Cumulus with Raspberry Pi new setup question
« on: April 09, 2016, 11:14:59 AM »
Toxic, Hang in there and hopefully your posting problem will be resolved.

I've been running Cumulus for several years and recently switched from a power hungry oversized PC to a little Raspberry Pi running the new CumulusMX. I had a few minor setup issues and in all cases, Steve responded within hours or less with a solution.

This is off topic, but I am looking at getting Raspberry Pi to run CumulusMX for my station.

I'm confused what exactly I need to purchase, could you enlighten me?



Thanks,

Gary

Do you have any experience with the Raspberry Pi?

No, I don't, but it looks perfect for what I need it to do. Saves running a desktop just to upload my PWS data.

Thanks for the links, I will check them out.
