Re: Cant turn off direwolf and ax25 #draws #direwolf #ax25 #configuration #management

John and Basil,


Good point on the appropriate scripts (not just killing direwolf)! I will be loading Beta 6 later today…


Suggestion: Is there any way these script functions can be put into/called by a “DRAWS/udrc control panel” app?


As it was in Beta 5, having Basil’s scripts scattered between ~/bin, ~/n7nix/bin, and ~/n7nix/debug made doing the set up and testing a bit of a challenge. Jumping around the different pieces of the directory tree made for some interesting “not found” errors.


Good work guys! We really appreciate what you are doing.

This will leave the AX.25 stack in a weird state, please use Basil's scripts to start and stop AX.25 and it will start/stop direwolf.


If you start direwolf without AX.25, then it can be stopped without AX.25

I noticed that killing direwolf on Compass Linux beta 1.5,  ax.25 interface udr0 and udr1 are removed freeing access to draws sound card.

sudo killall direwolf

is a quite simple command indeed.

I am a newbie to RPi and linux. 

I have the beta6 installed and running. I cannot seem to be able to stop direwolf and ax25 so that ft8 and js8call will get access to the draws sound card.

I entered



cd bin

sudo su 



The pi returns the command prompt but not anything like "ax25 has stopped".

I see the correct sound card input and output codec in the settings for these programs (ft8 and js8call) but no audio from the ft817 radio. I had this working before. What am I missing?
