Dear all

Success at last!
Steps involved
download source svga-1.4.3.tar.gz
copy to /usr/local/src
cd svga-1.4.3
make install
(ignore errors)
cp /usr/local/src/svgalib/sharedlib/vgagl.so.1.4.3
/usr/lib/vgagl.so.1 (copy- note vgagl is not at /usr/local/lib and the
links didnt seem to work)
(same for libvga.so.1.4.3)

I tried various linrad distros - rpm didnt work as it couldnt find libvgagl.
Eventually used the source

download bzip2 and install
download linrad01-15 and copy to working directory
bzip2 -xf linrad01-15.tgz
tar -xvf linrad01-15.tar
etc as in instructions

Many thanks for your patience
Now I can start learning all the intricacies of FFTs etc - fascinating!

I have a DDS board using the AD9854 which can give quadrature output to

I will set up a direct conversion I/Q frontend using a "Tayloe"
architecture with the FST3125 quad switch and a couple of opamps.


I ignored the errors and in fact libvga and libvgagl were in a different

Good luck,

I am still struggling to get svga installed
I have tried svgalib-1.4.3 and svgalib-1.9.18

gcc seems to generate various errors when it includes various files from

I have tried this on Mandrake 9.2 and RH9.0 and two different machines -
kernel 2.4.22 and 2.4.20
Also there was a linker error - ldconfig in the makefile was not


Has anyone done svga with these latest distros? I am thinking that there
may have been kernel changes since the last version of svga

I could go back to RH 8.0 or even 7.2 if necessary, but this will be a

Thanks for your patience - at least I am learning something about the
nuts and bolts of Linux!
