the next update of WD will have the code in place to check if the resulting windchill was higher than the temperature (and so its set as the temperature)
that 1 line of code was missing from the tag code

WD for Linux / WeatherDisplay - migrate everything from W10 to *Nix wdconsole
« Last post by apdmc6008 on July 18, 2018, 03:35:30 AM »
Greetings -

I've been poring over the forums but can't find a definitive guide on how to copy a functioning Windows 10 install of Weather Display to (what appears to be) a functioning WD Console install on Ubuntu. I say that it appears to be functioning because I get it to load, but then it just sits there.

I'm not sure how to get the settings out of the Win version and into the Ubuntu version. This is the 16.04 LTS version, no GUI. It looks like the config.txt and the wdconsole.ini are lacking a LOT of things to configure as in the Windows version. I do know I need to copy over the data and the log directory contents.

Any help would be most appreciated! Thanks in advance..

Weather Station Equipment / Re: Davis Vantage Pro 2 longevity?
« Last post by aardvark on July 18, 2018, 02:35:47 AM »
having a mac has produced for me a lot of complications.   Being very close to 71,  I don't see a need to purchase a PC, which would solve everything for me.  I use the API from the weatherlink Ip to update my site and Weatherdisplay/weathercat for my personal needs.

Back to the topic,  the station has changed very little since it came out.  The plastic is sturdy and perhaps with the main station, the solar panel tends over time to fog over and sometimes the film over it cracks, holes. Davis claims it is ok.   The foam plug where the cables enter the transmitter tends to get crunchy and needs to be replaced.    Those FARS, the fans need to be replaced as does the batteries.  I have the solar and UV sensors and the leveling bulbs have dried out, so I use a level.   It is a sturdy station, and it depends on the conditions. Harsh climates will have it toll on it.  But for the most part, yes it is sturdy.

A while ago Davis asked what people would like to see in a newer model. I said a color console, but I don't know if anything happened.  the new rain cone with the anti bird has worked for me.  Yeah, it is a good station.

I ordered a VP when it was announced in late 2000, but Davis didn't manage to produce it until some months into 2001. They did send a nice "we screwed up" apology letter  :)

As I recall the original Vantage Pro was introduced in 2000 so if you have a station from 1993 it's not a VP2, or a VP.

I know I had a WMII, and then the VP1.  I recall I had a tough time with the signal getting to my logger. I used a lot of repeaters.  Then the VP2 came out and I sprang for it.   You are very correct on the date,   If you can measure from when the WMII gave up and now, that is a lot of time.
