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 cmake libudev-dev
Downloading, Compiling, & Installing
On to downloading, compiling, and installing the Direwolf Dev branch.
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
#Alternative install method if above does not work cd ~ git clone https://www.github.com/wb2osz/direwolf cd direwolf git checkout dev mkdir build && cd build cmake .. make -j4 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.
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.
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.
