Re: Davis Vantage Pro2 Aerocone

Mine is on the way. Looks like I'll likely have to redo the solar/uv sensors and move to the front as my current config without the birdspikes has them at the back. I'm guessing the spikes will cause 'spikes' (haha) in the data as the sun traverses across the sky.

Re: Com port problems

At the end it looks like an unauthorized error is thrown. Are you running the program as administrator?

Re: RaspberryPi: CumulusMX init.d System Startup Script

Today, after more then 200 days uptime, a network outage caused my Raspberry Pi to hang so I needed to reboot and once it came up again, the CumulusMX was not started by the init.d script. After some minutes I found out, that the /etc/init.d/cumulusmx was set to run as user pi CumulusMX_USER=pi but...

Re: Cumulus startup anomalies on my suspect hardware

there is a way on both versions using ClockSettingHour in the INI file. Has to be edited there directly while Cumulus isn't running. I searched all the (many) Cumulus .ini files looking for this parameter name. Not there, so obviously I have to add an entry. I was hoping to set it to 5:20 a.m., but...

Re: Cumulus startup anomalies on my suspect hardware

The stats get reset by the console after midnight, but they also get reset whenever the time is set via the serial link. Cumulus does this on startup, and in the early hours - configurable via the ini file iirc. I don't have any problems with the reception stopping in cumulus connect. As Steve said...

Re: MX 3043 Issues

Thank you all for your efforts to make my Rpi running as I want it. @VTHokie 74: Yes I'm aware of the script but since crontab doesnt work, I was stuck. Since the nice guys are helping me with a script file I was going for that. @BigOkie: I was following the steps. I have created a password for the...

Re: Cumulus Realtime.txt Dashboard Template

I know it seems simple, but what permissions have you got for the folder? (if it is in one) Is the error 500 instant, or does it take a few seconds? It is in a folder and the permissions are 0755. The error is pretty instant. If I try to render the page with php command line, output is always blank...

Re: MX 3043 Issues

nope, doesn't work. Also it doesn't give me access to type anything more. As VTHokie74 mentions I have also heard Jessie is bugged. I'll try your method or I'll downgrade my Debian you'd be better off running CumuluxMX on pi as root. I know a bunch of (dumb) people say you shouldn't but if it's you...

It's probably a WU issue. WU has been in the suckage for the last week or so.

Re: WU Updates - MX4043

I've seen it happen before, especially during and after a WU outage. Not the fault of Cumulus is my assessment. WU sucks.

Re: Running NOAA Reports in MX

The way I did it was to have a copy of Cumulus 1 handy and put the data files where they could be read and generate them there.
