Raspberry Pi question
- Having been given a Pi for Xmas I am considering it's use as a stand alone APRS unit using BPQ32. It's been quite a while since I played with any form of linux - the last was UBUNTU about 4 years ago!. Firstly is what I am considering feasible (I must admit to having not followed the BPQ/Pi thread very closely since I didn't have one and was not considering buying one for myself :) ). Secondly, there seem to be a few flavours of linux available - the predominant one being Rasbian - for the Pi, any thoughts on preferences for use with BPQ32?
Please don't get too technical at this stage, my linux is very rusty (although I'm sure it will come back to me when I get it all working), but any advice at all would be most welcome.
Thanks, Mike, g8jhe........
- Yes, understand. One of the things that been chaffing me is the lack of a digital sstv program on the macintosh. I thought I found one recently. QSSTV is a Linux program the makes use of QT4 :-}. Compile wonderfully right up to the point they use an OS specific audio driver :-(. So it does go both ways. I haven’t gotten desperate enough write a driver (using port audio) yet, still need to see what other non portable issue remain before tackling it. Otherwise FLDIGI and local programing keeps me quite busy.Although I’d be interested in taking a peek at the code in Winmor myself.RobertOn Mar 20, 2014, at 4:13 PM, Matthew Pitts <daywalker_blade_2004@...> wrote:Robert,
As far as I know, Rick didn't know that there would be as much interesting in using it on other platforms as there is now when he started writing WINMOR; also, using Mono and PortAudio, the current version could be run on Linux and MacOS with minimal changes. The main issues that exist at this time are ones that essentially preclude much further development of that protocol; a new one, written specifically to run on all three (using .NET/Mono) is probably the wisest course of action.

Subject: Re: [BPQ32] Multiple ARQ modes with FLARQSorry Gents, I know this is a little late, but.I not sure what do you mean by wide band mode on HF as I recall there is a restriction to what is useable by rule on HF. FLDIGI in it's current form has many "wide band" modes. A more relevant question would be, why didn't the developers of WINMOR chose an environment that makes porting a problem? QT4/FLTK are available on Windows and could have been use to ease the porting to other systems. Grant you I haven't see the code so this is base on conjecture. I do think the true issue needs to be addressed.Robert, KK5VD,Developer of FLDIGI for Windows, Linux, and MacOSX
