Re: DRAWS 857d trouble #draws #fldigi #wsjtx #ft857


Okay, I have been lurking for awhile.  I am curious why folks are disabling pin #6 on this yaesu series. ( FT-8XX) I have an 897D. And will be attempting to get my DRAWS going soon. Or as soon as I get down time from disaster deployment.

Thanks for the console output.
Just a couple of things.

Running the script twice configures your system for packet.
Packet uses direwolf which "owns" the codec device. To get HF programs
FLdigi, WSJT-X & JS8Call running they will have to "own" the codec

To verify that direwolf is in fact in control of the DRAWS codec run:


if you see:

Status for direwolf.service: RUNNING and ENABLED

then you need to stop the direwolf service by running


Now confirm that direwolf is stopped by running 'ax25-status' again.
At this point you should be able to successfully run FLdigi, WSJT-X or JS8Call.

Another point that has no affect on what you are doing, just an
observation. You can take the hold off the Linux kernel on your system
as the current kernel has all the fixes that Anna supplied a while back.

apt-mark unhold $(apt-mark showhold)

Now do:
sudo su
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

You should now be running the most current Linux kernel: 5.10.63

One further point. To debug HF programs,  FLdigi, WSJT-X or JS8Call,
start them from a console rather than a desktop icon in order to view
any output as they start up.

Let me know how you make out.
