Ahhh, that explains it. The old missing soundmodem code trick  (-:  My
last build of ax25 was on RH6.2 therefore I am a little rusty to say the
least (when the stuff works, you leave it alone  (-: )
I looked through the ax25-tools source but could not see any way (for me)
to not include sound support. (just barely can spell "C" here...)
I will look at the Makefile file when I get home and make the change.
Other than ax25-tools, everything else compiles.

Mike and Ronald, thanks for the quick replys. I will post back tonight
after I have had a chance to try it.

Take Care,

Dale Harwood
