Debian from PPA

This has been tested with Debian 7. It may or may not work with older versions as well.

In /etc/apt/sources.list.d create a file dj5qv.list.

Put this line into it:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/dj5qv/mhuxd-0.5/ubuntu lucid main

Enter the commands:
apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys A306C6B7

apt-get update

apt-get install mhuxd

Now mhuxd should already be running in the background. You may check the log file:

less /var/log/mhuxd/mhuxd.log

Perform the initial configuration on the web interface http://localhost:5052

Compiling from Source

 

Download the source from the Download page and extract it, e.g.

tar -xzvf mhuxd-0.50.tar.gz

Change into the source directory. Perform:

export CFLAGS=-O2

./configure

make

make install

This will install everything into /usr/local. If you want everything in a single folder you can use the –prefix option of configure:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mhuxd-0.50

make

make install

Make sure that the required kernel modules are loaded:

modprobe ftdi_sio

modprobe cuse

Start mhuxd on command line:

sudo /usr/local/sbin/mhuxd
