Seven year old LMS! deffo time for an update
I would advise against the version 8 as many of the plugins might not work.
If you have the space on the stick then the LMS should install over the top.
If really tight for space then
Hi other happy jogglers,
Thanks for your response. Ideally I would like to keep LMS running on the O2 Joggler.
Yes indeed, high time to update!!!
I need to be clearer on what I'm looking for.
Openframe 3.03 essentially is a version of Debian linux. (I hope that is correct.)
As I'm not a Linux pro, I'm basically looking for a step by step set of Linux commands to move from LMS 7.8 to LMS 7.9.3 or higher.
As a result of such upgrade LMS would automatically feature the material skin.
For more details see some background information below in this message.
I'm running 2 instances of LMS at 2 different spots (these are entirely independent from eachother). Each have one O2 joggler client in the install base.
On 1 spot, the "on site spot", there is an O2 Joggler (and a bunch of other devices) connected to a Windows based LMS.
This LMS runs version 8. It does the job faithfully for many years now.
This Joggler runs the weather display wonderfully.
At this spot I control the devices using the "squeeze ctrl" app from a few android based devices
(no iWhatsoever devices on this reference "on site spot")
I've very briefly been running a SB radio at this spot, connected to LMS v8 and it was running fine.
(I mention this because the Radio has been moved to spot 2, see below, and it is maybe worth to know that the particular radio runs fine with version 7.9.3 as well as version 8. There have been some people struggling to run a SB radio in combination with LMS 8)
I should try and use material at "on site spot" to control the joggler on that one reference spot, and will do that soon, and report the result.
My goal is more related to spot 2, the "offsite spot".
There is a second 02 Joggler (and one SB radio that found its main location now) connected to the LMS running on this same Joggler.
This Joggler is the one running LMS 7.8.0 that comes with the 3.03 openframe OS.
It also features the weather display wonderfully, with other weather information, as it is running from a different location
I would like to upgrade this LMS 7.8.0 to 7.9.3 or above. (Any version hosting material skin natively)
The reason I would like the material skin to be on the LMS at this "offsite spot" is to be able to use 2 safari browser based devices as remote control for the joggler and the SB radio.
Then I would be able to run this from the safari browsers: http://IP-address-from-LMS-server-on-jo ... /material/
I don't need the material skin on the display of the O2 joggler itself.
No need for bionic or stuff like that. I hope. Am I right?
