DX-Spider (cluster) on Ubuntu 14 LTS



I have downloaded, built and installed spider dx-cluster version 1.55.
I started the cluster without problems (except that the US database
doesn't even attempt to load), but when (in another terminal window)
I try to run the "client" program, I get the following:

$ pwd
/spider/perl
$ cd ..
$ ls
Changes  CVS            filter      INSTALL    mrtg     SpiderConsole  txt
cmd      cvsupdate      gcommit     LICENSE    msg      spider-web
connect  cvsupdate.bat  Geo          local      perl     src
contrib  data           gtkconsole  local_cmd  scripts  techdoc
COPYING  examples       html        local.cmd  sgml     TODO
$ cd src
$ ./client
Must have at least a callsign (for now)
$ ./client m3wuc
Error on connect to 127.0.0.1 port 27754 (111)
                                              $

Can anyone help?

73 and thanks in advance!

This is a somehat radical proposal re: QSL proof



A lot of hams are living on fixed incomes and do not contest, collect cards, etc., but still enjoy casual digital communications as long as it doesn't start turning into a new job.

I'm tossing this idea into the aethers: that we exchange a standardized line of text that serves as a QSL "card" that we roll as part of a digital QSO, making paper cards or membership somewhere unnecessary.

I know this removes the "romantic and exotic" part of the hobby a little, but we still have our Q-R-Zed pages..

Offered on behalf of those born a little slow, or a little slow due to age. 73 de dave/kd6il

fldigi, cqrlog and Omni VII



Good morning everybody,
I have all the components above up and running using Andy's HAM Linux - v15.1-32bit on a Dell Optiplex 780.
fldigi has full control over the Omni VII - readout and set frequency.
CQRLog reads out - I don't know if it should also set frequency (by clicking in bandmap would be nice f.ex.)
But - only one software at once. CQRLog through rigctl(d) and fldigi using Hamlib.
Is there a way to setup that both can readout the Omni VII as I swith frequently from digimodes to SSB and back ?

TIA for your help

Win 7, when a support pgm dislikes Fldigi in Program Files (x86) location?



This is the next question after having installed Fldigi where it is recommended in the http://www.w1hkj.com/FldigiHelp-3.21/html/installing_on_windows_page.html ie C:\Program Files (x86)\Fldigi\

I wanted to run N2AMG's fldigi-dxlabs-gateway pgm http://www.n2amg.com/software/fldigi-dxlabs-gateway/ which installs in C:\ and of course has issues with the permissions needed to interact with Fldigi in the Program Files area.

So what is the recommended way to coerce them into playing nice together?

Where are you installing Fldigi on Windows 7?

Sorry I know this is predominantly a linux based group, but I would like 
to know where any Windows 7 users are installing their Fldigi's.

in c:\Program Files (x86)\   or    under C:\

if I could have figured out how to do a poll I would have ask that way

TIA

Re: Trying to install Fldigi



The instructions he’s using are substantially the same as the instructions here:

http://www.w1hkj.com/LaunchpadInstall.html

Installing the current version from kamal’s ppa is perfectly valid.  Not everyone needs to build from source.

Why would you follow instructions from a site that is not specifically an fldigi support site?

Trying to install Fldigi





Hi here,

I followed the instructions on page:
http://www.hamradioandvision.com/installing-fldigi-for-linux/


 


and got the following response:


:~$ sudo apt-get install fldigi
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree      
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been mov ed out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 fldigi : Depends: libfltk-images1.3 but it is not installable
          Depends: libfltk1.3 (>= 1.3.0) but it is not installable
          Depends: libhamlib2 (>= 1.2.15.1) but it is not installable
          Depends: librpc-xml-perl but it is not installable
          Recommends: extra-xdg-menus but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.



Any idea what I should do? Broken packages, where are they?


I am using Xubuntu 12.04 and I am not very fluent with that.


Any help would be appreciated.

Re: 32 or 64 bit



Hi. Sorry for off list, its so much easier from a droid device.

Anyway, from the PC spec you quoted, definitely 32 bit. But if you can max out the amount of RAM it has, for a slick experience, even better.

Re: Should I use the 32 or 64 bit 14.04 lts



For the record, It is quite possible to run "32 bit only" programs on 64-bit Linux, although the OS needs to be setup to do so.

My understand is that it is easier to do this on some distros than on others - perhaps someone here has experience doing this on Ubuntu. It is quite easy on 64-bit Slackware (which is what I run). I can run distribution (pre-compiled) binaries of Google Earth, Adobe Reader, Skype, and others which do not come in versions that run on "pure" 64-bit Linux.

32 bit.  I have ALWAYS found a program I need that is 32 bit only.

Hello,

I'm about to build a new Ubuntu PC. The machine I have is an older HP with a 3.20G Celeron(R) D cpu and 1G memory. It has a 70 G drive. I have a smaller PC (16G) running the following Wine, Ham Radio Deluxe, CQRLog, Gambas, Svxlink, Qtel and Echolink. A lot of stuff for a small HDD. That's why I want to go to a bigger PC. So what does the group think I should do, 64 bit or 32 bit?

How can I change the system monitor resolution and refresh rate? I need 1280X1024 and 60HZ for Ubuntu to display correctly on my Xerox LCD monitor.
