Hello Sigurd, 

I would like to run linrad on my Compaq 1250 laptop.
I installed RedHat Linux 8.0 on the laptop successfully and after some difficulty:
1. Got sound to work using OSS driver for ES1868
2. Installed svgalib 1.4.3
3. Went to /tmp/lir directory and successfully ran ./configure
Then I tried to "make" the program.  (see attached file)
The GCC compiler version 3.2 first failed at line 643 with the error:
"main.c:643:14: multi-line string literals are deprecated
make: *** [main.o] Error 1" 
Yes, GCC does not accept multi-line strings in the new version.
Next version of Linrad will have one printf statement for each line.
I commented out the offending printf statement and tried again and now I get"
"main.c: In function `main':
 main.c:827: parse error at end of input
 make: *** [main.o] Error 1"
Any ideas?
I think something happened while you edited the file. Start from the original
and remove the printf statement again. Others have done it sucessfully.
There in no other multi-line string in Linrad:-)
parse error at end of input usually means an unmatched
I will be very interested to know if your installation becomes sucessful.
Very few laptops work because of svgalib or OSS problems.
 Good luck and 73
