Hi Richard,

svgalib is not any problem at all. There are several ways of getting it running properly, I have shown you two of them and Roger has shown
one more. Rogers solution it the one to prefer for the future:-)

I have managed to get it installed both from RPM's and tarball.

OK. So svgalib is not any problem. Someone should have told you in
the first place to use the NoHelper option with your first RPM install.

(I did not have this option because a new install of 1.9.24 saved
my /etc/vga/libvga.config file which did not have it. I will make
some updates on the Linrad home page.

I might still have a copy of Redhat 4.1 somewhere, is that old enough :)),,,being sarcastic .

Not being sarcastic, RH4.1 is too old.

If you want to run Linrad on an old Pentium or Pentium MMX you have to use something like (oldest)RedHat 6.1 or (newest)Mandrake 8.0. Later installation CDs just crash if you try them on old computers. The only modern
Linux I am aware of that installs on a Pentium 1 is Debian.
There may be others, of course. I can not try everything.

Is it known if the ALSA compatible OSS ICE1712 delta 66 drivers work on linrad , they seem to on winrad in wine, its a bit slower than I'd expect on sampling on wine.

I have no idea.

The ALSA compatable OSS ICE1712 drtivers work on winrad, at full rate.

This has nothing to do with the kernel version. The one I find on my fresh
download is 2.6.12-13mdk (It seems that the Mandriva kernel is not so stable
right now since you have already 17mdk)

-17mdk was bought out on the update source to try and catch up with the main kernel development, it dos'nt mean its unstable if the packager is tied up doing something else, you should know that Leif.

      - Final 2.6.12-17mdk

Now that shows that the Mandriva packgers are repsponding to minor kernels poroblems#

This says that the release is highly unstable. It is changed very
frequently and therefore it is a hopeless task for others who depend
on kernel headers that they follow established standards. As far as
I understand Mandriva has their own standards and the latest stable release seems to be Mandriva 10Wrong go read all the release notes.

Mandriva is now released anually, with club updates quartely .
You have been looking at the Decemcember club update with all the Christmas penguins.
The official tree 2006.0 only carries security , bugfixs, etc
NOT NEW S/W that waits until Mandriva 2007.

If you look for gnome 12 you will see its on the Mandriva club mirrors not the official 2006 mirrors

It does not, and never has done.

Was one of you ancestors related to to Robert the Bruce. ?

The kernel is the main part of ANY release, you have just got a downer on Mandriva,,
how about have one on Suse for adding all the local file structures.

I am sorry I wrote the "kernel" is unstable. My point is that the
"release" is unstable. OSS does not work. It is a fact and there is
a reason.

Surely the end product that everyone wants is a package that installs easily, does exactly what is says on the tin, and others see it and want it. I, and I suspect many others, are aware that your work in this area has exceeded expectations but is being held back by svgalibs.
I'm sure if linrad was ported to X you would find its usage grow exponetially.
And because it would look good there would be more migration to linux from other Hams.
I'm also prepared to help port linrad to a X-window.

Linrad is now available for Microsoft Windows. Surely a port to X should
be trivial but I have not looked at it because there are still too
many unsolved problems relating to the new multi-threaded structure.


I dispair Leif
