[nos-bbs] Help with getting minimal JNOS configuration working

Why bother with the Linux implementation of AX.25, in this case? 
Direwolf contains a good AX.25 implementation which (as far as I know) 
works entirely independent of the Linux software. The Linux software 
smells badly neglected.

If your ultimate target is a PC, I suggest starting with your target 
operating system (not Pi OS). For example, run Ubuntu Server on your Pi. 

Best regards,
