I think it is of interest for more people so I answer to the list.

Well, that is generally a problem of many software packages available for
ham purposes. Most of them are programmed to be installed manually by the
user into the /usr/local/ directories. Most of them provide an
installation script or something similar for this.
But this is not the way one can deal with when using rpm archives. As a
package maintainer I cannot install the package with customized
configuration files. This is something that has to happen afterwards,
e.g. with an alternative configuration script or something else. Some
parts of the functionality of Jean-Paul's INSTALL.SH are covered by the
rpm archive, especially creating the needed directories. So we cannot call
the script while runtime because it would fail to create directories.
We are thinking about a global solution for many of the ham
packages, providing YaST2 modules for configuration. But due to missing
manpower this is nothing we can do right now, sorry!
Jean-Paul, Vojtech, do you have ideas how to handle this problem?

Can somebody point out to me how to install F6FBB BBS software on SuSE?
When using YAST, it seems that it is doing half the job...
I'm using SuSE 7.0, and a PTC-II pactor/packet TNC.
At the moment I'm running FBB on a ms/dos computer, but I want to change it to
Any info is welcom.
