sleep was going to do that when I got in, so tested the wifi, verified it again at home, all was good, left the edison on and brought it to work still running. Then tried to connect to the phone at work and it was a no go, rebooted and tried again, nothing good, removed everything in my wpa_supplicant.conf but the iphone section and it still did not work.
will comment out the first line at lunch see what it does then try from home again since it was working last night run oref0 and hopefully let the script do all the work (as it was intended)

Mar 06 2017 17:42
@mgranberry yes, there is a g4-raw option in oref0-setup (which will be renamed to just g4 at some point)
@diabetic_dude_twitter you probably have an SSID mismatch with your phone: Apple likes to put a curly apostrophe (’) into the SSID instead of a straight one ('), so you're best off changing your phone's SSID do not include the apostrophe at all. and if you commented out the first line, probably uncomment that again.

Does it result in any problems in entries the database (I'm assuming you have a full rig swap, including your BG data collection into NS)? @danamlewis
Scott Leibrand
@scottleibrand
Mar 06 2017 21:04
we run 6 rigs simultaneously. As long as they're all powered on at midnight (presumably charging) they'll all autotune using the same data, and therefore get into / keep in sync
we only have one rig upload BG data to NS at a time, and we usually plug in the receiver that is paired to the Share app, so that the data from the Share bridge in NS is the same as the data being uploaded (with raw isig values) from the rig
but all rigs upload treatments and devicestatus data simultaneously to NS, and don't interfere with each other. the treatments upload has a check for what is already present, and doesn't upload duplicates. the devicestatus collection gets rather large, but NS is designed to show devicestatus from whichever rigs reported in most recently
JELCRAWFORD
@JELCRAWFORD
Mar 06 2017 21:09
Ahh... we are using xdrip and find ourselves constantly prompting 'Where's your rig" when at home and he strips down from his gear leaving the pieces together but not necessarily within range of his dex/pump. This refrain is in response to no data or No pancreas or both. I thought maybe plugging in the extra rig elsewhere would extend range, but we'd still have the BG data issues. I guess he could worry less about moving the OpenAPS bit around, but he'd still have to move around the other pieces. He does have a lot of gear - phone, OpenAPS, Tictac for xdrip. Oh well - working on getting xdrip plus OpenAPS in a single case... that'll help. Thx!
Scott Leibrand
@scottleibrand
Mar 06 2017 21:10
I know a few people have set up multiple wixels around the house to solve the BG coverage issues. You could also do something similar with multiple Dexcom receivers plugged into multiple rigs
JELCRAWFORD
@JELCRAWFORD
Mar 06 2017 21:11
wixels are cheaper :) I promised myself that I'd get to doing a full build myself - then we'll have an full extra set, assuming success that is :)
Scott Leibrand
@scottleibrand
Mar 06 2017 21:11
if the receivers aren't calibrated identically you'll see multiple dots on NS, but oref0 handles that fine as long as they're reasonably close. (If they're calibrated way differently, then when one of them starts or stops uploading, it looks like a change in BG trend, so you'll get artificially high or low temps for a few minutes)
JELCRAWFORD
@JELCRAWFORD
Mar 06 2017 21:12
same issue with wixels I assume?
Scott Leibrand
@scottleibrand
Mar 06 2017 21:12
I think they can download calibration data from NS to help prevent that, but I've never used them, so not sure

@Bender1061 "comment out that first line, don't think it needs to be there." it doesn't exactly need to be there in this case, but it doesn't interfere with anything in any way either, it's so that you can use wpa_cli to manage/debug your wireless connection.
Scott Leibrand
@scottleibrand
Mar 06 2017 21:27
ah, is that what it's for? good to know. :)
Arsenijs
@CRImier
Mar 06 2017 21:30
Yeah, I suggest you check out wpa_cli - it also shows connection errors what wpa_supplicant prints (which we don't see because it runs as a daemon, though they probably are in a logfile somewhere). So, say, you're connected over UART/Ethernet - you can actually run wpa_cli, see the available networks, tweak your network settings, disable and enable networks, instead of changing the config, blindly restarting things and hoping for the best. The best part about it is that it also allows network management to be done programmatically =)
For example, wpa_cli scan_results is a good thing for debugging "my network doesn't connect" - it shows the SSIDs available, as well as network flags (open network/wpa/wpa2/other enc/wps) (though doesn't show passwords). If in the future somebody has a "doesn't connect", you can say "Send the output of wpa_cli scan_results && wpa_cli list_networks", so you can compare available networks versus those listed in the config file.
Scott Leibrand
@scottleibrand
Mar 06 2017 21:35
cool. we should have someone figure out how to do all the initial setup stuff with wpa_cli and PR in an update to simplify the docs. :)

