I would like to see the startup of MB from both the RPi and the Netbook. From start to login to the master.

I have tune scripts, that switch mode, then use a tune string.
similar to
sudo /opt/Analog_Bridge/dvswitch.sh tune mypassword@MasterIP:62031

I have attached the MB.ini file and edited it with some notes of explanation.

Hope that clarifies it a little.

Are the netbook and the RPI on the same LAN?
Can the netbook ping hblink.dvswitch.org?

Anything unusual in the log when the netbook connects to hblink.dvswitch.org?
When you say it goes nowhere, how did you determine that?

Derek,
Are you saying that if you have hblink.dvswitch.org as your DMR Master on your netbook, it does not execute mode changes or tunes? If so, please post the MB.ini from the netbook.

Steve thanks for the reply.

What is strange is that I have a RPi with

Address=hblink.dvswitch.org in MMMDVM Bridge
And that works fine with my mode change and tune scripts.

However if I use the same settings on on my netbook running DVSwitch it appears to work, no errors that I can see in the logs, and yet it simply doesn't work.

Perhaps then more the question is why DOES it work on the RPi?

Derek,
Are you asking why your transmission go nowhere when you are connected to hblink.dvswitch.org?
hblink.dvswitch/org is a simple DMR master I setup for people to test. There is no connection to any other network or master. There is no dashboard. The only way someone else would hear you is to also be connected to hblink.dvswitch.org and be on the same TG / TS.

We have discussed building a expanded HBlink master to better demonstrate the uses for HBlink but there is only so much time in the day.

Hope this answers your question.
73, Steve N4IRS

I have DVS running on a Rpi, in MMDVM_Bridge.ini I have the following settings

Jitter=360
Local=62032
Password=######
# for XLX the syntax is: Options=XLX:4009
# Options=
Slot1=0
Slot2=1
Debug=0
#-------------------------
That works fine with the scripts I have for switching systems, BM, TGIF, DMR+ etc.
I have another installation of DVS on a netbook, if I use the same settings the log files report that it has signed into the master with no problems, but my transmissions don't go anywhere, eg when on BM I watch the last heard and my transmissions never appear. However if I change the address line to a BM master with my password, all works fine.
So why does one work and not the other?
As always grateful there are folk out there smarter than me.

Re: installing on other ARM platforms other than raspberry #best_practices

Good morning Steve and first of all ty for replay.

I have run the DVSwitch programs on H2 - H5 and Samsung processors

I'm glad to read this. Before my f post I read a lot ( read much times this forum and also a pdf explaining " how is made" )  and wrongly understood that was necessary , for some kernel instruction or other, a specific arm processor. Cool it is not !

We uses qemu to provide a "abstraction layer" to allow md380-emu to run everywhere we have tested.

Well this is a part must dig deeper since , again wrongly, supposed no need of q-emu to run natively on arm processors.

You can install DVSwitch Server on Armbian now, see <https://github.com/DVSwitch/DVSwitch-System-Builder>

Sure it will be next step , go througth the install process. I'm not exactly a linux guru in the meaning I don't know of coding in c++ or python but neither I'm zero knoledge. Am able to debug a script or a shell and can " understand" a bit a python wrap. I'm sure other questions will come and will ask again on these pages, but I see this forum is very active in helping people with dilemmas . thanks

Armbian happens to be one of my favorite distributions

Well, just for coriousity , this is the project a talented man and me we focused on. Most people supposed linux won't run on these board, we  did it. On that forum my nick is fabiobassa again, just a nickname !

https://forum.armbian.com/topic/12656-csc-armbian-for-rk322x-tv-boxes/

If you want to include the DVSwitch programs in you project, you are welcome to do so.

Sure, thank you but before I must be sure the things are working, and then put as much infos to help people easily reproduce the whole scenario.

73 and good luck on your project.

Thank you so much Steve, 73's Marco IZ8XOH

 

EDIT:

the install process went smoothly. Now just need understand where all config go and how they interact each other

It is possible to install ASL on a existing DVSwitch Server.
It is easier to install DVSwitch Server on a existing ASL 1.01 node.

ASL 1.01 is VERY picky about the system you are installing on. DAHDI can be troublesome. A lot depends on how well you know Linux and building kernel modules.
ASL 1.01 ISO is built on Debain Stretch. Once ASL 1.01 is running, it's pretty easy to add DVSwitch server. This assumes you build from the ISO.
If you can't install from a ISO, start with a fresh Stretch install, ASL install should go pretty well.

The Raspberry Pi install is he easiest. Start with the ASL 1.01 image. Boot and configure. Add DVSwitch Server and configure.

All of the DVSwitch components, Analog_Bridge, MMDVM_Bridge, the gateways etc are built to work together. Everything uses UDP ports to communicate.
