  • Mono upgrade gone bad

    I just upgraded to the current version of Mono. Now none of my events will run. Any ideas?

        do you have a backup of your install on mono 3xxxx?

          IF yes : Return to your old backup on mono 3xxxx



          1- Go to setup - Tools - Labs - Export events.

          2- Update mono again to 5.xxxx

          3- Go to setup - Tools - Labs - Import events.

            Exporting events to .json ( then importing of course..) was designed by homeseer for this exact situation you have here.


            Edit : The option is there... but it should be more clearly advertised.

              Thanks for the help. I restored the pre-mono-update configuration, but when I type "mono --version" it tells me the version is 5.16.0.179.

                Yes you will need to completely remove current version of mono and any references to it before reinstalling Mono 3.X.

                It is a bit of a PITA. While doing this make sure that Homeseer is in OFF mode.

                remove extra stuff first like:

                sudo apt remove --purge mono-vbmc
                sudo apt remove --purge --auto-remove mono-runtime
                sudo apt-get purge libmono* libgdiplus cli-common libglitz-glx1 libglitz1
                sudo rm -rf usr/lib/mono /usr/local/bin/mono /usr/local/etc/mono /usr/local/lib/mono

                Then remove any references you installed in /etc/apt to new MONO.

                Then reinstall old version of mono that you had running. Google mono installation of old versions.

                You will need to add /etc/apt references to the old mono.

                Then run your old copy of Homeseer and export your stuff. Put it on a USB stick or an easy to access location. Then update mono and run Homeseer and import your stuff.

                  The latest version of Mono does not work with HS, VB/ASPX is broken. 5.0.1 is the latest 5.x version that works. Bug is open to Mono: https://github.com/mono/mono/issues/9883

                    Thank you Bill relating to version of Mono to utilize - IE: 5.0.1

                    Here do not utilize ASPX on my two Linux HS3 boxes and using current release of Mono.

                    ICSPine64:~# mono -V
                    Mono JIT compiler version 5.16.0.179 (tarball Thu Oct 4 11:44:02 UTC 2018)

                    There is a DIY here on the forum for installing an older release of Mono on your Linux box.

                      I also locked my mono repo to 5.0.1.1. But I just updated to mono 5.18.I guest it's time to move on from old .aspx... Simplex Technology (catch 22 haha)



                      ----

                      This is not to much related... but we go to linux to get better control and stability etc... and we lock mono to an old version...
                      It,s up to the user to chose whatever he wants... but that sounds a little like, ... a dissonant way of acting/thinking

                      Just an opinion.

                          I know Aspx is ''old''. But if someone knows how to resolve that i think we can donate a certain ammount $$ on hs3 side ! I'll start something , if someone want to resolves this bug.

                          Thanks

                          Maybe that is the last option?
                          If someone want to works on this bug... and we gives like 5-10$ each.... this bug will be a thing of the past..

                              While you many not currently, it does block of a number of plugins. Many of Jon00 uses ASPX as well as Blades... FYI as I hadn't even realized this until I did the upgrade and those broke...
