You might consider joining the fbb mailing list. Bernard F6BVP is
actively maintaining xfbb (and FPAC) and he was going to install
xfbb on a Pi around the middle of last year.
I succeeded the compilation of a dedicated Raspbian 3.1.9+ kernel
packet radio modules (ax25, 6pack, kiss, Rose, NetRom).
I just followed instructions given in Debian paragraph of
Compilation took the whole night but it did not hurt as I was
I then installed a ROSE node switch FPAC on my RPi.
Then I will move my co located F6BVP BBS into it.
F6BVP node can be reached via FPAC Rose network and it will soon
be available through ssh.
As for now lighttpd is running a web page advertizing RPi at

This was back in July before a stock kernel with support was
I guess I'm also a packet junkie but I'll resist the temptation to
ever again run a 6 radio port, 1 udp port bbs and I'll stick with
a 3 port aprs gateway <grin>.

Greetinga all on this great list
First let me say thankyou to all who have taken the time
to reply to me as it is appreciated.
Put quite simply the time these groups save an individual
is enormous and without this knowledge base it takes us
all a considerably lot longer time frame to figure out
where we are going wrong.
The reason I am commenting,.. is this has happened to me
as all of the problems that one would usually incurr and
especially me as I am about 15 days into linux/RPI
operating system has gone and I have a very stable PIE and
have a second one on the way,.. plus 2 TNCX packet modems
for the Pies on order. So they will be ready for the main
purpose of getting them to this point and that will be to
run them as packt BBS's
I am a packet junkie at heart and have returned to packet
radio after a 7 year absense now having a simple
winxp/FBBS system running and this time not with 4 radio
ports, plus internet forawarding to half the world ...;-))
and all of the bells and whistles but this time with one
radio port and a telnet port for forwarding.
It is still called the wormhole bbs and for those of you
that might remember way back to the late 80,s onwards
would have possibly have seen a bulletin or two floating
around with that name as part of the header.
So in someways we are now streaks ahead and then again
not,... as with packet radio and the bbs running on WXP
My question to the group is that somewhere in the archives
a guy from the usa has managed to get a version of xffbs
to run on the PIE.
And I would like to know if anyone else has been
successful in doing so as now my PIE is ready for the next
