Re: sudo apt-get install ambeserver


I have updated instructions at

The 'roll your own' (e.g. non-Compass Linux) approach, assumed familiarity with the target sufficient to fill in the 'blanks'.

Like most Linux/Unix command line programs, placing the help flag will expose flags, e.g. AMBEserver -h 

The 3 parameters that may need adjusted are the device, e.g. /dev/ttyUSB0, the speed, e.g. 460800, and the UDP port it will listen on, e.g. 2640.

The instructions are still sparse, but the components are now downloadable to fill in the blanks.

I am pretty sure the ThumbDV I am using is of the second generation, so it doesn't need to be forced to the 460800 baud rate. I had forgot about that requirement for some people, but as you said, it can also be done from the command line.

At the moment I don't have anything running on the Pi/ThumbDV board, but AMBEserver. It is now a custom version, since I added the code to have it write out status to the syslog file, but I never got around to writing a sys.d file since I was starting and stopping custom versions all the time. 

I personally use Buster to connect to reflectors with the setup. (I'm primarily a Mac/Linux person)
