Re: XASTIR unable to start interface

I tried the first, setuid solution. Also worked like a charm.
As always, many thanks for your support.

First it is mentioned in the Xastir INSTALL file and in their FAQ
that to use AX.25 the xastir run time file must be setuid.
chmod u+s xastir
After the xastir binary permissions should look like this:
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 1178192 Jan 6 13:34 xastir
Also you could try using Xaster interface AGWPE localhost:8000.
I will add this to the Xastir install script.
