Re: Draws #xastir

First you need to enable the RPi on-board sound device in
/boot/config.txt. Not sure why we don't do that by default. Then use
the proper device in Xastir. I have some notes here:

The wav files should already be installed in /usr/share/xastir/sounds.

What are you using for a sound device? Is it built into an LCD display
or is it a powered speaker?

Getting sound to work in Xastir has nothing to do with direwolf.

I'm learning. I know it some setting in direwolf.conf. I did see
mycall in the config file.
