Install LoRa-Gateway

Establish connection to the Pi (see tutorial).

This tutorial is to demonstrate how to install some sample software that utilises a LoRa (Long Range) module that has been attached to the Pi. The method we used was to buy a Pi expansion board from Hab Supplies.

1) Install WiringPi (identical for the Pi In The Sky):

> cd ~ <
> git clone git://drogon.net/wiringPi <
> cd wiringPi <
> sudo ./build <

2) Install libraries:

> sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openss-dev <
> sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev <

3) Install LoRa gateway:

> cd ~ <
> git clone https://github.com/PiInTheSky/lora-gateway.git <
> cd lora-gateway <
> sudo make <

4) Run with > sudo ./gateway <

The configuration, such as your callsign, can be set in gateway.text
