bye Qnap, welcome RaspberryPi

 Jan, 31 - 2015   Smarthome

I just migrated my OpenHab / EbusD setup from the qnap to a raspberry pi.

Now, why did I do that?

I had a of issues running the EbusD on the Qnap. After running firmware updates, the USB driver had changed and EbusD refused to read data from the Ebus. It was also nearly impossible to compile the new version of EbusD on the Qnap, due to the lack of libs and a proper package management.

Well I have to admit: The Qnap is not designed to compile and develop custom software on it. Therefore I bought a raspberry pi and migrated OpenHab to it. Since then I’m running the new version of EbusD and I’m getting even more data out of the Ebus.
