@chief said in MagicMirror quits without errors:
I’m having the exact same problem
Hey I’m french
J’ai le même probléme sur Raspberry 2 installation nouvelle de Raspbian Stretch , MagicMirror 2.5 a demarré après la première installation mais après redémarrage , il affiche le bureau .
Ma précèdente installation Stretch avec la version 2.2 s’affichait normalement .
Avez vous une idée ?
Thanks for your help .
It sounds like something on your Pi is attempting to start the Magic Mirror process twice. If you used a cron job to start MM as well as PM2, then this can happen. Likewise, if your script that PM2 calls to start the process has the command twice, this can happen.
EADDRINUSE usually means that two processes are trying to serve up web pages on the same port. If that happens on reboot, then most likely two commands are trying to start MM.
My recommendation is to remove PM2’s attempts to start MM, reboot and see if the mirror process starts. If so, find out how it’s being called and remove that, then reset pm2 to do it. If MM doesn’t start after the reboot, run your netstat -lptn again and find out what’s listening on that port.
well something strange I noticed… (don’t know if that’s related)
My Desktop used to be PIXEL I think (this nice road wallpaper and menu bars at the top. Now it looks like it is running Openbox. I don’t know how this happened, but it was not intended by me. Was that changed in the newest version because of my upgrades?
up to now my MagicMirror was only in test mode and accessed via browser. Now I wanted to install it with a monitor on my mirror. If the RPi is not connected to HDMI, it works great. But as soon as I connect it and reboot it does not work. I can see the bootup of the RPi and a splash screen of MagicMirror saying “booting up”, but after that only a period of time a black cross and than the desktop. I also can not connect via browser, so MM is definetly not running. I will append the ~/MagicMirror/npm-debug.log
pm2 is listing MagicMirror as running.
When I disconnect the HDMI and reboot it works again from my browser. Can anyone please help?

this forum has been a huge help for me the plan and build my magic mirror. It will have indirect lighting included and needs a way to switch that on.
I planned to do this controlled by motion. I found the various modules here, but don’t know which is best to use. I also plan to use @paviro’s MMM-Facial-Recognition and read that some are not compatible and block the cam. Is there any motion detection module that uses camera and is compatible with the facial module?
If not I might use a PIR, but that’s only the worst case (I don’t like the hole in the front, maybe I mount it below the frame and adjust sensitivity to trigger with moving feet…).
@strawberry-3.141 well didn’t knew that… how do I get the dev console in electron? For installation I have the RPI sitting on my desktop and access it from my normal pc. But I think I can also run it on the rpi using vnc.
@Mykle1 the mirror itself is working fine. It’s only the alarm module making all black on alert. I have not changed anything else, it is a fresh installation of jessie.
is there a module that can set GPIOs high or low? I need that to controll some mosfets for LEDs. If not directly possible, maybe I can use a module to call a script that does this (and maybe even with software pwm, but thats more a thing of scripting…).
I am planning my first magic mirror, so I’m not familiar with all the modules available out there. I have seen modules for these chipped LED strips, but I want to use one of those classic RGB or RGBW strips.
As those need PWM for dimming I need 4 Pins. One way would be to use software PWM, but I have no experience with that. The other would be to use serial output to an arduino and use of of his PWM pins to controll the dimming. I have seen the MMM-gesture module which uses this way of communication, but only arduino->rpi. Is this also possible the other way around? Which way is easier to implement?
As I will probably use MMM-gesture there will be an arduino in any case, so additional hardware will be no problem.
