Here in Florida we are converting all of our packet switches to Linux, indeed
there is a new iso that is available at the following location that
has it all in
there, when you do the HD install it ask if you want the Knoppix install or the
Debian install, select Debian, and it will install it all in there,
just go in and
configure the ax25 files for your station and you are up and running.
Here is the address:
fadca 1.8 is a 2.6.17 kernel.
The previous ones are 2.4 kernels.
This iso has instructions for setting up the ax25 stuff, FPAC, F6FBB BBS and
NetRom also, just in case you want to do that stuff. The basic ax25 setup is in
the ax25 howto.
