The service fails to start. It works in Fedora 19, but for some reason not in Fedora 21.

Determined the issue was a java error:

No X11 DISPLAY variable was set, but this program performed an operation which requires it.

A search of the internet indicated the best way to solve it was to do:
export DISPLAY=0:0

Added that to the startup script and app now appears to work.

does this work on your headless HDA?

there are three possibilities here:

  • you are testing it in a system that has an X running (and happens to use the default DISPLAY or 0:0), or
  • if you are testing it in the bot machine, the bot machine is running a tiny X server for the purposes of using the "headless browser" that the bot uses
  • it's also possible that it requires this variable for some silly reason and when it tries to connect to the X server it fails, but gracefully

in either of the two first cases, it may happen to work, but it may not work for the user that has a standard amahi install without desktop.

so, i would try it on a system without desktop or running or without the bot X server running (which starts at boot time on a bot-enabled box!)

The first two apply here. I found out on my own instance that it does not work :(

Back to the drawing board. Odd that it works on F19 though.
