LCDproc-dev and tyan lcd bug



  • Trying to re-use an old Tyan GS14 server. Server has an LCD panel which was used on a handful of Tyan servers. It's based on the hd44780 and connected to com2 on the box. Couldn't get it to work via any fiddling with the config page. Tried hd44780 and tyan drivers, service never started. Eventually realized that if I selected the 'tyan' driver, the system deleted any existing /usr/local/etc/LCDd.conf and didn't create a new one. Tested on fresh installs of 2.0.3-pre and 2.1beta.
    Workaround is to select hd44780 and edit the config manually:

    
    [server]
    DriverPath=/usr/local/lib/lcdproc/
    Driver=tyan
    Bind=127.0.0.1
    Port=13666
    ReportLevel=0
    ReportToSyslog=no
    User=nobody
    Foreground=no
    ServerScreen=no
    Hello="PFSENSE FIREWALL"
    Hello=" D.T.K - L.A.M.F"
    GoodBye=" System Halting "
    GoodBye=" or LCDd stopped"
    WaitTime=5
    ToggleRotateKey=Enter
    PrevScreenKey=Left
    NextScreenKey=Right
    ScrollUpKey=Up
    ScrollDownKey=Down
    [menu]
    MenuKey=Escape
    EnterKey=Enter
    UpKey=Up
    DownKey=Down
    [tyan]
    driverpath=/usr/local/lib/lcdproc/
    Speed=0
    Size=16x2
    Device=/dev/cuau1
