Cumulus MX and Raspberry Pi ... advice please

Post by odintheterrible » Wed 02 Aug 2017 3:39 pm

Greetings one and all,

As a total novice to Raspberry Pi I'm looking at using this left over pi from a previous project to run Cumulus MX. Problem is, I'm also very interested in running 'Restreamer' on the Pi to live stream a weather cam.
As a novice, I started by installing the Raspbian release which is good because of the GUI which helps a lot instead of having to rely on command line prompts etc
So question 1 is: what would be the best location on the Pi to extract the Cumulus stuff to ?
But now it gets tricky, because as far as I can find out, Restreamer comes as an image for the Pi and once installed it has no GUI, just the command line, so would it be possible to unzip Cumules to a created directory/folder in order to get it to run, assuming that I can get the latest version of MONO to install ?
Talk about a steep learning curve ... it's vertical !!!!!! LOL
Any assistance/input would be greatly received ;)

Thanks

Hi,
I don't see any issue with running both CumulusMX and Restreamer together in a RaspberryPi under Raspbian. note that Raspbian is a full GUI operating system like WIndows or MacOS, and also has a full Unix command line capability within it.

To install Cumulus just unzip it to a directory under your login directory on the Pi. Typically your login directory will be /home/pi, so Cumulus will end up in /home/pi/CumulusMX.

Restreamer runs as a docker image, so just install docker as per the instructions on the restreamer page and run. As long as the two are running on different ports, they will both be available via a web browser by specifying the appropriate port number.

Basically, you just need to follow the instructions as is for each of the two programs. The fact that they are both installed on the same Raspberry Pi is no more an issue that installing both Word and Excel (for example) on a PC.

Good luck!
David
