Hi Ted

As I mentioned earlier I am unable to test new configurations at the current time. (I have a vision problem for the last couple of months and my test systems are not immediately available due to being between permanent residences - staying in an apartment.)

So you have a few paths, if you didn't backup your SD Card.

1. Use the images on http://www.compasslinux.org/images -- these are on the older version of Raspbian with a driver that is loaded outside of the kernel.

2. Use Basil's images at http://images.nwdigitalradio/download  -- these are current 'Buster' Raspbian, with a bunch of pre-loaded software.  Basil has a lot of scripts to help configure applications, but not the D-STAR applications.  So you will need to install ircddbgateway and dstarrepeater  and the web configuration tool from github.

3. Use a fresh Raspbian Buster install from the Raspberry Pi site.  You will need to activate the kernel driver in /boot/config.txt -- see the thread at https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/udrc/topic/66435210#4225  and again install ircddbgateway and dstarrepeater (probably from Compasslinux site or build from source).

Sorry, I can't be of more help right now.  Perhaps another dstarrepeater/UDRC user can help you out.
