Using BalenaEtcher to install the Raspi3 version of HA as shown in the instructions:
After flashing the card, putting it in the Raspi3 for 1st time and turning on. No boot, No green light of activity, nuffin
Continued this on several cards to try and get it to work, but no failed every time to even provide a glimmer of a green activity light on the old Pi.
Checked the Raspi, does it actually function, yes it does. Used a fresh install of Rasp-light, latest copy, and yes all bursts in to life. Even did this using the same cards as I had flashed the HA image on.
Also followed the instructions here (which I prefer to do):
So, installed Debian 10 (on one of the flash cards I had used in the above experiment) configured host name, forced the router to reserve its IP and updated. Added in docker CE, all working correctly, booting ok etc. made sure everything was updated.
went to install the HA bits etc. All seem to install in to Docker ok Tried to connect to 8123 as per expectation. Nope, no cookie for me
Did a little digging on what was available:
- ports 22 & 4357 were open
- attached to 4357 via Chrome browser: Home Assistant observer, Supervisor Connected
- Saw in Docker that 4357 was being repointed to port 80 (expected etc.)
Well, I’m not a Docker expert, but I’m assuming that there is meant to be some pointer to the HA landing page container? a redirect of port 8123 to the container’s port 80?
Any help guidance would be most appreciated, going out of my mind a bit here, well already a fruit cake!!
