I have been working on a room temperature and humidity logger for an equipment room. I am using the DHT22 connected to the Rasberry PI.
I have implemented the code from Adafruit website and it works great from a shell command.
The problem I am encountering is that I would like to start the python script at boot up. I have not been able to find a successful way to start the python script at boot up. Since my Rasberry Pi will be in a remote area I would like the python script to start up every time at boot up.
I have used crontab and have created a script file which points to the python script, with no luck.
I have been able to execute other python scripts at boot up with out any problems, is their a trick to it since the python script is calling a C code.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
