I has been some time since I have installed CHIRP on a Raspberry Pi so I am just making a guess. Did you install the Python future module? It is required for the AT-778UV and a handful of other models.

Ah, that could be it.

Neother of these sites mentioned that module-

Will add the module and build again, ah, can't "clean" when rerunning the install-

sudo python setup.py install
make: Entering directory '/usr/local/src/CHIRP/chirp-daily-20210830/locale'
make: *** No rule to make target 'clean'. Stop.

Also the build from source section of the wiki makes no mention of installing pythom-future.

Maybe someone needs to write a wiki page on installin on a Pi?

Hi Niamh, I have investigated how to build AppImages for 64-bit Intel, 64-bit ARM and 32-bit ARM architectures. I've tested them on my desktop computer and raspberry pi with a Baofeng 888s radio and am soliciting feedback from others. I would love to know if it works for you (best to try on a cheaper model first). There are no runtimes or other requirements. Just mark the binary as executable and run it.


If I get a few more thumbs up I'll propose to Dan if we can move to AppImages.
