Holy Canoli! This has gotten pretty out of date as far as linux is concerned. The maintainer suggests giving a look to either

Those projects are based on current and maintained software.

----here is the original description----
A Debian based Live and Installable operating system for radio amateurs. hamOS contains many preinstalled ham radio applications as well as a custom menu. This respin is geared toward the newer linux user. hamOS uses the lightweight LXDE desktop environment and is therefore suitable for older hardware (I've used it on a PII 300mHz machine w/ 256mb ram).

  • I can't tell you how many ham distros I've tried through the years...too many! This one worked "right out of the box". It recognized all my hardware and so far, all the programs I've tried work as they should. It is now my OS on my desktop machine. Thanks and 73, John N5XYO
