It probably was installed/updated without the hold on kernel headers.

Agreed, the initial diagnosis is to run the asterisk cli from the shell outside the script, and see what the error is. There's a log file that is called when running asl-menu in /tmp/asl-menu.log which might hold a clue too.

And I just realized we're talking capitalization... in Manuel's situation his screenshot shows the variable is uppercase, and should remain that way in the do_asterisk_cli function.

Very good Stephen,

I should have taken my time and looked at it all and not looked for the short answer.

As I said, I don't use the asl-menu,

but I guess I should find out why it's not  in /usr/loacal/sbin or /usr/sbin/  on my Pi when I get a chance.


The best fix would be to come back at this with a new instance of putty and just run the commands from there.

Makes little sense to run the menu to run a command. But, No harm.

Mike,

The $ASTERISK is a variable set earlier in the script, on line 68. The do_asterisk_cli takes that variable and makes it into a full line that the shell expects. The variable in this case allows for the asterisk executable to be placed anywhere on the system, and each time the variable is called the shell will replace the variable name with the actual value. Since the asterisk program is called in many functions in the script, creating a variable makes it easier to change one line rather than many in the script, in case the location of the program changes.

So line 68 creates the variable:

ASTERISK=/usr/sbin/asterisk

which turns $ASTERISK -rvvv into

/usr/sbin/asterisk -rvvv

in do_asterisk_cli

Re: AllStarLink/ASL-Install

I assume that with the graphical interface being used, you installed ASL on top of an existing Linux install? If I recall correctly, the ASL image is based on ALArm, not Debian/Raspbian. 

When running the asl-menu script, are you elevating to superuser by using sudo asl-menu?


Re: AllStarLink/ASL-Install

Manuel Díaz
 




so I have it and it gives me the error 5




Re: AllStarLink/ASL-Install

Steve KC1AWV
 

Long story short, if running the command asterisk -rvvv on the terminal works, this is the reason why.

The asl-menu script looks for the asterisk executable in /usr/sbin. If your instance of asterisk is installed or located elsewhere, you will need to change line 68 in the asl-menu script to reflect the correct location of the executable. So, for instance, if it's located in /usr/local/sbin the line should be changed to ASTERISK=/usr/local/sbin/asterisk. To find where the executable is, you can run which asterisk on the terminal to show where the file is located in your PATH.

Of course, flashing the maintained image for the RPi onto your card would work too, and I've had no issues running a mobile ASL node from it.

If you exit back to the terminal and run asterisk -rvvv does the asterisk cli come up?

Hi.
Who knows why I get this error when I give option 5 of the asl-menu?
I have the system installed in a raspberry pi 3B

Re: ASL <-> XLX No analog audio?

Steve KC1AWV
 

Unfortunately, not yet. I am using the md380 software codec right now, and I would like to test a hardware AMBE dongle. I will have to purchase another pair and send the audio over to the transcoding server, as the ASL and XLX servers are housed in a colo data center that I do not have physical access to. I intended to do this anyway, to see if I can get DStar, DMR and YSF all on one module talking to each other.

Please let me know if you make any progress. I do want to keep this topic open to see if anyone else has input, as well as providing my own status updates with this project.

If there are people interested in testing the system I have in place, please do. The inbound connections available are:

ASL node 46550
Echolink KC1AWV-L
XLX740 Module B (Transcoding)

Thanks!
