Re: Pi-Star HTTP interface becomes unreachable with '504 Gateway Time-out'

The pizero is capable of running pistar under normal situations. Its memory is the primary limitation I have run into over the years. For example if I try to do "apt-get upgrade" while the nginx web server is running the pi-zero usually runs out of memory and kernel starts to force prune processes f...

Re: Pi-Star HTTP interface becomes unreachable with '504 Gateway Time-out'

504 Gateway timeout is an HTTP error code. Coming from NGINX web server on Pi-Star. The "gateway" its talking about is that the webserver is trying to talk to the PHP data engine that renders the page. For some reason the php-fpm data engine is timing out. If you ssh into the ZUMspot does it appear ...

Re: RPI_V4.1.0-RC7 - Disk full

Looks like I have found my issue Glad you figured it out. /var/log and /var/run are just small temp file systems that only exist in ram and not on the sdcard when running under the pistar image. So under rare occasions such as error conditions or just verbose logging it can fill up before nightly p...

Re: RPI_V4.1.0-RC7 - Disk full

My first guess is something major is going wrong with the system that is generating a large amount of errors in the systemd journal as that is the only thing that I can think of that would fill up both /var/run and /var/log. Large quantities of sdcard read errors due to bad sdcards are one of many p...

Re: MMDVM stops scrolling.

Does the same thing happen when running on a known DC power supply plugged into the wall instead of the battery pack? One of the most common causes for sdcard corruption on the raspberry pi are undervoltage events. If you are running off a battery pack its possible that its not providing enough powe...

Re: DExtra Hosts file change

I was wondering if the DExtra Host file for pi star could be updated to reflect the correct IP for XLX277? My public static IP is 63.78.117.77. I did not have the Static IP when I first set it up and I went live to early so this is my fault. Was confused at your question as I have a feeling you mig...

Re: dpns.dutch-star.eu - why calling from pistar

Looks like issue been fixed in source:
https://github.com/g4klx/ircDDBGateway/ ... d505e1b284

So will be resolved once new binaries trickle down as part of future pistar updates.

Good effort everyone.

Re: Noob Problems. Please school me

in pistar2.jpg " "Modes Enabled" "D-Star" is red. Indicates DV-Mega is not working with the Pi Zero. I agree that is problem number 1. The big red flag. Double check that you have the DV-Mega had sitting on the correct pins and is fully seated on the pi zero. The PI doesn't appear to be talking to ...

Re: No longer works in V4

I add the code via windows PC and copy the file back the same as I did on version 3 I just tried add the code to the last line and that did not work. This is a fresh install only a week or two ago. Knew what was going on as soon as you said windows PC. Windows terminates lines with CR+LF (\r\n) whi...

Re: No longer works in V4

ok, just ran a test to see if error would output when I intentionally mangled my crontab file. If there is a typo or a formatting issue in the file it should be generating an error message. What is output of: fgrep crontab /var/log/syslog Should see something like the following (assume error will be...
