New to PiStar - Need help with a dual module repeater system

Post by VA3UV » Fri May 03, 2019 12:19 pm

Hi All:

I am attempting to switch all of my repeaters and hotspots over to the Pi-Star image. All of my repeaters use the older DVRPTR modems (v1).

In one particular case, I have one site with two repeaters (VHF / UHF). I would like to use Pi-Star to run both repeaters (so two instances of dstarrepeaterd) interfaced with two DVRPTR modems. I have manually edited the ircddbgateway config file to get it to support two repeaters. My dashboard now shows Modules B and C.

The issue is that I cannot get two instances of dstarrepeaterd to work. My second instance (even when I specify the location of the 2nd config file and log file, etc...) seems to either default to a config for GB3IN - OR - I get a message in the first log file, that says another instance of dstarrepeaterd is already running.

Has anyone successfully managed to run two instances of dstarrepeaterd on the same Pi?

Thanks,

Ramesh.
