Re: FLDigi & Slackware
- Well, there's no terminal output since fldigi is running under X. I downloaded the latest binary tar.gz, which should not need the dev libraries.
The online documentation called out PortAudio as a required library. I pulled that one in and built it...make check claimed that the installation was good.
I wonder if there might have been a problem with the order I installed stuff. Since it's a fresh install, I might just do it over.

- I always forget that. I'll see what led tells me.

produced might be a big clue to the problem.

Slackware has notoriously had problems with Pulse Audio.
- As it turned out, fldigi was demanding PulseAudio. Once I had that and json built and installed fldigi came right up. Thanks everyone for the tips.
