FAHControl at Raspberry pi

Postby Ibringapples » Sun Apr 19, 2020 3:32 pm

Hello,

I'd like to install the FAHClient in a Raspberry pi to watch and monitorize a few machines that I have running.

Is there a way to install it?

Thank you very much :)

Nice idea. I think you only need FAHControl, which is written in Python. So it should be possible to port the Linux (x64) package to Raspbian (ARM) -- unless there is some component that prevents it.
I'm not familiar with the innards, though. I think the source is now available on Github.

There is also a document on GitHub that discusses the API, so you could create your own interface to run on another system to manage/monitor the F@h client remotely. One person I am aware of did that for iOS, look for FahMM.

Hello!!

Worked for me after install:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install -y python-stdeb python-gtk2 python-all debhelper


Useless info: Looks cool :D

Thanks a lot.

Not useless at all: very good info when the next person (here or on the Pi forum) demands a Pi folding client.
Much better than the normal "Pis aren't powerful enough for Folding", which I've had to say too often.
Thanks for trying it!
