I decided to upgrade my linhes box to version 8.
I downloaded the .iso and the checksum was good. burnt a disk, and followed the instructions here. Oh, I did the a database backup before I started and copied it off to my ubuntu lappy. I disconnected my data drive and did a clean install.

Now, instead of going through the full setup in myth_setup (as suggested on the guide), I exited and tried to reinstate the database. I am able to visit the webpage, but when I go to services>system health I do not get any information / options. Xymon doesn't seem to have started and I've given it a long time to come up... I know the guide says 10 min to get the webpage up but it's been hours.

What can I do to poke it appropriately?

Any advice will be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance

I'd stick with the guide and a do a full install on the drive. Get R8 going and then restore your data. You have the backup on another drive right?

Make sure to use the same Host name is the same and ip if possible.
Then you should be able to install chromium with pacman
Go to to the web and make sure everything works properly

Then follow thru the guide with the restore

Hi RacerX,

I was sticking with the guide, or so I thought. I'd done a backup of the db to my laptop, and unplugged the drive with my programmes on it.

After that, I burnt the image and done a fresh installation.
I gave the fresh install the same hostname as my previous R7 install and followed the on screen instructions to set up the network, the only thing I did different was give it a static ip address. I did not set mythtv up as instructed as the guide said this bit can be skipped. So from my laptop, I was able to go to the ip of my Linhes box. When I went to the >Services>System health I received the message "Xymon doesn't appear to be installed or started" and I could not upload the saved batabase. So I then waited for several hours, well actually I went off and put up a garden shed, but when I came back... the situation hadn't changed.

I then, reinstalled LinHes 8 and tried to complete all the setup. In myth-setup I was able to see the tuners had been auto detected, though when exploring their options and getting them tuned in I had real problems. Trying to go into the individual cards setup page was very slow, then tuning failed, repeatedly. Everything had been setup as far as I could see, apart from being able to find any channels and the box being very slow to respond. So exited Myth-setup, got the usual complained there were no channels (I selected "Yes, I know what I'm doing") and ended up at mythfrontend.

Back to the laptop, the linhes webpage was exactly the same... Xymon doesn't appear to be installed or started....

So, I am a bit stuck.

I would check that xymon is installed and running

pacman -Qs xymon

sv status xymon-server

ps -ef grep xymon


If it's not installed then something went wrong during R8 install. Either reinstall or try to install xymon with the command "install_supplemental_service.sh"


xymon log files are locate in /var/log/hobbit

Hi Jams,

Tired the suggestions you made...

So xymon reports to be there.
pacman -Qs xymon gives me:

local/xymonserver 4.3.5.-44
Hobit is a system monitoring service for networks.


When I as "sv status xymon-server" I receive run: xymon-server: (pid 703) 2027s in this instance.

ps -ef grep xymon complains. I see:

error: process ID list syntax error

When I try to reinstall via install_supplemental_service.sh I get

certmaster is already present

Is this just a permission error?

Thanks again.

So based on your previous reports, xymon is
1) installed
2) running
3) logging , and the logs don't have anything of note in them.

Does /data/srv/httpd/htdocs/xymon have an index.html or xymon.html file are are they owned by nobody?

um, I was just gathering the data (from my windows box via putty) and had a look at my linhes box via chrome and it all seems to be working now. I'll see if I can update my configuration....

Seems I can do this, however from chromium on my laptop it doesn't work, fortunately firefox does... go figure
