Issues after attemp to install open z-wave

#1

Hi,

I was trying to install open zwave, but after that, nothing workins anymore.
I followed these instructions https://github.com/OpenZWave/node-openzwave-shared/blob/master/README-raspbian.md (and I did the easy way )
Every node I need in my configuration is not working anymore.

I did delete the flows_rasperrypi_cred.json and flows_raspberrypi.jsion file. But I did this in the past succesfull.

your settings file. Node-RED will then re-encrypt your credentials

Sow, how can I re-install everything, or remove the whole node-red and restart rom skratch?

It's the second time I have issues with this open zwave node. It just seems impossible (for me) to install everything nice at once.

Currently I (would like to ) use:

  • node-red-contrib-homekit-bridged (issue at the moment)
  • node-red-contrib-alexa-home-skill (works)
  • node-red-contrib-harmony (Issue)
  • node-red-contrib-modbus (issue)
  • node-red-contrib-openzwave (issue)
  • node-red-contrib-ringdoorbell (issue)
  • node-red-node-serialport (issue, I think this is used by modbus)

Is there maybe some incompability?

I'm not a Linux expert at all, I just follow the commands that I find to install nodes.
For the zwave I'm also doing the copy-paste trick without really understanding what's it all about.

In the past my solution was to just start with a new RaspberryPi image. But I can't keep doing this for every fault I get. :frowning:

Hopefully this is a quick fix :slight_smile:

Hi - you are using too old a version of node.js which you need to upgrade.

The best option is to use our upgrade script to get the latest node.js and node-red installed - see https://nodered.org/docs/hardware/raspberrypi for details.

Hi,

I actually think it's up-to-date?

But it does say it did not updated openzwave.
It's 'left behind' in straight translation

pi@raspberrypi:~/.node-red $ sudo apt-get upgrade
Pakketlijsten worden ingelezen... Klaar
Boom van vereisten wordt opgebouwd
De statusinformatie wordt gelezen... Klaar
Opwaardering wordt doorgerekend... Klaar
De volgende pakketten zijn achtergehouden:
> openzwave
0 opgewaardeerd, 0 nieuw geïnstalleerd, 0 te verwijderen en 1 niet opgewaardeerd.

I'll see again tomorrow :frowning:

No, it isn't update to date. We strongly recommend you use our update script rather than apt-get.

I will just start a new topic for the Zwave part, as I'm back on the begin with this issue
