the VSCP Daemon

vscpd install problem workaround

If you get

Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/ → /lib
Job for vscpd.service failed because the service did not take the steps required
by its unit configuration.
See "systemctl status vscpd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

when installing the VSCP daemon the install program did not install the directory structure needed for the VSCP subsystem. The workaround is easy. Just run

sudo vscpd -s

and then terminate immediately and all should be alright. This will create the necessary folders. You need to issue

sudo systemctl start vscp

to start the VSCP daemon after doing this. As an alternative you can reboot.

I will fix this in the next release.
