Looking for the program xastir

Recommended Posts

Guest ekimyerac

Hi,

 

I just installed Power Pack II. I am looking for a program called xastir. It is used for APRS (automated position reporting system), for ham radio. I used the program in Debian 3.1, and it was easy to find.

 

So my question(s) is as follows:

 

Is it availble through RPM or URMPI (sp) ? and where would it be?

 

or

 

Do I need to compile the program from source code, which I have never done before, ?

 

Thanks,

 

Mike, KD7GHZ

Xasir is in contrib. make sure you have configured urpmi correctly. read our wiki (link at top of the page) how to install software on mandriva.

Not to be a stick in the mud, but I don't see it:

< root ~ > urpmq -y xastir
no package named xastir
< root ~ > urpmq -y Xastir
no package named Xastir
< root ~ > urpmq --list-url

Neither do I... I found a rpm with google in contrib but for a different mandriva version. I assumed that there would be a rpm for your version too. Sorry.
