Re: Configuring W3DJS V1.0 Direwolf questions.

Thanks for jumping in to help David. Here are some data dumps from the RPI:
Direwolf startup dialog:
 
Dire Wolf DEVELOPMENT version 1.6 G (Jun 18 2020)

Yes, I had already set up: sudo usermod -G dialout k1ypp
 
The only error message I see is the one I originally posted.
 
In Fldigi I use the Rigcat or Hamlib configs, either works. They use /dev/ttyUSB0 device, which is the Yaesu CAT-62 cable.
 
I was aware that Direwolf uses it's own hamlib. If I do a list of rigs (rigctl --list):
 
  1020  Yaesu    FT-817            20200616.0      Stable      RIG_MODEL_FT817
  1021  Yaesu    FT-100            20200323.0      Beta        RIG_MODEL_FT100
  1022  Yaesu    FT-857            20200323.0      Stable      RIG_MODEL_FT857
  1023  Yaesu    FT-897            20200607.0      Stable      RIG_MODEL_FT897
 
 
W3DJL builds the whole ham package into one .iso build and I burned an SD card with it. It is built with hamlib, WSJT-X, Fligi, etc. I haven't been able to figure out exactly where it keeps the hamlib data. Somehow, it must not be using the hamlib data correctly, but I don't understand how.

Anyway, I'll keep trying. I can't believe that I am the only one that has run into this.
