    @Patrick:
    Maybe what you experienced is related to this:
    Domoticz GitHub Issue # 4800

    A update from libopenzwave 1.4 to 1.6 is mentioned as a probably cause, but that should not have been in your case as I guess your old libopenzwave version was 1.6.1114-3 (and your new version should be 1.6.1869-1)

    Interesting... I have not experienced that.

    I have tested on 2 machines, both using an UZB-stick (gen 5) and that have worked without any problems.

    Battery powered devices will usually take some time to interview depending on when the wake up next time.

    Discussing with Nick right now on how to do this. I think we (or rather Nick...) knows how to do this now. A domoticz package should therefore show up in clearos-contribs-testing soon (maybe even today).

    Please remember this is still a beta, so be a bit careful before you do this for a "production environment".

    1. Take a backup of all configuration files you have related to domoticz and its sub-components that you may be using. The domoticz update should make its own backup in /var/domoticz, but just to be sure... As stated earlier, the new domoticz does have a different format of the database making it impossible to go back to the old version without also restoring the database to its old state.
    2. Logged in as root, Execute the following command:
    (If you are using rtl_433 then I suggest you update that one to by adding " rtl_433" to the command line above

    Sorry for not responding faster... busy with other stuff. I will try to cooperate with Nick on a workaround ASAP (hours). Nick will then need to do some manual work...

    Started a separate 2021.1 thread...
    Running domoticz 2021.1 on my local ClearOS 7 machine. Seems to work fine... :)

    Domoticz 2021.1

    Hi everyone,
    Yessterday domoticz 2021.1 was released upstream. Historically, whenever there has been a stable domoticz release and it is rolled out there are things showing up as broken, and therefore yet another stable release has been made within a month from the first one fixing these problems. I do not know how it is going to be this time, but I have no intention to rush a release in ClearOS given these historic experiences.

    That being said, I am about to build the new domoticz 2021.1 and have it sitting in the clear7-contribs-testing repo for anyone that want to try it out. For those of you who want to try, please understand that the new domoticz version will update the underlying domoticz database to a new format, which makes it impossible to go back to the old version without restoring the database at the same time. This will require a bit of manual work, or else your existing configuration will be lost.

    I have successfully built the new domoticz version locally on my development machine. However, there are still some tweaks needed in the ClearOS build system before the new domoticz package is possible to build for the clear7-contirbs-tesing repo, and I will make another post in this thread when it is ready. Hopefully it is resolved within a couple of days.

    @Nick,
    1. As I suspected there are some packages that needs to be made available in Koji/mock before the new build will succeed. I sent an email request.
    2. I will try to take a look at your stellar spec file (the gitlab link is access restricted, but I can download the src.rpm from "updates-testing" repo and unpack it) during the weekend or so. But please understand that I am not an expert ;) . Here is a good documentation on packaging: Fedora packaging Guidelines where you will find good info. For %build and other scriptslets, look here: RPM Scriptlets.

    @Nick,
    Thanks for the info. This is more or less the same method that I have used. However I need the devtoolset-9 and openssl11 packages. And talking about throwing the full book at it: I put the entire %build section in a scl enabled shell...

    Since you obviously have been using the SCLo repos, (and I assume openssl11 from epel is available), then I will go ahead and make a try real soon... :) Just need to prepare for the domoticz build with an updated libopenzwave build that needs to be in place first.

    OK, as I suspected this was not going to be easy. If you really want to build packages yourself my advice is that you start with a much easier package... :)

    Domoticz has always been on the bleeding edge when it comes to dependencies on system components and this time it is "worse" than it ever was. It now requires a much more modern version of C-compiler, Cmake, OpenSSL, Boost library etc than what is (normally) available in ClearOS 7. After hours of trial and errors I think I now have a method do to this in a way that will be compatible with the rest of the ClearOS platform and its Koji build environment.

    But before I go ahead and make a test-build I need to understand if a few additional packages and a clearos-repositoriy that I have not used before are available for my build in Koji.I am currently waiting for some input on that.

    Given this, I will likely make a first test-build in about one week from now, and I expect to face some more challenges at that time too. So my best guess right now is that there might be a Domoticz "beta" version in contribs-testing repo in about 2 weeks from now. I will post in this thread when it is ready for testing.
