So I've got the new display and I did:
apt-get install fbi
and I'm running:
/usr/bin/fbi -cachemem 0 -vt 1 -device /dev/fb0 -noverbose -autozoom -timeout 1 -list /root/frontdoor.lst
and frontdoor.lst contains:
http://<username>:<password>@frontdoorc ... on=640x480
(four times, fib caches otherwise, even though -cachemem tells it not to)
And it works for a while and then crashes. I've got it automatically restarting by adding:
* * * * * /usr/bin/pgrep fbi || /usr/bin/fbi -cachemem 0 -vt 1 -device /dev/fb0 -noverbose -autozoom -timeout 1 -list /root/frontdoor.lst
to crontab, but it still crashes and shows the text console for up to a minute before it restarts.
I've seen references to fim, which is an improved fbi, but it doesn't seem to be available for Jessie?
Any idea what I'm doing wrong or how to fix it? I'm essentially trying to display the output of my webcam on my display...
