Re: Linbpq Problem

Michael WA7SKG
 

"installWebMail" is the script that was running. The error message indicated line 40 of the installWebMail script threw the error. Line 40, quoted in my message is "./linbpq --adduser RMS "" TRUE" resulted in the File not found error, stating that the file linbpq was not found.

As it turned out, the binary file linbpq was a 32 bit file and the computer is a 64 bit system. Once I installed the necessary 32 bit libraries, the file executed as it should.

I think that error means 'installWebMail' was not found.
Referencing in line 40 of your install script.
Does 'installWebMail' exist on your file system?
if yes, where.
Maybe share line 40 of your install script.

there is a service definition for pat, here:

I have 2 issues but I'll only post one.

I've used KM4ACK build but on the SD card. Pat will TX but on RX it's deaf. I went to Alsamixer and notice that F4 there is no Mic or Capture. 
I've updated and upgraded and still nothing.

Any ideas

Gpredict cannot connect to Yaesu FT817

Ron Liekens
 

I like to track the frequency of a FT817 to compensate the Doppler shift with Gpredict but I cannot get them communicate via CAT.

The FT817 does work fine with FLrig and FLdigi via CAT.

Any suggestions on how to get this running?

Thanks to many folks here for assistance.
It turned out that someone had registered my callsign for me about a year ago
but did not register an email address.

 I found a Winlink adminstrator and they gave me a one-time access code.
I have my Winlink password and my (recovery) email address is registered.
Pshew! :-)

 With great assistance from a local Winlink (and AREDN mesh) user we
have been able to send and receive Winlink-style mail over the mesh network
using the built-in P2P telnet port each of us using a RPi.

 One more item is sought after;
establish a dual port local ARDEN mesh and AX.25 mail gateway so that
Winlink (or 'pat') users on the local AX.25 simplex packet channel can
send and receive with the AREDN mesh Winlink ( or 'pat') users.

  I am now running 'pat' on a RPi4 on a microSD card.
The SD card partitions are static totalling 2.1G.
I think I can create an image the same size as the 2020-09-26-raspbian-buster-lite
image with a generic turnkey 'pat' setup. I did this with 'teamtalk-v5.4-armhf'.
The image will likely 'gzip -9' down to about 555M.
The Raspbian automatic 'resize2fs' may be easily restored.

From the Winlink website: https://winlink.org/tags/password

If you’re using a dWinlink e-mail client program other than Winlink Express you must follow these steps:

  1. Go to www.winlink.org, and select the My Account tab.
  2. If you haven’t previously selected a password, select one now. Otherwise log in.
  3. Navigate to the screen that lists your account information, and click “Edit”.
  4. Scroll down and enter your password-recovery e-mail.
  5. Check the box to enable Secure Login.
  6. Click “Save” at the bottom of the screen.
  7. Last, find the place in your client program where you can enter your password, and set it. /Basil n7nix

Yes use a different card for what you want to do. Just power down and swap cards and power up. 
Just make notes on what you do for each card.

I guess what I'm asking is that if you install one operating system can you pull that card and put a different sd card in?

Re: Linbpq Problem

Michael WA7SKG
 

I ran the install script a number of times in different directories, all with the same results. I did eventually run the "file linbpq" command and discovered I was trying to run a 32-bit file on a 64-bit system. After installing the various 32-bit libraries it now works as advertised. I guess what threw me was the "No such file" error when, in fact, it was a 32/64-bit library issue.
