What is the proper procedure to install only the packet forwarder to a fresh new Raspian OS install?
I don’t want to install the full Chirpstack stack, because we already have a Chirpstack gateway elsewhere. I just want to install
lora_pkt_fwd for the appropriate concentrator hardware.
I tried to clone the GitHub - RAKWireless/rak_common_for_gateway repository, then run
./choose_model.sh, then run
rak_common_for_gateway/lora/install_normal.sh. Then I copied the correct global_config file for US radio frequencies, and changed the
server_address to the correct server.
However, upon trying to start lora_pkt_fwd, it says ERROR can’t start concentrator.
If I install the entire stack from rak_common_for_gateway using the main
./install.sh file, it works. So apparently the /lora/install_normal.sh is not installing everything the same way.
I guess I could install the full stack then simply disable the chirpstack apps, but I hate to add unnecessary apps and files to the RPi.
Any pointers appreciated.
