Hi, here are a few things I stumbled across during my installation process. I am sending it since it might be handy in case someone updates the documentation in the future; I was able to sort the problems out in the mean time, so no help at this point needed any more, just for the records (and Google :-)). Firstly, I should say that I am not the kind of person who reads everything before starting: I read documentation "on demand", hi. - I was not clear if fldigi-1.3.tar.gz in the PSKMail installation archive was a modified fldigi-Version, or if the version from www.w1hkj.com/Fldigi.html would also work (which is the case). - http://pskmail.wikispaces.com/Client seems a bit outdated; e.g. I can't find the pskmailrc.pl file (is it now .pskmailconf?) It also took me a while to figure out what/how to install with Gentoo: I short list of requ'red software (before the Linux Distrib.-specific Instructions) would be handy. - First, PSKmail and fldigi did not communicate due to preceeding $-signs in the filenames in Edit-> configuration; filenames also puzzled me since i was using fldigi not gMFSK... Then I found http://www.w1hkj.com/ChangeLog.html which says The control files are: PSKmailserver PSKmailclient In the $HOME/pskmail.files directory the data files are: pskmail_out (formerly gmfsk_autofile) mail-io.log (formerly gMFSK.log) How about moving the files to this directory to make things consistent? - http://pskmail.wikispaces.com/Quick+start: Lon format seems to be wrong (no preceeding 0's in Logitude. - http://www.pskmail.org/: I wondered what the account is good for... I browsed the Wiki for a while until I found an explanation on http://pskmail.wikispaces.com/database. Finally, some information on my setup: - Fujitsu-Siemens P7010 Laptop running Gentoo - IC7000 & Microham USB-Interface II (Rig control with Hamblib took me a while, initially it was PTT-ing all the time...). Still tbd: automatically initialize the Soundcard at boot time . 73 de Joachim.
