Lcdproc hd44780 rs-232 error
SO I am trying to get a GFC1602A: http://www.gifar.com.tw/Model.aspx?ModelNo=GFC1602A to work with pfsense 2.0.1, the lcdproc pkg is 0.5.5, I keep getting this error:
Aug 28 15:18:40 php: lcdproc: Stopping service: no com port selected
Aug 28 15:18:40 php: lcdproc: The chosen lcdproc driver is not a valid choice
When I check the services lcdproc shows stopeed, I try to restart it and the same error shows in the system logs, I have tried other drivers that are compatible with ST7060U, and I get the same error.
Any help will be great
my current lcdproc server tab settings are:
enable LCDproc: check
Com Port: Serial Com port 2 (/dev/cua1)
display size: 2 rows 16 colums
refresh frequency: (5 seconds, 1 second)
have you tried an alternative port for COM2 (dev/cuau1)? Also, have you tried to lower the port speed?
Both options are available on the lcdproc-dev package.
I installed the beta LCDproc pkg, and my service started! ;), these are the settings I have now,
which is great but I still see no activity on the lcd itself
when the service started it created this .conf file :
GoodBye="Thanks for using"
GoodBye=" pfSense "
here is what my logs say about the LCD:
I've tried changing port speeds, content, but no luck…any clues ?
