CentOS and the Davis Instruments Vantage Pro 2

We recently upgraded a 13-year-old Davis Instruments weather station to the Vantage Pro 2.  Our old homegrown code wouldn’t work with the new hardware, so we had to find something we could use to get readings off the device.

Enter Andrew McMillan’s superb perl code, which handles all the communications with the Vantage Pro.  We just needed it packaged up for CentOS 5, along with a couple minor fixes (timezone and imperial unit handling).

Here is the RPM and the source RPM.
