Re: pulsing when piirlp connceted to repeater

Ken Kosters
 

Suggestion is to do a pulse check as suggested in the operations manual. I think the repeater controller might not be set correct for tail and or pulse adjustments might be needed on the node.

Re: ActionTech T3200

Dale,
How about the other addresses I asked about? What do you get when you ping irlp.net? If that does not work, you have a local routing problem on your end.

I would be highly surprised if TDS blocked anything that we care about. Some ISPs block TCP 25 outbound (mail) and 80 inbound to prevent abuse, but we do not use any of those common ports for IRLP.

You did not include any information about your LAN address ranges, so it is impossible to tell.  You need to look at your router configuration again and see what the router's address is on your LAN (the WAN address doesn't matter).  But if you are using DHCP with a reserved address, it has to be right.  Can you ping the LAN gateway address from your node?  Most likely that is 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.0.254 (but technically it could be 192.168.0.anything).

Re: Updating OS

David Cameron - IRLP
 

No, the board needs to be there to finalize the install, but it does not affect the root password change. 

Try putting the CAPS LOCK key on and try the password again. There is very little you can do if your system is not responding to the root password you set. 

But, you should still be able to log in as user pi, and redo the passwd root command.

Very old IRLP node needing OS update... backup_for_reinstall script fails at '--exclude'

Randy AA6RH
 

Howdy all,

Randy AA6RH here, taking over a club IRLP node (7103 - W6SON) and finding the OS is waaaaaaaay out of date.

At first, I followed the docs that said "use the backup_for_reinstall script". So I would, and on the console (SSH) I would see an error, followed by a bunch of instructions that apparently don't work if the script breaks.

So I went into the script and found a tar command:

tar -X ${ID}/scripts/nobackup.list --exclude=stn*.wav --exclude=ref*.wav \
 -cvf ${ID}/backup/irlp_backup.tar * .pgp*


Anyhow, running that tar command expanded on the command line:

tar -X /home/irlp/scripts/nobackup.list --exclude=stn*.wav --exclude=ref*.wav \
 -cvf /home/irlp/backup/irlp_backup.tar * .pgp*


STILL doesn't work. I get the following unhelpful answer:

tar: stn*.wav: No such file or directory

So I looked for any wav files that matched this pattern in my folder (and cursed that 'find' isn't loaded on this really really old version of CentOS)

ls -R ./**/stn*.wav
ls: ./**/stn*.wav: No such file or directory


But clearly, the script thinks that the tar command should work without issue. So I'm guessing the script breaks because the OS is several years past it's "use by" date.

So, long story short, I noticed that the script also has an --exclude statement for 'ref*.wav'. I did find some ref*.wav files in the directory list, so I just added the individual names (temporarily) to the nobackup.list file, then modified the backup_for_reinstall script to get rid of the --exclude options, and...

...I got a backup finally! Whew.

Now to read up on how to replace this with Debian, or perhaps a Raspberry Pi setup that everyone has been gushing about.

Cheers,

--R

This is EXACTLY what I run into that I can't get anywhere. The instructions need to be better:

At the prompt, type:

sudo  su  -
passwd  root
After trying all kinds of combinations, it took a password and now it won't let me back in with the one I used!

I downloaded Buster Lite, maybe that is the wrong version. I guess we don't have a stripped down Linux version to use like we used to. At this point, do idea what "config" is.

I am able to SSH into the Buster Lite, but maybe that isn't going to be doing me any good.

Right now trying to set up a static IP address but that doesn't work.

Re: Updating OS

You install “Raspbian” which is the only OS that runs on the RPi. The link to it is just above the paragraph you quoted.

First of all, what OS should be used? No information to be found about that. I can only guess.



Boot your Pi, and perform the following steps in the config:

• expand_rootfs Expand root partition to fill SD card
• change_pass Change password for 'pi' user
• change_locale Set locale (as required)
• change_timezone Set timezone
• memory_split Change memory split (set to 16)
• ssh Enable ssh server
• boot_behaviour DO NOT BOOT INTO DESKTOP
Then click Finish.

Dave,

Disabling the LVDS port did the trick. VGA now works. Thanks.

Phil,

See https://irlp.groups.io/g/IRLP/message/70935 this has come up before.

You also might try using an HDMI monitor if you are using the VGA port. You
also might be able to disable the LVDS port (flat panel) in the BIOS.

Greetings.

So my troubles keep continuing with Debian on my new DN2800MT motherboard
for rebuilding Node 5960.

Here is what I have done so far:

Downloaded and burned ISO 12.07, twice, and did the install onto a PNY 120
G
SSD, twice. BIOS is set for SSD to boot first. The dark blue screen shows
up
saying Debian will auto load. Upon doing that, I get 2 scrolling lines of
the OS trying to load and it stops. Monitor gets Loss of Signal.

Tried installing the OS onto a 320G Western Digital HDD. BIOS set for HDD
to
boot first. Upon booting up, the dark blue screen shows up saying Debian
will auto load. Upon doing that, I get 2 scrolling lines of the OS trying
to
load and it stops. Monitor gets Loss of Signal.

So I download and burned ISO 13.03 and did the install onto a PNY 120G
SSD.
BIOS is set for SSD to boot first. The dark blue screen shows up saying
Debian will auto load. Upon doing that, I get 2 scrolling lines of the OS
trying to load and it stops. Monitor gets Loss of Signal.

And just for yuck, the DN2800MT does recognize and boots up from a
Windows
10 HDD with no issues.

Any ideas? All help is appreciated.
