Upgrade between 1.235 and 1.236 appears to fail?

edited October 2018 in Problems and Issues
I just went to check in on my Kiwi and it looks like its gotten itself into an upgrade/build loop... I've seen this repeating itself for the last hour and a half, attempting to build, starting up 1.235 again and then attempting to upgrade again.. any ideas of things I should check? I can ssh into the debian user, disk appears to have 2.4g available, web interface appears to be listening, but no response back:

root@kiwisdr:/var/log# nc localhost 8073
GET /
root@kiwisdr:/var/log#

Thanks

    I've only had one other complaint and a manual rebuild (I think) cured whatever the problem was.
    Hundreds of other Kiwis have updated just fine.

    I need more information. Do you know how to login to your Kiwi using ssh (Linux/Mac) or PuTTY (Windows)? If so, can you try these commands and let me know what error messages occur after the build starts:

    cdp
    mst (stops Kiwi server running in background)
    k (runs server in foreground)

    If this doesn't work type "up" to do a manual build and see if that clears it up.

  • This morning my kiwi returned the firefox "unable to connect" page. Before reading this thread I did a power cycle on the kiwi. The result was a kiwi screen that told me the browser was using a old cached version of a javascript. I cleared the cache and tried again. - Same result, but this time I clicked continue. I got some of the openweb RX screen, but no waterfall/receive. The stat button reported v235.

    I read this thread and tried the cdp, mst, then k commands. I didn't see any error type messages, but I was back to the "unable to connect message".

    I then issued the 'up' command, and after the rebuild I seem to be working on 236 now.

    I hope this helps. What is the difference between the k and up commands?

  • I have the same problem this morning. Kiwi server dead. Can SSH into Beagle but I have forgotten root password. Never mind, I fixed that one :) I was able to issue the mst command, and it responded correctly, but from beagle su I cannot issue k or up. The console tells me "bash: up: command not found" yet mst worked??? Note that k is not found either. But cdp did work...
    I will keep trying to revive it, but any suggestions would be welcome...
  • The tail of my /var/log/messages shows "action 17" going wrong. What is that?

  • Making headway -- turns up that "up" is a script which has to be executed "./up"
    Upgrade is now proceding, let's hope it finished OK this time :)

  • OK, all fixed now. Just a little linux work was needed, and I don't hack that every day....
  • Well, I wish I understood why this seems to be a problem for some people. Anyone with this problem willing to let me login and take a closer look? You'd either have to have a (temporary) NAT entry for ssh on your router pointed to the Kiwi. Or let me Teamview into your pc and then ssh/PuTTY to the Kiwi.
  • Okay, I think I see a problem here. Mike N8OOU and Trevmar, do you guys run WSPR auto-run on your Kiwis?
  • The one KIWI I did have auto run on also is the one of three that has the issue. You're welcome to teamview here if you need.

    Okay, I see the bug. It was actually introduced in v1.235 but doesn't get triggered until a restart (like when updating to v1.236)

    I'll fix it in today's update. But the issue now is that you'll either have to temporarily turn off WSPR auto-run or go through the manual update procedure one more time to get past this problem.
    ve6hfdVK3KHZ
  • Super sorry that I reported and then wasn't available for troubleshooting, thanks jks and trevmar, I'm back up and running. Thanks again! Kevin, N3LGA
  • @Kevin Not a problem at all. What led me straight to the bug was the report in the other thread: click the "kick" button on a WSPR auto-run connection and the server crashes.
    VK3KHZ
  • My kiwi has crashed while I am away from home and was running WSPR autorun so guess that was the problem.

    However I have no idea how to implement any of the fixes as I know nothing about Linux or the commands etc. mentioned as I am into radio not software so any suggestions as to what I need to do would be appreciated. I expect to be home tomorrow or Thursday at some point.

    Hi John,

    You need to connect to your KiWi by means of a terminal program such as PuTTY.

    https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/latest.html

    Setup the KiWi IP address in PuTTY and select Port 22.

    Select SSH and connect.

    When you connect you should get a terminal window apear and show a prompt from your KiWi to login. Use the user name "root"

    You should then get a command line cursor.

    type cdp and press enter

    then type up and press enter

    A whole load of stuff should be listed in the terminal window and after about 5 mins the command prompt will reappear.

    Leave it for a short while and the KiWi should have restarted, updated and be back to normal.

    Regards,

    Martin - G8JNJ
  • Worst case: if you have Teamviewer on a pc on the same network as your Kiwi I'd be happy to connect and fix it. You'd just have to start Teamviewer and email me the access id and password it gives you.
  • TV requires a port in his router to be open though doesn't it?

    Nope, that's the whole idea.

    I have 3 KiwiSDRs and all of them have this issue. SDR is dead on HTTP but SSH running no problem. Martin's instructions didn't work verbatim. I have extensive Linux knowledge, but this is the first time I've played around on the KiwiSDR so apologies if there was a-priori knowledge implied that I don't have.

    What worked for me

    • cd Beagle_SDR_GPS # move into the source folder
    • git pull # update the source files from repository
    • ./up # wait for a while for the compilation to take place
    • reboot # restart OS - when it comes back up, it works!
    Hope that helps,

  • I had the same issue, but the manual upgrade process mentioned worked for me.

    Cheers, Chris.

    The "git pull" is a little redundant. But it won't hurt anything. You must login to the Beagle as user "root" and not "debian". Contents of "up" file, in part:
    make stop
    git clean -fd
    git checkout .
    git pull -v
    make clean
    make
    make install
    make start

  • Hi Martin

    Many thanks for the information I will give is a try when I get home.

    Also thanks to John for the offer to fix it via Teamviewer. If I cannot get it sorted using the instructions from Martin i will be in touch.

    Regards

    John - G4HPW / W1JCT

    Success?

    Had a problem at first with Martin's cpd command returning a not recognised message but a bit of reading this thread identified it should be cdp..

    Once that was resolved all went as per instructions. [I edited his post to now say "cdp" -jks]

    Regards

    John - G4HPW / W1JCT

    Success here too, both SDR's ( 2/4 ) that failed upgrade were running 8CH and had WSPR autoruns.. all happy now thanks !
