Hi,

I have raspbian running correctly but I'm unable to installa wview package on my system, always says It can't find the package.

I've added theses lines to my sources list:

deb http://www.wviewweather.com/apt/wheezy wheezy main
deb-src http://www.wviewweather.com/apt/wheezy wheezy main

When I update It says that its impossible to obtain:

http://www.wviewweather.com/apt/wheezy/ ... f/Packages 404 Not Found

If I explore the route from www.wviewweather.com/... the folder binary-armhf doesn't exists, there is a folder called binary-arml

When I try to apt-get install wview system says the package doesn't exists...

Can anyone help me please? I'm stuck at the first step of using this weather station software...

Thanks a lot!

Exactly the same problem my end. Followed the instructions to install from the wview site and then ran apt-get update:

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old
ones used instead.


Some errors occurred during the update, but I ignored them and then went on to try and install wview with apt-get install wview:

root@raspberrypi:/home/pi# apt-get install wview
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package wview

Now stuck! I'm a complete noob when it comes to Linux, but trust me, I'm enjoying playing with my 2xPis. I'm now onto my 7th re-install of the base system, I'm learning every time!

Intention is to use a Pi as my primary PC to service my weather station onto Wunderground and the other to sit down with my son and just play around with it.

Any help in being able to install wview would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Darth,

In this link they have created a distro image just to flash on a 16gb sdcard with wview running:

http://forum.meteoclimatic.net/index.ph ... ic=11032.0

Forum is in spanish, maybe should use google translator.

See you

Hi, i made the image not to raspbian and thinking only in wview.

The link to download is:

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/70131852/Image ... 0Wview.rar

Remarks:
- The image is from Debian Squeeze (19-4-2012)
- SSH enabled
- Wview 5.20.2 installed and tested in simulation mode
- The image size is 16GB. Yes, you can resize it.
- Modified script /etc/init.d/wview due init errors after a power failure.
- Time Zone is UTC. Use "dpkg-reconfigure tzdata" to change it.
- Swap partition is enabled
- Two users active:
user: pi password: raspberry
user: root password: root (is not original, but i hate sudo command)

You must to do:

Y ¿que tiene que hacer el usuario?

- Wview configuration. Please, read the manual, Wview is easy to configurate and understand.
- Tune your Rasp. Delete servers and services you don't use.
- Change the root password. You can delete "root" user too.
- Add other users.
- Update Debian. Debian Squeeze is updated until 7-7-2012
- Change SSH Keys:
rm /etc/ssh/ssh_host*
dpkg-reconfigure openssh-server
- Edit /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts

Thanks for your interest....and remember.....IS NOT RASPBIAN.

Hello to all, I'm trying to install wview on my new Raspi, but without success (until now) :-(...

On the 1st attempt, I've followed the wview installation instructions, but (like already described on this post) the Raspi (that's running Rasbian) couldn’t found the package?!

So, I've downloaded the "distro" suggested by jpedrodias (I’m also from Pt ;-)), flash it due Win32DiskImager on a 4GB SD, to but Raspi simply doesn’t boot with it?!

I haven’t tried yet the “distro” from http://forum.meteoclimatic.net/index.ph ... ic=11032.0 because currently I doesn’t have a 16GB SD, but I guess that’s the best option, right?

Could someone, please, be so kind and help me to setup the wview (that will work with a PCE-FWS 20) on my PI?

Thank you so much.

Hi Wheel18

In the first instance I'd try to download Pedro's image again and use Win32 Disk Imager to burn onto you SD card, it worked fine for me, you could also try another SD card if you have one.

Hi Darth,

Thank you so much for your help. I've burned 2 different SD's (4 GB) with 2 different versions of Pedro’s “distro” (July and December 2012), but, Unfortunately, my PI didn’t boot with no one ... After burn the SD contains 55,9MB (22,2 free) of maximum capacity with the following files inside: arm128_start.elf, arm192_start.elf, arm224_start.elf, bootcode.bin, cmdline.txt, config.txt, issue.txt, kernel.img, kernel_cutdown.img, kernel_emergency.img, loader.bin, start.elf.

Is the content ok? There’s any additional step to allow the boot?

Usually I connect to my PI due to SSH (no display on it), but I’ve already connected a display and there’s no image at all with these “distro’s”?!

Help, please…

Oh my, how old (I'm thinking dinosaurs here) is that version of Linux that you've got on that SDCard?

It may be too historic for your hardware.

Nope, the version of Raspbian works with WVIEW installed, just tried it on a 2nd RPi.

The location I downloaded it from is here:

http://www.4shared.com/folder/prbKehRR/raspberrypi.html

The file structure of the SD card looks like the attached when the above is burnt using Win32 Disk Imager.

I would suggest that you have some form of screen attached to the RPi when you power up to see what exactly is happening, you will not be able to SSH into the RPi until the boot process has completed.

Hi Darth,

I’ve downloaded the distro from “your” link, burn the SD, but the result is the same (no boot). I’ve already connected the RPI to the display and I simply get nothing from it?! Definitely there’s something really strange happening here… You’ve tested on RPI version B, right?

@DougieLawson, I agree that’s a old kernel (I’m currently running raspberrypi 3.6.11+), but due to the poor free time (and lack of knowledge) I’m looking for a easy solution… Couldn’t install the wview on the current kernel release!

Thank you so much.

I'm at a loss, both my RPi's are version B (512) and both are working fine, one with the version from the link I gave you and my main WVIEW station with a previous image but updated/upgraded over time.

Was the file system on your burnt SD card the same as that shown on mine?

Hi Darth,

Yes, the burned SD was exactly the same structure than yours… But RPI doesn’t boot with it (only power led is on)?! What’s the size of your SD (I’m trying 4GB – only available for now)?

Now I've 2 ways. Burn the img from jantoni on a 16GB SD (need to buy) or try to understand why the wview installation fails (original topic problem).

Thank you so much.

My full-time WVIEW image is on a class 10 32Gb card but the one I burnt from the image I sent you was also burnt onto a 4Gb SD card (class 10). I've just tested the 4Gb card again, booted first time.

When you turn the Pi on (with the SD card installed) does anything happen at all?

Nothing happens with the 3 Pedro’s burned images (July/Dec 2012 and Feb 2013) on both SDs (4GB class 4 and class 6)! The only activity is the power led on… When turn RPI on with my main/original MOOB SD (8GB) everything is fine… that’s really strange!

One last try, you have installed the NOOBS onto the SD card (8Gb) try installing the basic version of Raspbian onto you 4Gb SD card from this site: http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads

and then scroll down to "2013-12-20-wheezy-raspbian.zip", download and use Win32 Disk Imager to burn to your 4Gb SD card and see if that works, if not, then I would suggest that your card is a fault here.

Tested... and RPI boots fine! So, definitely the problem is not the SD! There’s any other source (dropbox or something else) with these images?

Thank you so much.

I'm afraid I do not know of any other Raspbian images with WVIEW pre-installed.
