Dragino PG1302 not working on Raspbian 11 bullseye

Hello,

I try to run the Dragino PG1302 EU868 Gateway HAT on a Raspberry PI 3/4 with Raspbian 11 (bullseye).
I use Draginos own forwarder “draginofwd.deb” as described here: PG1302 - LoRaWAN Concentrator User Manual - DRAGINO
The concentrator fails to start, see logs below.

Does anyone run this Gateway HAT successfully on latest Raspbian11?

The Hardware works, the dedicated gateway Image from Dragino works fine, but I want to use the latest OS version and install the Gateway software on top.

Log:

Maybe I can use the original Semtech forwarder from GitHub - Lora-net/packet_forwarder: A LoRa packet forwarder is a program running on the host of a LoRa gateway that forwards RF packets receive by the concentrator to a server through a IP/UDP link, and emits RF packets that are sent by the server. ? I tried, but no success so far.

Any Idea how to debug is welcome.

Best regards, flystack.

You might want to ask this question through the Dragino support channels :slight_smile:

While this is not a direct answer to your question, I would like to let you know that probably next month I’ll receive a PG102 so that I can integrate it in the ChirpStack Gateway OS :slight_smile:

I asked the Dragino Support, no working answer yet.
My hardware is ok, because it works with the Dragino GW Image.
But I want to start on the latest Raspberry OS and install a lot of other stuff, so prebuild Images are no solution.

Please let me know, if you have a working config I can try.
