    That's really odd. All the libraries (as well as python itself) are bundled in the deb package, which is why it is not possible (or at least trivial) to run the program manually as well. This is a standard Debian mechanism for distributing python applications to prevent library version conflicts. We did test the package several times when we released it, but it's possible something has gone amiss in the meanwhile.

    @Martin-Kudláček mentioned he will test with a clean image to see if there are any issues with the current installation instructions, it's possible we have missed something.

  • I installed

    apt-get install raspberrypi-kernel-headers
    

    Then removed evok and unipi-modbus-tools before I reinstalled them. New status is:

    Hello @alydersen
    I was unable to reproduce the problem. I followed this scenario and the evok is working out of the box:

    1. Download the image and flash it to the SD card using WIn32DIskImager: https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian_lite_latest
    2. Start the PLC and SSH into it
    3. sudo bash
    4. apt update
    5. apt upgrade
    6. reboot
    7. At this point I have a up-to-date Raspbian. I SSHed again
    8. sudo bash
    9. apt install nginx
    10. rm -f /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default
    11. apt install unipi-modbus-tools
    12. apt install evok
    13. reboot

    And the evok after reboot works:

    0_1537281175562_85644aeb-538e-4a80-819f-b885a743dde7-image.png

    I can see from your output that you have a different version of kernel (4.14.50-v7+ vs. 4.14.69-v7+ in up-to-date Raspbian). What image do you use?

  • That worked! It needs a reboot between the first update and the unipi-stuff. Thanks!

    Hooray @alydersen! Thanks for the feedback, we will update the documentation.
