A public beta for a new image is available for anonymous ftp from starbuck.hays.org — it makes setting up a Yaesu DR-1X or Bridgecom repeater using a web browser, very quick and easy.
Unzip the image file and use the directions from the Raspberry Pi Site to create a SD Card (4GB or larger)
Insert the card into a Raspberry Pi 2 or 3, with a UDRC installed and boot up.

the IP address, usually this can be found under DHCP leases on your router. On MacOS or Linux, you may find it at compass.local
(Be sure to change the password for security – use the passwd command)
Inspect the filesystem and see if it expanded to fill your SD card, (use the
df command), if not then use
select Advanced Options
select Expand Filesystem
After a reboot, the filesystem should now be expanded.
Once its booted up, point a modern browser at http://<IP ADDR>:8073 or http://compass.local:8073
If the interface doesn’t come up (give it a minute) then from the command line
sudo systemctl start dstarconfig