You don't actually need wpa_cli for the setup part (it won't make mistakes in the config, though). It's much better for debugging.
Scott Leibrand
@scottleibrand
Mar 06 2017 21:41
yeah, I think it'd be a lot better for actually confirming things are working as you go along, and not making syntax errors that are hard to debug
Arsenijs
@CRImier
Mar 06 2017 21:45
Hmm, are wpa_supplicant config syntax errors a significant part of problems that people encounter when setting things up? See, wpa_cli method has its problems too. If we aim for usability, we could make a short script that'd consruct wpa_supplicant.conf, being given SSIDs and passwords, what do you think?

@scottleibrand Anything I can check why my OpenAPS status no longer works. I setup a new rig today and it worked the first time through the loop and now it is just reporting that it is "Waiting" Any ideas what else I can check?

what do your logs say?

logs are all good. No errors at all. The status is being generated and the predictive values are in the JSON.
so both rigs I have are doing the same thing. It is setting temp basals but I am just not getting any status in NS
it stopped working in the middle of the night last night

I got the new rig setup an hour ago.. Reported once and that was it. :(

one thing I did notice is that battery is no longer showing up in my pill with the dev branch. Not sure if that is a clue. Here is the NS loop results.
Starting ns-loop at Mon Mar 6 17:36:03 EST 2017:

Refreshed temptargets and meal-carbs

ok so I clicked the "Clean Mongo status database" and it seems to have fixed it. who knows... maybe this will help someone else in the future.

Following mac instructions. Once I got to enter usb serial entry (my UART serial is 8 numbers/letters), I am prompted to enter my computer pw, but the screen stays blank. I cannot type anything else into it.

@baughaw sorry, was on a call. we’re really hoping someone can help dig in more when we see one of those so we can better determine the root cause and figure out a better solution than blowing out databases. So for anyone else who sees one of those - it would be beneficial to do deeper digging (especially if your rig is looping fine) so we can figure it out.

@CRImier How do you get the script onto the Edison before the network is set up, unless it's included in the jubilinux image? I suppose you could create a file and copy/paste the script in via UART...

@jmcrawford This is why I'm asking to see if there's such a possibility - I don't yet fully understand the process =) You can copy-paste a script and launch it with just one command, yes. It's going to be quite a long command, though =)

@flutelynne_twitter why are you entering a serial number?

I get this response: I am trying to flash an edison/explorer board

Nope, the line doesn't seem correct.

@flutelynne_twitter the * will automatically expand to the appropriate tty (assuming there's only one that matches)

Should I just be using sudo screen /dev/tty.usbserial-* 115200
Scott Leibrand
@scottleibrand
Mar 06 2017 23:23
yeah, that should work
the 115200 is definitely required

Question to @scottleibrand - don't you need to plug in both cables when flashing an Edison board (no mater the platform, be it Mac, RPi or Windows)?
Scott Leibrand
@scottleibrand
Mar 06 2017 23:33
yes, it's best to plug in both cables before you start. you can do them one at a time if you know what you're doing, but I don't recommend it.
Arsenijs
@CRImier
Mar 06 2017 23:39
So, @flutelynne_twitter - you do have both cables plugged in?
Lynne Butts

Oh yes. I had to reset SMC, find the right combination of USBs. It's getting there now.

I am waiting for the flash all to finish. Watching the clock. Earlier this afternoon it froze at this point.
