Thanks Steve. I'll read the FAQ on that. I knew I had to shut down MX to edit files.

Re: No historic records read from Davis station after power cut

I had to do the same thing a while back. I set both intervals to 5 minutes. The console had been set to the default 30 minute interval. I couldn't find my original Weatherlink CD but Davis sent me a link to download the full latest version. The public website only has the update files. I had a power...

Re: Noob Cumulus MX & Raspberry Pi Questions

Great! I made a similar switch last year except I was running Cumulus on an old laptop with Windows XP and moved to CMX on a RP3.

Can't you set up your iMac to automatically log in to an account?

Re: Wind Run

My record wind run was 83.2 miles on a day in February 2016. Wind run is a pretty neat statistic that answers the question of how windy it was today.

Re: Raspberry Pi Install

Did you restart CumulusMX. I found some changes require a restart. I assume you uploaded the correct files.

Novy

I was wondering if you had forgotten the step to make cumulusmx.sh executable the first time?

Re: RaspberryPi: CumulusMX init.d System Startup Script

jank, I think you are correct. I assumed he had already installed the main start stop script. That would explain it.

Re: RaspberryPi: CumulusMX init.d System Startup Script

Manually running screen and CumulusMX does nothing on reboot. You need to run a script to run CumulusMX on reboot. Go back and read the first post in this topic and follow the instructions.

Re: RaspberryPi: CumulusMX init.d System Startup Script

Try typing "screen bash". Then run CumulusMX. Then disconnect the screen by hitting cntl-A then release and hit D. Now you should be back in terminal with CumulusMX running in a screen. You can check by typing "screen -ls".

Re: RaspberryPi: CumulusMX init.d System Startup Script

You need to start CumulusMX when you in screen and then you can switch back to terminal mode. Then you can detach the screen session and go back to terminal. By doing that CumulusMX will run un...

Re: RaspberryPi: CumulusMX init.d System Startup Script

You have screen installed but I am not seeing where you are actually opening a screen to run CumulusMX. You can open a screen by just typing "screen". Then type"sudo mono CumulusMX.exe" in the CumulusMX directory to start CumulusMX. To detach the screen and get back to terminal h...
