Since a new Centos 6 based XIPAR release and a matching set of questions are in the wild, we are going to start a series of Sessions and Meetings.
Each one is a mash-up of Amateur Radio and Open Source Project technology. Check it out through the links on the left. It should be fun and informative.
This latest package release is based on Fedora 12 instead of Centos 5. This provides a much more current kernel, better performance and lots of new features. We can still use Centos/RHEL and other operating systems but Fedora really is the best choice now for a standard install.
The USB radio device channel driver has been completely rebuilt and renamed "chan_urd". Additional details are in the installation document.
