Re: [Quantar-Bridge] DVSwitch Repositories

Stephen Brown - K1LNX
 

Steve, the quantar metapackage is not found, this is on a Stretch/x64 install: 

root@roipsrv-d:/tmp# apt-get install quantar
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package quantar


I did locate something called quantar-bridge, is that it? DVSwitch installed just fine.

I also chose a bad name for the metapackage. The name I chose was dvswitch. It's a good name for a metapackage but not a good name for the Quantar_Bridge metapackage. so by about about 3 PM eastern Wednesday the packages will be:
1: Available for ARM, i386 and AMD64
2: ARM and i386 will run on Jessie and Stretch
3: AMD64 will run on Debain AMD64 and Ubuntu AMD64
3: All packages will be in the stretch repository
The available packages are:
dvswitch_base, Analog_Bridge, md380-emu, MMDVM_Bridge, P25Gateway, P25Parrot and P25Reflector.
The metapackages will be named dvswitch and quantar.
dvswitch will contain:
dvswitch_base, Analog_Bridge, md380-emu and MMDVM_Bridge
quantar will contain:
dvswitch_base, MMDVM_Bridge, P25Gateway, P25Parrot and P25Reflector

After installing the repository, you will install either dvswitch or quantar or both

I hope this make sens and will make thing easier for people.

I setup a new ASL node today using Raspbian Stretch image & have a new bridge up & going over to DMR.  It’s working great!
Congratulations. 73 EA5GVK.

Steve,

   Just a quick follow up, I setup a new ASL node today using Raspbian Stretch image & have a new bridge up & going over to DMR.  It’s working great!   Setup was straight forward.  Now I have a few more bridges to work on. 😉  Thanks for all the hard work to everyone!  73 de K4SQI!

Subject: [DVSwitch] Alpha test of new DVSwitch programs available.

 

I have built the first TEST package for DVSwitch on a Raspbian (Jessie and Stretch), x86. I have not tested it on x64 yet.
When I say tested, I mean the program starts and does not segfault. There is a lot of testing yet to do and I expect bugs in both the apt packages and programs.
This is early and fixes will follow as needed.
The programs are:
Analog_Bridge: Added P25 support. Added md380-emu for DMR, YSF narrow and NXDN support
MMDVM_Bridge: Supports all of the modes available for the MMDVM D-Star, DMR, YSF, P25 and NXDN 
Quantar_Bridge: Connect a native P25 Quantar to the MMDVM P25 system.

Each of these program deserve a page of their own to try to even scratch the surface of what you can build. These program CAN be used on a single repeater or hotspot but there are other great programs for that. The programs are intended to let you build bridges between modes. NXDN <-> DMR. You can bridge a NXDN reflector to a DMR TG (no transcoding needed) P25 <-> DMR. You can bridge a P25 reflector to a DMR TG.    


From there you get to configure it.
IF you want to try it:

As root
cd /tmp

wget http://dvswitch.org/install-dvswitch-repo

chmod +x install-dvswitch-repo

./install-dvswitch-repo
 apt-get update

 

apt-get install analog-bridge
apt-get install mmdvm-bridge
apt-get install quantar-bridge

I will create metapackages to reduce the number of apt-get installs are required.
This is early and there will be bugs. One of the reason we chose to use the Debian package system is to allow quick updates. 

For DVSwitch,
73, Steve N4IRS

Anyway, works and sounds great ASL -> DMR BM. DMR -> ASL sounds funny. There is a pulsing - stutter to the audio and I swear it sounds like it is a little low and slow, like sampling issue or something. Again sounds great going the other direction. Thoughts and ideas? Sure I have a config messed up somewhere but so far have not found it.

Steve,

Thank you Steve and all the team who participate

(Humor) you just ruined my vacation, I have to wait to go home to be able to test, implement etc;-)

Really, it's still very good news that will simplify all the gateways I provide to French networks, so thanks Steve !

And I will not fail to share with you the results of my tests.... on my return from vacation ;-)
and I look forward to trying the "md380-emu" for transcoding.

You guys continue to help make a lot of things possible!
