Direwolf

Raspberry Pi (All Versions)

Updating & Installing Prerequisites

Before Direwolf is downloaded and compiled, we should first update our package database.
From terminal, run the following command.

sudo apt-get update

Now we need to install a library file for the ALSA sound software.

sudo apt-get install libasound2-dev

Downloading, Compiling, & Installing

On to downloading, compiling, and installing Direwolf Beta.
Remembering that each line is a new command.
From terminal, run the following commands.

cd ~
git clone https://www.github.com/wb2osz/direwolf
cd direwolf
git checkout dev
make
sudo make install
make install-conf

Finding Our Sound Card Path

Before we continue, we need to figure out the path to your sound card.
Run this command.

aplay -l

It should come back with something similar to the text below.

card 1: Device [Example USB Audio Device], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]

So your sound card path in the Direwolf config file would be.

ADEVICEĀ  plughw:1,0

Direwolf Configuration Settings

In the box below is a generic configuration for Direwolf.
This contains information on the most common settings.
The file can be found in the main directory of the users folder.
Normally this will be found in /home/pi/direwolf.conf
For ease, I would recommend copying and pasting this config to your direwolf.conf file.
