i added some more packages to the SUSE HAM Repository. The packages are:
Especially xastir has a lot of dependencies, i also added them to the
repository (e.g. gdal and proj4).
HINT: The packages are in the directory "suse-10.1-ham-extended".
Please add this directory to your Yast Installation sources. (Server:
http://dg7gt.osth.de). The old installation sources will be deleted within
the next few days.

if you have a xastir.spec file for 10.0, please just send it to me, and I will
compile the package and integrate it into the repository.
But you will need to be a little bit patient, because the next 4 days I'm on

P.S.: I will drop a notice on the suse-ham-e list when new packages are ready

during the last days (and nights) I recompiled all ham radio packages (except
tnn) for use with SUSE 10.1. I also added some packages and I am planning to
add a few more (like hamlib, xlog, and dream). The installation source for
the packages is at: http://dg7gt.osth.de/suse-10.1-ham/
There are packages for i586 and x86_64. Most of the rpms are based on the
original ones from Joerg Reuter, DL1BKE. In some cases I had to apply some
minor patches to get them compiled on the new SUSE release.
I also updated some of the packages to an newer version, for example
soundmodem, which is now v0.10 and was v0.1 before (that's really a
difference, believe me ). Package kpsk and qgrid were added to the
You can use the above directory as an Yast Installation Source.
If you are missing "libax25", please get it from an official SUSE mirror.
I recompiled the packages in my spare time, and most of them are untested. But
if you find any errors, feel free to contact me, perhaps I am able to correct
Have a lot of fun with hamradio

If you are running OpenSuSE 10.1, you are probably aware that the package
manager and updater is very broken. A patch was released today to fix most
of the problems. It requires that you use the YaST Online Update (YOU) to
get the new patches. (Zenworks crashes so it can't be used and other
If you have my old Hamradio packages for 10.1 or the older 10.0 as an
install source, YaST Online Update will crash because there are no
"directory.yast" files present. The old 9.3 and 10.0 systems didn't care,
but 10.1 does. Also, you can't just go into installation sources and delete
it. Again, due to bugs in both YaST and in my original distribution.
To get around the issue, go to YaST->Installation Source. When the message
appears about using an unsigned package, select NO. There will be another
error, so click OK on it. Then select "Finish" and the old Ham Radio
package will be gone from the list. YaST Online Update will now run and
update itself along with all of the Zenworks files and libraries.
I have recreated the package directories and iso images with
"directory.yast" entries where they are needed. This now allows you to add
an ftp installation source using my ftp site. I also have recreated the iso
See ftp://ftp.w1nr.net/suse-ham/10.1-i386 for direct installation directory
and ftp://ftp.w1nr.net/suse-ham/W1NR-SUSE-10.1-Ham-i386.iso for the iso
You will know if you are using the new files if my call sign "W1NR" appears
in the installation source description. You will also notice after the
update that the message about using an "unsigned" source will only appear
once, when you set it up and check the "don't tell me again" box.
Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. Also remember that these
are a temporary fix for the missing libax25.so file on the CD's and DVD's.
There is a libax25.so rpm package if you use an ftp installation source to
one of the 10.1 mirrors under "inst-source" directory.
