    Hello everyone!

    I created a new image, with the new Raspy 10 BUSTER, however it seems there is a problem in the management of the log.
    Version: Raspbian Buster Lite V. 20/06/2019 (and 10/07/2019) & Cumulus MX Release 3.0.0 b3050
    This involves problems with graphics, and NOAA file management.

    When the raspberry is restarted, a NUL line is created.
    The line is very long, after the NUL series a data string appears. But cumulus goes wrong. Test done with raspy Pi0W and Pi2b.

    This happens to me because every night, I restart the raspberry. Or if I restart it to do tests.

    Pay attention that before the restart, the command is launched

    sudo /home/pi/CumulusMX/cumulusmx.sh -q
    sudo shutdown -r now

    this to avoid a sudden closure of cumulus.

    What do you suggest ????

    Thank you!

    I'm using a similar setup - RPi Zero W, CumulusMX and a scheduled daily reboot at 0253

    I recently changed From Stretch to Buster, and from an earlier CumulusMX build to 3050,

    I have no such similar problem. In these examples, the RPi rebooted between the lines shown
    With the old system:

    Code: Select all

    and with the new:

    Code: Select all

    I don't know what your shutdown script (cumulusmx.sh) contains. It's not part of the distribution - so must be something you've added and may be the cause of your problem?

    All I do is run the standard reboot command

    Code: Select all

    sudo reboot
    from my crontab without stopping CumulusMX first. I believe this properly closes all running programs (or at least it tells them to close - but will still reboot if something has crashed).
