Run an update
When it's completed reboot.

There's been some progress made last evening in the RW/RO scenario.

Problem getting ON7LDS Nextion Driver to run

Post by DJ5UW » Sat Mar 16, 2019 5:07 pm

I would need help with the installation of the Nextion driver via github on pistar 3.4.17 and a dual HS Hat Board.
Whatever I try, I cannot get the Nextion Driver process to run. It always shows "Nextion Driver not running" everything else seems to be ok.
How can I get the driver to run? Tried to reinstall/install the drivers from ON7LDS githhub repository, no luck.

The display itself works fine, connected to the modem Port on the HS Duplex Hat Board and also via USB but as soon as I try to activate the Nextion Driver, ist stops working.

Problem Installing ON7LDS Nextion Driver - Solved

Post by DJ5UW » Sun Mar 17, 2019 1:13 pm

Problem solved.
The Nextion Drivers Installer from ON7LDS is apparently incompatible with Pistar 3.4.17

Installed it on three different Pistar 4 RC3 installations without problems. Runs on a Dual HS Hat off of the modem pins on the board and on DVMEGA Boards using a USB - Serial Adapter. Shows CPU temp, CPU Load etc. Touchscreen is enabled and the display can reboot/restart the Hotspot directly without a PC just by pressing a virtual button
