UNSOLVED MM2 not loading text
hi i made my MM2 a year or so ago and it has worked fine but recently on boot it will show the mm2 screen and then not load the text it just shows a black screen i have tried to log into vnc but the RPI refuses the connection i tried swapping RPI’s and that didn’t work i also can’t open a command window or shut it down what should i do?
@beth run it in ‘dev mode’ and see what the output is.
@cowboysdude they can’t get into the machine… vnc doesn’t connect
Did the IP change by chance? Check to see if IP is static and ssh into pi that way.
@swvalenti how do i check?
@beth check your router to see if the system has a reserved address
u can find its address with
ifconfig command in a terminal window
ethxx is ethernet wired
wlanxx is wireless lan
@Beth what Sam said
UPDATE: there is a command window that papers on the boot up screen it does not leave i connected keyboard/mouse to it and can enter commands like a terminal window although pm2start will not work and npm start gives the following err (note i copied this by hand so there may be slight imperfections)
npm ERR! code ENOENT
npm ERR! sysca11 open
npm ERR! path /home/pi/package . json
npm ERR! errno -2
npm ERR! enoent no such file or directory, open ‘/home/pi/package . jason’
npm ERR! enoent This is related to npm not being able to find a file.
npm ERR! enoent
@sdetweil i did that and it gave me the following err:
[PM2] spawning PM2 daemon with pm2 _home=/home/pi.pm2
[PM2] PM2 successfully daemonized
