With the new RFXtrx device... I am curious to know about its support and use in Linux.
I would want to be able to access it via C, BASH, maybe others....
What stops me from going further till I get some clarification is:
"install mono" BZZT!
Linux users do not install this tainted stuff. If thats only for those test programs fine, I just point minicom to at the port to see it working, but if the SDK and the device rely on its use for access, then I have a problem and most Linux users will have a problem.
So can this device be programmed and accessed without using the tainted mono stuff? via the USB serial device?
My primary goal is to receive Oregon Scientific sensors and add them to a program which right now natively works with WMR100, WRM200, RMS300, RMS600A OS receivers and streams the data.. The project has been dormant for over a year, and I would like to add to it to make it do things like WxU updates, use standard units v. non standard units for readings (done), compile on newer *bunutu (done, this is due to a change in default compiler settings in Debian down).
