      I have the SoftRock 6.3 for 40M and would like to operate that in the Linux environment. I have FLDigi, Hamlib, SDR-Shell and many other ham radio applications running in Angstrom Linux on the Beagleboard (www.beagleboard.org). FLDigi seems to be much faster and less "buggy" than when I run it in Ubuntu on my PC.

      However, I have not yet gotten the 6.3 to work with FLDigi (only Rocky) and wondered what settings to use for the the Si570/USB. Also is there any setup required for the atTiny chip on the USB adapter? Has anyone else worked with FLDigi on the 6.3?

      As a side note I have been able to operate my Small Wonder Labs PSK20 with FLDigi on the Beagleboard and made 5 contacts the day before Field Day this year. One was from here in Richmond, VA to Warner Robbins, GA - 615 mils away on about 1.5 watts on BPKS-31. For that I used a USB/Serial adapter for PTT to the rig. If that info will help me with the 6.3. I do have Tony's Si570/USB setup for that.

      Thanks and 73

          Hi B ob if you want to know any thing about getting FLDigi to work try the linuxham group.  W1HKJ will help you out. I not having any problems with FLDigi. it just tkes a bit of effort to get the settings correct.

        Hi Rob, FLdigi uses the hamlib for rig control and hamlib has the skeleton code for controlling the Si570 chip, but the support is not yet implemented as far

          Hi Rob,

          FLdigi uses the hamlib for rig control and hamlib has the skeleton code
          for controlling the Si570 chip, but the support is not yet implemented
          as far as I know. One option is to implement the Si570 control support
          directly in hamlib and the second option is to implement the code in
          FLdigi to interface with the usbsoftrock program (via UDP sockets).

          73,

          Edson, Still no luck trying to cross-compile usbsoftrock or Quisk on Angstrom - differences in Python distros etc. Would really like to be able to do it direct

            Edson,

            Still no luck trying to cross-compile usbsoftrock or Quisk on Angstrom - differences in Python distros etc.

            Would really like to be able to do it direct from FLDigi which already runs perfectly on the Beagelboard (Angstrom Linux).

            Any updates on this?

            Thanks & 73,

            Rob, KC4NYK
