Having installed recently last available NorthWest digital radio imageGreat to hear Bernard.
Just after booting fresh new system I checked different applicationsYes, that's a good thing to do.
Then I decided to install Direwolf using n7nix script ~config/core-install.shdirewolf and many other programs (see list here:
come pre-installed on the nwdr14.img. Running the install scripts on
this image is not necessary and most likely will break things.
You can see a log of what is already installed here:
Currently you can switch between vhf/uhf packet & HF programs by
starting & stopping ax25 which also starts & stops direwolf and a number
of other daemons used by packet. ie mheardd
# Become root
See the "Getting Started Guide"
There is a message about libjpeg.so.9 file missing and Linux systemlibjpeg.so.9 is used by one of the hf programs probably fldigi. It gets
installed with the .n7nix/hfprogs/hf_install.sh script and lives in this
If you see a message that libjpeg.so.9 is missing then:
sudo apt-get install libjpeg9-dev
So I am asking the question about direwolf and fldigi compatibility ?I am currently using both direwolf & fldigi at the same time and it
works well using the split-channels instructions. I have a script that
installs split-channels but it needs some work.
You should understand that direwolf & the HF programs like to "own" the
sound card device and usually can only be run separately from one
anther. The split-channels instructions
(https://github.com/nwdigitalradio/split-channels) creates a virtual
sound card device using pulse audio for each of these different modem
programs to bind to.
