[chirp_users] RPMs for New Daily Build Available

Mike hi, thanks.

I'm on openSUSE. It "installed" the RPM at the URL below, but nothing
happened. (Duh, of course, I'm not on Fedora, but I just wanted to see
what would happen. Nothing happened... :-)

Would you please post just the raw URL for the repository? OpenSUSE
software manager will try to install any repository given the full URL.

Then I could try that directly in the openSUSE software manager and see
if my system sees it.


Meanwhile, spent the weekend dodging Hurricane Irene. In the course of
that I found a chain of internet news sites ("Patch") that autopost
Twitter, email, and direct posts, as well as subscribe to tweet channels
selected by net control. Days ahead of print media, hours ahead of TV
channels for up to date current events. Plus none of the problems we
have on repeater voice systems of having to be actually listening at the
time of a transmission.


They use a commercial package, CoverItLive:


How cool would it be for D-RATS to be such a thing for D-STAR?!!

Of course they are toast if the cable system or other internet feeds go
down. So it occurred to me that D-STAR would be a perfect solution! What
with internet drops at the gateways and the extended range of gateway
chains it would be a perfect emergency alternative to the "wired"
internet (Cox Cable, et al carriers). For example, while Cox stayed up,
two different cell phone networks went down... And on Aquidneck Island
cable internet was useless as the power was out for over 24 hours.


So anyhow, will shortly install d-rats and start experimenting but an
openSUSE repo would be fun for both d-rats and chirp.

Thanks again.

73, Andy Lavarre
