Re: new to the group and to rpi- SUCCESS- But...
Great advice and it helped. But it was not the fix for me.
I all ready had DSP and DSP1 in my /dev directory.
I created the /etc/asound.conf file you speak about but discovered there was a /etc/asound.conf.disabled file in that directory. It was different than yours, it looked like C or C++.
I enabled it by using this command:
sudo cp asound.config.disabled asound.conf
Then I rebooted and plugged in my TIGERTRONIC SignalLink USB and ran GMFSK. GMFSK opened with a configuration message regarding PTT, but I was seeing an active waterfall. I verified the waterfall was coming from my SignalLink by unplugging the USB and it was...So I moved on..
**UPDATE-Investigation determined the signallink USB is on DSP1!! you have to restart GMFSK every time you change the device settings.**
GPSK31- This is what I get when I start gpsk31 in the LXterm screen.
-init_audio: can't open /dev/dsp
-Hint: you may want to try to load snd_pcm_oss kernal module
-Cannot initialize audio device: /dev/dsp -1
So the program does not run any further. I checked for snd_pcm_oss:
lsmod | grep snd_pcm_oss
and it is there and linked..
snd_pcm_oss 35690 0
snd_mixer_oss 13856 1 snd_pcm_oss
snd_pcm 77560 3 snd_bcm2835,snd_pcm_oss,snd_usb_audio
snd 58447 12 snd_bcm2835,snd_pcm_oss,snd_seq_device,snd_mixer_oss
So even though the only hint I have with gpsk31 says I'm missing the module, I have it.. So Scratch gpsk31 unless someone else knows the fix to that. I have to get back to work...
**UPDATE -I know the problem is my device is DSP1!!****
**UPDATE - gpsk31 -h gives help screen.
-c <file> loads a configuation file..
I bet the answer is there. I am going to email author luc@... but I found the README in /usr/share/gpsk31 and it askes to email pg4i@... for questions..
End of UPDATE**
But I now have FLDIGI that is glitchy and GMFSK which I need to test.
Look for me at the Kansas Veterans Reunion Special Event Station this weekend W0VFW.. VFW post 3115 Amateur Radio Club- the 1st post sponsored ham radio club in the US. (See QST for details)
