.19 ran fairly well, only 3 crashes in about 3000 miles recently. Most of
that was while it was trying to deal with my Garmin 12's noisy data as its
batteries were bleeding their last.
I did get it (libroadnav) built and installed from the src, apparently the
only way, and then the .20 alpha rpm for x86_64 way down the page installed
and ran ok AFAICT. And its obviously quicker than the 32 bit version ran 45
days ago. Those tigerline maps are of only tolerable accuracy, my street is
off by a good 300 feet.
One of the error messages when trying to build the library comes from
the .configure step, and names a missing wxWindows collection so it bails
out. This is an erroneous error message it turns out, the missing stuffs is
actually the whole family of wxGTK, which when I installed them on a hunch,
fixed it right up.
So that is running, now its synce that is being a problem child, one of its
comm daemons, vdccm, is packaged with the wrong perms and cannot be started
either by a user or by root. I've posted re that, around 27 hours ago, but
the posting has been ignored as of yet. I may repost that one in another
