NanoVNA-QT on Raspberry Pi


Corneliu 2020/11/07 05:53

Is it possible to run NanoVNA-QT on Raspberry Pi ?

Siegfried Jackstien 2020/11/07 14:01

hmm i can not say of vna-qt works on raspi (i guess it should) ... but i
do know that nanovna saver is also available precompiled for linux so
you can try it also on your raspi ... that is not directly answering
your question ... i know ... but its another software to try out :-)

nanoVNA-server is python, so no reason why it wouldn't work on rPi, if
you've got all the dependencies.

I am running it on Raspbian

Hello Michiel, may I ask how you did it? There does not seem to be a way for lazy people like myself... ;-)

I spent about 3 days trying recently, but was not successful. Missing libraries. I even tried to build from scratch but every method I knew didn't work.

Take a look here: https://github.com/nanovna-v2/NanoVNA-QT/issues/25

I get server error:
Invalid File Type (NanoVNA_QT_GUI-15dfc12-armhf.AppImage)!

Thanks Thorsten!
Somehow the download doesn't work for me. It reports "Invalid File Type..."

Thorsten DL9SEC 2021/05/02 20:50

Hmmm, intetesting. I downloaded it in mid of March. Worked like a charm and out of the box on my RasPi 3B+...
Maybe something has been broken with a Raspbian update?

Regards, Thorsten

Thorsten DL9SEC 2021/05/02 20:52

Ah, I see. Seems the file was removed from the website...

Thorsten DL9SEC 2021/05/02 21:00

Maybe you can try https://qsl.net/g0ftd/other/nano-vna-original/software/NanoVNA_QT_GUI-15dfc12-armhf-RASPBERRY-PI-works-with-May-2020-Buster.AppImage

I didn't check if it is running, but it seems to be the AppImage...

73, Thorsten

Dieter Horst 2021/05/03 12:54

Thanks again Thorsten! Will report back once I tried it.

Cheers

Dieter

That works!
Well, not really. I get error dialog:
xavna_read_autosweep failed: Resource deadlock avoided

Does this mean I need a powered USB hub? I'm using the blue port on Pi4, which I think is a higher power USB.

Don't think so. Does not sound like a power issue.

In the meantime, I tried it on my Raspi running Raspbian Stretch. Does not work. But this goes in line with what I found in the same folder from G0FTD:

https://qsl.net/g/g0ftd//other/nano-vna-original/software/NANOVNA-SAVE-NOTES.txt

He also reports that in his case it worked with Raspbian Buster but not with Stretch.
@K5ZN, which version have you been using?

73, Dieter

Dieter Horst 2021/05/09 03:18

Update from my side:

I upgraded my Raspi from "Stretch" to "Buster". And ... IT WORKS!
It comfirms what G0FTD had already observed.

Thanks everyone who led me into the right direction, especially Thorsten!
