Any examples? All the programs I've played with
run just fine on any OS with a runtime environment
that vaguely resembles Unix (which is most of them).

If a particular program doesn't, this is why open
source is A Good Thing - if you wanted to build,
say, predict on AIX/Solaris/whatever, you have
everything you need to do so. If you do I hope you
will distribute the diffs so that others can too.

There is nothing Linux-specific in sattrack, and it
has been built on all sorts of systems - read the
release notes, and the comments in the makefile.
With the exception of the soundcard hooks, the
same goes for predict.
