Re: Raspberry Pi Zero Servo Interface for Turnouts

Raspberry Pi Zero Servo Interface for Turnouts

I started off with JMRI and while it works, I was a little frustrated with it's lack of integration with TCP/IP. That lead me to RocRail, since all of my Google searches for "DCC Train Control Ethernet" seemed to take me to it. I started to research RocRail for it's open connectivity and saw where T...

Re: RocView Won't Start on Raspbian/RPi 3

Yes, I mis-typed. I should have said I used dpkg -i to install it. Not wget -i. I'm used to using apt-get for most installations.

Re: RocView Won't Start on Raspbian/RPi 3

Did you install like this: sudo apt install rocrail-xxxxx-raspbian-stretch-armhf.deb I did not. I was not aware that RocRail could be installed through an apt-get installation. I was follow...

RocView Won't Start on Raspbian/RPi 3

I have gone through the wget and installation steps to install the latest snapshot build on a fresh install of Raspbian/Pixel OS on an RPi 3. Everything shows up fine in the menu. No errors on installation. The only thing I can get to run is a small control utility that doesn't appear to do anything...

Hi From Virginia, USA

I'm new to RocRail. I have been using JMRI for several years and while it works, I am constantly frustrated with how archaic it can be for certain functions. I have it running under Raspbian on a Raspberry Pi 3. What I would like to do is replace it with RocRail. I installed RocRail on a Pi 3, but I...
