Re: Problem installing Liblo (./configure)

Having problems is part of learning, so you're OK. Check if you have liblo built/installed for python2 or python3

That might help you: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/739 ... on-modules

Re: Problem installing Liblo (./configure)

Did you install liblo after building it?
make install is the normal way (again autotools)

Run autogen.sh - it will create configure. Also read something about autotools - that'll help you in the future.

Re: Fresh installation of raspbian lite stuck on "Starting regenerate SSH host keys..."

Good few minutes (3-5?). I gave up - probably my SD card port in laptop that I used to write the card went crazy. I tried full desktop raspbian - another error. Then I couldn't even read another card, but pi was booting from it. Now I'm using external adapter and will report back if it works or not.

Fresh installation of raspbian lite stuck on "Starting regenerate SSH host keys..."

Hardware: pi zero w, fresh installation got stuck on:

Code: Select all

Starting regenerate SSH host keys...
Should I give it a few minutes or try to write the card again? Obviously I never checked SHA256 :mrgreen:

Edit: local file sha is OK, writing with dd went without errors. I'll try full desktop

Re: Help - Incorrect reading of magnetic encoder

Thanks! Now I understand what you've done: there is rotary_encoder.py python file (the code OP posted), providing "decoder" class that is redefined in the __main__ section to "decoder" variable. Also in the rotary_encoder.py you use import rotary_encoder! That's why I thought there is some external ...

Re: Help - Incorrect reading of magnetic encoder

:D Great! It's PEP8/F811 error. The code might work, I'm not saying it's a hard error.

What's under the import rotary_encoder? I can't find any code and it's not a standard library. And where you use that decoder class? There is some external rotary_encoder module?

Also, can you try to read the output diirectly and check that the encoder works as expected? Just print out the gpios and turn the encoder slowly

If you're sure the code is OK then the hardware is not OK - i can't help with that. You use the class decoder in some other part of the program? If you use that class in the code you posted, could you point me to that part? You have name redefinition from class to variable. No errors doesn't meant t...

Re: Help - Incorrect reading of magnetic encoder

I'd start with fixing the code: you have class decoder and variable decoder. On top of that you don't use that class? Try flake8, autopep8, pylint to check your code. You wrote the code?

That's close, but that's a rear light [1]. Also you can buy led projector with custom logo, but I don't think it's bright enough for daylight.

[SOLVED] Re: BLE devices with no names

I have code that scans for BLE devices and then tries to get services to determine if a device provides the service i need (heart rate or cycling speed/cadence). I do the initial scan in 4 seconds, but connecting to each device and checking services takes over 60 seconds (for 3 devices). I could try...

BLE devices with no names

I'm working on embedded project that uses BLE sensors. Afters scanning some of the BLE devices give nice names, but some are replying with BLE address only. My test sensors reply with human readable names and BLE device name is mandatory [1], so I guess I could safely ignore the devices without name...
