When the node starts...."ofgt we...." there is no other prompt presented, 
but occassionally there is in a entry made about "queue msg (0)"  I 
entered "dx" and don't get any indication that anything is happening.

I did do a ./client KC4HW login and can post DX Spot, inquiry DX, etc.

Also, I tried the same ./client KC4HW-2 and got a PC18.... don't 
remember exactly what other information was presented, but an 
indicated that the node was trying to connect to another...  I don't 
remember handing any of the installation files this call with ssid.  (My 
forgettor is a whole lot better than my remember anymore!  hi hi)

No sysop console, that I can recognize...

My apologizes for being so much trouble.  Normally I am pretty good at 
installing packages... MySQL, PHP, Apache from scratch.  By the way, 
I am running Redhat 7.1 workstation...
