New slug, new wview

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

My nslu2 (slug) died at the end of last month. I’m not sure if it was a hardware or a software fault but I have replaced it with a very cold stand-by I had purchased forĀ  just such an occasion. I backed-up the hard-disk used by the first slug; installed Debian Lenny from scratch; and took the opportunity to install wview 5.7.1 using the Debian install script. Everything just about worked fine (couple of minor issues: htmlgen was being killed by the process monitor before it had apparently got a chance to get going; the Archive and NOAA directories had to be manually created before wview could write any data to them). I have also registered with the AWEKAS weather service and installed the iPhone template.
