RPi3, DummyRepeater, ircDDBGateway

ne3k@...
 

So moving this over here from the Yahoo! group, I am having a devil of a time getting a RPi3 up and running to use DummyRepeater and ircDDBGateway with a PiDV Board.


I've followed the AMBE Wiki directions that John sent, and have gotten AMBEServer running on the Pi3, as proven by the ambesocketest.py script giving me the expected returns.


ps ax | more gives the following:

I can get DummyRepeater and ircDDBGateway to work, but when I tell DR that I want to use AMA0 (the only option via DV3000 Serial) it freezes when I restart it. 


Any ideas, cause I've done just about everything I can think of, and know how to do.


Thanks,

Re: Hard drive

Jim <g7icd.jim@...>
 

Thank you John & Richard now booting from hard drive (via sd card)

cheers jim g7icd



Re: Hard drive

Richard - VE7CVS
 

Yes, you can use the SD card just to get the machine started. I do this and use a Solid State Drive (SSD) for a couple of my Pis - especially for servers that are 'always on', the SD card eventually gets fried with too many writes to the same locations for log files and such.

There's a set of instructions here:

https://learn.adafruit.com/external-drive-as-raspberry-pi-root/what-youll-need

You basically copy the SD filesystem to the hard drive, then alter the /boot/cmdline.txt file on the SD card to point to the hard drive.

Not trivial, but not really difficult either. You're welcome to contact me if you have problems doing it.

- Richard, VE7CVS

Now i have the dstar pi2 and thumbdv all working is there away i can transfer it all on to a harddrive (i have a 250g usb) so it uses the sd card for bootup but then reads all the other files from hard drive?

or is to much for a novide to do ?

cheers jim


Re: Hard drive

 

Here is a tutorial (I have not used this, but the concept is clear)

https://learn.adafruit.com/external-drive-as-raspberry-pi-root/overview

There is some work going on at Raspbian development to make network or external drive boot much easier.

Re: tx dummyrepeater

thanks Richard

will try that now i was using pin 5

cheers jim



Re: tx dummyrepeater

Richard - VE7CVS
 

This page has a good picture of the Raspberry Pi GPIO pinout.

http://www.raspberrypi-spy.co.uk/2012/06/simple-guide-to-the-rpi-gpio-header-and-pins/

The pins are definitely 1,3,5,7... in a row.

Re: tx dummyrepeater

Jim <g7icd.jim@...>
 

i found the post and tryed it yesterday i connected a wire to pin 3 but dummy repeater stopped working i have to reindtall the back up image now today i looked and i am a bit lossed

some images of the GPIO are 1 2 3 on bottom row or 1 3 5 on bottom row i used the 1st one 1 2 3 and it didn't work but do not want to try again until i can validate which pin is pin 3

cheers jim




tx dummyrepeater

Jim <g7icd.jim@...>
 

I read some were that you can but dummyrepeater into tx via pin 3 to grn via a 220k resister ?

if thats right what i do you set the the controller section too ?

my project is all starting to comming together now

cheers jim

Jim;


    thanks for getting this working ... I'll be playing around with your image in the next few days. I'm downloading it as I type. It appears to be on a slow connection as it's showing 43mins remaining. No worries there as long as it completes I'm good with that.


    I run my Thumb DV on my PC;  Windows 7 - works perfectly with WinDV Node -


 looking forward to testing it on the Pi -I have a spare one at the moment, as I upgraded my DV Mega hotspot to a Pi3.

I'll be sure and followup with my results ...


thanks 73's

Jim;


    thanks for getting this working ... I'll be playing around with your image in the next few days. I'm downloading it as I type. It appears to be on a slow connection as it's showing 43mins remaining. No worries there as long as it completes I'm good with that.


    I run my Thumb DV on my PC;  Windows 7 - works perfectly with WinDV Node -


 looking forward to testing it on the Pi -I have a spare one at the moment, as I upgraded my DV Mega hotspot to a Pi3.

I'll be sure and followup with my results ...


thanks 73's

Not sure if it's related but 1C reflector has been VERY problematic these last few days it had dropped link more than 20x yesterday, other operators confirming the troubles. 

   My dv mega hotspot reconnects/links automatically, but my winDV node with ThumbDV requires a manual connect.

You should be able to select NETWORK and the IP address and PORT of your AMBEserver.  No additional software (beyond AMBEserveer) required.
