Messed Up Usbradio Configuration File Makes Crazy Large Log File!

Hi everyone.
From the land of oops, I’m writing to suggest that you make a careful study of your /etc/asterisk/usbradio.conf file.
When I put comments into the file for explaining the low pass and high pass filters, I got a little rushed and forgot to put “;” (semicolons) on a few lines.
So, if you’re using the filters, here’s what you need to do:
There are two ways to fix this.
1. run:
cd /usr/src/utils
git pull
cp /usr/src/utils/AllStar-build/configs/usbradio.conf /etc/asterisk
Reset your configuration by editing the file.
Note: The fixed configuration will not be loaded until you run service asterisk restart or reboot your node.
2. If you don’t want to reconfigure usbradio.conf, run the following commands:
nano /etc/asterisk/usbradio.conf
CTRL+w
CTRL+r
Audio from internet
; Audio from internet
CTRL+w
CTRL+r
Audio to internet
; Audio to internet
CTRL+x, y, enter
I patched the files in the update repository, as well as released a new image so that new users won’t have to deal with this.
Also, if you try to run nano /var/log/asterisk/messages, and it seams to hang, don’t freak out! Your node *isn’t* broken! Your log has probably gotten huge from Asterisk trying, and failing to read those four lines you just fixed as variables.
I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
If you need help, use the contact form.
73,
