I was mainly pointing out a problem SuSE users will hit. Details of this
were sent way back in the early days of svxlink and was fixed in the
next release. Basically it complains it can't find gsm.h, checking the
user will see he has gsmlib-1.10-18 and gsmlib-devel-1.10-18 installed,
but they are not the gsm needed by svxlink.
I lost my hard drive due to yet another a bad Asus motherboard or I
would be able to show libgsm as part of svxlink, that's all that is
missing from the current version.
Details of the mail I sent 30/5/04.
Very nice project, congrats! I stumbled across it on freshmeat.net and
had to do a few things to get it compiled from the tar.gz file and
installed on SuSE 9.1, 2.6.7-rc1 kernel. RedHat and SuSE do things quite
differently, so the rpmbuild complains -----
* Add /usr/lib/qt3/bin to PATH
* copied gsm.h from echolinux to /usr/include, the gsmlib and devel
packages on SuSE don't include gsm.h.
* Change all instances of gsm.h in the sources to /usr/include/gsm.h,
hoping it would be compatible.
* Got libgsm sources from debian, built and copied libgsm.a to /usr/lib.
I've just noticed that echolinux has a libgsm.a also, so I shall have to
check to see if it closely fits with the debian sources.
When I start qtel, it connects to the echolink server, but I get the
audio problem you mention in the changelog.
SNDCTL_DSP_SETTRIGGER ioctl failed: Broken pipe
echolinux runs fine.
It would be nice to get svxlink all up and working on other distros. I'm
not a programming wizard, but I can assist in testing.
