Re: Logs

Ok, Howard,
I am in over my head.
I found the three files inside /var/www/html/Databases (fcc_amateur.sql, index.php and station.sql).
I assume the “station.sql” is the only import I need to make, but where does it go? How and where does it get imported?

I am not familiar with phpMyAdmin, so I may skip that part for now.
I do have a backup of the SD card and the log files that I may need for Route 66. Nothing else matters much.
I believe I will try a clean set of tables if I can figure out all the paths.
 
Thanks for your help. I’ll let you know what happens.

Hi Les,

The problem I was having yesterday was caused by my use of a RigPi image that had its own problems.  Using the production image, I'm not seeing what you have reported. There are several ways we can figure out what is happening.

1) If you are comfortable using phpMyAdmin, you can export the Logbook, LogFields and LogStyles tables to sql format and send them to me?  My guess is that the LogStyles database may contain errors that are causing the log designer problem.  

2) There is a clean set of tables in /var/www/html/Databases folder.  You can import these tables which will overwrite all your existing data.  Be sure to export your existing station database first!

3) If you have a backup of your memory card, you can try using that to see if the problem exists.

Re: Stretch to Buster

Aaron Jones
 

Hi,

i upgraded from stretch to buster a couple months back and ran into a few problems.  This is roughly how I did it, I can post the Linux commands later tonight when I’m on my computer:

1. Ran the update scripts published on the web
2. Created two partitions on a new SD card so I could have a bigger BOOT partition.  It is a LOT easier to crest it at 500 meg from scratch than to try to resize a boot partition
3 copied the contents of the boot partition in old card to new card
4. Mirrored the second partition over to my new card and then Resized it using gparted on another Linux box

i had to fix a couple little things in the boot partition like the partition reference of my new card.  

I had to reinstall mumble with a new version but it worked perfectly and all rigpi software was fine. 

I also moved my second partition to an external SSD and this rpi4 is FAST.

Has anyone successfully upgraded from Stretch to Buster that could point me in the right direction? I googled of course and found a couple of methods, but neither worked out well for me.

Hi John,

From RigPi you can shut down processing, but not power.  There are power switching devices that can be switched on and off from the Internet independent of RigPi.  Take a look at Wemo devices, for example.

Re: Mumble connected on audio

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Hi Herb,

Check two things that can affect audio quality: 1) make sure you have set the snd proto device for the default audio device by right-clicking the speaker icon on the Raspberry Pi desktop, and, 2) look in Mumble Configure>Settings>Audio Input to make sure the noise reduction slider is all the way to the left (off).  If you make changes to Mumble, click apply then OK at the bottom of the settings window, then restart Mumble to have the settings stick.

Just FYI,

My FT-991A used menu item 106 (instead of 108) for SSB usage, and 109 (instead of 111) for the USB setting.

Remote Powerdown of Rigpi

johnpierce
 

On vacation when I was operating my KX3 remotely and decided to power the KX3 off, I could not figure out how to power the system down.  I just had to let an AC timer on the power supply remove power later in time to take the system down.  Is there a way I can exit/shutdown Rigpi after I have powered off my KX3?

Re: Mumble connected on audio

HERB KEATON N2GEW
 

Good Morning to all:

ICOM-756PRO 3

I am up and running with the RigPi and Mumble in my LAN. I changed over to the
ACC 1 connection, Howard, and the corresponding adjustment required to the RigPi header. 
I was heard OK on the air. I expect little trouble making the adjustments over
to WAN, but just sitting back and contemplating the best approach since the Asus Router
doesn't seem to support port translation. I will look into port triggering to see if that
will offer some enhanced security similar to the port translation recommended here.

I DID NOT go into SSB Data Mode on the radio to transmit or receive voice. I will have
to research this as I am not sure why the manual states this and how the receive audio
would work in that mode (?). And a Macro will need to be set to push the radio into SSB data mode?

While reports say the audio out was OK, I wasn't impressed with the quality of the
receive audio: Is there anything authoritative I can go to on settings for Mumble?

Thanks to all on the forum.

Joe,

There is a very thorough guide that includes using RigPi with the IC-7300 in the files section.
It may be overly thorough, but all of the information is there:

https://groups.io/g/RigPi/files/Homebrew%20Information%20from%20Users/RigPi%20Installation%20For%20Icom%20USB%20Radios.pdf

There is another guide too, with fewer details:

https://groups.io/g/RigPi/files/Rig%20Configuration%20Information/ICOM/ICOM%20IC-7300%20Setup.pdf

There is also a thread by Howard at:

https://groups.io/g/RigPi/message/442

There are a number of message threads on the IC-7300, you can find them using the search tool at the top if you use IC-7300 as the subject.
To answer your question directly would require a tad more info from you.
Which program are you asking about downloading?
If it is Plumble for the Android (that is the Android version of Mumble) you go to the Google Play store and download it from there.
Same for VNCviewer if that was what you are asking about.
Lots of folks ready to help.

Re: Need help setting up different radios

Janne Blomquist / SM5SUH
 

This morning when I started everything again the ALSA input fail was gone so my guess is that the connection between RigPi and IC-7200 was lost for some reason.

 

But the problem with connect to Mumble is still there. When I change the password in the ini file I cannot connect to the Mumble server anymore (of course have I changed the password in the client) but when I change back to the default password in ini file and client it works again?

 

Anyone have a clue?

Finally I get hold of the command to save and quit the Mumble ini file.

I paste the file path command from Help in to the terminal.

Moved to the serverpassword as mentioned in help and change it.

Use Ctrl + O to write out and exit and after that I cant connect to the Mumble server at all.

When it start up this text is showing.

1:45 PM] Welcome to Mumble.

[1:45 PM] Opening chosen ALSA Input failed: No such device

[1:45 PM] Opening chosen ALSA Output failed: No such device

[1:45 PM] Connecting to server rigpi.local..

[1:45 PM] Connected.

 

So now it safe alright, no one can use it including my self  HI
