Instructions: Installing CumulusMX on Raspberry Pi

From build 3044 the development baton passed to Mark Crossley. Mark has been responsible for all the Builds since. He has made the code available on GitHub. It is Mark's hope that others will join in this development, but at the very least he welcomes your ideas for future developments (see Cumulus MX Development suggestions).

Restore your windows machine to a previous system restore point?

I figured it was most likely something that went wrong with the pi end of things since putty had worked fine for the previous half dozen times I'd used it.

I was wondering if there would be any way to confirm an error in the steps I took or troubleshoot to find out what's wrong. I could always start over but I was hoping not to have to go that route. Could I redo previous steps?

You also wrote (previous message)
I think I messed up installing FIlezilla as I got a virus popup from Defender, to which I removed the "virus". I'm guessing I may have deleted a false positive and a critical file which messed something up...
That sound pretty much like windows to me.

And sure you can repeat any steps, but if you have no clue of what's the problem, you might just as well start over again. Especially because you can't get into the RPi again.
Maybe that's the best idea anyway because communicating trying to look for an error takes a lot of time. Trying all over, even two or three times might be a lot cheaper (in time). Learning by trial and error. Happens once in a while to the best.

The "Network error: connection timed out" means that Putty or Filezilla [you don't say which one is failing?] has failed to 'find' your Raspberry Pi.

Here are some things to try before starting again:

If your error during installation of Filezilla was the cause of the problem, Filezilla probably would not have run at all, and/or would not have been successful in communicating with the RPi in previous steps. So I'm doubtful that this is the cause. You could try uninstalling/reinstalling Filezilla, but that would not be my first step.

Have you got the wrong IP address for the RPi? Check that you have got it right. It is possible that your router has assigned a new IP address for some reason, so look again at your router's information and check you are using the correct IP address. Of course also be sure you are using the correct username and password (the updated one you chose earlier).

Or maybe you made an error in the step where you added the information about your WiFi network and password into the wpa_supplicant.conf file? If you gave the Rpi the wrong details, it will not have connected to your wifi - then not surprising that Filezilla or Putty does not find it, and when you looked at the router information in the step above, you will not see the RPi at all. If this is the case, you can just use your PC to add the wpa_supplicant.conf file onto the SD card again [the old copy will have disappeared]. It's OK to repeat this step at any time.

Good luck and fingers crossed!

First off, thanks for your help with this.

Before you posted this I had decided to just go ahead and start over from the start. Unfortunately i got the exact same result which is where I'm at at this moment. I agree with you that I don't believe it to be an error with Filezilla either as it worked fine on the attempted reinstall.

I checked my IP address which hadn't changed.

As far as the correct username and password, well I can't even get to that point as it seems like putty can't even communicate with the RPI.

I ejected the sd card to check the wpa_supplicant.conf for ssid and password but I can't even see that under the boot drive any longer, does it get overwritten when installing Cumulus? Or is it located somewhere else now?

The last thing that went somewhat sideways on my that may have affected this was when I attempted to install Mono, I copied and pasted the code and hit enter. I don't recall exactly what it said but at the end something like it would require some disk space and asked if I wanted to proceed? Y/n
When I hit Y, it came back with: Abort

Thanks again for your assistance and encouragement.

Edit: Part of my problem was that I didn't use quotes for my wifi said and password so it's connecting now. I just can't seem to start Cumulus and still believe Mono didn't install correctly. Just my hunch.

Well that's the first step solved!

Yes, sounds like mono did not install. You can check by entering
mono -V
which asks for the Version number and should respond something like:
pi@Cumulus:~ $ mono -V
Mono JIT compiler version 5.18.0.240 (Debian 5.18.0.240+dfsg-3 Sat Apr 20 05:16:08 UTC 2019)
Copyright (C) 2002-2014 Novell, Inc, Xamarin Inc and Contributors. www.mono-project.com
TLS:
SIGSEGV: normal
Notifications: epoll
Architecture: armel,vfp+hard
Disabled: none
Misc: softdebug
Interpreter: yes
LLVM: supported, not enabled.
Suspend: preemptive
GC: sgen (concurrent by default)

If mono isn't installed, you'll get an error message. You can try the mono installation step again. Needing to answer Y/n is expected, but there should not be an 'Abort' message.

Finally, yes it is normal for wpa_supplicant.conf to disappear after the RPi has booted. The RPi moves it to a different location.

Good luck

No idea, but I had this too. When rerun I just pressed 'Enter' (and thus using the default).
That worked for me. So: don't press 'Y' followed by 'Enter', just: 'Enter'.

pi@raspberrypicumulus:~ $ mono -v
-bash: mono: command not found
This isn't the cause of your problem, but just to note it needs to be capital V in

Code: Select all

mono -V

Thanks for this, it worked for me!

Now I'm able to run putty to connect to the pi, I've opened the http://*:8998/ and get the Cumulus web interface.
I'm trying to set up a VP2 via a Weatherlink Live console so I configure the follwing...
Settings/Station settings/

Select my station type/
Select TCP/IP
Enter my WWL IP address
How do I find my TCP for the WWL?

Does this sound correct so far?

You shouldn't need to, CumulusMX should find it for you. Assuming you mean WLL ;)

So I entered the IP for the Weatherlink Live but don't I have to enter a TCP value? Otherwise it says 0 and I get no station reporting.

Man I feel so close...but so far. :D

Edit: I'm not sure if I really understand the connection for devices now. Before I had the Pi I used Cumulus to connect to my laptop.
The VP2 connected to the WWL which then fed data to Cumulus running on my PC.
Now the VP2 connects to the WWL which will then feed data to the Pi? Then the data will be viewable from the Cumulus web interface on my PC?

I just don't have it straight in my mind unfortunately.

Which TCP value? The port? CMX should automatically populate that with 22222 if you select the WLL as your station type.

I still don't have a connection unfortunately. Do I have to configure anything under the Weatherlink Live in Cumulus like api's or anything?
