WOW!  The Captain is back!  Welcome, sir.  You have been missed!

I agree, the default should be "don't check".  Then again, I speak from the status that all of mine are not attached to the internet unless I bring them into the work bench.

I have been lurking a little bit in the past couple weeks, but am slowly getting back into the swing of things.  :)

I will test out a fix for v1.x so the setting defaults to not automatically installing updates on new installs.  The way it will probably work is whenever there is a new USB stick or media location then the default will revert back to off.

Will there be anything special needed to address the WiFi "CRACK" exploit or is doing an upgrade/update on the OS enough?

I wouldn't run OS updates as you risk breaking things.  If they don't patch it I'd run off a guest or segmented wifi network not on your private network wifi in order to somewhat mitigate the risk of your private network being compromised...though I doubt a hacker is going to be targeting the FPP.  This is more to extract other data.  Read more about it here https://www.krackattacks.com/ and it will make more sense why the FPP isn't really a target based on it's primary use.

I have an older setup that has been running pretty good, so I haven't been updating it.

Recently I let it do the updates and all went well, but the version is currently saying: v1.0-119-g3874ec4

Am I not able to upgrade from 1.0 to 1.9?  Just wanted to make sure I am not doing something wrong before I consider trying to setup a new system.....

Folks,
I'm trying to do a new install and running in to issues. I hope this is the right place to come for this kind of help.

I loaded 1.8.
  Manually fixed a problem with mounting the USB drive. fstab had /dev/sda1, that was failing. Changed it to /dev/sda and the drive mounted.

Now I'm trying to enable test mode and it is not working.
 I know my LEDs work, they're new but I tested the strip on an Arduino. Tried with my, known working, Neopixels but they didn't work either. Not sure that they should though.

Went hunting and found the logs directory on the USB drive. Whenever I go to the display testing page I get an error in the apache.error.log
  PHP warning fopen(/home/fpp/media/channelmemorymaps): failed to openstream: No such file or directory in /opt/fpp/www/testing.php on line 661
  Then there is an fclose error about expecting parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in the testing.php line 664 script.

This is a new install. I've never had Falcon Player working.
I have the Falcon Pi Cap and have configured pixels on both of the Strings in the Output Config, the output type is rpiws2812x and it is marked as active.

Is there something I missed or is this a 1.9 issue?

I just pulled out my Rasp Pi with FPP that has been in storage for a couple of years.  It has V1.0-119-g3874ec4 running currently, what is my best way to get updated to v1.9?

I'd recommend a fresh install:  http://falconchristmas.com/forum/index.php/topic,483.0.html

That build is so old and I doubt it even has the code to update in the GUI.

So I just set up my first FPP ever, and ran the updates from the web UI once I got it up and running. It went from v1.8 to v1.9, where it told me I could upgrade again. I'm showing Version: v1.10-27-g259bc38. Is this a proper update? Am I running version one point one zero, or am I running version one point ten? Is this a current and/or stable release, or should I start over and get to v1.9 again, and leave it there? Thanks in advance, I'm just getting my feet wet with Falcon.

You are on one point ten and are where you should be.  I have always disliked anything after the point being greater than nine because of sorting issues, but wasn't ready for a 2.0 release, so went with 1.10 instead.

Maybe the first update after 2.0 should be 2.01  ::)

yes agreed. 1.9 to 1.10 was, to most people, a step back in version numbers, so 2.01 would be a logical choice
