Python Script Causes Crash, Restart [Resolved]



  • Greetings fellow Onioneers!

    I've been picking up Python since the ash shell sleep function can't sleep for less than a second and I thought it would be more fun to learn a new language than to relearn one I learned a lifetime ago. That's not to say I'm new to coding. I'm no expert, but I've dabbled for some time.

    My issue is coming from a (seemingly) simple script I wrote for Python to play with what I thought would be some simple tasks to eventually build up to a larger project I have in mind a proof of concept if you will.

    The script it meant to work as follows:

    Script starts 
    Pin 0 is set to out, pins 2 and 3 are set to in 
    Pin 0 is set high to turn on an LED 
    The script loops until the button is pressed, polling pin 2 every .1 second to see if the button has been pressed 
    On press, the pin 0 goes low, the script sleeps for 2 seconds 
    Script loops until pin 3 reads high, where the script simply stops.
    

    This script doesn't contain anything I haven't used previously in smaller (5-10 line) scripts, but it causes my Omega2 to reboot when run! Is there something in my script in particular that is causing this? I can't read the dump that it gave before restarting, so any direction would be helpful to me.

    I am running firmware version 0.1.6 b137 as last I checked, the latest version contained an error that made the Omega2 throw errors when trying to use gpioctl or fast-gpio. If this has changed, let me know!

    Here's the code as it was run:

    import os
    import sys
    import time
    import subprocess
    
    lampstate = "off"
    lamppin = "0"
    
    buttonpin = "2"
    stoppin = "3"
    loopstate = "start"
    #loopstate = "stop" #for debugging
    
    sleeper = "0.1"
    
    readpin = "fast-gpio read "
    setpin = "gpioctl dirout-"
    high = "high "
    low = "low "
    
    os.system("gpioctl dirin " + buttonpin)
    os.system("gpioctl dirout " + lamppin)
    
    #sys.exit()
    #print("exit did not work")
    while(loopstate != "stop"):
            button2 = subprocess.check_output(readpin + stoppin)
            if(button2 == "> Read GPIO" + stoppin + ": 0"):
                    loopstate = "stop"
            else:
                    button1 = subprocess.check_output(readpin + buttonpin)
                    if(button1 == "> Read GPIO" + buttonpin + ": 1" and lampstate == "on" ):
                            os.system(setpin + low + lamppin)
                            lampstate = "off"
                            time.sleep(2)
                    elif(lampstate == "on"):
                            time.sleep(sleeper)
                    else:
                            os.system(setpin + high + lamppin)
    
    
    

    And here's the dump:

  • For anyone having the same issue, I believe I solved the issue after some tweaking.

    The issue seems to be that I wasn't setting pin 3 to be input before trying to read from it.

    Adding the line os.system("gpioctl dirin 3") solved the crashing issue. Alternatively you could replace gpioctl dirin 3 with fast-gpio set-input 3.

    I'm a little concerned that the error wasn't handled better. I don't know if that fault is on Python or my Omega2, though.

    Anyways, happy coding everyone!
