        Are you using a USB powered hub??
The Pi struggles to supply power to anything more than a keyboard through the USB port. Make sure any power supply you use is accurate and well regulated.
        The Pi acting up can be directly related to power problems.

Well, I haven't got jpskmail working on raspberry yet. Maybe because
I didn't find 1.5.10 jar files :D So I tried 2.0.22. Suppose I just make
something wrong...

I have noticed about pi and fldigi, I cannot get WEFAX received as well
as with ordinary laptop,  with same usb soundcard (cheap dongle).
Picture is not as good. I think "slant" is not stable when using
raspberry pi. But it somewhat works, fun!  Also tried receiving NAVTEX,
it works also. I have received quite a lot of 518 khz NAVTEX
from Mediterranean Sea here in inner Finland with pi.

I suppose it is some issue on usb in pi, not sure. (could also be
something simple like dirty power or ground loop...) Also soundcard gets
grazy quite often when used with pi, and gets only fuzzy gibberish on
By the way, It have never worked if I also have network connected, wifi
or ethernet. That is why I mostly susbect usb driver problem.

    Have tested with Pskmail client 1.5.10 and fldigi on Pi B (512). So
    far it works but CPU is 90%.
    Will test together with the IC-7200 when i have some more time.
    How to test:
     From http://www.crusefalk.se/jpskmailinstall/
    Follow instruktions for Ubuntu to install fldigi and download 1.5.10
    make jar files allowed to be executed even those in the LIB (don´t
    know if that is a must)
    After starting fldigi go to the jpskmail lib and open
    javapskmail.jar, it will take some time to start!!
    It would me very nice if anyone that has a working rig and a Pi
    close by could do some test and see if it works!!
