Re: 'security key not valid' error

John
 

Do you see this 'invalid security key' error when you run that script that calls 9075, from the node's console?
What report, if any, happens when you call ref9057 manually?
Is this a one of event?
Just some thoughts from left field..

Re: Cant adjust mic level on HP thin client

Thanks John.

> Your screen dump indicates repeater?

I disable root logins over SSH, a better practice is to SSH with a regular user account, then use "su -" with out the quotes to switch to root. In that screen dump I had switched to root to modify the mixer settings :-)

On systems with sudo if you get tried of putting sudo in-front of everything or having to re-enter the password, you and do "sudo -i" with out the quotes to switch to a root prompt.

Ctrl D will drop you back to the previous user, another Ctrl D will log out.

Are you using root or repeater to adjust the alsamixer settings?

You have to determine what module is being used first. Use the command
lsmod
to list the modules. There will be one called snd, with all the
associated modules loaded:
snd_pcm_oss            45056  0
snd_mixer_oss          24576  1 snd_pcm_oss
snd_pcm                81920  3 snd_pcm_oss,snd_via82xx,snd_ac97_codec
snd_timer              28672  2 snd_seq,snd_pcm
snd                    61440  10
snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_seq,snd_via82xx,snd_ac97_codec,snd_timer,snd_mpu401_uart,snd_rawmidi,snd_seq_device,snd_pcm soundcore              16384  1 snd
The ones here that jump out at me are snd_via82xx and snd_ac97_codec. In
order to blacklist them, I make a file called:
/etc/modprobe.d/my-blacklist.conf
and in it put something like
# Blacklists the via sound module
blacklist snd_via82xx
blacklist snd_ac97_codec
You may have to try to blacklist some others to get it right. Be careful
what you blacklist, as if you do something like blacklist the USB
controller, your keyboard wont work, etc.
Alternately, you can also set the USB sound card as the FIRST card, and
demote the others. Make a file called:
/etc/modprobe.d/my-usb-first.conf
# Keep snd-usb-audio loaded as first soundcard
options snd-usb-audio index=0
# Demotes other sound cards below it
options snd_via82xx index=-2
options snd_ac97_codec index=-2

After booting, have a look for the sound module loaded in the
/var/log/kern.log file. Then you can blacklist it, and/or force the USB
sound card to be primary. You want the USB card to show as "card 0".

Some other tools are:
alsactl init

You need to turn off the onboard sound device in the bios. If that doesn't work, you need to blacklist the module in linux.
Is the irlp audio garbled, or are the transmitted messages garbled? It could be that you don't have USE_AOSS=YES and USE_APLAY=YES set in the environment file.

Re: Mysterious Behavior since Stretch Upgrade

Allan Dunn, K1UCY
 

The 8581 node on a HP desktop connected to the Gardner 145.370 repeater via 9122  just had the operating system upgraded from Debian 7.0 to Debian 10.5 and is having audio problems that have the IRLP.net experts baffled.  The symptom there is very distorted audio coming in from the Internet.  Not sure that the outgoing is the same.

On 9/8/2020 9:01 PM, Bob DeMattia, K1IW wrote:
Our node, 4133 has exhibited a strange behavior since we upgraded to our Pi based IRLP node to Stretch two weeks ago.
To do this upgrade, we upgraded the OS and did a clean install of IRLP.  We also did an EchoIRLP
overlay, but the behavior occurs during IRLP connections.

While connected to a reflector, users report what sounds like an unmodulated carrier.  The carrier
stays until the repeater times out.

Once this has occurred, IRLP audio fails to work.  Even on connections made days later, the
connection is established but there is no audio in either direction.

Has anyone else seen this behavior?


Thanks & 73,
Bob - K1IW


troubleshoot _irlp passes when the repeater is in this condition, and audio level settings in alsamixer look normal.

A reboot of the entire system fixes the problem.

You have to determine what module is being used first. Use the command

lsmod

to list the modules. There will be one called snd, with all the
associated modules loaded:

snd_pcm_oss 45056 0
snd_mixer_oss 24576 1 snd_pcm_oss
snd_pcm 81920 3 snd_pcm_oss,snd_via82xx,snd_ac97_codec
snd_timer 28672 2 snd_seq,snd_pcm
snd 61440 10
snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_seq,snd_via82xx,snd_ac97_codec,snd_timer,snd_mpu401_uart,snd_rawmidi,snd_seq_device,snd_pcm
soundcore 16384 1 snd

The ones here that jump out at me are snd_via82xx and snd_ac97_codec. In
order to blacklist them, I make a file called:

/etc/modprobe.d/my-blacklist.conf

and in it put something like

# Blacklists the via sound module
blacklist snd_via82xx
blacklist snd_ac97_codec

You may have to try to blacklist some others to get it right. Be careful
what you blacklist, as if you do something like blacklist the USB
controller, your keyboard wont work, etc.

Alternately, you can also set the USB sound card as the FIRST card, and
demote the others. Make a file called:

/etc/modprobe.d/my-usb-first.conf

# Keep snd-usb-audio loaded as first soundcard
options snd-usb-audio index=0
# Demotes other sound cards below it
options snd_via82xx index=-2
options snd_ac97_codec index=-2

After booting, have a look for the sound module loaded in the
/var/log/kern.log file. Then you can blacklist it, and/or force the USB
sound card to be primary. You want the USB card to show as "card 0".

Some other tools are:

You need to turn off the onboard sound device in the bios. If that doesn't work, you need to blacklist the module in linux.
