Make sure the directory exists /var/log/opendv/
if not you can do a "mkdir -p /var/log/opendv/

Good afternoon and thank you for adding me to the group.
I previously posted in the Yahoo group the following:
In an effort to be prepared to
plugin the URDC hat when it arrives I thought I would
download the image and setup my micro SD card. Went to
archive.compasslinux.org and downloaded zip file. No
problems. Extracted the image and installed it on the SD
card. No problem. Ethernet cable works but I cannot get the
Edimax wifi dongle to work. the Pi sees it and loads the
module for it. by doing lsusb it shows the wlan adapter on
Bus 001 Device 004 exactly where it does in my other Pi
distributions. Iwlist wlan0 scan shows the available
networks. So I know the adapter is working and seeing the
wireless world. The Pi and Edimax wifi adapter work great
with several other distros.
I cannot do much configuration with
the Pi plugged into the ethernet cable as I do not have an
HDMI monitor there. Where I have an HDMI monitor I do not have
an available wired network connection. So where I can see what
I am doing I have no network and where I have network I cannot
see. (Could be a country song there, hi)
I recognize this is not a NW Digital issue
but I can find very little information concerning the
compass distribution and what is built in, what works and
what does not. I have followed several different step by
step guides to get it to work all with failure. A little bit
of direction would be very helpful and I would be grateful.
John replied quickly and sent me on a path to
solve my wifi connection issue. Turned out that even with
using sudo commands I still was not able to change the
configuration for the network settings to permit the wife
adapter to work. I took ownership as user "pi" of the
/etc/network/ directory and that permitted me to configure
wife to work. I then had similar issues installing VNC.
Finally got that working so I can remotely connect.
Today I thought I would preinstall
dstarrepeater and ircddbgateway which again presented some
permission issues, even with utilizing sudo commands.
dstarrepeater was configured and I went on to ircddbgateway.
When I run sudo ircddbgateway I am presented with a popup box
which states "Cannot open /var/log/opendv/irrcddbgateway.log
for appending. When I click OK i am presented with "Fatal
Error: Assertion failed on line 67 in file Common/Logger.cpp
and function DoLog: m_file->IsOpened()
Again this seems to be a permissions issue.
Clearly I am a novice with the Raspberry PI and
Linux and I am using this as a learning experience and do not
wish to cause any problem. I completely expect this to be an
issue I created. Since I do not yet have my URDC hat it may be
that simple. But It appears that the image my have some
permission issues for user "pi". I will continue to plug away
at it and want to say John has been great and responding to my
direct emails. If this is an issue in the image then I will
not be the only one experiencing the issue.
Thanks for all the help!
