ham radio linux
« on: April 05, 2015, 10:30:03 PM »
I just got an empty hard drive and installed it in my tiny laptop
looked all over for a good ham radio based operating system
found this one
http://sourceforge.net/projects/kb1oiq-andysham/
any one have a better idea ?
if not, I should have a review in a few days

Never heard of it.  Space write it up and I will post it on the blog page too.
The only dumb question is the one that did not get asked!!

the installer failed on me when loading the boot loader,
went to fix the boot loader and...
I think my disk writer might be broken
might take me a while longer to get it installed with no working CD drive

just can't get it to install on the hard disk, I read all the help files and followed instructions,
runs fine from the DVD disk,
way to slow running from a USB drive...

my laptop does not have an internal DVD drive, so I can't really run it that way,
so I put mint linux on the computer and it works fine, likely not a hardware issue on my end
I guess I just give up,
maybe I will try again on the next version
