[aprssig] Perl and TNC X

Perl and the pi with a TNC work fine.


I’ve used it to create a linux QRU server a couple of years ago. Again using the FAP library.


As far as the ax25 stack, get the latest version from the maintainers, the versions in the repositories are usually way out of date (at least for Ubuntu and rasbian) they are easy to compile and work fine.


Then just set it up like you would any linux based machine and use AX0 etc for the interface to the tnc. That actually makes it easier as your program can use it just like any other network interface and you don’t have to worry about framing packets manually as the stack takes care of all that for you.


If you need any help, don’t hesitate to get with me off list.


I also second ARPx I just haven’t had much time to play with it.

The Raspberry Pi also happens to be a supported arch for Aprx, so you can download a precompiled deb file here: http://thelifeofkenneth.com/aprx/debs/aprx_2.9.0_raspi.deb


Install it with "sudo dpkg -i aprx_2.9.0_raspi.deb" and it supports auto-start by editing /etc/default/aprx after setting up the config file how you'd like.

I'm working with aprx. Runs great as a daemon on the BBB so it should run equally well on the pi.

I had to hack out a script to get the BBB to automatically start it as a service when the system boots.
