Description: APRSd is an APRS server program that uses amateur radio and internet
services to convey GPS mapping, weather, and positional data.
It has been developed by and for amateur radio enthusiasts to provide
real-time data in an easy to use package.
Comment 1 Robert 'Bob' Jensen 2008-02-26 09:11:10 EST
This project is dead upstream best I can tell. There may also be some issues
with how the software works, I am looking for input from some more knowledgeable
in the situation. I think this review request might need to be closed.
Comment 2 Lucian Langa 2008-02-27 00:36:18 EST
I know upstream seems dead, I know there are certain issues in operating
a APRSd gateway but again there are people using this so I think this
package will help as there are a lot of fedora users who compile this from source.

From N5JXS Gerry Creager @ TAMU:
Several issues have appeared.  Aprsd can be misconfigured to cause looping in
the APRS-IS, and often is.  The javaAPRSSrvr code has been revamped to detect
and solve this but we still see hiccups occasionally.

Xastir makes a better iGate, and if hams ask AE5PL, they can get the java code
for igating or 2ndary servers.  I'd much rather see a script to take the java
package and make it go into a predetermined area.  I'd also love to see it
executed as a non-priv user with access to the needed ports/sockets.
Comment 4 Jeroen van Meeuwen 2008-02-27 18:56:51 EST
RPM Lint: OK, but warning for using $prog to lock the subsys. I suggest using
'aprsd' instead of '$prog' just like sshd does (for example)
