And as for this being the wrong place according to SuSE for items pertaining to linux for ham use,
Well, you complained about the version of a package shipped by one distribution. In this case it's most effective to complain to the packager directly (SuSE in this case).
Then how come look at the issue of axipd the dist I have suse7.0 1.0 compiled from the latest ax25 utils 1.02/0.0.4, this version works with the later 2.2 kernels, I don't know about 2.4 kernels as I've never tried them yet
ax25ipd --version yields "1.0.2 / 0.0.4" which means that 1.0.2 is the upstream version number (the one given by the author) and 0.0.4 that it is the version that belongs to ax25-apps 0.0.4. I don't know the exact reason behind this, I believe that program isn't maintained by the author anymore and evolves differently for different platforms. It should work by the way for both kernel 2.2.x and kernel 2.4.0.
Or is this some strange phenomenom which make Redhat Clones change the issue number?
Hmm, ax25ipd on RH is exactly the same as the one on SuSE Linux, which exact distribution did you try and which version number do you get there?
BTW, are you by any chance using the patch by dg2fef/dg1kjd? Some tools may indeed need a recompile then.
