Re: [linrad] linrad install help Red Hat 7.2

I have a debian machine so this may be a bit different, but will give you
some ideas:

josh@xxxxxxxxx:~$ locate libvga.so

josh@xxxxxxxxx:~$ ls -l /usr/lib/libvga.so*
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           15 Dec  4 13:07 /usr/lib/libvga.so
-> libvga.so.1.4.3
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           15 Dec  4 13:07
/usr/lib/libvga.so.1 -> libvga.so.1.4.3
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root       357956 Dec  1 15:33

my libvga.so.1 is just a link to the actual library.  You might try
running /sbin/ldconfig to make run-time link bindings.  (see man ldconfig)

Also if you have libvga, but it is not in a path listed in /etc/ld.so.conf
linrad will not find it.  A good test is: ldd ./linrad (inside the lir
directory)  All of 5 libraries should have valid links:

root@xxxxxxxxx:~/src/RADIO/lir# ldd ./linrad
        libvga.so.1 => /usr/lib/libvga.so.1 (0x40022000)
        libvgagl.so.1 => /usr/lib/libvgagl.so.1 (0x40084000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x40092000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x401a2000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)

As for the modem, if it is a serial modem, they it will be ttyS0 (com1) or
ttyS1 (com2).  I like wvdial as my modem program.  It is nice and simple,
will auto find your modem, and is easy to use.

							Later, JOSH
