    Greetings All!

    I offered a pi or ssh access to one to see if someone could sort out the smapi problem with 64bit arm, havent heard of any interest. Since I like hpt I guess
    I have to downgrade the pi's to 32 bit and wait to see if at some point it gets
    worked out...

    Isn't it possible to run 32-bit apps on 64-bit arm? (I only have an 32-bit Pi 2).

    My available time to work on HPT is a bit limited at the moment.

    You will need to supply a minimal config that reliably causes the bug.

    I can probably replicate the problem locally with ARM64 emulation using qemu-aarch64, instead of sshing to a remote machine.

    In the meantime, before you give up and downgrade to ARM32 it's worth building with an older version of the SMAPI module and linking HPT against that. Michael
    Dukelsky has made a few changes this year to the JAM code which may have introduced the bug you're seeing. It's also likely the same bug exists for x86-64 builds but nobody has reported it yet. I only use Squish here.

    Commit aa5cf2f6fa112aac3a292f5cbd4646102e4a21be from 2021-01-22 is probably a good spot to rollback to, eg.

    # clone the repo, if necessary
    cd husky
    git clone https://github.com/huskyproject/smapi

    # rollback to an older version of the code
    cd smapi
    git checkout aa5cf2f6fa112aac3a292f5cbd4646102e4a21be

    then rebuild smapi and link hpt against it, as you would normally.

    at this moment, there does not appear to be any multilib support for any of the
    64bit os's available for the pi's

    I installed an aarch64 virtual machine in KVM, a Fedora 33 guest on Fedora 33 host.

    https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures/AArch64/Install_with_QEMU

    The emulated processor is cortex-a72 corresponding to RPI 4. I used Fedora 33 guest since according to your experiment the OS does nor matter. I used the partial configuration you sent me with the additional file

    cat ~/etc/config/links
    Link Node Sysop
    Aka 21:1/190
    OurAka 21:1/190.1
    Password

    Before running txt2pkt and hpt I exported two environment variables:

    $ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib64
    $ export FIDOCONFIG=/home/mike/etc/config/config

    There was neither a message base nor a dupe base. The first packet was generated using txt2pkt

    echo test1 | txt2pkt -c /home/mike/etc/config/config -xf "21:1/190" -xt "21:1/190.1" -p "" -af "21:1/190" -at "21:1/190.1" -nf "Node Sysop" -nt "Point Sysop" -e "fsx_bbs" -t "My tearline" -o "My Origin" -s "test1" -d ./ -

    and moved to protected inbound. `hpt toss` gave no error. The second packet was
    made the same way renaming test1 to test2 in two places. Again no error.

    Could you please repeat all these actions with the config you sent me and confirm that you get an error? Or if there is no error, please send me the specific config, packets and the sequence of actions I should perform to reproduce the error.

    My Pi4s are busy with other tasks but I am running armbian on a NanoPi R2S and compiled hpt OK. What exactly is the error. I don't keep much mail so cannot see the problem here.

    Ok I tried the rollback of smapi.. same error continued.. Something about your message got me to thinking that hey its easy to switch to squish so I did, deleted all jam msgs and polled my system, no more smapi error so far. I will wait a couple of days to make sure but looks good so far.

    So rpi 64bit manjaro hpt working with squish instead of smapi... so must be a jam problem or something related to jam.

    No problem, it is because I used Fedora and not Manjaro. You may use /usr/local/lib in the line and use /home/rick instead of /home/mike in the next
    one.

    ok so I did use the /usr/local/lib thinking that was it. There was no change smapi error remained. I did switch everything to squish and it works? So the smapi error specific to Jam?

    Yes.

    Your original message with the bug was:

    This error is only possible for JAM bases.

    Squish doesn't use subfields.
