i have managed to learn enough debian with the help of google, well not actually enough, but enough to want to learn more.
i have managed to add the wview sources to install.
i have managed to get wview working briefly..
it took me a while to figure out the sudo rm /var/lib/wview/*.pid to allow it to start.
I am having issues with USB changing, i understand that even if i never re-plus devices it will still change, so i need to lock them down, looking into this i have found

these are ment for ubuntu and the vantage weather stations but i will try and learn enough from them to work with debian/usb fine offset
also i have sussed out putty and ssh into my pi from my desktop machine using http://www.simonthepiman.com/how_to_set ... access.php
so now i dont have to type lines and lines, i can now copy and paste, and there are no longer wheel marks in the carpet going back and forth from one desk to the other!!
i do have a 7"? touch screen monitor hanging around from my experiments with a carputer, am wondering if i can put that, weather station and rPi on a nice bit of shiny wood and hang in the hall?
Do i really need a monitor though? wview isnt like cumulus, there is no desktop app. I could just use one USB for weather station and the other for a webcam
I wonder how many time i will format my sd card before i have a nice stable working weather station system - about to go for format no. 4
