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

Read this:

The step where you run core

setups up your image & starts direwolf from systemd.
If you read to the bottom of the document you will learn the proper way
to stop & disable direwolf and the ax.25 stack.

Using killall leaves the ax.25 stack compromised and will give
unpredictable results later on.

Thanks for the killall direwolf suggestion but I seem to have deeper
issues. The response to that command was "direwolf: no process found"
I have downloaded the Draws beta6 image about 3 or 4 times on different sd
cards and direwolf does not seem to run, among other things. I do get the
usual desktop for rspbian stretch. Everything looks great. Ft8 and jso call
will not work. I have had them working before and I have made no other
changes to the setup except a new image burned onto ghe sd card. I am at a
loss. Must be the way I am burning it to the sd card. I am using etcher on
windows 10.

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?

Before you update your image capture your current alsamixer settings
somewhere. Just run ./n7nix/bin/ & make a copy of result.
