Webiopi doesn't work on Raspberry Pi 2

Fri Feb 06, 2015 11:03 pm

I bought 3 Pi2 and try to replace one of my Pi B+ which is running webiopi but I got error with the Pi2:

It's using Ben Croston's code to access the GPIO pins through memory mapping with /dev/mem.

If you look in the install package at ../WebIOPi-0.7.0/python/native/gpio.c you should be able to patch that code to work with the new base address for the RPI2. Hint: #define BCM2708_PERI_BASE 0x20000000 needs to change.

This thread might also be relevant. http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewt ... 66#p686869

The author/maintainer of RPi.GPIO is Ben Croston [ @croston on these forums ], one of the contributors to that thread.

Thank you for the Hint. Sorry I am a newbie could you tell me what should I change to?

Compare gpio.c with:
https://sourceforge.net/p/raspberry-gpi ... format=raw
and apply the base address differences.

the gpio.c from the link is a lot different than my one. Which part should I change? or should I just copy everything?

Thanks

Looks like the setup() function and a couple of new #define lines at the top.

Has anyone got this to work with the raspberry pi 2? And if so would you be willing to upload the files some place? Be got a lovely Web controlled big track with Web Cam that thanks to the increased power of the pi 2 is now drivable over the Web so keen to get working on pi 2, but uses webiopi which don't work :-(

Why not contact the author of webiopi?
There is a Google groups support website. Gotta be quicker than going through this forum.

1.python/native/cpuinfo.c,change "BCM2708" to "BCM2709";
2.python/native/gpio.c, change "#define BCM2708_PERI_BASE 0x20000000" to "#define BCM2708_PERI_BASE 0x3f000000";
3.run setup.sh again.

@konglingboy, who posted the message preceding yours, appears to have done so and has posted clear details of the code changes needed.

Disclaimer: I haven't tried @konglingboy's "fix" ...

But it looks to me like it might simply change WEBIOPI from RPI(1) specific to RPI2 specific.
So that would mean I can't take that SD card and move it from a RPI2 to a RPI(1) ???
I think I won't use WEBIOPI for the moment.

It's now getting a bit bleak regarding remote GPIO control with web display:
* RASPCTL - discontinued.
* RASPCONTROL - disappeared.
* NETIO - still there, with smartphone control. The simplistic socket server they offered long back for RPI I found too fragile, but I think they might have a stronger example server now. I should try it again. I did buy the app, still on my phone & tablet.
* INSTRUCTABLES.COM php-javascript DIY simple port controller (http://www.instructables.com/id/Simple- ... ur-Raspbe/) - yea that might be a sampler, but it still works.

Maybe I've missed something obvious.

You can use the patch from the following URL to get WebIOPi-0.7.1 up and running on pi-2 :D

https://github.com/doublebind/raspi

Re: Webiopi doesn't work on Raspberry Pi 2

Oh dear,
The doublebind patch (post above) works in some cases. It is almost identically a re-work of the patch at
https://github.com/acrobotic/Ai_Demos_R ... demos/gpio, which similarly works in some cases.

Take a look at the patch they both offer for board version detection (in file ...../python/native/cpuinfo.c):

Code: Select all

int get_rpi_revision(void)
{
   char revision[1024] = {'\0'};
   
   if (get_cpuinfo_revision(revision) == NULL)
      return -1;
      
   if ((strcmp(revision, "0002") == 0) ||
       (strcmp(revision, "1000002") == 0 ) ||
       (strcmp(revision, "0003") == 0) ||
       (strcmp(revision, "1000003") == 0 ))
      return 1;
   else if ((strcmp(revision, "0004") == 0) ||
            (strcmp(revision, "1000004") == 0 ) ||
            (strcmp(revision, "0005") == 0) ||
            (strcmp(revision, "1000005") == 0 ) ||
            (strcmp(revision, "0006") == 0) ||
            (strcmp(revision, "1000006") == 0 ))
      return 2;
   else if ((strcmp(revision, "a01041") == 0) ||
            (strcmp(revision, "a21041") == 0 ))
      return 3;
   else // assume rev 4
      return 4;
}
Well guess what? My 4 RPi boards have revision numbers 0002, 000e, 000f, a21041. The middle 2 numbers are not recognised by the patched code above.


http://elinux.org/RPi_HardwareHistory indicates many more board versions. Maybe even that wiki listing is not up to date? But can I offer the following roughed-up code for the board revision function, code that is at least in closer accord with the wiki.

Code: Select all

int get_rpi_revision(void)
{
   char revision[1024] = {'\0'};
   
   if (get_cpuinfo_revision(revision) == NULL)
      return -1;
      
   if ((strcmp(revision, "0002") == 0) ||
       (strcmp(revision, "1000002") == 0 ) ||
       (strcmp(revision, "0003") == 0) ||
       (strcmp(revision, "1000003") == 0 ))
      return 1;
   else if ((strcmp(revision, "a01041") == 0) ||
            (strcmp(revision, "a21041") == 0 ) ||
            (strcmp(revision, "0012") == 0 ) ||
            (strcmp(revision, "0013") == 0 ))
      return 3;  // A+  B+  RPI2
   else 
      return 2; // all the 0004 - 000f
}
Are we seeing a sad fade-away on a useful project? I can't even think about the ambitions of WebIOPi re Weaved or REST etc, if the core functionality remains unsupported and broken.

And for anyone who wants, here is my own patched up 0.7.1 -- not official, not guaranteed -- that I have used for a local hobby class. It builds on those other sources/ideas above.

http://brian2012class.nfshost.com/where-are-we/ Check under entry for 15 August. It identifies as 0.7.1.p
All of my class used it successfully on a variety of Pi versions.

Hello blavery,

So what happened with the link it seems dead ? Or I am having trouble opening it I am not sure, anyway guys, any idea if there is any similar web interface like this one which is working on the pi2+ ?

Hello from Croatia...

First, I must point out that I'm new to programming and RPi
I'm having problems with Webiopi custom web pages on RPi2 model B.
When i'm using default demo web page, everything is working OK.

If I try to use custom web page (for example, I tried to use this http://webiopi.trouch.com/JAVASCRIPT.html ), all buttons are gray and not functioning. I've verified that with demo page all buttons are fully functional.

I've done all patches available thru this forum, and tried with simple python script ( http://raspi.tv/2013/how-to-use-interru ... d-rpi-gpio ) whitch works as expected.

Can someone at least point me in right direction where to look?
