Re: [linrad] Svgalib 1.4.3 to 1.9.18

Hello Stan,

Every Linux distribution has its own peculiarities and tricks. So I can not comment on Red Hat.

I believe you have to deinstall svgalib-1.4.3 and its connections to the kernel before installing 1.9.18
or any other version.

Will see you at the conference this weekend. The door prize extravaganza is shaping up well.

I was able to make the needed changes in kernel26compat.h and now I am wondering if I need to make clean the 1.4.3 before installing the 1.9.18?

I wish I could comment about your audio problem. I will see you at the NEWS Confrence this weekend.
