FYI even when I do /overlay and make a 2GB swap file, the version of node does crash on some instances like installing "azure-iot-device-amqp" the nodejs run time has its own buffer that needs to be increased, though from the error they posted I dont think its this issue.
Another thing about npm installs is that in some cases you need python or some other dependency like git and npm builds the module on the onion, that takes a lot of resources. For my application I use 81% file storage and have 4.7mb left but I have these modules installed:
@peterh-peterh@peanut Here is the procedure on how to enable HTTPs for uhttpd and generate self-signed certificate.
From your command line issue the following commands:
opkg install px5g-standalone libustream-openssl
Restart the uhttpd service:
When you restart uhttpd service, it generates RSA private key and selfsigned certificate, here is the output that I've got after restarting uhttpd:
# /etc/init.d/uhttpd restart
4+0 records in
4+0 records out
Generating RSA private key, 2048 bit long modulus
Generating selfsigned certificate with subject 'C=ZZ,ST=Somewhere,L=Unknown,O=LEDEd1d8b179,CN=LEDE,' and validity 20180417162546-20200416162546
Now you can navigate to your browser and type: https://192.168.3.1 or https://omega-XXXX.local ( where XXXX are the last digits of your MAC address). Here is my screenshot:
The Omeage2 has no analog, limited PWM, non-deterministic timing.
Arduinos have a varied number of analog, digital and PWM pins, are deterministic as to how long things take to run, have 'bank' i/o support (which I've not seen implemented on any copy device), software serial, sleep mode, ...
It is not possible. In addition to the missing socket, there are other components missing, some are under the shield.
Care to elaborate? Not much should be required, so this is a bit surprising, unless it's an intentional disabling.
That said, USB-based storage could be another option - but it should be kept in mind that neither is robust in the face of unexpected shutdowns/reboots - one of the real strengths of these platforms over the computationally far more powerful and hardly more expensive raspberry pi, is that they don't depend on a fragile SD card. If you could boot a pi W from an SPI flash, it's questionable if there would be a market for MT7688 systems at all.
I dont have a printer, or print enough to warrant buying one, so I use Shapeways to print mine. Just upload the files and choose the material, they do the rest. Turn around time is pretty quick, too. https://www.shapeways.com
The amber LED on your Omega should turn on and then start blinking...
It’s possible that your Omega will behave a little differently: if the amber LED on your Omega turns on and remains on, wait for about a minute, and your Omega will have booted.
Most probably it will not blinking because your Omega's firmware is fairly old.
Connect your PC to the Omega’s WiFi Network
The Omega hosts it’s own WiFi network access point. Lets connect your computer to it. The WiFi network is named the same as your Omega and the default password is 12345678
The Setup Wizard
Open your favourite browser (Google Chrome is a good choice here and now) and navigate to... http://192.168.3.1
You have now arrived at the Setup Wizard...
I hope so. :slight_smile:
Thanks Setup Wizard, but my Omega's wifi never turns on.
Thanks very much everyone for the help. Really appreciate it. I am going to try and send this Omega back + The Power Station as there is clearly something wrong with the hardware somewhere. Surprised it was broken out the box. I hope they will be able to replace it.
I have tried contacting them via onion support (https://onion.freshdesk.com/support/tickets) and via the Indiegogo campaign where I bought it, for a refund. I have had no replies so far. I wonder if I will they will replace my dud Omega.
hi, looks interesting. I read that there is a new version coming but there was no date on that notice so my question is, do you have a new version coming or is this current board the new version you mentioned? thanks.
@Alessandro-Floris the link you're following is for the Omega 1, which is based on OpenWRT. The Omega 2 makes use of LEDE, which is a branch/fork of OpenWRT. Ergo, you need to use the LEDE toolchain. Searching this forum should reveal some light on the matter.
