Re: ipv4.fw not being read?

The file is in /root, here is the contents: #Custom FW script # Open port for gkrellmd found on 19150 iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 19150 -j ACCEPT This is running just fine on my 3B, but on my 3B+ I had to go in and add it to the FW file. I do not know why it is not pulling it in. Was try...

ipv4.fw not being read?

I am running my system on the 3B+, so I am using the code for that machine. It appears that the ipv4.fw file is not being read, I have a rule I added so I can get to gkrellmd, but it does not appear to pick it up. On my 3B board it works just fine. Has anyone noticed this? In order to get it to work...

Re: Nextion not reading card?

For some reason it would not take a card unless I had formatted it using Win10. I was doing the format using Linux and formatting to Fat32 using Gparted. but that would not work, so re-looked at the docs it said to format with Windows... OK, I will do so. Formatted the card, then I moved it over to ...

Re: Cannot Get Nextion to work under Pi-Star

I am having the same issue. I have checked all of the wiring TX>RX RX>TX, I just see the MMDVM logo on the screen but get no data on there. I see the comment about rolling back the MMDVM software to the previous rev level, have not done that, what is the trick? I see and have used the command to upd...

Re: Are all updates to the core OS done within PiStar?

Well, I got it in there, for some strange reason I had to do an update twice, but no upgrade, THEN it took my gkrellmd install request. Now I have to go and look at my other pi-star hotspot and see what mods I did to the fw to get it through. I think all I did was open port 19150. I usually install ...

Re: Are all updates to the core OS done within PiStar?

Somehow the list did not show that I had sent those, sorry, I resent them. I have gkrellmd running on a simplex hotspot no issues, I had to go in and fiddle with the FW a bit but it is running. Does great. I can do a gkrellm -s pi-star.local and get a nice little gkrellm screen. I may even try my ha...

I just got a hotspot going, and wanted to add some things I use also needed to add some stuff to get the nextion screen going.

Re: Nextion not reading card?

I had not seen that the first few times I tried it, the I found the place where it said to have them disconnected, I did so but still no joy. Perhaps I messed something up and need to reset the thing? I am going to try the one on a stand alone PI and see if that works, but It would not read the SD c...

Nextion not reading card?

Folks, I have taken a couple of SD cards and reformatted them to FAT32. Placed the MMDVMHost/Nextion_G4KLX/ tft file, the one for the screen I have, a NX3224K024, on the SD cards (a 2G and a 16G) insert card into screen and all I see is: Baud: 9600 SD Card Update..... Unless it takes and extra ordin...
