Hi Parkviewhave you blogged how you went about modifying the kernel to get over the 10 sensor kernel limit, or any notes on what to do?
No, this was just tested using OWFS to see if OWFS could see all the sensors on a breadboard at the end of a long bit of cat 5 E, it could until I doubled the length. So wiring was point to point, with my issues with the "live system" I have some "star wiring" because of wiring logistics (holes in wall), and accept the potential issues that may give (good way to learn about problems too).
In the 'live system' I am using BASH scripts to read the OWFS server. This is part of my rehabilitation into the world of 'real code cutting' something I have not done for about 30 years so I am a bit rusty. Next learning process is to convert it all to Python, to learn a new language, then dabble in Pi assembler, assembler (not IBM) being where I cut my teeth, programming-wise.
The development system has Chronodot (used in place of the fake clock) , MCP23017 I/O expander, I2C temp, barometric pressure, humidity, 1-wire bridge and a serial (not I2C) ADC as well as a couple of DS18B20s. I am also constructing a focus stack stepper motor driver for my other hobby (macro photography): I have the parts and a plan, so far. Lots of metalwork for that first! That bit I will blog about when it is nearer the testing and using phase: the pi is ideal for this task.
