Fresh install



  • Hey guys…

    Just finish installing a fresh install of MM2 with Raspberry pi 3, everything looks good except having issue with 2 default modules.

    News feed and Calendar are never showing something. Even using the default feed and calendar!

    @PointPubMedia Can you show us your config.js setup? Thanks. Just a dummy check, is your pi connected to the internet?

    And yes I have access to Internet, weather is working ;)



  • That’s very strange…

    I reboot the raspberry for another reason and now, everything is working…


  • Module Developer

    Glad I could help! :-/

    That likely happened because the respective node fetchers didn’t start when you first tried it. Killing the app and restarting it would’ve fixed that … and by rebooting the pi, you accomplished the same thing.
