Fresh Raspberry Pi image (RASPBIAN Debian Wheezy)
Under https://kegbot.org/docs/server/install/#set-up-an-environment I’ve followed all the steps but seem to be having some issues.
The documents show this:
$ virtualenv /data/kb
but it errors out and the only way I can get it to work is if I use sudo.
The same goes for:
pip install -U kegbot
And it errors out. Are these install docs valid for setup on a Raspberry Pi?
We actually have a RPi-specific installer called “Kegberry”, which makes a lot of simplifying assumptions for you. Have you given those instructions a shot? In your case, I’d follow method #2.
Ya I’ve been looking at that this morning. From what I understand though, is that I won’t be able to use the Android that is running the kegbot software that allows the photos/nfc/pour notifications still?
Is this a false assumption?
I should follow up by stating that my current build is a two tap system with a kegboard, flow sensors, etc, that I bought from Kegbot a year ago. I’m just rebuilding the software and having a hard time.
You can definitely use Rapsberry Pi and Android concurrently!
Kegberry makes it possible to use Kegbot without a tablet – letting you plug the controllers directly into the RPi. However if you don’t do this, it’s just like any other Linux box running
Be warned that the RPi is a little underpowered (though there are many happy bots using it this way).
I tried to set up a kegserver on a mac mini that I have running plex, but I’ve been having issues getting that up and running python? I’ll have to retry and see if I can get that going and then just walk away.
Any word on Keghub and if that will ever get off the ground?
It’s humming along it beta, unfortunately we’re still a little ways away from opening it up to everyone. I’ll post an update here separately soon.
Great news. Especially with the TLD .BEER out now
