Installing Linrad in Madrake 9.1 is easy when you have done it more than

Depending on your computer speed, the "make" comands can take long time, 
so be pacient and take some beers... :-)

First, you have to run Linux as "root", if you are on a console window 
you type:

su root

then you enter your root password.

Second, you have to install "nasm" assembler and "svgalib"( in my 
mandrake 3 CDROM distribution nasm was included as .rpm file)

After svgalib install you need to edit a config file called 

Last thing is ./configure, then "make",  ./linrad.

Very important : After installing linrad, run "aumix" and set Line input 
as recording device.

I do not give any details cause you can follow instructions in Leif's 
homepage step by step, they are very well explained and detailed. I have 
done it here in my Mandrake 9.1 with my 1200 MHz athlon and Mandrake 6.1 
in the 486 and works great.

Everything in Linux requires a little effort,but  when it works, the 
system runs very stable. Be prepared for reading a lot of doc files, but 
you will learn many things!! Be carefull with the beers....hi.

Windows Millenium hangs here several times a day, or do strange 

PD:  For compiling programs you need to have "gcc" compiler installed, 
so select it during Linux Mandrake install process. It is also a good 
idea selecting "kernel development" in case you need in the future (not 
for Linrad).

Sorry for the bad english.
