Re: [linrad] OSS and Red Hat 8.0

Hi Dan,

I have ever installed Linrad on RHL 8.0 with OSS trial version
just right after RedHat had announced download available.
The installation was easy and got a 100% success.
Well, at the beginning there was a trouble in make because of
newer gcc 3.2 which didn't like Linrad at that time.
All of the trouble are now solved as far as I understand.

RHL 8.0 is impressive, it's more Windowz like desktop
environment whatever you would like or not.
However I found 8.0 eats CPU load a lot then I abandoned
to use it on my slow and old off the self PIII 500MHz/384MB.
I then returned back to 7.3.
I would go for 8.0 in future when I have more powerful CPU.

You write about KDE and Gnome etc but it doesn't matter
on any X-window manager for Linrad operation at least.
You can start up linrad from the text window as well.

I don't understand what your problem are in installing Linrad and OSS.
Why don't you write more in detail so that we could help you?
What is your OSS version?

BTW, I'm not talking about the usage of usual audio/sound like
how to use of CD player etc.   I never use that on Linux.
