Installing on laptop



  • @user2684

    Working on the raspi as hotspot leads to using the web browser directly on the raspi. This leads to performance issues.

    Instead of investing in better single board stuff I like to install eGeoffrey on my laptop running Linux Mint.

    Installation is done but when starting eGeoffrey I get the error message:

    ellard@machinist:~/egeoffrey$ sudo egeoffrey-cli start

    Your advice please

    The performance issue of the raspi was related to allocation of to little memory to the GPU.

    For the time being I am trying to bring the hotspot alive on the raspi.



  • The error message is saying port 1883 is already in use so cannot start, maybe you are already running something else on that port?

    Yes that is the reason.
    First I will explore the raspi track. If that succeeds it is fine with me. Otherwise I have to revert to the laptop.

    What I am aiming for is a as minimalistic set-up as possible. On a Raspi eGeoffrey with a hotspot. The sensor/actuator modules on ESP8266 in a Esp8266MQTT mesh network.

    It should be possible to get it working.

    Until now at some point in time it is not possible to get access with a browser via the hotspot after logging in into the hotspot.
    This issue I have to explore to find out what causes this.

    If it turns that there is no other way than accessing eGeoffrey via a browser on the machine running the hotspot and eGeoffrey then I will switch to the laptop track.
