Re: PiKrellCam: motion vector detect + OSD web interface

Here is an example for a standard email relay configuration if you have an existing email address at the provider gmx.net for example. Let's say you have an email account at gmx.net like [email protected].net . Then your email provider gmx has a smtp server available to accept emails from you at mail.gmx.ne...

Do i need to require a registered domain name for my network in order to setup Postfix? [email protected].com... No. You have to configure postfix to just relay emails to your email provider. There are different kind of setups and you have to use the right one. You can also configure postfix to act ...

Re: PiKrellCam: motion vector detect + OSD web interface

When you configured ssmtp.conf with username and password you don't need the -au and -ap parameters. They override the config options. But the main problem i see is that ssmtp seems not to support attachments. So if you want to send an attachment with ssmtp you have to manually mime encode it and a...

Because you said you doesn't need the old logs i would go the first way and create the missing directory from some startup script. Maybe create a little helper script for starting nginx or pikrellcam which first creates the missing directories in /var/log. I created a script: #!/bin/bash # # Nginx ...

Re: PiKrellCam: motion vector detect + OSD web interface

The directory /var/log also exists on the sd-card and the ramdisk is mounted within it. When rebooting the whole content of the ramdisk is lost and after the startup the ramdisk is clean mounted in /var/log (because of the /etc/fstab entries) and all programs can write their logs into it. So i don'...

To use it over SSH you just have to transfer the transientlog.sh script and transientlog.service file with help of SCP to the Rpi. Then you can activate it like i described. Alternatively if you don't need the old logs after a reboot you can just add a tmpfs to /var/log and that's all. The only SSH...

Where is the log file written, the one you see when you press the "log" button at the bottom of the main screen? That might be in /tmp ?

Re: Under-voltage warnings

Hey guys,

I would like to clarify if this is correct, Im getting low voltage when connected to hdmi, as long as the power led is red solid, it would be fine and ignore the lightning bolt. If the red power led is blinking on and off, i should take action and replace the power supply.

Thankyou.

Re: Spent 2 Weeks getting NTP to update at Boot, Please Help

I got one more idea. Try putting a numerical server IP in ntp.conf instead of the host names for the pools. See if it is a DNS issue somewhere. The only other thing I can think of is after you do that, try running traceroute and see if the route to the server goes out the gateway that will actually...
