I am running OpenWrt 21.02.3 on Watchguard Firebox X750e Core (target — x86-generic). Everything's great, except
lcdproc refuses to work.
I installed the
lcdproc-drivers. At installation, the system has determined (correctly, it seems) that the applicable driver is
sdeclcd. After istallation, I uncommented Hello and Goodbye lines in
/etc/LCDd.conf (start simple, right?), but I am yet to see those lines on the LCD. Was there a configuration step I missed?
Trying to debug the issue led to an interesting realization. When I run
service with no arguments, all LCD-related services (
lcdvc) are shown as enabled (which is good) and stopped (which is bad). But if I immediately run, say,
service lcdproc status
it returns running. Same with the other two services. So it would seem the system is of two minds about whether services are running or not. So who's crazy, me or the Firebox? More importantly, how do I make the Hello and Goodbye lines show on the LCD?
Thank you in advance for any ideas!
