1693Re: [Raspberry_Pi_4-Ham_RADIO] Re: framework for self-starting ham application images on Raspberry pi
- May 14 11:03 AMHi Jim
yes I'm an expert with setups ;-)) and have re burned so many images
from scratch, and have five 8gig cards and five raspberry pies for the
I can even compare files between one pi and the next and have 2 monitors
and keyboards etc setup opposite one another so I can compare screens.
So i can get a Pi going no problem there,.. and can ssh or xrdp into it
from all my windoze boxes without a problem. I just cannot use the
bloody things for what i want ie ham radio stuff.
My web server is current appache and is running in an xp enviroment and
shares the windows fbb bbs.
I have setup an owncloud headless PI as it was the only prepared image
that i could find on the web,... but cannot see it from the outside
although i have made the ports accessible via my router however i can
http into it from within my network and upload file and create folders
etc, and even setup users.
But it does not exist where i need it on the outside, and because linux
scatters files all over the place makes it very difficult once again to
Dont know if you know owncloud at all but it runs the free sql edition
and apache and it is I would imagine just a matter of finding appache
and configuring it to see the outside via my vk4tub.no-ip.org account.
I have a friend in Canada who is also helping with a version of fbb that
he setup for me and I am trying to find my way around that right now as
i have some forwarding issues with it.
I am having difficulies with the fact that linux scatters files
everywhere and you have to know the paths and where things are kept in
order to fault find problems.
None of my books cover this and hence many of my problems stem from the
fact that i want to run radio projects and not games or programming as
this is well covered in all the pie books I have.
I am very disappointed with the fact that these are advertised as
learning tools for school children and one automatically assumes that
they will be a simple thing to use.
Misleading for a beginner like myself and also I have not successfully
got anything to actually work on the pi myself and still nothing after 5
months which is pretty poor meaning I am either a total idiot or it is
simply beyond the average person.
If it wasn't for the fact that someone else kindly setup fbb for me i
would have no hope, compiling all the stuff needed for the pie was a
huge learning curve on its own and I had spent months trying.
And while I am on it i have searched the web for countless hours looking
for this magic repository where all these program's are available for
the PI but have never yet found anywhere to download them or where it
I have covered pie for beginners, the actual pie site itself and many
other places but am lost as to actually where i can download this software.
Apparently you can just type "apt-get" and it magically appears ,...but
im aftraid the batteries in my magic wand must be flat ;-)) as i cannot
get a dam thing?
So Jim right now after all this time I, and effort will except help from
absolutely anyone, and in the end i hope that one day it would be nice
to actually get something to a work myself on one of these god dam
As I can see the day coming very soon where the whole lot will become
wheel chocks for my car.
So thank you sincerely for your offer and i will gladly take you up on
that, i will go and check the link you have provided and thank you
