Fedora 9 and Ham Radio Software

While looking for another software package, I discovered that Fedora 9 does have ham radio software in the standard repository. They are hidden in the “Other” category in the Add/Remove Software menu. Unfortunately, this is one huge category. I know that the repository contains hamlib and grig. I am still exploring. This is a slow process, as Fedora 9’s add/remove app is very slow, unless you have a very high-speed data line. You can only install one package at a time, and it takes forever to get a list of packages in the Other category — painful, very painful.
