Re: update to instructions for running RaceCapture App on Raspi?

Though it looks like the autorun command is still the same:

https://wiki.autosportlabs.com/Raspberr ... Auto-start

Code: Select all

/opt/racecapture/boot_racecapture.sh pi
Where "pi" may need to be replaced with the username entered during the Raspberry Pi setup process.

update to instructions for running RaceCapture App on Raspi?

Looks like the Wiki instructions need updating:

https://wiki.autosportlabs.com/RaceCapt ... ch_the_app

Looks like this is no longer correct.

Code: Select all

/opt/racecapture/run_racecapture.sh
Looks like this was changed to:

Code: Select all

/opt/racecapture/run_racecapture_rpi.sh

error extracing .bz2 file for RasPi app

Thanks for the auto installation script! That' s huge step forward in user friendliness for the Raspberry Pi app! Unfortunately, there are some errors when extracting the .bz2 file. A command prompt log of the auto installation is attached. I also tried the manual installation and received the same ...

Re: RC Track intermittently freezes while driving

@brentp strange thing is, after it loses connection, it's usually restored with a power cycle of the RasPi dash and RC Track. Meaning, I don't touch the connection. This is why I suggested an improvement opportunity to periodically attempt connection re-initialization when the RasPi senses that UTC ...

Re: RC Track intermittently freezes while driving

Yes, when it freezes there is a flashing red light on the housing of the RC Track Mk2. This time when it happened I removed the mini USB from the RC Track and re-inserted it. That triggered the RasPi to re-initialize the connection and data resumed, for a short while until it happened again. Doesn't...

Re: RC Track intermittently freezes while driving

It has nothing to do with a laptop being connected. The dash values froze after idling the car for a few minutes in the garage, not even while driving. Just the RCTrack Mk2 and the RasPi dash. The Raspberry Pi app is fine, it's still responsive. The dash values freeze, as in the RC Track freezes. Sc...

Re: RC Track intermittently freezes while driving

No, it's not the wiring because if I don't touch anything, and just power cycle the unit then it's fine, for a little while. But if I reboot the RPi app the connection is not restored. This is why I think the problem is actually with the RC Track device itself. :(

RC Track intermittently freezes while driving

I don't know if I have a defective RC Track device, or if the whole USB connection to Raspberry Pi just isn't reliable. The display always seems to freeze on me while driving. Always seems to happen within about 40 to 50mins of driving. Logs attached, though I don't know how helpful they are since t...

Re: RPi double keyboard press when editing GPS coordinates

Did some experimenting, it does in fact appear to be caused by the [input] configuration. The Raspberry Pi Tips suggested this: [input] mouse = mouse mtdev_%(name)s = probesysfs,provider=mtdev hid_%(name)s = probesysfs,provider=hidinput #%(name)s = probesysfs,provider=hidinput The last line is comme...

RPi double keyboard press when editing GPS coordinates

When editing the GPS coordinates for autoX start/finish position in the Racetrack menu, there is a double button press from the kivy keyboard. This happens with the current Raspberry Pi 2.3.0 app, and happened with the previous version. So if I hit 5 on the virtual kivy keyboard 55 appears in the co...

Re: Raspberry Pi 2.2.1 app freezes

The situation where it was slow/unresponsive/froze was when editing the GPS coordinates for autoX start/finish points under the RaceTracks menu.

It seems a little better now with the 2.3.0 version.

Re: Raspberry Pi 2.2.1 app freezes

Maybe "freezes" isn't the best word. Could be unresponsive, or even slow. I've noticed a few times when trying to edit the autoX start/finish GPS positions that the app becomes unresponsive, and then comes back after a few minutes. No, I don't believe I'm the only one. A short search in th...

Is the log file the racecapture.log and racecapture.log_last under /home/pi ?

If so, attached are the log files.

Re: Raspberry Pi 2.2.1 app freezes

Where is the application log file saved? If I SSH into the Raspberry Pi, where do I find this file? Seems to be two different kinds of freezing going on. 1. dashboard freezes in the middle of driving. This happens intermittently at various intervals. 2. app freezes when entering Setup -> Race Tracks...

Raspberry Pi 2.2.1 app freezes

The Raspberry Pi 2.2.1 app rather frequently freezes when in dashboard mode. The dashboard stops updating until I exit the app which reboots it. This is using the latest Raspberry Pi 2.2.1 app, with Raspberry Pi 4 and official touchscreen, hard wired to the RC Track Mk 2 which is running latest 2.18...
