Re: Instructions: Installing CumulusMX on Raspberry Pi

Mono 5.18.0.240 was what was downloaded when I specified 6.0.0.334 as my snapshot so, as that is working, I have changed my mono source entry to that. In view of the earlier troubles with non compatible of mono and if the only use for mono is to run CumulusMX it would seem sensible to stick with a v...

Re: Instructions: Installing CumulusMX on Raspberry Pi

Mark I have just changed the mono entry in /etc/apt/sources.list.d to- 'deb https://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian stable-raspbianbuster/snapshots/6.0.0.334 main' and reloaded mono-complete. This was the previous buster version as far as I could tell, but instead it loaded 5.18.0.240. This wo...

Re: Instructions: Installing CumulusMX on Raspberry Pi

The version is 6.4.0.198. I have completely removed and reinstalled mono-complete just to make sure there were no no funnies when mono was updated but the result is the same.

Re: Instructions: Installing CumulusMX on Raspberry Pi

After successfully running CumulusMX 3050 with Buster Mono for a couple of months, with the latest update to Mono (24/09/2019) on Buster with CumulusMX 3052, I am getting a mono error - see attached. I have reverted back to CumulusMX 3050 but get the same error so I suspect it is the latest Buster M...

Re: Instructions: Installing CumulusMX on Raspberry Pi

I tried removing the .ini file and other things but to no avail. I was still getting the same problem with identifying the Fine Offset on reboot. In the end I have done a complete new setup to a new microSD from scratch and it is identifying the Fine Offset without a problem with the basic Cumulus w...

Re: Instructions: Installing CumulusMX on Raspberry Pi

I am not yet out of the woods yet with the Buster version of mono with CumulusMX and a Fine Offset USB connection. I have been running for some time, first on Jessie with no problems, then on Stretch using the instructions for loading an earlier version of mono shown above. On reading the comment th...

Mono and CumulusMX under jessie and stretch

I have three Pi's, a 2B running Moode 4, a 3B running Nginx as a proxy sever under stretch for my home network and a 3b which is mainly running CumulusMX under jessie via mono for my weather station and website (www.craythorneweather.info). I would like to upgrade the jessie Pi3 to stretch but unfor...

Re: CumulusMX dosnt work properly for Fine Offset station

I had the same problem when I upgraded my pi 3b from jessie to stretch, so it probably is the version of mono which is in the stretch repository.

I have temporarily gone back to my backed up version of jessie whilst I ponder digging out the earlier version of mono that works.

Re: CumulusMX Raspberry PI and nginx

I am using files (and instructions) out of the moonphase.zip file from David at djmsystems. The version of PHP I have on the RPI is PHP5-FPM which is the version shown in most of the nginx configuration examples I have seen.
I'll read up on GD and substitute that. Many thanks for the pointer.

CumulusMX Raspberry PI and nginx

Having run Cumulus 1 for a number of years on a pc feeding an apache web server on a linux (Fedora) box (http://www.craythorneweather.info) from a Fine Offset weather station, I have changed to running MX on a raspberry pi 3. This has enabled me to get the wireless receiver and raspberry pi far clos...

Windows 10 technical preview.

Re: Real time updating

Steve As a final word on my problem, in case anyone else should encounter it, the fault was not a typo in the target directory but the directory itself. PROFTPD, the FTP server I am using on the linux machine, does not require a target directory from the FTP client, it gets this from the data set up...

Re: Real time updating

Well spotted!! Both are typo's. Should be /var/www/html/weather.

It says something for the linux ftp server (Proftpd) that it gets some of the data to the right place even when the address is wrong.

Many thanks.

Re: Real time updating

Geoff - they are on different machines. Cumulus doesn't work on linux. Steve /var/www/httpd/weather as an address is not unusual in a linux environment. My guess is that it is a permissions issue. the error message might not be that accurate in what it is describing. The normal FTP log (attached) sh...
