"patch" is also a dependency. Please update PKGBUILD.

Works great om RPI2, 'armv7h' could be added to arch=

tuusjr commented on 2014-10-29 22:52

Systemd complains that telldus.service is marked as executable. I guess it would be cleaner to remove the executable flag from that file then.

SciBoy commented on 2014-08-02 12:04

The problem I had was also the parallel compile make-flag (-j(n)). Please do what devjoa said and update the PKGBUILD.

Package updated, thanks to guzzard's contribution.

I added 'armv7h' for use on a Beaglebone black. Seems to work. Tnx a million for your work!

devjoa commented on 2014-01-28 22:09

Hi, it would be great if you could add the following to the PKGBUILD, as I had problems with my -j5 make flag.

obiesmans commented on 2014-01-27 21:35

Just checked and it compiles properly on a newly installed system. is you system up to date ?
Could you post the build logs to a pastebin so I can have more information ?

SciBoy commented on 2014-01-27 08:21

I am unable to compile. I get:
make[2]: *** Ingen regel för att skapa målet ”client/”, som behövs av ”tdtool/tdtool”. Stannar.

Which is swedish for: 'No rule for creating target "client/", which is needed by "tdtool/tdtool". Stopping.'

Any ideas?

Oh, my bad, upstream uses 'plugdev' indeed. A previous maintainer of this package changed it to 'uucp' which is correct according to

I'll look into reloading udev rules as a post-install script.
Glad to see it's working for you, and thanks for the feedback on this package.

chrisq commented on 2014-01-12 16:12

Thanks, yes that helped.

FYI, the plugdev-group message comes from the telldusd binary, it is not referenced in any of my config files, so I think that too is from upstream.

My problem was partly caused by the udev not reloading its config after I installed the package, so ftdi_sio was loaded while tdadmin wasn't. I guess that would have been fixed by a reboot or udevadm control --reload-rules.

Thanks for all your help with this package :)

obiesmans commented on 2014-01-12 13:52

In short, telldusd should have sufficients rights to read/write on the /dev/whatever your tellstick is registered to.

This package ships with udev rules (/etc/udev/rules.d/05-tellstick.rules) that make sure you can control the stick with the 'uucp' (not 'plugdev') group ; this is an upstream choice.

Just in case, a few values from my own setup :
$ lsusb | grep -i telldus
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 1781:0c31 Multiple Vendors Telldus TellStick Duo
$ sudo lsof -p `pgrep telldusd` | grep -i '/dev'
telldusd 16248 root 9u CHR 189,3 0t0 68360 /dev/bus/usb/001/004
$ ls -lha /dev/bus/usb/001/004
crw-rw-r-- 1 root uucp 189, 3 Jan 12 14:29 /dev/bus/usb/001/004

I hope this helps.

chrisq commented on 2014-01-10 19:52

Also it seems like I lack permissions when running telldusd, what user= and group= values should I use in tellstick.conf with this package?
When setting group/user=root, running tdadmin manually and telldusd --nodaemon everything works.
Any ideas?

chrisq commented on 2014-01-10 18:45

Hi, it seems like it depends on the group plugdev, but it is not created, so the daemon fails. I could of course just add this group, but it should probably be the responsibility of the package right?

[root@puppeteer ~]# telldusd --nodaemon
telldusd daemon starting up
Group plugdev could not be found

obiesmans commented on 2014-01-09 20:56

Chriq: Should be fixed now. Good luck with your lights !

chrisq commented on 2014-01-08 23:52

obiesmans: Great, thank you for the quick reply.
I won't be living in darkness for long then :)

obiesmans commented on 2014-01-08 19:14

Chrisq> Fails me me too an a brand new install. Looks like it doesn't link with -pthreads. I am working on fixing this right now.

Build fails, have I overlooked anything obvious?

This did not compile against latest libftdi. I adopted the package an reverted to libftdi-compat for now.

kimrasmussen commented on 2013-11-19 14:21

The current PKGBUILD doesn't work as it doesn't define a package() function.

Here is a fixed version:

# Maintainer: Andreas Johansson <stdin dot se>
# Contributor: Peter Hultqvist <endnode dot se>
pkgdesc="TellStick application and library"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64' 'armv6h')
depends=('libftdi' 'confuse')
makedepends=('gcc' 'make' 'cmake')

cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
patch -p1 < ${srcdir}/arch-config.patch
patch -p1 < ${srcdir}/arch-sbin-fix.patch
patch -p1 < ${srcdir}/unistd-include.patch

cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
make DESTDIR="$pkgdir/" install
install -D -m0755 "${srcdir}/telldusd" "${pkgdir}/etc/rc.d/telldusd" || return 1
install -D -m0755 "${srcdir}/telldus.service" "${pkgdir}/etc/systemd/system/telldus.service" || return 1

Working fine on a raspberry pi now that armv6h is in the PKGBUILD. I used this systemd service:

/etc/systemd/system/telldus.service (enable using: systemctl enable telldus.service)

# Telldusd service unit file
Description=Telldus-core service telldusd

ExecStop=/bin/kill -HUP $MAINPID
