2. Setting up LinPac

From the manual: "LinPac is a packet radio terminal for Linux that allows wide configurability and easy addition of new functions and special functions needed by the user." With this terminal it is easy to start some peer-to-peer conversations, which is the next step in my journey into packet radio.

1) Compile and install Linpac

cd /home/hans/src
git clone https://github.com/srl295/linpac.git
cd linpac
autoreconf --install
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/
make -j8

2) Make axlisten SUID root so Linpac can be run as ordinary user

sudo chmod u+s /usr/bin/axlisten

Check if everything is correct

ls -l /usr/bin/axlisten --> -rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 43064 Sep 20  2015 /usr/bin/axlisten

3) Start LinPac and enter the appropriate information.
