How I got my Magic Mirror working on a Raspberry Pi 0 (zero)



  • @SebTota said in How I got my Magic Mirror working on a Raspberry Pi 0 (zero):

    git pull && npm install

    Have there been errors when you did so?

    I got

    npm WARN lifecycle magicmirror@2.1.1~install: cannot run in wd %s %s (wd=%s) magicmirror@2.1.1 cd vendor && npm install /home/me/MagicMirror
    

    Thats why I then did

    cd ~/MagicMirror/vendor && npm install
    

    in addition (see my post above). Maybe this also solves your problem.



  • @Hawking Sorry to keep bothering you but I ended up making it work with the two commands you told me to do. Now my problem is when the Pi Zero W is booting it connects to the WiFi but when magic mirror boots the pi disconnects.



  • @SebTota
    Just to make sure that I understand the problem correctly:
    You see the MagicMirror on the screen (Clock running etc). but you can no longer connect to the Pi Zero (using eg. ssh)?

    Just as a test:
    What happens if you disable the MagicMirror from autostart (for example by moving the MagicMirror start script from /etc/init.d/ to your home directory) and start it manually while you are already logged in? I don’t know your exact setup or your Linux knowledge, if you need further help how to do this, just let me know.



  • @Hawking I actually eventually got it working. Thanks so much for all your help!



  • Hello everyone.

    I’ve followed the instructions and did everything in the comments (all 12 pages) to make sure I am doing them right. I was able to see MM2 thru the browser but on my screen, it is showing white screen.

    mind helping me out with this?


  • Module Developer

    @hoggboss22 your mm seems being excuted multiple. Common pitfal is that more than one browser are opened.(maybe your previous test running?)
    Or your machine is already using port 8080.

    Kill all browsers(and node or npm) and restart. Or change port in your config like 8088.



  • I thought the same thing, i changed from 8080 to 9090 and it gave me the same error. I ran the net stat command to find the port being in used and guess what… there was nothing that is using 8080 or 9090

  • Hello:) I have similar problem. Magic Mirror installed from image downloaded from this thread. Installed on piZero. Working ok. On screen there was a message to update. I did this and now MM not working. Try config with only clock. Not help.

    Sometimes, this error seems to happen when MM is terminated abnormally. (I don’t know what is normal termination. :D)
    In my case, execution npm for debug or test after first normal pm2 bootup makes this error.(Of course, before npm start dev I stopped pm2 process.)
    For the solution, I change port from 8080 to 8081 or from 8081 to 8080(when I meet this problem again). It seems that after some minutes the port is freed automatically(or by execution with port changed.). And fortunately for me, first execution of MM(by pm2 on bootup) is always a success. So… I stop caring about this.



  • my I please someone to make an image of sd card with installed and working MM? i’m trying about week to run MM on piZero and nothing… all the time diffrent errors which i don’t understand.
