Yep, I'm onto that. I wanted an aprs gui like UIView so I could see what 
was happening. I actually have digi-ned running on the other P_Pro 180 
on a basic "non-X" RH9 install (no gui) on a 560MB HDD

So I'm not the only one!!! It has bedevilled me for the past two weeks, 
chasing around trying to satisfy dependencies!!!!!

Given a list of dependencies I could sort it out, but finding out, 
retrieving and installing them one at a time is bloody frustrating to 
say the least!

All the best for 2005!!
