Re: Cant compile fldigi on Beta9 #fldigi

Basil Gunn

I download the fldigi source from
for the DRAWS image which has fldigi version at 4.1.01
What repository are you using to get

I use the script at n7nix/hfprogs/ to show the latest
versions of all the hf HAM programs on the DRAWS image. You can use -u to update all the hf programs to their current
version. They change weekly.

Before you build from source you will need to increase the swap file
size in config file: /etc/dphys-swapfile


then reboot.
Verify swap file size with

swapon -s
or run
n7nix/hfprogs/ -s

The DRAWS beta 9 image comes with FLDIGI-4.0.18 installed. There are
much newer FLDIGI release available so I tried to compile and install
FLDIGI- and that failed. I downloaded the
FLDIGI- to /usr/local/src directory where I also found
the original fldigi-4.0.18.tar.gz The ./configure runs fine and
doesn't show any errors. The "make" command produces an error at the
end of its compile. I was successful in compiling and installing
flamp- using the procedure I followed for fldigi. I did un
comment sources file in /etc/apt/sources.list and up dated the apt
package cache with sudo "aptitude update". I also updated "aptitude
install build-essentials" and "aptitude build-dep fldigi"

Has anyone had success with beta 9 and the new fldigi releases?

Following the described procedure above on a plain Raspbian Stretch
current release on a different PI 3B+ I was able to compile and
install FLDIGI- without issue.

I am looking for some guidance on how to get the more recent versions
of fldigi installed and operating on DRAWS,
