RaspberryPi & Xastir
- Perhaps this has been answered before.
I have Xastir installed and using the symlink function and i2c bus to activate the com ports. I am using the TNC-Pi with 2 of them stacked.
If I create the symlink (sudo i2ckiss <bus> <device> symlink com1), everything works perfectly.
If I kill xastir and restart xastir, I cannot get the interface to come "UP".
The only way I can get it to work is to remove the existing symlink (rm com1) and re-create the symlink again. Then I can get the interface to come "UP" properly.
The symlinks are running as root.
Is this normal for symlinks or am I missing something?

- A buddy of mine had a similar issue. Our solution was to create a script that would remove the symlink and then remove shutdown xastir. Then it would it would reverse the process on startup. This really just qualifies as a work around since we never did get to the root issue of why it was happening.
- Thanks Anthony. Appreciate your comments, I guess the complete ax25 install would probably cure this peculiarity. In the meantime I have also done what you have done.
