As part of my effort to produce a package for the Watchguard lcd I recompiled the driver. Until I get a proper package out anyone installing fresh might as well use this new set of programs. This for 2.0 only
, it won't work on 1.2.x. Installation is as before.
Download the attached file and remove the .png extension.
Upload lcdd5.tar via the web GUI, Diagnostics: Command Prompt: Upload, this puts it in /tmp.
Then open a command line via serial or SSH or whatever and:
[2.0-RC3][root@pfSense.localdomain]/root/tmp(3): cd /tmp
[2.0-RC3][root@pfSense.localdomain]/tmp(4): tar xvf lcdd5.tar
And your display should be working.
Renamed the install script to make it easier to type!
The programs, lcdproc and LCDd, are now V0.53 compiled against FreeBSD 8.1-Release.
The driver, sdecldec, was giving a lot of warnings when I tried to compile it. These have been corrected.
The new version seems to obey the LCDd.conf file better such that the option heartbeat=no now works removing the ugly error on the right hand side of the display.
The key mapping is still incorrect for X-e boxes.
I had no response to my question as to whether anyone uses the big clock or vertical histogram functions. Personally I would rather have the heartbeat functioning but it's a choice in the driver. Any opinions?
