just plain ol'packet on RPI?
I have updated an install script for aprs on a Raspberry. It now gives you the selection of installing:
Soundmodem incl. testing and adjusting of the audio
xastir - looks to me that it serves your purpose
Create a fresh debian wheezy 4Gb card and get in script here. Put it in usr/src, chmod 755 the file and then run it: /usr/src/aprx.sh
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade && cd /usr/src && sudo wget http://www.pa0esh.nl/aprs/rpi/aprx.sh && sudo chmod 755 aprx.sh && sudo ./aprx.sh

If you are new to the pi, but familiar with “plain old packet”, then I’d suggest you consider using LinBPQ, the Linux version of the BPQ node package that has been around for about 25 years, so should qualify as old!
If you are new to both the pi and packet, then it still may be worth considering LinBPQ, but it depends on what aspects of packet you are interested in For example, if your only interest is APRS, then there may be simpler packages to use.

basically,just want to back track and refresh my brain cells, before I move on to bigger and better things.
the pi is a good affordable platform to try all the toys out there.
