Re: [linuxham] Launcher for fldigi under ubuntu 7.10
- I don't know how or should I say which version...the
FldigiHelp-2.0.tar.gz or the 'fldigi-2.04.bin.tgz' you
installed, but with pclinuxos, I opened the
downloader...synaptic...and said 'new repository' then
pointed to the http://www.w1hkj.com/Fldigi-2.x.html as
the 'new Repository'. Then had it pull the
fldigi-2.04.bin.tgz in and told snyptic OKAY. Synaptic
proceeded to grab it and install and the icon worked
So if that is what you did, then I have no clue, but
if you compiled it from the tar file, again, too
newbie a linux or should I say never messed with tar
When I ran Knoppix, another flavor of debian, I could
just point apt to a file like I did on PCLinuxos and
do that also, but that was 2 years ago.
I have NOT transmitted even cw yet, just got the
4n33's to make the interface to try cw with. But it
opens and seems to work as best I can tell.
Dang tinitis!! makes learning cw fun/frustration!

Ah, dripping weather gone! Was nice and cool this morning
Did I mention, 2/23/07 the FCC droped all testing for any license as a ham?
Just pass the written and "Yo's a ham"!!
Never miss a thing. Make Yahoo your home page.

the underlying sound system, in most cases folks are using ALSA.
In your case, you were able to use Portaudio and the FLdigi code to
force a supported sample rate that your Intel HD sound card could handle
natively. This is 44,100, 48,000. The card won't support lower sample
rates, but digital apps want to use them, like 8000, 11,025, etc. There
are a variety of standard sample rates for sound cards, yours does not
support all of these (at least in Linux and ALSA.) And that's why the
ticking. ALSA had to up convert, and the Intel HD driver for ALSA is not
up to the task right now.
Portaudio and a forced (in FLDIGI) supported sample rate fixed the
ticking because no conversion was then needed on the sound stream.
If WSJT can select a sample rate, you should be able to take care of the
problem easily. You might want to ask Joe to put that in the code.
