Question on reboot time vs. update sync

Apologies if this has already been asked, the search results were inconclusive.

The latest update to RoPieee includes the option to set an update interval and sync time. I set this to weekly and the sync time reflects the correct time to look for an update. However RoPieee is still rebooting nightly. I removed the reboot time from the ‘General’ settings tab however this sent RoPieee into a constant reboot loop.

Am I misunderstanding the functions?

Hi @wakajazz,

RoPieee’s update mechanism is (now) not related to the reboot time.
So even if you have set the update interval to 1 week RoPieee still needs an update.

This might change in the future, but rebooting a system that runs completely in RAM doesn’t hurt. I didn’t want to change that with the last release, because it’s something I really, really need to test for a longer period (to make sure that keeping it running ‘forever’ doesn’t have a negative impact).

And… you’ve discovered a bug. Because ‘removing’ a boot time should not be possible.

Hope this clears it up a little bit. I definitely need to work on the documentation :wink:
