Re: Stuck on oeRNC charts Plug in and installing oeRNC Charts on a MacBook

Hi:

Resurrecting this thread as I still cannot use OpenCPN on my Mac.

I ran into the same error "I got an error startup: Cannot find the oenrc_pi server utility at {}" again this past weekend.

I tried recreating my FPR file and failed.

This morning I used the tried at true "troubleshooting" method of uninstalling and reinstalling OpenCPN, the oeRNC and oeSENC plugins. Neither of these plugins will create an FPR file. Both show "DONGLE NOT PRESENT" in the "System Identification" box above the "Create System Identifier file..." button after it fails.

Do I need the Dongle Plug In?

https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/c4hq2...9qoyu9e27rknz1

I couldn't get the log file to upload... there's a link in dropbox.

Please help.

Thanks

Mike

Re: Stuck on oeRNC charts Plug in and installing oeRNC Charts on a MacBook

Mike..


the dongle is not required - and anyhow: for macOS there is no support from the dongle manufacturer at this moment.
We just learned that he is waiting for the important changes in the management of kernel extension Apple has announced.
Dongles are an option for user who want to experiment or are working with unstable systems as some few W10 cases. Or for people who want to install the charts on more than 2 systems and using them just on one at a time.



On the other hand the issue on some macOS systems where the oeserverd does not get discovered is a complete mystery for us - your case.
Especially when on the same system sometimes it works and some days or hours after a restart it fails. We have not seen this on any of hour Macs we use for testing and development. And we don't have therefore any way to reproduce the failure.
What makes it impossible to find the reason. If you think you have observed some pattern or are able to test in depth, that would be helpful.

Good to know about the dongle and the cause.

Let us dig into the Mac troubles with o-charts plugins.
Focus on oeRNC, taking small repeatable steps.


What version of MacOS are you running?

Are you currently seeing this error: "Cannot find the oenrc_pi server utility at {}""


Thanks

When you have read this thread your questions have been answered already. He is running Catalina and is always seen this error above.
Instead of asking dump questions you better fix all the bugs of the macOS version of OpenCPN. It doesn't help to play with another plugin installer. An installer for macOS version of OpenCPN main program is needed first.

Please try this:
1. Open a command prompt window.
2. Execute this:
Code:
$  /Applications/OpenCPN.app/Contents/Plugins/oernc_pi/oeaserverd -a
and report results.

OK, thanks.
Now, please have a look in the OpenCPN logfile, searching for something like the following:


Code:

18:54:33 EST: PlugInManager:  /Applications/OpenCPN.app/Contents/Plugins/oernc_pi/liboernc_pi.dylib

18:54:33 EST: oeaserverd results:
18:54:33 EST: 0
18:54:33 EST: No Dongle detected

Please post equivalent results from your logfile, or near equivalent if different.


Thanks

If convenient, will you download and install this test version of the oeRNC plugin?


https://www.dropbox.com/s/8j6rpdzi36...1.1.8.pkg?dl=0


With this test, we are trying to prove that the oeaserverd program is available and executable at run-time.

For this one, you should see something like this in the log:

Re: Stuck on oeRNC charts Plug in and installing oeRNC Charts on a MacBook

As an addition: From the macOS Activity Monitor, what do you see when running OCPN and searching for processes starting with "oe"?

I find that very odd. I'm not a Mac user, but on Unix it doesn't work for non-root users


Code:
$ ls -la /opt/test.sh 
-rwx--x--x 1 root root 23 Feb 22 10:03 /opt/test.sh
$ /opt/test.sh 
/bin/bash: /opt/test.sh: Permission denied
