The team at NW Digital Radio have been extremely busy during the holidays. I don’t want this to be a long post, so I’ll get straight to the point.
The documentation has been updated, and a Getting Started with DRAWS hat wiki has been created.
The very first thing you should do, is go to their groups.io web page to read the wiki:
I don’t believe you need to be a member of groups.io to view the page or documentation. However, if you want to ask questions or give feedback, you’ll need to sign up, and be a member. I would suggest reading every page of that Wiki completely through, before you even get started trying to set up the DRAWS hat.
So please check out the teams index of the docs. It’s extremely good reading, and it will give you the context needed, to get set up and going. If you are successful getting set up, It would be awesome if you eould share screenshots or an images with the NW Digital Radio team, on their groups.io page. I’m absolutely certain it would be greatly appreciated.
Next, if you find the overwhelming, there’s two important facts to keep in mind.
- Images and documentation for the DRAWS are all still in beta. They will certainly improve over the coming weeks. If you’re not a seasoned Linux veteran, you may want to wait until the beta images and documentation are more mature.
- If at that point you still can’t get up and running, there’s always the DRAWS Workstation, which will be at 100% turn key solution for those of us who aren’t incredibly eager with prospect of Linux frustration.
I’ve already started working on a Getting Starred Video for the DRAWS hat. As the Wiki matures, I’ll be able to generate a video tutorial based on the latest information available. As soon as that video or any video demonstrations with the DRAWS hat are published, you’ll find them in my DRAWS hat playlist
