Re: Graphical Satellite Tracking with Linux



Just out of curiosity, has anyone run some of the standard Windows satellite 
tracking software under Linux + Wine (Windows Emulator)?

I was going to try this on a newly installed Fedora Core 3 system, but I 
can't seem to find Wine in this verion of the Fedora 3 distro.
(At this point I am assuming some operator error as it was in previous 
version of RedHet distros)
