[Linrad] Re: LINRAD and SDR IQ

Hi Leif,

another small step ..... !!
Now bypassing the helper by editing the "libvga.config" the command ./linrad 
ask to run linrad in root mode BUT when I do that ( with sudo command )  the 
program first blank the screen and after that gives a very colored screen 
good for this period of carnival ... but less useful for Linrad .... ah ah

Maybe there is still some problem with svgalib; what I am planning to do is 
to install the latest version of svgalib and see what will happen..

Running ./xlinrad ( even after rebooting after running "make sdr14" ) still 
the system do not see the SDR and ask for sound card.

I will have some time, I hope, during the week end !!

Any other hint will be much appreciated !

73 de i0naa, Mario
