Hi to all.
I have installed on IS0GRB-3 the new fldigi 3.11, but as in the previous
version 3.10, the log format is in different format from others versions and
this create some problems on pskmail monitor with gmfsk.php Per (smorwo)
How suggested on february in this list from Fred WB5CON and tested by me in
3.10 and 3.11 the solution is:

Downloaded the fldigi version .tar.gz.

Decompress it in your preferred directory with:

tar xvzf fldigi-3.11.tar.gz

go in the directory:


edit the file:

and remove the row 255:


between these rows:

lfname.append(tdy.szDate(2));     <-----remove it

after, come back in the main directory fldigi-3.11 and compile it:

./configure --enable-threads
make intall

Very important!
The log in this version will be named "gMFSK.log" and will be in the main
In the previous version was named "fldigi.log" in the .fldigi directory.
So, change the path in the gmfsk.php script to have again the log traffic in
pskmail monitor.
In my server the new path is "/home/is0grb/gMFSK.log".

Now the new fldigi 3.11 will write the fldigi.log in the previous standard.
