Web Service problem on Phidgets Control Panel

Postby black_unicorn » Thu Sep 19, 2013 5:40 am

Good day:

Yesterday, I upgraded the version of Phidgets my PC with Windows 7, installing the library 2.1.8.20130820.

I have an SBC 2 Device, Board 0, Version 200, and yesterday also completely upgraded all packages. It was like 9 months since I updated it.

When I tried to connect by SBC2 Web Services from the Windows Phidgets Control Panel, the log returns me a message saying something about: missmatch, incorrect or unsupported version, can not remember.

Do I need to update the firmware as well? In "yes" case. What are the steps to follow?

I just download the last SBC2 firmware versión, and I am unable to use Linux.

Thanks very much for the help, one more time.

When you upgrade the packages it may open up new packages that need upgrading. Go back and check again that all of the packages are fully upgraded to make sure you have the newest webservice version on the SBC.

Thanks, but I have reviewed the operation and in the package list, the message says, they are all updated.

Something must be broken in the updater because it's not the latest phidget21. Maybe you can ssh in and run 'apt-get update' and 'apt-get dist-upgrade' and see if there are any errors?

I'm try this:

Factory Reset

This restores the kernel and root filesystem from backup, overwriting any changes that may have been made and completely wiping the system to the state that it got shipped in. (You can save your files and installed program list first, as described here.) This can be enacted one of two ways.

Use the reset button:
Enter the recovery mode by holding down the reset button for 20+ seconds as above (until fast flashing)
Wait for a full boot (i.e. you can see it on the Phidget Control Panel, or can SSH with username and password as root)
Hold down the reset button again, but this time for only 10 seconds (until slow flashing)
Wait for the SBC to fully reset and reboot (at least three minutes) - the LED will turn off and on again when this occurs

Next

1. Rename the firmware file from phidgetsbc2_1.0.1.20120106.bin to phidgetsbc2-1.0.1.20120106.bin - the recovery system expects a dash not an underscore.
2. Put the file on a USB flash drive and plug it in.
3. Reboot into the recovery system: 'System->Backup & Restore->Upgrade / Factory Reset'

But after a while the green and red led waits statics.

The question now, is.... what about

These are hardware / very low level firmware changes that can't be applied by you. You will never change your board revision.

I had the very same problem. I took the advice of going in through SSH (make sure your SSH server is turned on on the SBC through the Web configuration.)

I had to switch to su of course, and then tried....

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade


I learned that phidgetswebservice was being held back.

Some new dependencies I wondered?

So I tried

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade


That seemed to do the trick.
