Re: Home Assistant hangs after login at pi@rasspbian:~$

That is the one i used. I loaded the image and it hung at the pi@rassbian~$. There was no desktop and what I totally don't get is why when I typed "ls" it returned the prompt at pi@rassbian~$ but gave no file list.
I installed manually on another system and it runs.
Just don't get it.

I don't need help with the conversion math. I need help isolating the outputs into a temp storage register that I can then do the math on. As I said in the post.
As far as the duplication, I thought it was in the wrong forum heading since it was a coding question.
