Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

I've been looking at switching to WeeWX, runs on any Unix system - I'm planning to use an ODroid N2 or XU4, much better hardware than a Pi and with eMMC storage if you're worried about data safety - and supports the Meteostick which is needed to get data off Davis sensors. Currently my Frankenkernel...

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

Development seems to have switched mostly to the Meteobridge/Bridge Pro. I haven't tried the Frankenkernel hack for the Pi 4, but I would imagine it'd be even more hairy than on the 3B+. So the only way to run it on a Pi, unless you're prepared to go the Frankenkernel route which means never being a...

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

Entries with /home/meteohub/msmtprc are correct, because I compared it my other running meteohub RPi installation on Raspberry3 without the +. Here's a guess, because the Meteohub images are running very old distros it could be that whatever Meteohub is expecting isn't there any more in a current d...

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

today I did the MH update, 5.1b was installed and that is the sad outcome Yeah, that's the problem, once you've got MH running on a 3B+ using the Frankenkernel approach you can never update it, because the official MH image still doesn't appear to support the 3B+. So the Frankenkernel approach work...

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

A general note to people trying the Frankenkernel approach, the old images I prepared some time ago are now rather out of date, so rather than trying to find equally old drivers that match the kernel, you'd be better off creating a new image from the current kernel release and current drivers and us...

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

Does anyone have an updated stats on whether the Frankenkernel hack still works with current kernel releases? In other words using the latest kernel image and drivers off the Github repository along with the latest Meteohub release, is this still possible? Note that you'll need to grab both the late...

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

I'm not the admin, but no, it doesn't. The 3B+ isn't compatible with the 3B, and 5.0s doesn't run on the 3B+.

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

I assume it'll be the same problem as with the Meteostick drivers, the combination of the very old kernel image that Meteohub ships with and the updated kernel files in the Frankenkernel configuration means that the Wifi drivers aren't loaded. You could try and find more recent drivers that match th...

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

In your procedure, you tell to copy rpi-firmware-master.zip after SSH on the booted rpi. Could you tell how you copy it ? If I understand well, the SD card is running on the Raspberry Pi and I don’t know how you can copy the zip file since it is only downloadable from another computer (such a PC).....

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

So just to repeat those steps: Download the latest rpi-firmware-master.zip. Copy the contents of /boot, including subdirectories, onto /boot on the SD card. Put the SD card in the Pi and boot it (hopefully). SSH in to the booted Pi and copy rpi-firmware-master.zip onto the system. Follow the driver ...

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

- Downloaded meteohub image (5.0s) and wrote it on the SD (8gb) with Win32disk image. - Then downloaded the rpi-updated-image, copied the files from "overlays" file and pasted (and replaced) the files on the meteohub image (previously wrote on the SD card) - 3rd I downloaded firmware-master and rep...

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

It's now up at this location. Note that this gives you a bootable kernel, to add the drivers needed for things like the Meteostick you need to follow the instructions in this post.

Re: HOWTO: Run the Meteohub image on the Pi 3B+: Meteohub Frankenkernel edition

Ah, sorry, that's a free-upload site that deletes files after awhile. Let me find somewhere else to use.

Alternatively, if someone has a random server availably to host things I can post it there.
