I would like to run linrad on my Compaq 1250
I installed RedHat Linux 8.0 on the laptop
successfully and after some difficulty:
1. Got sound to work using OSS driver for
2. Installed svgalib 1.4.3
3. Went to /tmp/lir directory and
successfully ran ./configure

[main.o] Error 1"

There in no other multi-line string in
parse error at end of input usually means an

Good luck and
