Introducing Z-Way package for Raspbian

Post by PoltoS » 14 Jul 2019 15:05

Dear Z-Way users!

As you have noticed, we are smoothly going from install script to Debian packages. The new v3.0.0 of Z-Way for Raspberry Pi will be distributed in .deb package.

We are happy to start tests of the new repository for Raspberry Pi: https://repo.z-wave.me/z-way/raspbian

To install Z-Way you need to do in your terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install dirmngr -y
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 7E148E3C
sudo bash -c 'echo "deb https://repo.z-wave.me/z-way/raspbian stretch main contrib" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/z-wave-me.list'
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install z-way-full
Short explanation:
  • install signature key management package for apt
  • add our Z-Wave.Me package signature to your apt
  • add https://repo.z-wave.me/z-way/raspbian to the source list
  • update the list of packages
  • install Z-Way
z-way-full package is a meta package that will install z-way-server (Z-Way server), zbw (remote access service) and webif (additional configuration tool). You can install any of those packages by explicit mention.

IMPORTANT! When you install on top of an existing Z-Way make sure to replace (select Y during installation) your Defaults.xml and /etc/init.d/z-way-server init script by those from the package and keep (select N) all your /etc/zbw/ files.

In future to update the package you will have to do:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install z-way-full
Currently stretch is supported. Soon we will add support for booster.

If you find any issue or have a suggestion, feel free to drop us a note (to me in PM or by mail)

Sounds really good.
sudo bash -c 'echo "deb https://repo.z-wave.me/z-way/raspbian stretch main contrib" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/z-wave-me.list'
How about for Jessie and Buster raspbian versions? ... I believe both are still/already in use

We will release Buster support soon. I think in August.

Jessie can also be supported in the same way, but most people have already updated to stretch, so we will look on users (means you!) before doing it.

Updating on Jessie to 3.0.0 doesn't really work at the moment out of the box, because of the missing openssl1.0.2
I guess I will just have to update the OS as well. ... not a real deal breaker.

It seems like Z-Way 3.0.0 was officially released today:
https://storage.z-wave.me/z-way-server/?C=M;O=D
https://storage.z-wave.me/z-way-server/ChangeLog

To update from 2.3.8 do I have to follow the steps described in the first post or will it be possible (and probably safer) to start the upgrade from the Z-Way UI ?
