    Scheduled Maintenance Of AllStar Link Network

    Hello everyone,
    As you may know, RasLink relies on the AllStar Link network infrastructure for tasks such as registering nodes, and downloading node lists.
    On Sunday August 12, 2018, there is planned maintenance for two hours.
    Via the AllStarLink app_rpt mailing list, located…[Read more]

    • Maintenance was completed on the AllStar Link servers on August 12, 2018.
      If you are having trouble connecting to nodes, please check your registration status.
      You can check this via the command line, by doing the following from your server’s command prompt:
      1. asterisk -vvvr
      2. iax2 show registry
      3. exit
      If you see a “Y” and the word “registered”…[Read more]

    ***CRITICAL UPDATE***
    RasLink Repository Moved to GitLab

    Hello everyone,
    I wanted to let you know that I’ve moved the RasLink repository from GitHub to GitLab.
    Questions you may be asking:
    What does this mean for me?
    You need to run system-update before August First, 2018, to prevent updates from failing in the future. The GitHub repository will…[Read more]

    hello,

    • Shehzad,
      Please try to run system-update again. I tryed upgrading from the image you’re running, and found that Perl wouldn’t get configured correctly. The reason for this is because on the Raspberry Pi, I have a script that mounts /tmp as a temporary filesystem on boot. This is to reduce writes to the SD card.
      Unfortunately, I had the noexec…[Read more]

      It looks like Asterisk didn’t compile correctly.
      Please run “/usr/src/utils/AllStar-build/common/update-asterisk.sh”, and let me know the results.
      I’m going to revert my development box to the base image you’re running, and see if I can reproduce the issue.

    hi, having trouble as asterisk states missing modules on new install, I ran the system-update on new install but to no avail. please advise. 73’s AP2CJ

    • Shehzad,
      What modules does it say are missing? Are you trying to use simpleusb?
      What happens if you run “asterisk -vvvr”? Please post the text, not a screenshot.
      Are there any module errors in /var/log/asterisk/messages? If so, they would be toward the end of the file.

      Thanks,

    Google+ Community
    Hello Everyone,
    I’m thinking of creating a community on Google+ for RasLink. This community would allow for faster response times to questions, and hopefully, help RasLink grow.
    What do you think? Would you be interested in this? Do you have any other suggestions to make RasLink better?

    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…[Read more]

    RasLink has a new home!
    Hey everyone,
    I’m posting to let you know of a few changes here at JL Applied Technologies.
    The AllStar Raspbian Image information has moved. AllStar now has its own page, located at:

    RasLink For AllStar


    At the moment, the page is just a copy of the old post, with a few changes. However, I’ll be adding…[Read more]

  • Jim Langsted posted an update in the group AllStar 2 years ago

    I installed the new image and like a dummy did not keep any of my .conf files. I have been trying to configure for Skylers NanoStar node using his instructions but have been unsuccessful. The unit will ID with my call sign and when I issue the *70 command it gives me a “bedelbeep” but no nice lady talking. Same thing if I try *722. *721 does force…[Read more]

    • Jim,
      It sounds like your usbradio.conf file needs to be fixed.
      If you are running with the Baofeng generating CTCSS, you need to set txmixa to voice.
      Example: txmixa = voice
      Txmixb should be set to no.
      Also, carrierfrom should be set to usb, and ctcssfrom should be set to no.
      After making changes, type:
      service asterisk restart
      If the sound is too…[Read more]

    New Image Released!
    Hello everyone,
    I’m happy to announce a new image for the Raspberry Pi.
    This image includes all of the enhancements that have been pushed out through System-update over the last eight months.
    Also, we have official support for the Raspberry Pi3! Yay!

    AllStar Updates
    Hello Everyone,
    I wanted to update you on what’s going on behind the scenes with AllStar.
    As you may know, Allstar can be a very difficult beast to tame. With that in mind, I’m working on enhancing documentation, as well as a major code re-write to fix audio issues on the Raspberry Pi.
    Also, I’m working on a fix for those of you…[Read more]

    possible hardware/software failure detected!
    Looking at the server logs for the main https://jlappliedtechnologies.com server, I noticed that the server is randomly restarting. This has been happening for the last 3 days at least. I am actively working on a fix.
    Services not effected:

    • The server is back online. The HP that the server was running on had thermal issues that caused it to restart. The bios was not regulating the fans properly. As a safety measure, Linux was forcing reboots to clear what it thought were extremely high CPU loads.
      The server is now running on a Raspberry Pi 2 with a customized Raspbian build.
      If you…[Read more]

    • Moved the server to a Raspberry Pi 3 because of the faster processor.

  • Jim Langsted posted an update in the group AllStar 2 years, 8 months ago

    I downloaded the new image on 5/13 and suffered the same “command not found” error. Good to have a fix. Which fix do I use? Am I running RPI or Debian?

    • Jim,
      You need the fix for the RPI.

      • The only people that are running the Debian port are those who I gave a custom installation script to. The script to run on a normal Debian server is not released to the public… yet. Well, technically, if you know where to look on your Pi, it’s there. I’m using the same repository for both ports.

  • Skyler Fennell posted an update in the group AllStar 2 years, 9 months ago

    I am getting “command not found” when I type system update. Running a git checkout -f, a “git add .” and a “git pull” does not fix the problem, is there any way I can get my sytem update working again?

    • Skyler,
      This should *never* happen! However, that being said, here’s what to do.
      If you’re running the RPI:
      1. cd /usr/src/utils/Allstar-build/rpi
      2. chmod +x ./make-links.sh
      3. ./make-links.sh
      You should now be able to run system-update like normal.
      If you’re running Debian, it’s a little more complicated.
      Debian users who may be having this…[Read more]

    Also, mdc1200 support has been re-added.

  • Skyler Fennell posted an update in the group AllStar 2 years, 9 months ago

    URGENT!

    Please do not run a system-update as of May 13th, 2016. Raspbian updated their image, and it breaks AllStar. If you are a current node owner, please stay tuned for a fix.

    • Here’s the solution!
      To update your node, do the following:
      1. cd /usr/src/utils
      2. git reset –hard HEAD
      Note:
      The word hard in the above command should have a double dash in front of it, not an N dash.
      3. git pull
      4. /usr/src/utils/AllStar-build/rpi/rpi-kernel-update.sh
      5. system-update

      If you already tried to update, and your node won’t boot,…[Read more]

    Urgent! The git repository broke system-update!
    If you have run system-update in the last week, there‚Äôs an issue that causes the download from Github to fail. This is caused by git detecting C compiler headers in your local copy of the repository. These headers got left behind because of a mistake I made while coding the update.
