Re: PI-star web service disconnects

4.1.5 has been release with this issue pre-fixed.

For anyone who is seeing the update loop, just opening any Admin page or the config page will auto-fix the loop issue and get you back in action.

Re: Update looping

There is a potential issue with updating pi-star where you can run into a never-ending update loop... The exciting problem here is that this is fixable, but only with manual intervention currently - because while I have fixed the update script, you wont get it if you are already looping.... the fol...

Re: update loop, update fails

I'm not sure that I can, its changed a lot over the last few days, so what point do I pick... The assume-unchanged is supp...

Re: update loop, update fails

I told you it could happen, you didn't believe me :P The issue is triggered specifically when user tries to fetch an update that includes both updated pistar-update and pistar-upnp.service files at same time. Users who updated progressively will not experience the problem as they likely updated eac...

Re: update loop, update fails

I was quite sure (initially) that this was not my error... but it appears a slice of humble pie is waiting for me... d'oh.

RELEASE Pi-Star 4.1.5

Upgrade to 4.1.5 has been released. This upgrade fixes a small issue in the pistar-upnp.service unit file so that when the service is stopped any port-forwards it created on your router get removed (like on shutdown / reboot). For most of us this will be insignificant, but for those who make use of ...
