WSJT 10 on Linux

Post by VK2ZIW » Tue Jan 27, 2015 8:51 pm

Dec 2014 WSJT Ver 10 runs on Linux ARM boards such as Banana Pi, ODROID, CubieTruck.

http://www.qslnet.de/member/dg0opk/Cubi ... h2014.html
Linux issues:
WSJT 10 uses Python 3 so you may need to change the Makefile from "f2py" to "f2py3"
to build it.
I generally edit "configure" and change the 3 "PORTAUDIOXXX=0" lines to "PORTAUDIOXXX=1"
and, lines with "python" change to "python3" and "f2py" becomes "f2py3" or "f2py-3.2" as appropriate.

Another problem is the Python Imaging Library. Ver 2.5.3 is OK, 2.6.1 breaks waterfalls, crashes both
WSJT and WSPR. If you have problems, use Python's installer thus: pip3 install pillow==2.5.3

Re: WSJT 10 on Linux, new modes

Post by VK2ZIW » Sun Aug 23, 2015 8:56 am

WSJT 10 r5755
Mode
JTMS
FSK441 quite a lot of use on 6m
FSK315
ISCAT-A
ISCAT-B
JT6M
etc...
How many of us, download the latest and compile and test, here in Australia?

How many try the "new" modes?

In the mornings 6m group, I've asked, but nobody.

WSJT 10 now has FSK314 as a new mode for 6 and 10m, as of r5755

WSJT-X has a new "fast" mode JTMSK.
Now working on 64bit Linux systems, as of r5834.

Who can I try with on 6m?

I'm in Sydney

More Banana Pi successes with Fedora 23 linux. (headless)

MSHV is an alternative for FSK441, JTMSK, JTMS, FSK315, ISCAT-A, ISCAT-B and JT6M.

Running FSK441, "top" reports 30% CPU usage and little memory use.

Just remember, the USB ports on a Banana Pi need a powered hub.
(or bridge out their power to your main 5V in)
