Re: Can't upgrade buster

jcusick
 

I hope the problem has been solved, but thought I'd add another simple fix to this.

I ran into the same problem a few weeks after installing buster, even after doing an initial update/upgrade when first loaded.

All I did was do an "apt-get purge vlc-bin", then "apt-get install vlc-bin".

Problem solved.

Got the same response as you on the system to command. Of course that’s the one that connected this am

The other one that isn’t seeing WiFi this morning it has a STOPPED state gives the same return

Ran into something unique to me this morning. Downloaded fresh copy of Buster and flashed to card. Booted pi and ran the usual sudo apt-get update. Then ran sudo apt-get upgrade which failed. (See screenshot.) Ran sudo apt-get full-upgrade which seems to have overcome this issue. Anyone else run into this on a fresh install?

i too saw that message but just got rid of it tonight.
I think I fixed it by putting the correct hamlib info in the pat configure file and starting hamlib first.

Re: Seeking insights -- trying to get IC7300 to transmit Ardop via PAT

John Wiseman
 

I assume you've replaced device in the command line with your device name (/dev/ttyUSB0).

Also make sure your 7300 is configured to allow PTT using the RTS signal on the control port.

I don't think it will work if you also have rigctld running.

The alternative, using --cat and k FEFE94E01C0001FD -u FEFE94E01C0000FD should also work.

Thanks, Mike. Here is the script that I have been trying:

./piardopc 8515 plughw:1,0 plughw:1,0 -p device

The 7300 transmits, but does not alternate to RX (so that the target station reply could be heard). It simply stays in transmit and sends transmission every few seconds. I have to use Control-C to interrupt.

Any ideas how to make the TX alternate with RX?

BTW, here is my rigctld script:

rigctld -m 373 -r /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 9600

Thanks again.

Check the unlinked from remote in the ci-v section. I think I had to change this to get it to work correctly.

Re: IC-7300 for ARDOP / WinLink with Pi4

You are describing the same use I want to give to my Pi but I’m not as far along as you. I got wrapped around trying to make it compact for my go bag. 

To your question, it seems to me it is failing on a TCP connection before transmission occurs. Is that correct? How fast does the error comes? I’ll admit a a total newbie on this but the syntax makes me think it is trying to use IPv6 instead of IPv4 to connect (or to configure ARDOP?). Is that a possibility?

I'm able to control the Pi using VNC server / connect and have Flrig / Fldigi installed and working somewhat well. I've been able to send messages using Telnet (essentially, just using WiFi).

I've been using several of Jason Olham's KM4ACK videos (which have been quite helpful), but his video working through installation of ARDOP (  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgqsTbxzR4E&t=238s  ) was made using a Yaesu model of radio and a Signalink sound card.

I posed this basic question to Mr. Oleham and he was kind enough to direct me to this group for possible assistance.

Re: IC-7300 for ARDOP / WinLink with Pi4

John Wiseman
 

I'm not clear form your description if you are running PAT on your local pc and trying to connect to ARDOP on the PI, or running both on the PI.

The message "2020/01/13 13:29:54 ARDOP TNC initialization failed: dial tcp [::1]:8515: connect: connection refused" shows that PAT is trying to connect to an IPv6 address ( ::1 is the IPv6 loopback address, same as  127.0.0.1 on IPv4). ARDOP doesn't support IPv6, so you need to use an IPv4 address wherever PAT is running, 127.0.0.1 for a local connection or the IP address of the PI for remote.

I suspect you have to configured  to connect to localhost. Normally on a PI localhost resolves to the IPv6 address ::1.

73,
John G8BPQ


shows that PAT is trying to connect to ARDOP on your local PC, not on the PI ( the [::1] is the IPv6 loopback address, similar to 127.0.0.1 on IPv4). You need to configure PAT to connect to the IP address of the PI.

The sound card is in the signalink. it generates the ptt signal going to the radio. make sure you have the jumper in the signalink correct for your radio.
