Can you please point me to that specific file. The only config file I know, which is /etc/cloudshell2-m*/cloudshell2-m*.conf
I couldn't find the option to only disable HDD temperature monitoring. Only option there is to turn off the LCD on schedule and allow the HDD to spin-down then LCD is off. And I would like to have LCD always running not showing HDD temp though because temperature monitoring doesn't let HDD to spin down

What version are you running? I could be mistaken as I've not used this in a good while.

@AreaScout wasn't it possible to disable temperature monitoring?

That's not only the temperature monitoring which prevents the HDD's to not spinn down, it's also reading the status of the RAID-Controller which prevents it, you can try to turn the LCD off via the config file and turn on the LCD backlight again with the wiringPi tool https://github.com/hardkernel/wiringPi I think you will find some examples in the forum to turn off and on the LCD with it, in that case the cs2 monitoring tool will not collect data from the RAID-Controller and therefore the HDD will spin down.

Maybe I will release a new version of the tool that does that with an extra switch inside the config file.

I had to reload my cloudshell-2 have Ubuntu Linux 22.04.3 running on it now.

When I went to install this I get a modprobe FATAL error:

Code: Select all

root@cloudshell-2:~# sudo modprobe fbtft_device name=hktft9340 busnum=1 rotate=270 speed=30000000
modprobe: FATAL: Module fbtft_device not found in directory /lib/modules/5.4.253-426
root@cloudshell-2:~#
Got 2 8TB WD hard drives in it and I don't think it's doing RAID I want it so the 2nd 8TB is a copy of the other one.

So if I could get this installed the LCD should show if it's in RAID or not.

Got it working I guess picked a old OS text that's why did not install.

I think I my of installed some things 2 times.

Because now it shows the display but about every 3 sec. It clears it and redraws it.

Is this the way it works of did I do something wrong?

It looks like the old display is working too and so it show the old one fast and then the new on show more.

So I guess I have to unload the old LCD one how to I do that?

Hi
Maybe someone managed to install the cloudshell2-monitoring tool in bookworm?
When starting, the display only flashes once.
I tried cloudshell-lcd but it does the same thing.

Hi, what kernel version are you using with bookworm?

    @sas4444

    If you meant that Armbian image with kernel 6.1.77 https://dl.armbian.com/odroidxu4/archiv ... mal.img.xz it works, I was blacklisting this kernel driver spi-s3c64xx, reboot and enabled the LCD backlight with
    echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/soc/12d30000.spi/spi_master/spi0/spi0.0/backlight/fb_hktft32/bl_power --> and it worked! You have to uninstall cloudshell-lcd in order to run cloudshell2-monitoring.

    So you have to write this to your /etc/rc.local or any other startup script to enable the backlight, dunno why it get's disabled exactly at this moment.

    Regards,
    Daniel
