Rob, "APi repo" ?  Is that something you or I need to work on?

Re: AtomicPi install problem

Rob Robinett
 

yes, but it should be installed automatically by WD.
Perhaps the APi repo don't have it.

Feedback of unusual fault today...

ON5KQ
 

Happy new year to everybody...

As I was focused on family matters today, I didn't pay attention to what happened with the wsprdaemon-receivers. This afternoon however I was astonished of rather less spots than usual reported - especially 40m and up was lacking considerably.
At first I thought some problem with the antenna or feed system occurred, however I found a rather unusual error message I have never seen before.

I checked the file
wsprdaemon/uploads.d/wsprnet.d/spots.d/uploads.log

It showed the following message:
-----------------------------------------------------
tr: write error: Broken pipe
tr: write error: Broken pipe
tr: write error
/home/on5kq/wsprdaemon/wsprdaemon.sh: line 3420: echo: write error: Broken pipe
-----------------------------------------------------


I stopped wsprdaemon with
wsprdaemon.sh -z

Note: before stopping wsprdaemon only the first line was showing in the upload.log file.... The next three lines were added after I stopped wsprdaemon

Then I restarted WD again with
wsprdaemon.sh -a
and as result all works normal again now.

However according to Phil's website there was a 90min gap, where there was no upload at all from ON5KQ
Strange also, that there was nothing stored locally on my PC, not yet uploaded, but waiting for upload.

I want to report it, as it might be important to help the system get more robust (wsprnet.org <--> wsprdaemon.org <--> VK7JJs site and others

I have no idea where this problem came from... may be another glitch at wsprnet.org ??

Ulli, ON5KQ


Re: Ubuntu 20.04 --- no git

John
 

I reinstalled the Ubuntu Full version and all installed. wsprdaemon only needs me to edit the config file.
I will need to clean out all the extra apps and folders to get some space back.
Thanks for the help again.

I had instilled the Lite version of Desktop. I will try again tomorrow with the Full version.


Re: Ubuntu 20.04 --- no git

Rob I tried that even with the --fix-missing switch but it still failed for some libraries.

Execute “sudo apt install git”

Re: Atomic Pi

John
 

Thank you Stu.
The common  passwd root command worked well.
Now I am on to my next problem: I cannot set a static IP4 address. I have used the Preference | Network connections pannels
but the system does not honor my settings. I still have a DHCP assignment. I have posted this issue over on the Atomicpi forum but
I am hoping there are more active users here that might know the magic required. I tried to use the root ID but I get
"mesg: ttyname failed: inappropriate loctl for device".

Atomic Pi

John
 

I would like to use Atomic Pi to run Wsprdaemon. I am having problems getting started.
Atonic Pi comes with Lubuntu 18.04, the current version is 20.04. I have not found any documentation for 18.04.
I have been able to change the startup password. When I try to set a static IP I am asked for the Root password.
I have tried the common I know. null, and Root did not work.  Does anyone know the startup Root PW?

John,

By the sound of things you are well ahead of me with the RSP integration. Still planning to give Openwebsdr a try although I need a second Pi for this really,

In the short term I now have WSJT-X and SDRUNO running on an old laptop, with frequency hopping enabled to pick up a few bands not covered by my Kiwi.  Will try something a bit cleverer in due course, but right now I'm told I need to tidy the garage...

Regards,

WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux)

Stu C
 

After dabling with WSL I decided to see if wsprdaemon would install and run under Win 10 pro VM with Ubuntu 20.04.
The answer is it does install and run but here I did not have great success uploading spots.

Long story short, don't try unless you have a specific reason, or are happy to lose an hour or two.

The issue here was that as I was seeing no spots while it was hitting the CPU hard, to the point of difficulty using Win10, I decided to stop wsprdaemon but it didn't like to stop (usual -z) might just have been CPU but it seemed to lock. In the end I terminated the WSL ubuntu and set it to not run in the background *.

I went back to the other Ubuntu VM but the Kiwi's were showing the wrong IP (the one I just stopped) a few network checks and switch reboots later I realised (*) Win 10 had fired up another WSL instance and even though I had renamed conf file (.c0nf) it was running in the background (cached service?) grabbing the slots before the real Ubuntu could get them. I'm not 100% I didn't have two instances of the same Ubuntu running at once, if that is even possible.

I'm only posting this as a cautionary tale, it does install but the WSL overhead seems to be quite heavy and it is a bit harder to tame.

For someone locked to Windows who wants to try a few wsprdaemon slots on physical Win10 it might be fine, I expect the reporting issue was a network problem which should be fixable.

Merry Christmas to all
Stu

I am following your lead in the same effort to get my RSP2Pro to work 6 Meters. I installed the version 7 PI image on  a 8G Pi4. I learned the hard way to not use Etcher to build the image. The new image files have a card builder included. Just run the image download file and it does the build to the card. I have the CubicSDR working with my 2Pro. I see that there are Soapy info included in the CubicSDR start up. I also have WSJT-X 2.2.2 installed but have not found a common Rig setting to get linked. I am off to read the CubicSDR manual now. Poor Rob R has had a "Hair-on-Fire week". I am watching rot a new version of wsprdaemon.

Re: Sdrplay RSP1A

Wspdaemon uses the kiwirecorder.py python program to record the audio output of the Kiwi channels.
I have no experience with using kiwirecorder with OpenWebSDR

Many Thanks Rob, I will resist the temptation to play with it until then...

BTW, was I right that OpenWebSDR is too different to Kiwi for Wsprdaemon to be able to talk to it as if it were a kiwi?

vk7jj, WSPR Watch and other users of wsprdaemon.org should now be reporting all spots in wsprnet.org

Rob Robinett
 

I have found and fixed a problem with the scraping of the wsprnet.org spot data.
It appears that recently the wsprnet.org servers have become more heavily loaded and as a result they are frequently taking longer than 10 seconds to respond to my scrape requests.
By increasing my timeout from 10 to 120 seconds, I am getting data from almost all of my requests.
Please let me know if you find spots in wsprnet.org that are not reported by wsprd.vk7jj.com
