It's no longer included, so you could remove it from the script and see if fbb starts up. Presumably this script is in /etc/init.d. Some of this stuff was designed with RedHat in mind, so you have to hack things to get them to fit SuSE. Then again, some of the hamradio stuff usually lags behind which means you have to hack them around.

Hi Sid.

I will remove it, and see if I can start fbb with the script. What do you mean by "hack" ?.

Pardon the late reply, I'm still in the middle of rearranging the computers in the shack.

Some hamradio apps are not frequently updated or some like grig seems to have died and doesn't build with gnome since about 2.4 or even earlier, so you have to try fixing the build failures and no doubt fail. Some time ago I had to fix svxlink as it wouldn't build on SuSE, I submitted a fix and now it builds and runs on all distros.

No problem Sid. I removed the line with rc.config, and have ran Xfbb the whole day with SuSE 9.2 :-)

Up and with 9.1 the script always has worked ok.
The script is here:

# locate rc.fbb
/opt/fbbsrc.704j/rc.fbb
/usr/sbin/rc.fbb


I believe rc.config is still in RedHat as I see it around, so I usually have to make a guess how to accommodate that stuff on SuSE.
Regards
Sid.

What is rc.config doing in the fbb script ?.

Regards Erik OZ4KK.
