Thanks to my godson Lasse/OH5XP I got 2-14 X_linrad a little
further and became aware of the fact how ignorant I still am
with the most basic features of Linux. Supposedly I can not
start X under Linux as a superuser if have logged in as a
normal user initially. Thus I could not run #./xlinrad !!
However, with $ xlinrad I got to the setup screens and the
Linrad start screen. After pressing A (for CW) I got some
setad.c warning and comments on attributes of a par_file.
At least it gives the feeling of being close (closer).
[If I go to superuser mode # and then back to $ ... then I am
not able to start $xlinrad any more (can't open display); but
if I close the console window and open a new one then xlinrad
works again under normal user control].
Now after executing 'make svgalib' I may have more luck in
bypassing (or fluent use) the helper_module with lir01-37 at
next reboot, but I don't count on it (ref. former experience).

Sir Roger & all!
Though I have the complete WSE-line here, I am still missing
the proper power supply (-15V/+15V) amperage to fire them up.
On the other side it is fun to build something small from time
to time, so I constructed the low noise I/Q-amplifier according
to SM5BSZ/Leif's Figure 2 in "Linux PC-radio. Optimised direct
conversion receiver for 144 MHz using standard Schottky diode
As it turned out the 2N2222A is an excellent choice for the
input-transistor. I had some 1980's stock, but ON Semiconductor
listing this P2N2222A model with plots of noise figures below 1 dB
over a wide range of impedances and bias. I used the RC4136 for
the op-amps, but if you need to steer a Delta 44 to full range
with the 96 kHz setting, then it may be better to take a NE5532
or a similar type for the output stages, with a higher slew-rate
than the RC4136.
Knoppix 5.0.1 was released June 2d and I installed it to the HD
(after CDR-boot, issue in console: 'knoppix-installer'), as my
previous linux distro had been broken due to a forgotten cause.
With all the wlr2-xx versions of Linrad I had completely lost
contact with the linux versions, and it would be nice to see
a lir2-xx run under X. After 'apt-get update' I got access to
'apt-get install wajig' / 'wajig recommended xlibs-static-dev' /
'wajig recommended automake1.9' command series. However, I still
have problems with make xlinrad and make linrad after ./configure.
There are hundreds of errors at the end for both lir2-14 and lir1-37:
/usr/bin/ld.: symbol 'no symbol' missing from main hash table
Also when trying to run ./xlinrad >>>
Xlib: connection to "0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified
can't open display (null)
Ran into similar hash table errors and the helper-module problem
with svgalib 1.9.24 and lir01-37 .... due to the linux break I
have to study again the helper module bypass in libvga.config if
that was the latest trick to avoid the issue (my memory fails).

It is apparently due to a firmware bug. Presonus' first attempt at a bug
fix apparently caused more serious problems with the unit.
I am told they are working on another fix.
I will let the groups know if/when a satisfactory resolution appears.
Until then, the Presonus Firebox is NOT a suitable device if you want to
sample a swath of spectrum wider than 48 kHz, as it simply won't do it.
