Quadra-Inovota

Home - Inovato

I have picked 2 of these from inovota.com. This device is only 29.00 USD for the basic box. My goal is to add one of these to my mobile. The developer was a Ham around 2000. He is in the process of getting his Technician. In the meantime, David W1HKF added the FlDIGI Suite or at least the info to copy and paste the commands to load FLDIGI etc.

I’m a Noob and I’ve relied on KM4ACK Jason Build a Pi and his Build a Pi script to run Pat Winlink Etc.

I have no idea where or how to run WFview when it’s not an Intel Chip, a Raspberry PI Chip. Allwinner H6 quad-core A53
ARM v8 64-bit SoC, 1.7ghz is about a PI 3 speed/memory.

I have set up a sort of VNC using tailscale VPN.

Will the Linux command line work on this device?

Hi Don,

Looks like it runs Debian Linux. All the usual Linux commands should work fine. I suspect wfview will as well.

This looks like a pretty good deal! Thank you for mentioning it here!

Mike is the developer and he really wants to get the Ham Radio Project to work. As mentioned. David W1HCJ posted cut and paste info in the Ham Radio Project area.

If you get a chance, please try our Linux build script. I suspect it will work just fine.

uadra@inovato:~$ cd ~/Downloads

[sudo] password for quadra:

lost now.

Hi Don,

“no such file or directory” means the file isn’t there or has been typed wrong.

Can you use the “ls” command to list the directory contents, so that we can see if it is there or perhaps named a little differently? Maybe it was downloaded to another place?

I did see a wget on the script. Not sure how to get updated from that info.

Heading out as I’m XYL Uber driver. Will see what info show up later

Hi Don,

Yeah I do not see the script having been downloaded.

Try watching this video I made a while back, it shows the process that I recommend following:

Basically, you must make sure to actually download the file. Some people have accidentally downloaded the HTML of the website, for example. You then have to be in the right folder, and make sure to type it all correctly when you do the chmod command. There are just a few steps really, but each has to be 100% correct for it to work.

It is possible that you will run into additional issues once you have the script running. But just let me know, I’m sure we can work through it.

This is an Embedded ARM OS.

That should make no difference,

Bullseye is the name of the current version of Debian Linux, which the Raspberry Pi OS is also based on. As long as it has a suitable apt repository then the commands should work. It doesn’t really matter what CPU architecture it is based on as the maintainer had done most of the hard work for you.

I’ll try it.
Will advise.
