Meteohub on a standard Pentium-Mainboard (P5A-B)

Post by ulbr2000 » Mon Dec 08, 2008 12:36 pm

Hello,

my Meteohub is running on a Standard Pentium-Mainboard, the ASUS P5A-B.
Used components are:
- a 10GB - 2,5" Notebook harddisk
- 380MB RAM
- AMD K6-3/500 Processor
- WLAN

The installation was mainly done according to the document
"HowTo Build a Meteohub Image (x86).pdf".

Unfortunally the board is not able to boot from USB-stick, so I had to use floppy disks for the Debian installation.
The installation of Meteohub went smootly using
"STEP 3: Install additional Packages"
of the above document from USB-Stick.

Weather station is a TE923/Nexus, connected via the USB connector of the P5A-B.

Power consumption is not as low as with a NSLU or with an eBox, nevertheless satisfying (18W).

bye

Hello,

did you use the standard Debian etch'n half installation as described or did you install it differentially? (I see other posts from you describing an X11 system).

If the installation was done in a different way this would make support nearly impossible due to the resulting implications.

My suggestions would be:
- follow the instructions of the meteohub documentation
- install Debian etch'n half
- use version 3.2 of meteohub

and it should work.

By the way: if you have a 80GB harddisk and 80GB in hda1 there is no place for swap left :unsure: ?

regards
