Bug Report - Static P25 Groups/Hang Time settings

Post by N6MIK »

Greetings,

Unexpected changes occur in the [Network] section of /etc/p25gateway any time "Apply Settings" or a restart services is performed, regardless of if P25 related. This breaks the P25 static connections. This is repeatable on a fresh install of 4.1.5, updated, and then upgraded to 4.1.6.

As manually configured in Quick Edit: P25 GW. Pi-Star connects to all reflectors and works fine here.

[Network]
Port=42010
HostsFile1=/usr/local/etc/P25Hosts.txt
HostsFile2=/usr/local/etc/P25HostsLocal.txt
ReloadTime=60
ParrotAddress=127.0.0.1
ParrotPort=42011
Debug=0
P252DMRAddress=127.0.0.1
P252DMRPort=42012
Static=10100,10200,10300,10400
RFHangTime=30
NetHangTime=30


Any time I do something that causes the services to restart, p25gateway is modified. The Static= line is removed, and the hang times are reset to zero:

[Network]
Port=42010
HostsFile1=/usr/local/etc/P25Hosts.txt
HostsFile2=/usr/local/etc/P25HostsLocal.txt
ReloadTime=60
ParrotAddress=127.0.0.1
ParrotPort=42011
Debug=0
P252DMRAddress=127.0.0.1
P252DMRPort=42012
RFHangTime=0
NetHangTime=0

A quick follow-up: I can manually revert the changes by editing /etc/p25gateway from a terminal and applying those changes. However, any change after that (including changing the "Country" text in the main config) will break it.

Manual edits of files often won't hold. remember pistar use case. It is a managed solution for beginers, those that lack linux abiblity.

Pistars expert pages give you a little more play, but i think what you might want is a vanilla vers of MMDVM where you have full control to custom a setup to your liking.

Thanks Andrew. I don't believe this has anything to do with manual edits as it is 100% repeatable with a fresh install using the web UI and supported features. (Granted, manual edits can 'undo' the bug temporarily).
