gmfsk and F8
 
This afternoon I decided to see if I could get my best Amateur Radio
software running on F8. The first step was to get fftw libs on F8 and
that is done with a tarball


fftw-2.1.5.tar.gz which I compiled with success on F8 and installed it
properly. This took about 30 minutes because it is a complex Fast
Fourier Transform program. Essential to my program.


Next I un-packed gmfsk-0.7pre1.tar.gz which is the main program.
This compiled the first time since the right fftw is loaded. I installed
it properly and it runs just fine but, It can't open /dev/ttyS0. This is
because I am not root or Group uucp.


I got the nice User and Group GUI thing going and was not happy with
how it looked. I forgot to hit on Edit and setup and set it to show ALL
users and Groups. Once I got that working I was able with ease to cause
my karl login to belong to the uucp group. Had to reboot and it now works.


The application gmfsk is alive and working on F8. It would be fun to
make a RPM with this application but it has so many other things
required it never seems to work out.


Sure glad to get it working!

Karl

Well done. I saw recently that keeping your brain active can offset
altsheimers ( and I've probably spelt that wrong). Putting the spelling
aside, working with Linux certainly keeps your brain active. I've got a few
years to catch up to you Karl, but you're doing well man with working through
the problems.

All the best.

Nigel.

Well I am 72 years now and shooting for 92 when I will plan a nice
massive heart attack. I hope by then the USA will stop starting War all
over the world :-)
