[OMV ODROID-XU4 Cloudshell LCD ]

  • Hi everybody !

    I just update older post to configure properly LCD screen on odroid-xu4 to show info from cloudshell script.

    [GNU General Public License (GPLv2)]

    First of all we need to configure LCD screen and add next lines...

    Module configuration (link)

    • $ echo "options fbtft_device name=hktft9340 busnum=1 rotate=270" > /etc/modprobe.d/odroid-cloudshell.conf

    • $ echo "spi_s3c64xx" >> /etc/modules

    • $ echo "fbtft_device" >> /etc/modules

    Next steps...

    • $ sudo apt-get update
    • $ sudo apt-get install curl sysstat

    I did work with this version of cloudshell script:
    forum.openmediavault.org/wsc/index.php?attachment/5387/ (You can download from here)

    Now we need to install .deb package: (wget command download the file on your current path, I recommended you create some folder to save "installation files and instrucctions")

    Before that you probably get some error... Don't worry
    The installation package put on /bin directory a script file, yes.. cloudshell.

    I attached a modified file that contains some "extra" information

    I had a problem with CPU usage but you will see in a script file some lines with cpu usage options... you can try it.

    This is part of /etc/inittab file, you need to view, compare and add lines to get cloudshell on TTY1
    The initttab file contains a "loop" to show information on lcd screen, if is not modified, the program mingetty will be running instead of cloudshell


    Bash: INITTAB
    54 # 1:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty --autologin root tty1
    55 1:2345:respawn:/bin/cloudshell --autologin root tty1
    56 2:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty2
    57 3:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty3
    58 4:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty4
    59 5:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty5
    60 6:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty6

    The other one contains two files, "cloudshell_lcd.original" and "cloudshell"
    "cloudshell" is the most important and you should copy on /bin to get information on lcd screen...

    NOTE: Im afraid of CPU usage are not real so...in this point I appreciate any suggestion to show real CPU usage, in that point only shows "sys cpu usage"...

    Hope that I have been able to help resolve this problem
