Moin,
did You try

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install -f
?
If You install rocrail on a new os build, you must install the additional packages

I made a new sd-card today, using the latest os stretch.
configuring the raspi at start to may localisation
downloaded rocrail from https://wiki.rocrail.net/rocrail-snapshot/ and started installation with a dobbleclick on the downloaded file.

Johannes this is what I did on the second install and as you say it works ok. But in the first install which uses the dpkg command and it is described as well in RR pages, does install and work as well but Rockview erratically exits. Using the method you describe I now have a stable install and I was able to drive a train between 2 blocks using a single sensor nicely...

Hi Manos,

there is no such program "Rockview" in the installer, just Rocrail and Rocview. 8)

To install Rocrail, read the Wiki:
https://wiki.rocrail.net/doku.php?id=do ... spberry_pi

Code: Select all

sudo apt install rocrail-xxxxx-raspbian-stretch-armhf.deb
The dpkg utility should not be used for a standard install, even if did you found it on developer or user pages which is not part of the official documentation.

Hi Rob,

The dpkg command is used in first-steps, should that be changed or a note added?

Rob I am sorry for "Rockview" my misspell, I hope didn't cause any inconvenience to some.
The dpkg method is not at user pages but as Tom said is in the "first steps". In that respect could mislead other users too, so it was good to become aware of. It may took me some days of frustration but since it has changed could save time and disappointment to others.
