I am running max2play 2.54 on a PI 3B+ with „pijiuce“ UPS attached and have noticed the following:-
1. If ethernet connection is lost (due to power outage at the ethernet switch, or ethernet cord removed) while PI is powered up, the PI does not reconnect on ethernet after the cord is replaced (or power reapplied to ethernet switch). Only by rebooting the PI can the ethernet be restarted successfgully.
2. When rebooting, ethernet connection on the PI does not start, unless a mouse is connected by USB to the PI. This is very repeatable: no mouse, no ethernet, 100% of the time. With mouse connected, ethernet always starts.
Any help please. Thanks31. Januar 2022 at 15:02 #52011
Please excuse the late reply. Is the problem still occurring? Are you using our stretch image? If so, you could try our Buster Image. If the problem also occurs there, you could try adding
allow-hotplug eth0to the following file: /etc/network/interfaces1. Februar 2022 at 13:12 #52017
Hi. Yes problem is still woth me. I am using V2.54 which I believe is a „buster“ image. How do I add „allow-hotplug eth0 to the following file: /etc/network/interfaces“ via the web interface? Or is there some other means to login to the pi runnig max2play?3. Februar 2022 at 16:34 #52024
You can check whether you are using a Stretch or Buster image at the bottom of the Settings/Reboot plugin by clicking „Debug Info“.
There are two ways to access the Pi’s file system: via an SSH connection or Samba. With SSH, you can either install Putty on a computer or our Remote Control Plugin in the web interface. Then you have to log in with the user name „pi“ and password „max2play“.
If you create a Samba share via our Filesystem/mount plugin, you can also access the Pi from a computer (for example Windows) via „Add network drive“. You can find more about this in our Wiki: https://www.max2play.com/en/wiki/creating-a-sambashare/3. Februar 2022 at 16:52 #52027
Thanks for this. I found the filew and added the line which you suggested to the END of ythe filew. So the file is as below. Is this correct?
# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
iface lo inet loopback
#auto eth0 # managed by ifplugd
iface eth0 inet static
#hwaddress ether 1a:64:b6:bf:36:37
#iface wlan0 inet dhcp
#pre-up wpa_supplicant -B w -D wext -i wlan0 -c /opt/max2play/wpa_supplicant.conf
#post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant

Please try to operate the system with a „normal“ power supply unit and disconnect the Ethernet connection during operation. Does the reconnect work there? If so, there is some problem with the pijuice. If not, please try to burn a new image onto the SD card and try everything again.
