    Hi i have a problem with getting my LED's to work. I have installed the correct driver for my LED's and installed hyperion through HyperCon with no errors. When i send my config file over and "stop" and "start" it nothing happens. In my log it comes up with:

    hyperion.service: Main process exited, code=killed, status=11/SEGV
    hyperion.service: Unit entered failed state.
    hyperion.service: Failed with result 'signal'.
    hyperion.service: Service hold-off time over, scheduling restart.
    Stopped Hyperion Systemd service.
    hyperion.service: Start request repeated too quickly.
    Failed to start Hyperion Systemd service.
    hyperion.service: Unit entered failed state.
    hyperion.service: Failed with result 'signal'.

    Anyone have any ideas what this could mean and how to fix it?

    Config:

    Thanks

    edit: okay i have the rainbow swirl but only after i press "stop". When i press start it does nothing. The log shows no errors and stays at: "INFO: Frame grabber created and started"

    I have had trouble with ws2812 led's driven from Rpi GPIO's before. Something to do with interrupts and bit-banging, I believe. (I'm not a coder i just read a lot) Most folk seem to use a Arduino with ws2812's. It seems that a Arduino is better at bit-banging and no interrupt problems.

    Just me thinking out loud. :)

    I tried using the ws281x driver but sometimes my SD gets corrupted and the system froze, I could not use ws2812-spi with level shifter , in the end I use an arduino uno

    I've got the same problem. Someone from Hyperion can look in this?
